So the camera and video aren't great and now the speakerphone might not be that great?

I went from having to get the Nexus to I might have to make a choice between it and the Rezound. I use the speaker all the time and I don't want another phone with a crappy camera. Sigh....

I just came from a VZW corporate store close to my work. I went there twice last week as well. Last week they were disavowing all knowledge, like I was asking about nuclear launch codes or something. Today, totally different reception.

First, the nice manager lady recognized me as the stalker from last week. This time she smiled at me when I asked about "any intel on the Nexus" and she offered (I didn't have to ask) if I wanted to see one. Imagine my answer.

So, she disappears in the back for a few minutes and comes out with the elusive white box. She pulls off the sleeve and when trying to open the two halves of the box, it pops open suddenly and next thing you know, we're both staring at a virgin Nexus on the floor between our feet. Good thing it was carpet.

I held out my hand, not certain of what to expect. All I can say is... WOW!!! (Worth Our Wait!!!) OK, so the battery was not in it, but even so, it was truly sweet. Next, I asked the most loaded question of all (she's heard it from me plenty before); when can I buy it? I offered that I had heard Thursday was the day. She asked what was the date Thursday? I said "the 15th". She said "then I guess I'll see you on Thursday". I take that as confirmation or as close as I'll get out of these guys.

So, I reserved a place in line right when they open on Thursday. Leaving nothing to chance, I also have several dates reserved into 2012, which is a year in which either the world will end, or Verizon might actually release this phone. I suppose one is about as likely as the other.

So EVERYBODY is saying the 15th now, am I correct? Do we have a single source saying otherwise?

Do I take all of their words for it along with Hanette/Miss Piggy/Cheetara's word for it and take Thursday morning off (presentation to give in afternoon so have to work)... Hmm?

I think this is happening for sure now. I've just got two more calls from Verizon stores now.....all trying to setup appts for the 15th. So, why no announcement from Verizon though? This whole launch is a huge joke really.....

Trust me, the camera is fine. It may not be as amazing as the SGSII or the I4S (possibly even the Rezound, but I wasn't that impressed with the Rezound's) but it is FAR better than any phone released this year besides those two (possibly 3). It blows away all of the Motorolas and definitely any last gen HTC I've used.

Rep said the speakerphone wasn't terrible, but the RAZR was definitely louder. FWIW, the RAZR is incredibly loud IMO.

Well IF it finally comes out Thursday, I'm still planning on ordering online if it's available at midnight. Hopefully I can do overnight shipping and receiving Friday morning (when I'm off work ).

Charging question :

Why does my phone act wonky when it is on the charger? The Phandroid app zooms in at a single touch anywhere on the screen. SwiftKey doesn't want to type at all. And notifications don't show up?? It's a Verizon charger.

my wife was just at a vzw store. Dood said it will be out on the 15th, delayed since the processor is burning out the battery. Glad I wasn't taking a drink when she told me that.

It would be nice if Steven's source was able to confirm the 15th, too.

FWIW (almost nothing) the one person I talked to yesterday that seemed to have any idea what was going on (at a VZW corporate store) said that it would be available "later this week", and "online and in stores on the same day"

Yes, I just called a local store. No updates and the person seemed irritated by me asking.
Today I called a store... they wouldn't even play ball when I brought up the Nexus. No, "it's coming soon" or "call back on ______"... but then I called *611, and got a pretty cool guy on the phone. I was panicking due to a rumor that the phone being on the iconic list would prevent me from upgrading to it, and I started out by saying "I know you can't talk about the Nexus, won't even acknowledge that it exists... but I just need to know about" blah blah blah. It seemed to throw him off his "scripted response" and he started talking to me like I was his friend. He told me that he's just as much in the dark as we are and that he hasn't had an hour go by without 12 people calling in asking about the Nexus. He said that all they were told was that the 9th is no longer the date, and not to sell the phone until the 15th no matter what.

It was nice to not feel like I was being lied to for the first time by a VZW employee. I know a lot of people are skeptical as to believe the 15th is real or not, but after today I'm starting to believe it. That doesn't mean that won't postpone again, but at least as of now, it's nice to have a date. Hell, it was nice to have the 9th last week. Take it with a grain of salt, but we're getting close!!!

OG Inc is incredibly finicky when on a charger not exactly specified at the right mA. Are you using the "green" charger from Verizon? It causes all kinds of touchscreen issues.

She put me on mute for a minute as she looked up the promotion. She then found it and notated my account that I was approved for it (only can be applied at purchase). I inquired how the store rep would see the discount and she said the store sales person would have to check the notes on the account since they have access to the same system/notes she was composing.

I did the above yesterday, and redid it again today to verify it was noted. Worked first time both calls.


P.S. It apparently expires on 12/31.
Dude I called and said exactly what you suggested. The lady noted it on my account and said I would get the promotion applied when I went to the store!!!

Thank you so much. That made my day I love AF!
Gah, I wasn't so lucky. Apparently to be eligible for the promotion you had to be eligible for an upgrade between October and December of '11. I've had my upgrade ready since October of 2010. Oh well, I'll still try with the DL flyer.

Hmm my store is apparently still employing the "we know nothing" approach. Just called and the guy gave me the normal "we don't know when it will be out and don't have any in stock" answers. Annoying.

Question. If a Verizon CSR has applied a $50 discount to the notes on your account, can the discount be used at a Verizon "Premium Retailer" store or only at Verizon Corporate Stores?

Thanks!

There were rumors that they couldn't get them stable consistently at 1.5 ghz, which is why its clocked at 1.2 to begin with.

I can't find any solid proof one way or the other. Seems to be articles taking both sides. Either it being under clocked for power savings, or under clocked for stability reasons.

Speaking of equipment guide. I saw spec sheet a while back that showed that the GNEX had FM radio capabilities as well. Has anyone seen that also - or can someone with the GSM version confirm that?

Yup. I am. I use it as a supplement cause I have the external charger too and the one I had charging wasn't quite done. That'll teach me to forget the extended battery at home

I see that now. It must have been location based though because I live on the border of Monmouth and Ocean, but I work in Mercer and didn't get it. Odd.

Quoting myself to note an addendum: The very nice CSR I spoke to just now was specifically from the promotions department. She said that VZW typically runs training for any new promotions about a day before they're due to take effect. She suggested I call back the day before whenever the rumors speculate that the Nexus is supposed to release (she conceded that the system still does not have a definite date listed, but that Internet rumors are often accurate) and see if any new promotions involving the Nexus have been introduced.

Just an FYI for everyone.
