I will keep everyone up-to-date if anything happens.

Thanks for all your info today! So will there be a pre-order period or not? It seems like if this will release on the 8th, pre-orders would have to start within the next day or two.

Don't know if anyone has already posted this or not (as much as I try, I can't keep up...). I thought it was really helpful, though. It does a thorough comparison of the iphone 4S, G-Nex, and G-S2 screens. I don't like looking at weird screenshots, this was actually helpful to me in illustrating differences between the displays.

Verizon does have a history of officially announcing phones 1-3 days prior to release on phones where there isn't a preorder.
It is safe to say then that if within 1 hour Verizon does not make a press release everyone can go to bed at their normal time tonight By normal I mean the time you went to bed before this thread started.

Welcome! It is a bit of a worry. Would Verizon completely disable hotspot functionality since they can't put their app on it? I am afraid if they could they would.

Kinda what I was wondering about... though perhaps someone who pays the $10 a month for tethering on VZW would know better, does Verizon have their own tethering app? I always assumed they just used the Android Os functionality.

On a more random note, I have a friend who is a CS major, and he can fluently covert ascii to hex. It is beyond absurd, but a good parlor trick.*

There's a red app on my ReZound called Mobile Hotspot and it's Verizon Bloatware

Just curious how many people here are developers and will be writing an application for your new GN?

My third hobby, outside of checking this website and college football, is brewing beer. I wrote a simple application for my OG last year. It was much easier than I ever imagined.

For wifi tethering they have their own app. It's not available in the market, so it has to come preloaded. But on the GNex it does not. That is a big question mark.

I'll be making my first attempt at a few apps. I downloaded Eclipse and the SDKs last week, and have the Java books in hand. I've run a few simple apps on the Android simulator, but I'm anxious to get stuff running on the GN. Should be a fun learning experience, at least.

I am. Being a student, I have no time during the year. But this coming winter break I am planning on doing only three things:

Build a valve amplifier for my headphones
rearrange/clean my awful dorm room
do some coding for fun (there is a small chance it will not be for my phone, but it is a tiny chance)

I use Eclipse at work and was very happy when I saw they had a plugin for the android OS. If you can program in Java or C/C++ then you shouldn't have any problem with creating your own app.

Once you remember that spc is 20x and non-alpha ends at 40x it's not really difficult.

That would be my dream!!! I have only been brewing for 4 years now but I tend to go over board on everything. I skipped extract brewing and went to all grain. I have my first lager aging now in my keezer.

Make sure it is a passion.....brewing for profit can become a chore. I brew seasonals and put them in cask. each is never to be repeated so I keep the creative juices going but make 4 regulars each week otherwise. sooscreekbrewingco.com...yes we are tiny.

Never took it to market because there were so many other apps that did the same or much more. I basically did it to play around only.

Racked an all grain clone of Moylen's Kiltlifter Scotch Ale last night. Hopefully bottling in a couple of weeks. The sample was delicious. OG 1.064 so it will have a bit of kick.

I'm a front-end developer with some back-end/application background.. might give Android app development a go-round once the GN comes. Should be fun and a good learning experience.

Now to just think of an app lol

Nice! That is similar to a seasonal recipe I am working on right now. A Scotch Ale using a bit of cherry smoked malt and shooting for 8% abv. Really love a good Scotch Ale and one of our regulars is an Irish Red.

I still remember some Intel 8080 binary opcodes by heart, with a smattering of Z80. Fun disassembling programs by matching up CD's and C9's.
