Google may use multiple hardware partners
There’s good news out of the Wall Street Journal, though: Google may be working with multiple hardware partners for the next version of Android, and presumably, the next round of developer devices.
This would mean that more device manufacturers can produce a new phone or tablet for release as soon as Android 5.0 “Jelly Bean” (or whatever the name and number turn out to be) soon after the new OS is officially announced. This might actually diminish the Nexus program, since there wouldn’t be a single target device at the launch of the new OS. But if Google intends to share its OS early, we can hope that it insists the first device is “pure” Android, as has been the case for all the Nexus phones and the XOOM.

Why have the bloatware and pre loaded stuff to begin with?
If they want there device bought they should put it in the hardware. Have a place in the market where you can buy and download other 3rd party Verizon or sprint apps or whatever.
