I'm pretty sure Google has learned their lesson and will never release a Nexus device on Verizon Again. Google is probably just as angry as the rest of us over what a disaster the Galaxy Nexus has become on Big Red. That's probably why they called Verizon out already over the delay to update the phone. It seems that Verizon is always behind the other carriers in terms of updating the OS on the Android phones.
Verizon's handling of the Nexus shows incompetent boobery of the highest level.
