Anyone know if they will have the standard Verizon anti scratch screen protectors available at launch? I don't like the anti glare ones, and if they aren't going to have the anti scratch ones I will have to spring for a different type.

For me a dock is mandatory. Silly as I know this sounds, I wouldn't even consider this phone if one weren't going to be available for it.

I can understand why they wouldn't say anything -

It's a HUGE, multi bazillion dollar corporation - they don't go around just making promises about hardware on their system, there's a process that they go through and each little box has to be checked off before they go to the big kahuna and tell him they are ready for prime time.

If a single board member chides the CEO for a mistake more than one head would roll....

SO, are you going to give up your 1.2 million dollar salary to keep a bunch of geeks happy?

I only ask cause I never really thought about it, but what's the pros versus cons regarding a horizontal or vertical dock? I've read a good deal of posts where folks say which one they like better, but never why. Thanks in advance.

I think the scratch protectors are already at the Verizon stores.

Hm. Since the NFC is built into the battery, I get the feeling we're not going to ever see an official extended battery for the GNex. Far more cost-effective to not produce two different batteries supporting the technology. As it is, I'd bet a GNex spare battery would cost about what a regular smartphone extended battery would.

Keep in mind that the thread on AC that said grandfathered unlimited would end on March 2012 also said the LTE SGN had been renamed to Nexus Prime. I think we can all agree that is bunk, so all of the info probably is.

There's an extended battery included in the Korean/Japanese version IIRC.

Q: What's better than a GN in a week?
A: A FREE GN in a week courtesy of your boss.
I kind of know how you feel, with me winning that $250 at work, my phone will be free too after my loyalty discount.

Horizontal dock for me. My OG Droid + dock has been my alarm clock on my night stand for the last two years. Nexus will take it's place.

Bought the car dock for the OG but hardly ever used it. Easier to toss the phone in one of my cup holders.

Wish one of them used the Phandroid app. Would love to see what that does to the battery.

Debating to buy a dock for my OG droid and turn it into a dedicated alarm clock, or one for the nexus and just use that.

would love to use the OG droid as a dedicated in-car gadget for music, podcast and gps but no way to get mobile data only

Protective Decal Skin Sticker for Samsung Galaxy Nexus case cover GXnexus-313

I'm going to venture a guess and say that skin doesn't cover the screen at all. Probably just a custom skin with matching wallpaper...

I really appreciate all the thanks so far and I will update you guys if I hear anything else related to launch and preorders.

Since you're probably not a fanatic like the majority of us, you probably won't see this. But I really appreciate you giving us these updates. You could very easily remain silent and avoid some of the negative comments, but instead you've taken the time to give some pretty insightful information. Thanks too for offering to give us updates when you get new information. THAT will go a long way I promise. Very cool of you and thanks again.

I think it's worth it. I have never had a dock and have always wanted one. I'll definitely get the desktop dock. This phone is going to be my wireless router, music player, alarm clock and much more. I definitely need the convenience of a dock this time.

Also, sorry I have been absent lately guys. Just started a new job and got married. I keep up with the thread everyday though. Keep up the good work. Looks like we are close!

Just a funny anecdotal story about how the Nexus could be a huge seller for VZW:

A friend of mine posted on facebook about being "tired of waiting for the [N]exus."

He is the type of person that doesn't even know you can root a phone, and honestly, he sent me a text message the other day asking how to remove a homescreen shortcut on his DINC (after owning it for over a year). Yeah, that type of user.

He had quite a few comments from other "typical" phone users stating that they themselves were waiting also and did not want either of the Rs and wanted "the phone with the new version of droid [sidenote: CRINGE] and had the bigass screen."

The way Verizon has completely mishandled this launch, I almost want them to not make any money off of it and it to remain a niche demographic phone. However, I would prefer Verizon to realize that people do not want their bloatware, oem skins, and incredibly delayed updates. Perhaps this will be the impetus for Verizon to realize Nexus phones are the way to go and will clamor for the next Nexus phone and bend over backwards to Google's will like they do for Apple.

This may be a dumb question, but what is the benefit if using a dock? Are you tansfering files using the dock? If so, can't you just use the usb port?? I'm just curious - not really sure what the benefit of a dock is.


Wow! I am so glad I looked this over before posting. I;m not going to tell you what word I misspelled, but it would been funny (sort of)

I have one on my iPad. It's actually really cool to have the wallpaper match up to the skin perfectly. If they have one for the Nexus in a design that grabs my attention I'll get it. Their customer service is top notch as well

Where you trying to buy a particular phone, or just asking them to move the upgrade up in general? I have an annual upgrade available now, and my last NE2 discount coming up in February. I called and asked if I could get my NE2 moved up to now (secretly, my intention was to by the Gnex from Amazon, since they don't recognize annual upgrades, only NE2 upgrade dates).

Anyways, the CSR I spoke to made it sound like she couldn't just move up the upgrade, but if I wanted to buy a specific phone (over the phone right then) that she might be able to do something for me. If you call when/if a preorder starts, you may get some help then, or go in the store on launch day.

Looking forward to that, for sure. It's killing me using the Rezound without a night stand dock while I wait to see if I'm taking the GNex plunge.

We all know about it here. She was attempting to do a preorder, with an early upgrade for me, but, after some time, she told me her computer would not allow her to add the gnex to my order. She gave me her direct email and told me she would be happy to do an early upgrade for me as soon as it became available.

The way she sounded made me think it was going to be real soon. I asked her about the 8th, but she couldn't confirm. When I hung up I got an email from her.

Those of you not eligible for an upgrade yet, don't fret, I'm sure all csrs are able to authorize early upgradeable. VZW wants you to sign up for 2 more years!
That's going to be an awkward call, when the preorder goes live at 1:00 AM

Edit: Email, I can't read....Doh!

If you don't like the stock messenger app on android, which I do not, Handcent messenger is an amazing messenger app, it has way more customization than the stock and the functionality far surpasses stock.

It also gets updated regularly for support of newer devices as well as bug fixes. I've been using it since I first started using android on my Moment when the Moment was still a new device.

Thanks! I knew about porting numbers...what I was wondering is if I had to let my contract go up for renewal, and just reup 2 of the 3 of my lines (letting hers lapse), or, does she in essence have her own contract (let's say her phone number has it's own contract), and we just have to wait out hers to end? I'm just not sure how it works because she's an add-on.

Exactly. I have one on my nook. Not on my phones, tho. Im guessing that pic is a render and they just didn't realize the buttons on the phone weren't physical anymore so they showed them covered. No way the skin extends onto the screen.
