    Yeah I have my doubts, but I'm holding on to hope! :D

    Also, I am sure you all have probably already seen this, but there is an extended video of the 1080p from the Nexus that was displayed when ICS was announced.

    I got it, but you'd be surprised how many people would have read that seriously! :D :p

    I actually just chatted with my buddy who works at ATT and asked him if you guys get training and accessories, how long after that is usually the release of the phone? He said usually within a week, sometimes within days, and rarely beyond a week, but did say it has happened before. Sometimes 2 weeks. But from what other people are saying, I think I am back on board with the 17th.

    This sort of behavior is the number one reason I never actively join forums. I dont know why I decided to jump in here when I did. Sometimes its really a pain to read some of the crap that winds up on here... whether its modded out or not.

    I guess I finally pulled the trigger and joined because of the radically new OS we'll be seeing. I assume having easy access and communication with the AF community would aid in learning and maximizing ICS's potential.

    <<<< I just realized I'm a regular member now!!! :D

    Although I'm not quite sure if I should consider that a good or bad thing. It may just mean this forum has consumed too much of my life now lol

    It was... We appreciate your kind words. We work HARD to keep peace, to keep you guys informed and and to keep this place safe. Stuff like to today makes the job difficult and unpleasant for me, so I appreciate your guys' cooperation so we concentrate on the important stuff, which is getting the info out to you.

    Olosnah,
    I'm excited too and thanks for the information from your sister. I was just thinking / wondering, is her cell with verizon? If it is, maybe texting her for details might not be best. If she its higher up, she might be bring spied on. If she has verizon cell, maybe you could call her on a landline for details.

    I thought it was to buy music with limited record company backing?

    It has been rumored for some time that an announcement would be made soon between Google and one/some labels.

    All I know for sure is Google Music will sound Incredible on my new Galaxy Nexus. (See how I made this back on topic - talent!)

    Off Topic but I've decided there are way too many East Coasters on this forum. It's funny because it absolutely dies in here at the same time every day. Around 4pm (West Coast Time) while all the East Coast people are commuting home/eating dinner.

    I understand. And I don't fault you or those who opinions you share on that matter. But there is a line. And I believe its somewhere near this behavior-- Quite literally harassing VZW CS reps for no particular reason (though you will tell yourselves that you did so because you were hoping to gather unpublished information; even more respectable). And fighting about a joke that you didn't catch because you are so wrapped up in a superficial thing and were emotionally hurt when you found out it was an obvious joke.

    Its one thing to be excited-- we all are. Its another entirely to let something like this consume you. Sorry, just my two pennies.

    Looks like the release is around the 21st:

    The Nexus twitter just said that 10 chances to win over 10 days starting tomorrow.

    That doesn't mean it will end on the release day.

    Well, best to just mention at this point, around here, we attack issues and not each other and let's all be polite. ;)

    Mr. Politenessman says that so many problems can be solved with politeness - and we do not endorse harassing CSRs or anyone.

    OK, maybe the better response would have been: I joined this forum because it makes me feel normal.

    To demonstrate my ignorance for the evening, what is a soft launch? Does it mean the product is for sale with no fanfare or does it mean inventory is limited like a early production run?

    I heard the term in Ocean's Thirteen but want to understand it in this context.

    I know, and I hope I'm wrong... but the last Nexus release had the same give away and ended just before it became available.

    Probably reading too much in to this, but wouldn't this align with a 11/21 VZW release?

    EDIT: Disregard - another post beat me to it. My apologies.

    I agree that it doesn't mean that it has to end on launch day, but it seems pretty reasonable to me that the 21st is it.

    I registered just so I can say that the Galaxy Nexus will be my first smartphone besides my work blackberry.

    I have been using a moto KRZR for voice and text all this time. Everyday that passes with no announcement makes me sadder.

    Please Verizon, announce the DATE!!!
