Pretty good for a phone camera and cute doggy! I have a cat, her pic is in the thread where we were posting our photos a while back. My house is the reverse of most on here, me the wife is the car and gadget freak. I have to drag my husband to the lake mirror classic.

I love this fact! (And I remember the kitty - she's cute too!)
It's kinda like Dawnierae in the pre-release thread. She says her hubby was sprayed with anti-tech goo

Just picked up a razr... now im debating on selling the razr and getting the nexus the more I read about it.
few questions for anyone that knows?
Anyone know when the razr will be getting ICS?
When does the nexus release ( ive seen dates that range all over the place)
Will it be 32 or 16 gig? ( ive heard the 32gig will be released first with the 16gig to follow sometime.
I've heard 299.99 with contract. Accurate?
Would you dump the razr for the nexus?
I am seriously considering it, just looking for more opinions.

Chief and your thoughts are helpful to know for a noob like me. Kept feeling like I really should do it, though I didn't know what I'd do with it! Thanks for letting me know it is okay not to do it.

And I can always change my mind down the road, if I suddenly become awesome like you guys, but doubtful!

I'm thinking I'll unlock and root right away.

I have no plans to customize this one like I did my Droids, but I like the backup/restore options and flexibility of a rooted phone.

That was my initial thought as well but I believe EarlyMon gave a non-rooted backup program that I'll check out. I like flashing roms on my Dinc so I'm used to setting everything up and it doesn't bother me to know I'll eventually do it to the Nexus.

can't wait for this phone, got a razr and have been loving the phone. but,as my girlfriend pointed out, I keep comparing the device to the nexus. Just the other day i was showing her the screen and how bright it is, only to mention the nexus and how its even better!

hopefully i dont get run around trying to exchange my razr!

I have Backup Pro on my Droid which does a really good job of backing up everything even if non rooted. The difference is with a rooted phone, it can also backup/restore the apk data (so I don't lose my Angry Birds level )

There is an app that backs angry bird data to cloud (called angry birds backup or something similar) No root required!


Now wth is this Galaxy Nexus thing-a-ma-bob you guys/gals been talking about?

i've been really tempted to, it's only a few days so it's not a huge deal, and since there wasn't tons to do with a rooted razr that stock couldn't. it's really just a matter of principle not rooted = poopy phone :P

i know how you feel, i've had this razr for over 3 weeks and haven't rooted it because there is no "safe" method yet. i am dieing without AdFree, it is one of the best benefits of rooting IMO. my apps have never had ads, so i never got used to them... now they are all i see. even though they only take up a tiny portion of the screen, it is so distracting when you have never had to look at them before. not to mention that the ads are the only difference between a lot of "paid" and "free" versions of apps.

Still can't get over the insane amounts of irony that this launch is being so poorly handled while Samsung has the balls to play the Apple parody commercials for their #nowaiting campaign. Irritating to say the least.

I passed the Samsung building on the turnpike on my way home Sunday and wanted so badly to paint a sign that said Make Verizon Release the Nexus on their door.

Those are great commercials! I just wish our Samsung 4G smartphone would come out so we can, in fact, show it off...

Right now we have to be the laughing stock of the Fruit community

I like the calmness here. The "other" thread is getting too manic/depressive for me.

As usual, nice job on the avatar. As much as I enjoy the daily change, I'm looking forward to the SGN arriving so you can stop.

The title pretty much is the plot. It's a hot tub time machine.. transports a group of friends back to the 80's of their youth.

Poor OTD. Had the Nexus in her hands, bought and activated! But Verizon removed the code from the system and they couldn't complete the transaction... had to reverse it all and give it back...

I refuse to go to a store and play with it or try and buy it because it'll make things sooooooo much worse

My Galaxy Nexus is in the mail, I should receive it by the end of next week. I'm more excited than a 5 year old with a free shopping spree to a candy store.
