so i was reading this article

and it says "Powered by a stock version of the Android™ 2.2 operating system", does that mean there's no bloatware and it's just like the Nexus? if so, there seems to be no greater phone than this one.

The G2 is stock android and it still has some bloatware not a lot but its still there. This will probably be near stock experience just like the G2!!

Seems like a great phone tho!!! But im sticking with my Nexus, there is nothing like a google supported phone!

Edit:
These are all the apps that will be preloaded on the device

Stock Android but I prefer by updates being handled and maintained by Google especially with open sourcing kernels etc.

Although, LG does look really good in the Android game. If they live up to updating their phones in a timely matter. They're definitely going to gain the respect from the Android modding community.

I owned a G2 and it looked like stock android but it totally wasn't. Cyanogen actually commented on this issue when porting CM6 to the device, he said it was not stock android and had lots of htc elements in the build. You will only find stock on the n1 or the ns natively
