Two concerns on the G2...what type of screen (oled or ips lcd?) and battery (removable or not and size). I've never owned an LG, so I'm not familiar with their design standards.

No doubt. Not familiar with Sammyz, but it sounds like I'd better study up in a hurry. And with specs like the G2's, I don't know why there wouldn't be good dev support.

Moto X for me. I passing on high specs this time. I'll use the X while patiently waiting for the Nexus 6.

One other thing. If you didn't order your Chromecast by 3pm yesterday there is a good chance you don't get the promo of 3 months free Netflix.

Could either be a lot, or could actually not be that much like what happened when the Nexus 4 launched.

My Chromecast shipped this morning, very excited to get it. Not sure how long it will take to get here, but hoping to have it by mid-next week.

I'll post up some pictures / reviews for everyone.

Morning folks! Heading to Panama City tomorrow for a short vacation

Got 4.3 flashed on my N7 and it seems to have made some improvements in performance...who knows...could be a placebo effect.

Doh. I downloaded it last night then got distracted and forgot to install it... Looking forward to the user controls, will feel better knowing my 6 year old can't see anything I don't want him to.

My Chromecast is now listed as shipped and is scheduled to be here on Monday.

If I wanted to drive an hour away from a here I could get the new N7 at a Best Buy. Some stores are selling it now.

Hmm, after watching the video demos on DL, I'm very intrigued. Hopefully it comes back into stock somewhere soon.
I'm likely to go the Amazon route before Google Play.

And for those looking to score an N7 early:

Yeah once and a while you'll get it on Saturday via Lasership, etc.

Just waiting for my Google Play tracking number to be active so I can see its ETA.

Edit: It will be here Wednesday, woot.

A nearby Best Buy is showing Chromecast in stock. I'll be going by there tomorrow so I may stop in and see if I can grab one. I'll cancel my Amazon order if I can.

I checked BestBuy website again and a couple more stores are now showing the N7 as available...except mine. I might stop there before work because I've gone there for stuff before and they are horrible at updating and not realizing they have something in the back. I've gone there in the evening of a release day before and they had no clue.


Decided to just order from Amazon, it will be here tomorrow. I probably won't be here when it comes since I'll be leaving town at about 3 on a date and going to see Aries Spears(MadTv) at the Improv.

Actually, there was a leak for it. I saw the story the day before. It was seen in a line of code, I think, but nothing was known about it.

So it was sorta leaked?

But is was good to be surprised for once. Usually everything is out before events and all they are is conformation.

I kind of agree. I was really hoping for the S4 Active to be on Verizon and disappointed when it wasn't. Thankfully Lifeproof finally came through after 18 months of coming soon

Hello "kids".
You guys have always been so patient with me that it's easy to pop on every once and a while and ask an old-lady question. My Galaxy Nexus seems to be slowing down, and while I have enjoyed it so much, it IS time for an upgrade.
The big "tv sets" that everyone are beginning to carry around are too big for my hands. Been looking at all of the mini's coming out. I can let go of some of the bells and whistles this time around. (Although I still need it to be cool because my friends are convinced that I am a "techie", Haha).
Thank you in advanced for your input. Grandma loves ya!

Thanks Stigy, grabbed it this morning, my local only had one in the back, wish there were more considering that they are fetching $50 to $60 on eBay.

Glad to hear it worked for you -- I am going to try one more store today.

Went to another local one on my lunch break and instantly got rejected by the manager - he was kind of a jerk so I didn't fight it and just left.

The gentleman I dealt with just entered the code from the coupon and it went right through, they don't have to make the decision, the system will decide for them.

Just saw where some Staples stores are selling the new nexus 7 and honoring the $30 off on it.

I think that coupon ends Sunday so if they are selling it now they should be honoring it.

This review just discredits anything CNET ever says in the future. I don't even know what to say.

Hey y'all. I feel like I haven't posted here in a while.

I have been lurking however.

So, who's running 4.3?
