ability to remove the crappy bloatware the carriers load your phone with that causes 99% of the drain on the frigging batterycons
the carriers wont subsidize it because of the pros so they charge you full price 650 bucks

Not to mention all the rumors about the Nexus 4 4G being released soon. Google owns Motorola but they continue to release CDMA RAZR phones.
Yeah not sure why anyone thinks CDMA is dying here in the US. Globally it never was big but in the US CDMA is strong.
My own personal comment is "google why you not start own wireless cell service?" if google started the service and partnered with samsung they would demolish ATT Verizon Sprint and Tmobile.
