Default Pre-Release - Relevant Info Thread

After many requests to stay on topic in the "Ofiicial" pre-release thread, I decided to create/update this thread as I see any rumors come in or relevant info come into the main thread.

I plan on posting anything I think is relevant which may include rumors.

Feel free to post any information you find as well.

If you do find this thread useful please consider contributing to this thread to help preserve the great environment that helps gather all this information so quickly.

Thanks.

Right now, the most probably date is Dec. 8th. This is coming from developers who may be privy to this information, but it's still all rumors at this point.

Hopefully this is helpful to you all, more signs pointing to either a 12/8, 12/11 or 12/12 release.

She seems to be distracted at the moment.

Work. Ugh.

The Regional VP announced in the meeting that the Nexus is coming on the 8th to VZW corporate stores and online. This matches with what P3 has been saying and what Verizon's own OMM marketing system has said for weeks now. The date is essentially set in stone at this point.

Another noteworthy piece: the regional VP said corporate is really excited about this phone. My partner told me he gets the feeling that corporate VZW expects it to be their first real successor to the OG Droid, and that it should share similar success.

I got a call on my cell phone tonight from said rep! And Launch Day is:

DECEMBER 8TH!



SO I am 99% convinced that - unless Verizon completely botches it - I have 6 days to go and I'll be holding my Beloved Nexus in my hands! WHOOT!

Dear Blogs: android 4.1 has nothing to do with the Verizon release schedule. most likely scenario is a release at 4.0.1 with an immediate update to 4.0.2. Plz stop sending bad information bases on your suppositions. Thx

  1. 32GB is the confirmed model, there are no plans for a 16GB model.
  2. 1850mah is the confirmed production battery capacity (some early development models originally came with 1750mah but were returned to factory).
  3. The current status of pricing is as previously set at $299 on-contract and ~$600 off-contract.
  4. Out of box devices will come in one of two scenarios that will depend on when and where the purchase order was made:
    • The device will come with 4.0.1 preinstalled and will prompt you for a 4.0.2 update upon activation.
    • The device will come with 4.0.2 at stock and will not prompt you for any further updates until 4.1 testing is concluded.
  5. 4.1 is currently in very limited testing at the moment (if you have this, you are most likely a tester or developer).
  6. Depending on the results of testing, 4.1 will be an update that is pushed publicly post-release or it may be held off for further fixes.

Unfortunatly, I don't have any data for you guys regarding which is the more likely OS version scenario but I can say that everyone will see version 4.0.2 upon release either at stock or with an update prompt.

I apologize again for the previous confusion and I will keep you guys posted as I receive more information and updates.

And an audio port! I might actually use my phone for music... have to look into those little features that made me keep my iPod around (gapless MP3 playback, soundcheck-like normalization, shuffle by artist) and see if progress has been made.

It has a hole for the camera to be usable! Combine that with that time-lapse video feature, and I can make a cute video of every road trip I take.
