Long time lurker, first time poster here. Joining in on all of the fun (I mean madness). I don't have much contribution, but I did hear that UK carriers are delaying shipment to 11/22. I know the majority of folks here are waiting for Verizon, so not sure of the implications. I myself am waiting on a GSM model.

Edit: Also saw that the Galaxy Nexus apparently showed up on Amazon but was removed.

I realized there a lot of people in this economy struggling and if I've got $35 to spare then might as well give it to a charity or someone I personally know that could use it. Something I plan on doing. As much as I desperately want an SGN to come out and rumors of a delayed release SUCKS!...but...maybe a few days of groceries could help, etc.... Just food for thought to those considering doing a "trial run" of another phone if you're sure to jump to the SGN eventually.

Just my thought. Hope to hear some awesome stuff today though!

and while I'm at it...I've only been on this forum since Octoberish..and I've loved it here. From Steven and all the mods to all you guys who post....its awesome stuff!
Thanks for this post... sometimes, even though most of us are "working" while we are actually F5ing on this forum all day, we lose sight of what is truly important. In a way, I can't believe I'm saying this, but it is "just a phone" after all.

This is a fantastic reminder for all of us. Thank you.

Welcome to the madness, OkPlaya!

It will be interesting to see what today brings! Good point about the EST Verizon stores... they're opening NOW so let's hope that they get some promo items (and maybe some PHONES) to tell us about!

Good morning, all. Assuming that no definitive release date info comes out by the time I leave the office this afternoon, I'm going to pick up a Rezound (sans accessories and ignoring the included earphones) after work. I'll, naturally, still be following the thread here while evaluating the Rezound and determining if it'll serve my needs or not. Hopefully I'll get to play with the Nexus in a store before I age too much. Either way, this is likely the last day I'll be on my Droid 2. (I'd still be on my OG Droid had Froyo not turned it into an underpowered mess. I didn't believe I should have to rom a phone just to make it work as advertised back then). The Rezound was rooted already, last I heard, but I'll hold off on doing that until I'm certain it won't be returned. I've missed LTE ever since returning my Bionic as it is. Don't let me down, Verizon! Bring on that properly-working Nexus asap!

Last I heard it was still on track for a 17th release.

Let me do some double checking.

Here is the link I read last night regarding a UK launch: Galaxy Nexus coming to UK on November 17 as promised - GSMArena.com news

Is there any news this morning that proves this isn't true?

The only consistent thing about verizon is their bills will go up.

They've been known to announce phones 2 weeks before up to release date and sometimes phones just pop up on their website. Even their email signup page isn't reliable. I still haven't heard anything about the Bionic being released from that thing.

Thanks, but do they usually make announcements around 10 AM EST? 1 PM? Etc... Or is it completely random?

Honestly I wonder if these delays are due to the fact that they never thought there would be this much interest in a Nexus device. Seems like all the blog have picked it up comparing it to the 4S and other top smartphones which in turn generated A LOT of interest for this device.

Good morning, Nexlings. I'm totally swamped today so you probably won't have to put up with me too much on this gorgeous, crisp Chicago day.

I'm not too hopeful of anything happening today anyway, but I'll check in periodically to see.

Have fun in the insane asylum, inmates!

Totally off topic but I just finished watching the segment about tampons soaked in vodka on The Colbert Report last night and literally LMAO. If anyone needs a good laugh to get them through these Nexus free times, I recommend they check it out.

Does anyone know if BB is carrying the ReZound? I figure I might check it out today.

I'm gunna +1 on this train.

I know we like to bash VZW for screwing this up, but what if all the twitter and fb and CSR chat warfare has actually tuned them into the fact that there are a crap-ton of people that want this? It's definitely possible that they want to make sure that it runs as smoothly as possible to avoid the many headaches we've had in the past.

If this was my first Nexus device to sell, and it generated this much interest, and I had the potential to make billions of dollars... I would want to make sure everything was ready to avoid any negative PR and damaged sales for another failed launch, etc etc. After all, it's only in our minds and this thread that this is considered a failed launch. VZW has really never promised anything aside from the phone. They certainly haven't been transparent or forthcoming with us, but they haven't set themselves up for failure either.

I don't know about any of you, but when I see a back-ordered phone... I get really aggravated and I'm compelled to look elsewhere. Plus that means you're not making the sale.

Well, someone I know asked to borrow my iPod yesterday so he could use the timer. I get it back and there's a huge crack down my screen now...

So now my wait is doubly urgent, because the Nexus will be replacing my phone and my iPod. The rezound is looking really good right now. Just gotta remind myself that Beats is a gimmick and I want vanilla ICS. :/

Does anyone know if BB is carrying the ReZound? I figure I might check it out today.
According to their website they aren't, but a phone call couldn't hurt.

BabyBlues is getting the GNexus... Just kidding...

The Best Buys around me are not currently carrying the Rezound, nor is it listed on their website....

Hope that helps...

Eesh that sucks. My wife completely destroyed the screen on my GT 10.1 after a mere 2 months of ownership while just sitting in bed. It royally sucked. Meanwhile our Droids have been tossed all over the place and their screens are scratch free. I'm only slightly concerned about the build on the GN

Thanks. Yeah our local one (a few blocks from my apartment) usually doesn't have too many phones on display and they're all dummy models anyway. I just need to pop in and pick up some new headphones so I figured I'd check it out.

That three UK tweet only says the people who preordered yesterday are having their order moved back...not everyone. most people should still be getting theirs on the 17th it sounds like.

I do a lot better with no Nexus news in the evenings when I'm home than I do at work. When I'm home I have my girlfriend to hang out with and watch tv/movies and I have MW3 and Skryim to play (and the Halo remake to coop through with my gf today)... Only 6 more hours of work until I can get a distraction from the phone I so desperately want. At this point I care more about when the release date actually is than getting the phone. :/

If I had a product which a group of people seemed to really want, I'd talk to them almost constantly to keep them interested and ensure they felt loved. If there were delays, I'd be as upfront as possible (up to the point of looking foolish) and make sure they didn't leap unto a competing product. Even if I didn't really give a rat's ass about those customers, I'd never let them know that.

I've found that communication is really key to making people feel as if they're a part of something. It's about building a community.

I don't do well anywhere. Lol. I constantly refresh at work and then when I'm not at work I have the app to keep up on our insane ride.
