    Because verizon can't get their hands into it. They can't control the entire experience of a pure google phone

    I'm sure they think that the OEM Skins are a lot better, even though they're not. At all.

    A pure Google phone minus bloatware and plus high specs = AMAZING phone

    yeah but the original droid was in a different market.. You had blackberry..palm and the massive advertising push of the droid..

    now you have ios rim webos android and wp7 (i think windows phone I'm not really sure) they aren't going to be worried about the sales of a pure google phone like they were at first especially with the way android is expanding. People will come in and say "i want a droid" and think every android phone is a droid.

    Most people that don't know any better would take a skinned phone to a google experience device. It's just the way it is. I do know better, and I like most of the skinned apps. The manufacturers add functionality and aesthetic touches that, admittedly, improve on stock android.

    A large part of the problem is that android is relatively new. The oem's are just now getting to the point of having a well-optimized overlay. Anyone that ran froyo blur and gingerbread blur can certainly attest to this. They're getting better.

    And I'll be honest, the main reason I want an unlocked bootloader is so we can have functional notification bar toggles. Sure, there's some other tweaks that would be nice as well, but that's my main gripe.

    I will agree with you 100% on that...the new blur is much better than the blur that was on froyo...I wouldn't mind having the blur but the bloat has got to go!

    throw in that vzw is likely paid to install bloatware.

    Or the oem. Probably both depending on the bloatware. But I agree, it's fine if it's there, but it needs to be uninstallable. But this argument has been beaten to death already.

    All you can do is buy the phone you'd like to see more of and get as many of your friends and family as possible to do the same. And when given an opportunity to give direct feedback on features, do so.
