When you click the "buy now" it goes to registration page.

Yeah and last night I think only one or two of the index screens said buy now, but now they all do. Still register only in the buy now pop down though.

Let me tell you though, parallel parking is a huge bitch with no power steering. Still one of the most fun cars to drive around. EVERYONE looks at it. It's so funny.

As one of the offenders, sorry guilty as charged.. however, please take the time to read the first post in the thread. This is a bit of a lounge-type thread where off topic stuff is allowed. Like you, some have had issues with it at times.. however it can be used as a bit of a measuring stick. If you're seeing a slew of off topic posts, there is likely no new info. Trust me, we'd all be atwitter about it if there was. Also, the most recent info tends to be in the first post. Steven and the other mods keep it pretty much up to date with rumors, leaks and pics.

And honestly, IMO, the off topicness here and there is part of the thread's charm and has contributed greatly to the sense of community here. I've commended them privately before, but Steven, Early and OTD have done an amazing job of keeping us relatively on track and civil (though some of that has to do with the wonderful folks posting here as well) without throwing the mod powers around willy-nilly like I've seen on some boards. They deserve a lot for helping to forge this community into what it is today. This isn't really a thread, it's a conversation among friends and that's quite frankly just awesome. I'd not go anywhere else for news without bringing it back here to my Gnex family because this place is like home, and the only thing I thank Verizon for with the delays is letting me spend just a bit longer with the great folks here.


...but since you're new here I'll refrain from the off topic stuff for a bit to raise the signal-to-noise ratio on GNex news since I've got nothing today.

I wish the anonymous person wasn't anonymous. We could be pestering him/her about every single thing, instead of killing time off-topic...

edit: hey mods, what about letting the person set up a second account, just for a week, with no identifying features, to tell us about the phone?

Well I was so close to getting my Nexus today. Called a Radio Shack and the guy told me he just got a shipment in with only 1 Nexus phone. I told him I'll be there in 30 minutes.

We got to the point that the phone was activated. When he tried to run it through the system it wouldn't let him go any further. He called a few people and realized he wasn't allowed to sell it.

He then proceeded to call Verizon to reverse the activation. I was sooo close.

It definitely doesn't feel cheap and has a real solid feel. Thinner then I though it would be.

6 more days!!!

So, I couldn't wait.

Being the conservative type (personally, not politically, though there is nothing wrong with that), I was waiting until my GN was on order until I did this, but since that's not happening, I decided not to wait any longer...

My good old Eris has been rooted!

Maybe the one who snagged it is posting as normal right now, pretending as if he didn't get one, so no one would get in trouble.

Can someone show me any evidence to suggest the 12/15 target date? I saw an email earlier but it looked a bit shady...

Not doubting (yes I am), but I was curious if I missed the memo

I've decided to kill time by trying to get my hands on the Best Buy Ad for 12/11/11. I want to see if they advertised the Nexus in that ad.

Which brings me to my theory with all of this crap. No one advertised the Nexus (except Best Buy back on 12/1)...it makes me feel like it wasn't ever supposed to be released yet. Still something very strange about all of this.

I agree, its thin and light for the size, but feels solid. I fell in love with it all over again today when I got to demo it.

My good old Eris has been rooted!
Congrats! I think I'm going to take the plunge and root my OG Droid this weekend.

I agree, but it has to be killing them not to share... That is why I suggested the second account. That would solve the issue right?

Yeah the upside to the lack of power steering is you feel everything in the road. It can deffinitly make low speed or stopped turns a b*#ch though!

Not a bad idea, but my guess is they are reading this thread now and then between playing with their new toy (and yes, slightly jealous over here). Also guessing they are passing stuff to OTD as they did originally.. and quite possible she is out and about somewhere rather than on the forums.

So Anonymous.. share the info with Steven and Early too please.

Not doubting (yes I am), but I was curious if I missed the memo

When I got home and pulled the phone out of the box I seen they called & texted, they were frantically trying to reach me of course I knew what it was it was all about.
I consider these people friends and wouldn't want to see them fired. I am unemployed right now and I realize how tough it is out there.

but here is the good news...When I called Verizon to make certain that my upgrade eligabity was reset, I explained to the rep what happened. The Verizon rep was very forthcoming and told me that Verizon has not deleted the Nexus from their info guide but only hidden it, she says the release date is there and it's the 15th. I asked how she knew this and she said she really wants the Nexus so she went digging and found it, of course we all know that could change, but I don't doubt the rep for 1 second (and I usually doubt everything) that the 15th is the target date.
i don't think we've seen anything more "official" than that.

I know the Razr is thinner, but this phone felt almost thinner due to the fact it wasn't so wide and long as the razr.

The 15th is confirmed just as the 9th was...by Verizon & retailers looking at their intranet and passing the info on. The only reason the 15th isn't set in stone is because Verizon hasn't sent out PR's verifying this yet. I hope they do Monday or Tuesday.

I will say if the Nexus doesn't come out on Thursday I will eat MY iPhone 4s.

I'm thinking of doing a huge run of nearby Verizon stores tonight to see if I can get at least one to sell me something.

Let's hope I can at least play with one :3

Anyways, what else did I miss besides the user who actually did end up successfully returning home with a Nexus, SamMax's almost-sale, and OTD's close call @ BB? :S

Meh... leave 'em alone. Let him/her play with the new toy and enjoy the weekend. One way or another we'll find something to drool over.
