Assuming there is a pre-order ... What are you going to do? I've never pre ordered.. I've always gone to the store when they open.

I already said this but I guess I'll say it again. I speaking in general, not to any one specific person. And thank you for hiding your conversation, I did not read it.

Wow, this thread has died. I'm gone most of the day and only have 2.5 pages to catch up on? Sad...

On topic, there are a lot of reports going around the last few hours of Verizon reps telling people about the release on the 8th/possible preorder tomorrow. Usually if only one or two people are chiming in saying it, I don't pay much attention (or if it's something like my mothers piano teacher's student or what have you), but quite a few people are saying that is what Verizon reps have told them. BGR and HuffPost are commenting on that as well.

Maybe this time it has some substance? Announcement tomorrow/preorder Thursday/release the 8th? Announcement tomorrow/preorder 8th/release on 15th?

Nothing is official or confirmed until its on the Verizon webpage, but knowing how they said it will be out THIS year, we've got a 50 percent chance it will be out on or before December 15th, right?

I wish someone wise with the force had a sister who could perhaps chime in a little on this, but that is probably more wishful thinking than a preorder tomorrow.

I thought their release/press stuff was usually CST? Or are you saying for official release/pre-order stuff they'd start 12am PST so that the date is the same across all continental US time zones?

Depends on when it will release. If it is Pre order tomorrow pick up late December then probably. If it is Pre order tomorrow and release on Thursday I will just buy in store

Do you have your posts per page set ridiculously high? We were on page 1017 when I woke up this morning, and are on page 1031 now. This has been a pretty active day IMO.

My original post complaining about people and their CSR sources was like 2 pages before your post so, no, it wasn't directed at you.

Tech blogs are funny. They wait for 1 to post a semi-believable story then they all post the same story and cite that blog as a source. This way I guess they can say, "well I was just saying what they said".

Don't believe anyone except Verizon regarding the Galaxy Nexus. We've learned that the hard way.

Pre-orders tomorrow? Oh boy I'm getting way too excited!!!

BTW I just solved the situation with my sister wanting a new phone if anyone's interested. She's using my mom's upgrade to get the DInc2 for free today, my mom will wait a few months (July is the next available upgrade, although I'm in the process of getting it bumped up; plus, she's the account holder) and get a better phone than the GNex, and I'm gonna get the GNex on launch day.

HOORAY!

It seems Computer world has hit the Rumor wheel, It's now confirming multiple sources, but every thing I've seen is always sourced back to the original Computer World article.

This rumor is officially self aware.

unfortunately its all just regurgitated info we already know mostly. csr's know less than most of us do, and i would go as far as to say the ones saying "pre order tomorrow" are just relaying what they have been told by someone or read offline, nothing they have been officially sent by vzw stating such. think about it people, if the bottom of the totem pole in vzw had gotten official word from vzw that preorders were starting tomorrow, it would have leaked long ago

I totally agree with his rant about the headphone jack being on the bottom. my phone is always in my pocket upside down. i really like its placement.

Regardless if I wait for CES or not, I will probably still get the Nexus. I just want to see what next year's quad core phones will look like, in case any company can convince me to wait.
pretty much this, unfortunately.

wow, what happened in here? a week ago it was like star wars 4-6; familiar characters, exciting new information, fun plot twists and turns, and an exciting ending that we all looked forward to. now we're stuck in 1-3; no han, new characters we can't make up our minds about, no new information, we know the ending, and we just can't wait for it to be over.

Questions:

1) Would that be midnight eastern or other timezone... As I recall from the DX and Dinc pre-releases, it was like 12:05-12:15 eastern pre-release.

2) Do we want to have an Irc party or should we keep it here?

Don't worry too much, I'm pretty sure we have at least 1 more day to plan it.

Edit: maybe if everyone agrees that tomorrow the preorder starts, the verizon execs will get confused and say that must be the plan. They'll just think they got left out of the loop, and won't want to speak up for fear of embarrassment.

Sorry about being being clueless on the matter...but how exactly does the pre-order through Verizon work? I normally just buy the phones outright, but in an effort to get it right away, I'm looking into the matter. Also, do you put down a certain amount like $50 that Best Buy and Radio Shack (and even Sprint) does in exchange for a gift card, or do you have to pay the full price of the phone, which would be $649+ for me? I'm not even sure I can pre-order but I'm just curious as to how it works through Verizon.

Lets hope so, we need some good news in these parts!!
If you look at my man Cartman he is all bruised and beat up with his fingers crossed. I think that is pretty indicative of how we are feeling right now!!

I think that everyone is trying to invent their own reality in the absence of VZW giving us an actual reality.

I don't know about android, but the iphone 4 pre-orders went live at 3am last february to line up with midnight on the west coast. Not that I would be caught dead ordering one, but my co-worker is a total apple fan girl. No hope of converting her from the dark side unfortunately.

The question I'm grappling with is whether I should stay up past my normal bedtime based on a rumor.

1. Is it necessarily going to be midnight anyways? I suppose they do need something to fill up the empty home page entry once Cyber Monday deals are done, but you never know...

2. I think we should move to IRC. It's a lot easier to have casual discussion there and it's a lot quicker, instead of having to refresh the thread every so often and see 5 new posts to catch up on. Plus you don't get ninja'd as often

I really hope any of the above happen, but if all these rumors of preorder tomorrow stem from the computerworld article, I fear we are in for a big let down.

I stay because I'm so deeply wrapped in the Google ecosystem. I love Gmail and Calendar. Those two are not enough to keep me.

Flash is fading, Android manufacturers are becoming more iLike with non-replaceable batteries, no SD cards. It seems the only difference is the symbol on the back.

Tick-Tock time is running out on my patience.
My MacBook Pro daughter wanted a 4s this time. It is a very solid device. I have been sorta anti-apple since the 80's, but between her computer and phone, I must say that I have seen very few negatives. In fact, I returned the Acer A100 tablet and picked up an iPad 2, another very solid device. It is pretty awesome. I have decided to stay with android phones (cant live with a 3.5" screen, old eyes...) and do the iPad 2for a tablet. Best of both worlds.

I probably missed a reason you are not considering the droid 3 for a keyboard phone. My wife has one and it is pretty awesome. 4" screen is plenty big, the keyboard is great with that 5th row of number keys, etc. My soon to be retired droid 2 has been awesome as well, well, up until the 2.3.3 update. In store, hitting the same sites as playing with a razor and rezound, they beat my D2, but not by all that much. So, unless I missed a specific reason to not consider it, the D3 is great, and it shows up on my upgrade page for $99. A great deal for what it is.

I'm preordering to get the phone asap. If it comes to the store & i haven't received my shipment yet, i'm going to be at the store for the release, and will send the preorder back.

Which is interesting timing since the Living Social Verizon $50 for $25 offer is also valid starting tomorrow (for those who ordered)..

Do you know something other than the computer world rumor?!?

Just curious, as you seem to be extra confident at a time when it seems no rumor is reliable
