Went out to buy ingredients for cookie baking tonight, and stopped into two Verizon places. One store, and one at BJ's. The first place, the store, the guys kind of looked at me when I asked and then he got all shifty and was like... we don't have those in stock... I don't know when they will be out. Like he couldn't even look it me. It was funny.

At BJ's, the guys were really nice. They talked to me for a few minutes about the phone - they didn't know when it came out, but they heard the same rumors that we all have heard. They took out the demo (which came in an ice cream sandwich shaped box) and let me hold it. It wasn't on though . But it was still really pretty and light, and I really really really want one.

Right this second I have two upgrades available, so I'm actually looking forward to only having the Nexus for a short time. But if I didn't have two, I'd definitely be holding off if it were a Jan release.

I highly doubt the servers in charge of the LTE version's updates are online yet.

FWIW, he had to order his through Verizon and said they will not give out phones to reps that haven't launched or are about to in the very near future.

I'm going to lie in bed with the Xoom and follow your shenanigans for the rest of the night, and wait for Han's wife to post. Maybe I'll chime in, but I'm downright exhausted. Have a good night, fellow humans.

So last week I called off my quest for a Nexus. However, the $100 promotion may have made me change my mind.

So while I was on the phone with a very helpful CSR (April) regarding an unrelated issue, I asked her about the 3G to 4G promotional mailer that my friend received and asked her if I was eligible. Within a few minutes she said "Yes, by the looks of it you are eligible as long as you have an upgrade on the account. And you do... Is there any device you might be interested in?"

I replied. "Well, I was hoping to wait for the Galaxy Nexus..."

She laughed and said "Yeah you're actually the second person in a row that I've talked to about that phone. It seems like everyone is waiting for that one! We don't even know when it will come out! I guess we will know when you know..."

I then asked if the $100 promotion will show up on my account when I upgrade and she said that she will note what we talked about so that all the info will show up. She explained it to me that I will have to mail in my 3G phone when I upgrade and once Verizon receives it they will mail me a $100 debit card.

So, I have finals on Thursday, next Monday and next Tuesday, meaning that I won't get hands on my baby until Tuesday afternoon. Sounds bad right? Well to top it off, until then, I have to use a Samsung Rogue whose "p", "b", and "e" keys do not work along with an unresponsive top-left quadrant of the touch screen. You think you have it bad?? Almost there...stay strong...

Verizon has a vested interest in selling as many Razrs as possible this holiday season. It's likely an easier sell to most folks than a Google phone. I would imagine that some would be put off by a Google phone (they don't know Android, Google, etc.). Most just want a phone that's cool looking, has the features they want and is easy to use.

Verizon has a limited marketing budget. Even co-op dollars from the manufacturers only go so far. I wouldn't be surprised if the phone comes out Thursday to limited fanfare. The hope may be that word of mouth may quickly build, in addition to an increased ad push in January. Maybe they hope to get expiring new year contracts and the money kids received as gifts over the holidays...

I disagree with only us know about it. My neighbor does battery spill containment for Verizon and has an in with their higher ups. He was sent to a specific guy at our local store and specifically had to identify himself. This was yesterday he went in and he was told 50 people just yesterday came in that day alone so far asking for this phone. Now I don't live in a very technical area. Actually I can see corn and cows from my front door so I seriously doubt its a bunch of us going in asking about this phone. BTW, my neighbor does know tech either and he wouldn't even be asking if it wasn't for me telling him to get this phone.

Because the first person who sent the first message (the originator, let's call them) included your phone number in the list of people who it got sent to. Everyone who had that first message sent to them gets to see everyone else who it was sent to.

Think of it like an e-mail message. In to "To:" field, if you listed multiple e-mail addresses, everyone who you e-mailed will be able to see everyone else's e-mail address, because it is listed for everyone to see. Same concept with the iPhone and MMS messages.

At BJ's, the guys were really nice. They talked to me for a few minutes about the phone - they didn't know when it came out, but they heard the same rumors that we all have heard. They took out the demo (which came in an ice cream sandwich shaped box) and let me hold it. It wasn't on though . But it was still really pretty and light, and I really really really want one.
How thoughtful of you, your making the entire GN thread cookies??

Clearly someone is upset. There's a dude on twitter that keeps tweeting this:

@Verizonwireless #whereisnexus #whereisnexus #whereisnexus #whereisnexus #whereisnexus #whereisnexus #whereisnexus #whereisnexus 42

At the moment he's on 42 haha. This is similar to the razr contest they did

Han asked for ideas for her own username... so apparently she's gonna log in and read us our rights or something for taking up too much of his time...

Maybe she's waiting to try and hit post 83,000?

If the release is Thursday and the nexus is to receive an OTA within a couple hours of activation then I expected to hear from those lucky ones who purchased the nexus early saying they received the update maybe tomorrow. That would lock it as being a sure thing for me.
