Everybody giving up??? I was hoping to surprize everyone tomorrow!! Can you imagine waking up and needing a Nexus fix and loading up AF to see that not only the BB ad was released, but also that we broke 50k!!!!!

First, she immediately knew what I was talking about and sounded excited. I said I realize you can't say anything since its unannounced but its possible you could launch on Monday. She said we often have phones at launch. I said, so you could have it in the back now. She said that was a possibility, then started backtracking as another rep came over and he was looking not too happy...she said of course she couldn't say anything about the release because it was unannounced...I said thanks and proceded to the register to buy my game and left...Did she slip up..possibly! Anyway make of it what you will.
I know, I know, grain of salt and all..
But those reps LOOKED like they knew something they couldn't say

Me, I'll be exploring all the great apps that are simply non-existent in my BlackBerry 5.0 world. The only "for sure" I'm bringing over are Pandora and Aces Solitaire.

Gotta decide if I'm going to stick with Tether, or check out some of these other tethering apps that I've seen recommended here, or actually pay Verizon's hot spot fee (don't want them to cancel my unlimited data).

Also looking forward to playing with the beam function, since my wife will be getting a Nexus, too.

Here is something I've been chewing on for a while. Anyone else get really excited about the NFC possibilities that this could really bring mainstream?

You got me with that one. I didn't remember your post, so clicked back to see it was 100 pages ago on the 19th.

Pretty sure if any front-like rep knew anything solid, we would have a leak with a good photo to back it up. *sigh*

Lol, while amusing I wouldn't do that. First it'd take you a year, second some people seem to get weird where "thanks" are concerned...

As far as the BB ad goes, I'd bet real money its a screw up at BB.

I love the fact that we're all so excited that we're forgoing sleep to see this milestone. If any mod is looking over this and frowning upon something that is going on, I would as that you look at the circumstances around us staying up. We're all amped about the ad coming out and the possibility of the wait being over tomorrow. We're living out what I believe this forum is about, getting really excited over something we're all passionate about. Hope that works for anyone reading this tomorrow

It's going to come down to wider adoption. Maybe Google has the chops to pull this off. I can already walk in to any Peet's around here and they've got Google Wallet stickers on their doors, and NFC-enabled readers at their registers.

But I look back 6 years to a previous job where we were specing out a new parking control system, and I was pushing for RFID credit card readers (PayPass I think they're calling it now?). I thought it was going to be the "new thing." Our consultant said No, so we didn't go with it, and look where we are today -- practically no adoption of this standard in the US.

As long as they're "real" posts and not just padded posts. They won't care.

I'm on mobile so I don't get a post count :,(

True, but if you look overseas especially in asian markets, phone payment has blown up. It is true that implementation is easier in a smaller market, but as evidenced by this thread, Americans also love their tech. We'll get there and I think we people really see how awesome this stuff is, adoption will move more quickly. I'd say from here forward, android phones released are going to be trending inclusion of NFC. That combined with the fruit company including it at some point and NFC will be the hot new thing fairly quickly.

It is a pretty long video, but the interesting thing is that it shows adobe flash support towards the end. So it looks like flash is here for ICS and the Nexus now.
Ok, so I cached this whole video up at 720p (which is not small feat with this slug of a network we have here at work), and I'm about half way through. By far THE BEST unboxing video I've watched yet -- or else I'm just in the right mood.

But the most remarkable portion so far is at around the 15 minute mark, where the tester begins web browsing and shows some good video of really small text, which is crystal clear and oh-so-readable.

Most of the display tests I've watched so far concentrate on video playback, but readable small text is the real test, and the Nexus screen seems to pass with flying colors.

What's everyone's favorite feature on the Nexus? I'm torn between ICS and that display.

I'd say there's a big difference between farmed thanks and actually meaning thanks.

Yeah it was surely the scripting that got their attention (although it was amusing). IDK, I'm too tired to play forum cop and nobody asked me to do that anyway.

Yes. Initially Mods were impressed at his devotion. Things only went downhill for him once he admitted scripting was being used. I think we're in the clear and at the very least, mods will see our intent and just ask us to change something. We're not trying to break any rules. We're legitimately thanking each other for staying up and keeping each other company while sleep eludes us. IMO anyways

Easily, for me, ICS.
i've been dying for a new phone with the OG DROID.. and being able to replace it with a new phone experience would be incredible.
anything 2.whatever all looks the same to me.
I'm writing this on a honeycomb tablet.. So getting an Android phone with an entirely new user experience is the biggest feature for me.

Screen and NFC for me. Keep trying to expand on my NFC hopes and dreams but keep getting sidetracked by all the comments flying. Lol I love that fact that we are all on here at 5:30 in the morning (if you're in EST like me) and enjoying the fact that other people are crazy (according to my girlfriend every time I get on here) like me!

Thanksgiving reminded me to give thanks. That's my excuse at least.

ICS and the display surely top any list, but what'll be most exciting is the developer attention this hotrod phone will get. Even with hardware that's similar to a handful of other phones out right now, Nexus will get kewl customizations first.

This is so true. I'd love to link you to an article I read about credit card security in Europe vs. the US, but I'd never find it (probably in the NY Times archive, $$) but essentially US banks are willing to maintain our less secure mag stripe system due to convenience and relatively small losses. European banks are much more interested in preventing fraudulent use, and are pushing these NFC/RFID measures. Some travelers from the US with mag-stripe only credit cards were SOL at many self-service venues and even some retailers, because they were either not equipped or unwilling to take payment via this old tech.
