While it's true many people are getting worked up about rumors coming going, the thought that Verizon doesn't have a stake in the blame game is inane.

I'm disappointed that we haven't heard ANYTHING regarding the Nexus from VZW since their impromptu confirmation that Friday afternoon many moons ago. We hear 'before the end of the year' and that means its okay to not put out anything for nearly 2 months?

Pretty much. It's obviously been delayed due to bugs. They don't owe us anything until the end of the year.

Are you serious! I chat one up at least once per day and they never utter a word. Not even a hint. Maybe this one got so fed up chatting about it with all of us that they just made something up. Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing part of your conversation

That's the test. If store reps have no issue with telling a complete stranger over the phone, this rumor should start spreading like wildfire.

Anyone care to call a few stores in their area?


As far as I'm concerned, I'm thinking Friday. Which majorly blows because I have to be in Court that day. Thursday was looking awesome work-wise.

Jerks.

Yes. That's what it means.

It'd be nice to get a constant stream of communication, but that's not the way the world works - we are not privvy to all of the internal workings at Verizon and Samsung that might lead to delays. So they pick a safe date, and say "guys, it'll be here by then." A series of starts and stops and a constant flow of communication would be criticized equally - everyone would complain, "they keep stating release dates, then pushing them back."

So, they take the lesser of two evils. They pick a safe release date, and stop devoting time and resources to constantly reevaluating their public timeline.

Their obligation is satisfied by meeting that timeline. All of the hysteria surrounding release dates is strictly self-generated, it is not Verizon's fault.

Just took a look at the VZ corporate store hours this week (Montgomeryville PA), and it seems that Monday through Thursday they open at 9:00 am. Friday and Saturday is 8:00 am. Not sure if this is the norm, but maybe they are planning for the launch of something interesting?? <hands clasped in prayer to the Nexus gods>.

Does anyone get the feeling that sweet little Steven is starting to turn?

I'm starting to think he likes making us squirm.

^^^ I received this from DrexelDragon, last night so I posted it.

This morning I decided to try for myself. I got a CSR who was also named "Tiffany", who said the same thing about the release and more. In fact, our convo was so long that a screenshot could not fit it all, as you had to use a scroll bar. (I still have the screen up in case I want to refer to it later).

The text has my last name in it so I'm going to past the text out and edit it into this post. So, please come back here for the full text.

Steven

Tiffany: Correct, it is not on the site yet, but in some stores you can play with the device and yes preorder is next week.
Steven: ooooooooooooooh... next week. Sigh.. I've been waiting since august. I guess I can wait another week, right?
Tiffany: Sure can, because I am =)
Steven: LOL..Someone said pre-orders would start Wednesday of next week. Was that a rumor or is that real, doyou know.

If I had to guess between constant lurkers, as well as actual posters, I would guess us Jersians dominate about 30% of this thread

Exactly, that "before the end of the year" quote really was quite a streak of wicked brilliance. Officially, as long as Big Red does indeed release the phone before midnight New Years Eve, they will have met their promise and can deny to high heaven that there ever was a delay...arrrgghh, Damn you V.

Yes people have said it has a new radio, but I've yet to hear anything about how it actually performs in the wild with LTE.

I'll be staying up late tonight to see what Verizon puts in the place of that 7 day websale... if it's another websale or "My Account Analysis" I might actually go insane >_>

TAKE THIS POST WITH A BAG OF SALT THIS IS JUST MY EXPERIENCE

On Saturday I went into my local store to get a hotspot. I asked about the GNEX. The rep said "oh i just got an email about that', then proceeded to say she didnt read it but was very excited about it. I asked about a release date she then turned to her coworkers and another coworker jumped in with the standard response. Of not knowing anything.

I was at Best Buy yesterday asked another Rep about it. He said without hesitation the 8th. I asked if they will be getting stock on release day he didnt know anything about that. Then said "Ive seen the specs and they are complete junk the only thing good is ICS If you want a good phone get the Razr."

I never thought you were making it up. I did think that "Tiffany" was blowing smoke up your butt though.

But yes, you stand vindicated. Assuming Steven ever posts the thing.

We're pretty spread out. I don't think we'll all be at the same store although it could be fun if we were.

Interesting how another alleged VZW store can look at the same data and say "Friday". Whatever.

I stopped by the local corporate store again this morning (this is the one I posted about on Friday, where I spoke to the District Manager, whom, after I nearly had a fist fight with the store manager about their contract policy, did tell me in no uncertain terms that the GN was scheduled for release this Thursday, and set up a 9am appointment for me to get mine.) Anyway, this morning the sales guy I spoke with first gave me the "we're not sure when it'll be released" line. However, when I told him I had spoken with the District Manager (called him by name) about the release, he opened up a lot, and advised they do have it scheduled for Thursday, although he said they haven't seen an ad for it yet, so he was a bit reserved in saying it was a definite. Odd how he changed his tune when I let him know I had more info on it - knowing that his boss's boss had already told me, I think helped him feel good about opening up.

However, I will also feel MUCH better once VZW makes it official, of course, and am not going to be placing too much hope in the release date until that happens.

By the time it took to write his second post. He could of edited and posted the conversion. Wonder why he would choose this method??

Yes people have said it has a new radio, but I've yet to hear anything about how it actually performs in the wild with LTE.
If it's anything like the radio in the Rezound... I was in my first 4G LTE area on Saturday, and was easily doing 36mbps download and 18mbps upload, no joke, and multiple times. Unreal!

Steven, I'm confused. You asked about pre-order "next week". She confirmed. Does this mean we still have another frakking 8 days to wait??

I never thought about it till now, but the ratio of Jersey people to everyone else makes me wonder if this thread is just a Verizon underground campaign, being that VZW HQ is in NJ. Coincidence? Maybe not... (music plays "duh duh DUH").

Haven't posted in a few days. So I thought I'd come out of semi lurkdom and say hi. Fingers are crossed for some sort of big news from Big Red today and a release this week. Back to work for me I will probably pop in from time to time.

I know we're creeping into 9th release rumors, but I would like to point out the only "screenshot" leaks we've seen have shown the 8th. 3 days baby. Say it with me now.

So far there seems to be a lot of conflicting information about whether it's the 8th or the 9th. It could be possible that it WILL release on the 8th officially and 9th is when the majority of stores should have it. I remember back when I bought my Droid Bionic there were a lot of stores than didn't have it on launch date but did the next day.

TLDR: Regardless of date 90% chance we are getting it by the end of this week.
