Whether or not the Nexus officially launches tomorrow, I have a feeling some of us will become owners of a new Galaxy Nexus. Others will be left empty-handed.

The ratio between proud owners and empty-handeders remains to be seen.

I'm guessing most of the Android blogs and such were embarrassed by their "Confirmed" posts and such, they really are going to lose credibility it they are throwing every date at the wall and hope it sticks, so they are probably going to avoid that until something more official.

It's getting frustrating, I just don't see it launching tomorrow. Even if it was a soft launch I'd think most places would be more in the loop and there would be at least an announcement. I better prepare myself mentally to getting a Rezound.

Starting to have a serious hot flashes. For me it is always about the "thrill of the hunt." After I get the kill i am often disappointed. The real fear/panic is I have no clue where I will turn my attention to next to waste all of my free time. Suggestions?

If they do that again, I feel a few more best buy's and Resellers will be willing to break date after this latest fiasco.

With as much misinformation that is going around (and has been), I can't believe the phone is released until I have it in my hands. I'm still appreciative of all the work people are going through to get inside info but confusion appears to be everywhere from the top to bottom of VZW.
Which VZ corporate? I'm north of Philly too.

Lex, what store did you go to? I've called just about every Verizon, Radio Shack, and Best Buy in Rhode Island. All claim to be ignorant of a launch date and deny carrying any in stock.

I am starting to wonder if VZW is gonna wait till 5PM to release this PR too, you know, to make sure its all done symmetrically. (And by symmetrically, I mean a complete cluster no matter which way you look )

THAT is why everyone is still geared up. Our reps tell us it is 100% coming out tomorrow. Just because your poopy reps in CNY don't tell you jack, doesn't make it ok to come reign on our parade!!

Worst case scenario:

Some stores show green light to sell tomorrow, most likely retailers. If it comes down to it, I will be hawking every store in a 10 mile radius in hopes of getting one as confusion over release date rears its ugly head again. I have the morning off...dusting off my tactical gear as we speak for special ops. Let's hope I don't need it.

Might be ninja'd on this, but this video is exactly why I have held out for the Gnex. Give me pure ICS with updates directly from Google. ICS looks sweet untouched, why mess such a good thing up with a crappy UI overlay? Waiting to see what comes out at CES won't help either. I don't care if the next gen of phones are quad-core and all the hardware specs blow the Gnex out of the water. If my daily experience with the phone looks like that video, give me my "outdated spec'd" Gnex and I'll wait for the next Nexus phone in a year or two.

It's a csr. No, I wouldn't believe them. We've said numerous times they don't know anymore than us. Until Verizon says it, its not official

So I called my new Verizon rep friend, and he says he's not 100% sure, because they haven't received official word yet.

I think that he's lying because he doesn't want to get into trouble.

But then again, who the frak knows.

So while I'm not 100% sold on tomorrow, this is nice. Last week around this time (the day before supposed launch) we had a ton of bad news already that it was going to be delayed. This week its still either launch or cluelessness. Everyone preaching no release this week consider that for a moment.

Just spoke with my wife and as of right now she is still bringing home a GN tonight and will activate it tomorrow morning when she gets to work. Her store has not received any word regarding this phone's release date being pushed back again.

I can't help but notice that it seems most of the corporate stores are "unwilling" to divulge information, while the retail stores are gladly expressing any information they have...

Bottom line...the corporate stores are on a tighter leash.

If this goes on sale tomorrow, would online sales be available at midnight tonight???

i've called several corporate stores in the Phx area, and i get the same response: "We haven't received any word of an official release date, so we can't tell you when it will be available."

however, on my last call, i spoke to someone who was very nice, and who is in charge of merchandising in this particular store. she lamented how VZW has buggered this release, and how VZW has been clamping down on the info that they can give out. she then went on to say:

it is a VERY NICE phone! i can also say that, as soon as we get official word from VZW to sell it, we will have enough phones to last for a few days. however, until we get official word from VZW, we aren't authorized to sell it. in fact, if we try to ring it up, it gives a sale price of $10,000, or some other ridiculous figure. that's how VZW prevents us from selling it.

with the iPhone, we just got text messages at 7:00 a.m., telling us, "Congratulations! You are authorized to begin sale of the iPhone." so, we may not know until minutes before it goes on sale.
given the PR statement from VZW to Android & Me, this tells me that VZW is keeping us and its corporate stores equally in the dark. it could be tomorrow, it could be Friday, it could be......who knows?! i still plan on being at the doors at 9:00 tomorrow. luckily, if i get turned away, i'm still only 10 mins from work...

Don't give VZ any more money than you have to. I have always used squaretrade for insurance on my electronics and they are top notch. Cheaper than going through VZ/Asurion as well.
Excellent. I have a squaretrade for my tv, but never have made a claim. I noticed Steven used it for his notebook, sounded like it went well. It's nice to hear from others who have used them before.

Tx!

I have figured out when the Galaxy Nexus will be available.

Remember when people were claiming it was going to come out on 12/12 at 12:12, they were on the right track but Verizon is going after something different then day of the week and month of the year since they've done that before. The clue is that the only real press release they done since the announcement that has really mentioned the Galaxy Nexus has been the one talking about tomorrow, 12/15, being the LTE anniversary. So the the Galaxy Nexus should release on 12/15 at 12:15.
.... or not, I may just be grasping at straws but the good news is that 4G is officially launching in my area on 12/15 so I have that to look forward to once I can replace my OG Droid.

I decided last week my business for my Nexus is going to Radio Shack because the manager there has been honest with me from day 1 and even put my name on the one in stock and let me unbox it last week. All the VZW stores in the area have lied through their teeth claiming they don't know, don't have stock, yada yada...even one being just plain rude saying "I have no information for you".

I decided to give my local VZW one last chance to come clean and earn the opportunity to get the sale for my wife's upgrade. They still claim they know nothing. They're done. If this phone comes out tomorrow, they will never get a dime of my money again.
