So is the only way to sync the Nexus and a Samsung TV through the HDMI cable? Or is there a way to do it wirelessly?

And you're NOT excited? Christmas comes December 8th for me! December 25th will be for the wife & kids

And MY day-counting bases off a ZERO HOUR of 9AM CST. That's when my store opens and Nexus is available. SO as of this moment we have 4 days and 45 minutes to wait.

After seeing the pic of Steven in near tears over handling the Nexus, my excitement is really ramping up!

That's a GOOD question! I'm getting a Samsung SmartTV in house tomorrow. I'll have to try it. What are you trying to sync? Share pics or videos wirelessly?

Some seem to believe Verizon may stop letting us carry forward our grandfathered unlimited plans the next time we upgrade our phones, after March 2012. This would be about 2 years after they stopped offering the unlimited data plans, and they may have no obligation to let them continue after all those contracts expire. You could probably avoid getting a new phone on discount on that line of your plan, and still keep your unlimited data plan. Hopefully they would still let you "change" 4G phones on a grandfathered unlimited data plan if you bought your own phone, but who knows at this point. One more thing that Verizon will likely keep silent on until the last minute.

We are hoping they just let our unlimited 4G data plans continue on forever.

I'm kind of glad they don't have a Samsung Experience with an SGN on display here in Chicago.

I want my unboxing to be my very first experience. Pure, unadulterated wonder.

That's why I also haven't used an ICS theme or ROM yet on my Dinc2.

Default OT Hide Poll?...






Oh, and good morning everyone! Its a friggin' freezing morning here. Anyone else get their grubby hands on the SGN yet? More insight from casual (loose term for this group of us. I know ) users would be great to see.

Steven looks almost exactly like my health teacher from 9th grade.

Actually, it's even stranger because he looks like an older version of him, like what he would look like today.

What is going on around here?

OT poll:

This forum survived for 50,000 posts with one way of posting and reading OT stuff; I just don't get the point of instituting a whole new way of doing it 4 or 5 days before it shuts down.

I guess you can tell how I voted.

Any solutions?

You could organize your apps into folders, and theoretically, have as many as you want on the homescreen.

EDIT: I'm not sure if there is a limit to how many apps you can have in one folder

I would say no to that. Keeping in mind this is suppose to be a (ugh I hate saying this) "pure" Android/Google experience (aside from Verizon apps). Take for example DLNA enabled televisions. I could stream content to me television on Motoblur but that software does not come prepacked with a "pure" android build.

If the Nexus doesn't have a DLNA server built in, install iMediaShare from the Market.

Works great.

GSMArena mentions DLNA in their specs sheet. Not sure if there is an app on the phone though.

I see a lot of people are getting TPU cases. Is there a general consensus that this is one of the best cases? For everyone else what cases are you getting? Additionally who won't be using a case?

I will not be using a case. I'll get the insurance and go from there. I was a strict case user, then stopped on a whim and never looked back. I will strongly contemplate a screen protector, but that's it.

I love the feel of the phone naked and the ability to plop it into a car dock or remove the battery without disrobing it.

i wont be using a case. i will be using a puch/holster. not a hard holster, but a leather one. one that fits the phone like a glove, not too big or small but just perfect. i've had bad experiences with hard cases or holsters that snap the phone into them. i dont like friction points where scratches/ wear and tear can happen so i have been using pouch holsters.

also no magnets in the pouches just in case. also not a fan of screen protectors, i like a naked phone and i am always "OCD" careful with my phones.

So, if the Nexus is coming bloat-free (mostly) - how to get the NFL app? Will it be available under a vendor/VZW tag in the Market?

also no magnets in the pouches just in case. also not a fan of screen protectors, i like a naked phone and i am always "OCD" careful with my phones.

I completely agree with your OCD comment. And speaking of OCD, I voted for option 1 for the simple fact that changing the forum just didn't FEEL right.

It looks like Sena is getting close on their case/pouch offerings for the GNex. They don't have a listing yet, but they do have the Gnex pictued for Google phones in the scrolling selector at the top of this page:


Sena Cases - Designer Leather Cases : BlackBerry case, iPhone case, Treo case, iPod Touch case, and other PDA cases

Are you able to feel the phone vibrating easily while in the case?

Nice!

Can't imagine that being anything other than the built-in DLNA server, so no extra apps required. (Many of the DLNA servers I've seen in Android have been an OEM version of iMediaShare anyway - so if the built-in one lacks any features (doubtful) check out iMS in the Market (both can co-exist on a phone without issues).)

For those unfamiliar with DLNA -

How It Works - DLNA

And if you don't have a DLNA server on a PC as suggested by that website, don't worry - that's the part the Nexus will play. You just need a DLNA-compliant TV hooked to your home network (mine's a Samsung, check your owner's guide for DLNA) and you're all set.

tl/dr - DLNA is a file-sharing deal specifically for things like TVs to pull media in from things like your Nexus, using your TV's remote control. Works great.

Yes. The ultraslim case is thin leather, like a pair of unlined driving gloves. There's a microfiber liner inside for scratch resistance.

incorrect. you can "disable" it like any other app from the settings menu and it will be disabled... if you want to remove and uninstall it obviously that can be achieved through root, but just to remove it and gain back the screen space you can disable it

heres the video from earlier today showing it:

I will upload a pic shortly.

If i find a pouch I like i may not use a case, but I will be ordering a TPU car to have on deck for bar nights or other rowdy adventures.

I kept my OG naked except a screen protector, but it wound up pretty smashed, the slide out keyboard is loose and crooked and there are gouges in the metal at the corners from being dropped. Which always happened at he bar.

so after much debate, and indecision, I think for me, I need the option of a new case when called for, but mostly she will be nekkid and the Sena pouch is very classy so i think it might be the one for me!
