Ah okay. I got my info from an interview that an Android dev gave on The Verge. He said it was a Nexus limitation because of the way the OS handled devices with only internal memory. I'll have to check that out.

I dunno, this morning the info seemed to be pointing at a 12/8 pre-release and 12/15 release, and some of the usual suspects on twitter were seeming to confirm (or probably just echo) the 12/15 date.

As far as pre-orders go, all we know is that Hanette told Han via sms that they were ready for pre-orders or something to that effect. Not that pre-orders were starting today or tomorrow.
Why would they be sitting on pre-orders if they could just start them right away :S

And don't give me this "Verizon is irrational" BS, because if they were actually able to begin pre-orders they would.

That interview was mainly referring to how the GNex would connect to a PC, separate from the issue of using the phone to host other devices itself.

From what it sounds like, whatever switch flipped that Hanette noticed typically happens ~1 week before a pre-release happens. So that's where we're guesstimating the 12/8 pre-release date. But perhaps it is a precursor to a full in-store and online release. I'm betting on 12/15, though, so I can be pleasantly surprised if it happens 12/8 but not disappointed if it doesn't happen on 12/8.

I tried the VZW ones as well. Like most of the dry application protectors, they just don't hold up over time. They are smooth and clear, though.

Nice write up, but I'd like to respectfully take issue with this one.

The "smudge-free" Zagg Invisible Shield does indeed have the orange peel surface, to the point that it's completely useless imo.

The plain one is absolutely smooth, and very easy to swipe text with. This one does have a noticeable resistance when pressed - but I find that I can get high response by using the lightest touch imaginable.

Anyway, I'm still going to try the Steinheil Crystal, but I thought it fair to chime in my observations as a counterpoint.

I don't understand why people stay up every night expecting a midnight release. I don't think they'll sell out by the morning XD.

Isn't there some sort of "oil repellent" (sorry, don't know the technical term ) on the actual screen? Will putting on a screen protector make that go away?

Not to be a jerk, but haven't you been saying "possibly preorder tonight" for the past 7 days now? If it does actually happened when you say it, I'll still love you forever, but I think once a day everyday for the last week you have been guessing this haha.

oleophobic.

and yes, the GNex screen supposedly has it. adding a screen protector would make that go away, but you could always get an oleophobic screen protector if you're concerned about it.

No -- you're thinking of USB Mass Storage which is different than USB On The Go.

After watching too many videos of people enjoying the new features of the Galaxy Nexus, I had a question about the panoramic pictures that our highly desired phone is capable of producing. What is going to be the best way to view these things? Will it be as simple as sending them to facebook for all of our friends to see?

I imagine that some of the fun of these pictures is being able to look around at what's going on, similar to gigapan-type images. Should we just expect really wide images? I was just curious to find out if you guys knew of anything that could display the panoramas in their full glory.

Now the Razr isn't on Verizon's home page. Getting ready to showcase a new phone I hope so.

Except since today is still Thursday, next Thursday by definition is the 8th. I would say its more evidence the RELEASE will be the 8th.

Need some advice. I rented the RAZR knowing I was going to return it for the GNex once it comes out. Should I return it prior to the 8th if that's when pre-orders starts or should I just wait and return it that day if it's for sale in stores?

The text said don't make plans NEXT Thursday, which is the 8th. How does that lend more creedence to the 15th?

Why? What evidence? We've seen a bunch for 12/8... one for 12/11 and just anecdotal for 12/15. Why do you say that?

Wow, that's crazy. Wonder what kinda of lift coefficient it has compared to normal helicopters along with efficiency? If its comparable or better, the military should really look at it.

We all should be happy if it comes out by the 15th, considering Verizon could seemingly care less about selling the nexus. I for one, will believe it when I see it in my hands, because of their attitude about the phone.

I don't look forward to going through this again 2 years from now (hopefully).
