Mornin, folks. Looks like a bummer of a night for those who stayed up
And, I seriously had my first dream about the GN last night. I was up all night, got up on the VZW page and there was this streaming ads about the Nexus in all it's beautiful glory. Got up early this morning, got on the same site and what do I see. The LG mother*&^#$ Octane?!?1
Ah well, least I have the day off to relax.

My Verizon Store in Tampa FL has the "Nexus Prime" advertised for release this morning when they open. I'll update everyone if they can deliver...Don't know if a manager jumped the gun of if its a soft opening? Anyone else hear this?

Fingers crossed in Tampa!

And now we can add the NOKIA N900 to the list of phones with ICS:

Wait, what? Did they hang banners in their windows last night? Or was this just a (happy) dream?

Good Morning GNexers. Had 500 posts to catch up on, but no GNex. With 4.0.2 rolling out yesterday, I am currently inclined to believe that there is/was some issue with the phone, serious enough for Verizon to hold it up. But now that it is hopefully fixed, we will see a fast rollout by Verizon to maximize 4th Q sales. Maybe we will get an announcement today!

Although I'm optimistic about an imminent launch, lets think about the fact that they still have to finish testing on this build, right? It could take a day or two if everything is good, or could take another 2 weeks if something turns up funky still. I'd LOVE to know what the 4.0.2 build FIXED exactly and why VZ (apparently) waited for this build to be finished.

It may be unlikely but I don't think a preorder today is completely shot. I don't think they would start preorders without an announcement but we may see an announcement later today that says preorder now.

I agree, I would love to see the changelog. Anyone think we can get that?

Samsung aims to beat 2011 smartphone sales estimates

So Samsung is aiming to end 2011 on an extra high note. I can think of one way. We shall see...

Good morning sexy Nexians. Let's see if we can play nice again today. I know we have no new news but I like days when we play nice, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And I know our mods like it too cause it makes their work that much easier.

If I recall correctly, the last "insider report" just before the 17th was that 5 days of testing were typically required for a build to be approved. That was in anticipation of a Nov 21st launch.

Let's hope that yesterday's revision was minor, just enough to address whatever bugs were found the first time around, and it's smooth and F A S T sailing to release.

I think if they are already pushing the build it's been tested. Lab test would come before an actual OTA soak.

One thing someone mentioned was that P3Droid tweeted a while ago he had 4.0.2, so perhaps yesterday was more of an OTA, than a test build... It could already be ready to go...

You all realize that the 4.0.2 news yesterday was old news right? P3 tweeted he got it over a week ago.

I have a good feeling about today. Of course, I didn't leave my coffee on the roof of my car this morning, so it could just be that

This morning my horoscope reads: "You will be linked to the stars today." Naturally, that means that the Galaxy (stars) Nexus (link) will be announced today. If this happens, I will reconsider what I think of astrology...

Didn't P3 get this update? Maybe someone could convince him to fill us in. I'd be pissed if it was a just a minor bug fix...

It would be reasonable for testing to finish in about 5 days, ship devices to store in another 2 or 3 days, right on time for a 12/8 release... (wishful thinking?)

That would absolutely make my day. I woke up this morning and naively thought that MAYBE I would just happen to be lucky and find the pre-order teaser up on the VZW site. Obviously, I was very sadly mistaken...

So would that have been in advance of the volume bug? Not that P3 would have been exposed to that problem (presumably).

Well, I'm in the car and on my way to Tampa now (though I wish they would have had it on sale 2 days ago when I was there).

What if they lose count halfway through verifying it... It would just mean you have to wait that much longer.

It depends how aggressive Verizon wants to push it.

During the BlackBerry Storm release in '08, there was a last minute OS update. Stores returned most of their stock to some central Verizon location to flash the phones, but a bunch were either flashed or OTA updated in-store for immediate sale, and new stock was overnighted in to keep the inventory replenished. (And as much of a dog as that phone was, initial anticipation and demand was pretty high.)

But then again, no stores have any inventory as best we know, so perhaps this is a moot point.

P3 has said on multiple occasions his phone has never experienced the problem. I think it was a confirmed problem related to the 2G freq overseas, so VZWs being CDMA/LTE, that makes sense. Only thing that has me worried is after P3 got that update, he started his delay talk again. But with the release being flexible, no rumor is based on any set in stone fact.

Good morning everyone. Well all this wait made me a little upset, and I have decided to take a different direction. I made the jump and ordered a Nokia N9. Received it yesterday, and it is an absolutely gorgeous phone. Played with it all day yesterday setting things up and loading applications. I already knew going in to it that there is no where near as many apps for Mego as there are for Android or iOS, but every application that i need I was able to find in Ovi Store. Good luck to all of you. Hopefully Verizon will release the SGN very soon to everyone that is still waiting. Good luck to you all.

Eh, I'm not too concerned. That's why you have to look across multiple reviews and also other user experiences (at least with GSM versions). Other reviews peg the battery life to be rather average for a smartphone of that caliber, and others have said performance has been rather good. Also I wouldn't use any of the current reviews to gauge battery life as LTE will be sure to be less then ideal for most. At least you can swap out batteries or hopefully an extended battery will be available for those that want it.

I have found battery life can vary widely depending on your location. I have always.found reviews on poor battery life don't correlate to my experience, but I live in an area with excellent coverage.

Right, that's what I'm saying -- not that P3 would have experienced the volume problem here, but assuming 4.0.2 is the fix for it, and assuming Samsung would want to fix it on all devices regardless of radio type, I'm wondering if P3 had 4.0.2 on his device prior to the volume bug being public?

Of course, there is a good chance Samsung was aware of the volume bug prior to it becoming public, and they held further shipments until they could verify the cause and work out a solution. I'd accept that as a plausible explanation for Verizon's delay.

Where at in tampa? I live in clearwater. I may take a trip to the verizon on gulf to bay today if true. At this rate I could have gotten a galaxy s II, rooted the crapware off it and been done with it. I may end up waitig a while it seems like nexus phones seem to have some issue out of the gate. I had a nexus s 4 g that had the receptions problems and it was three months before they ever came out with a fix for it.

Btw, does anyone know if they still have the google voice integration crap on it? On the nexus, my texts and email were fubar which is a problem because I communicate with my service via texts when Im working.

Same here. My battery drains faster at home, even when not being used much, than at work.

Personal opinion: its too square for my tastes. I like the rounded corners on phones. BUT that's why so many designs are out there. Make the masses happy with choices. Now if VZW would just make me happy..... *sigh*
