    Just a guess, but the Androids could represent the 6 inhabited continents and the dots could be about cities or countries. They add up to 44. Not sure how many countries Android is in. The dots could also represent carriers too I guess, but none of them have on 7 for Verizon.


    EDIT: I just noticed the twitter link and that a bunch of people already submitted that. I though I was being all sorts of clever, dang it. :(

    So my friend that works at ATT knows some people that work over at Verizon across the street. He said that he talked to one of the guys who works inventory, and said that the Galaxy Nexus wasn't in the inventory list, and when they show up in the inventory, it is usually around a month when they hit shelves. I am not sure if this has been talked about or if anyone else knows people who work inventory, but I refuse to believe him...

    That could possibly be the norm, but there are always exceptions to every rule.

    So, I did a little research on the previous two nexus challenges and it seems that they love to involve the URLs...

    So with that, here are my theories so far:

    1. The androids stand for "Google" and you can use that somehow to determine a crypto or cipher.

    2. Each droid is a part of a latitude/longitude coordinate somehow based on the possible compass rose on its belly and that coords have 6 characters.

    3. it's a cipher with the dots representing letters that can be determined via the URL (01sdfpogiue).

    4. or, I got nothin.

    Makes sense, since it's for a Galaxy.

    That's interesting, actually. Can you point me to an example? Could make sense with the galaxy name, of course.

    Maybe the compass roses point to coordinates as seen from a location using the Google star maps app?

    Does it fit any known FTP syntax?

    8.62.88.12 is a valid US IP address...

    Went to Verizon today to find out some info and get my younger son a basic phone.I asked the salesman about the G Nex...He said "We dont even have those in stock yet".He then told me how dismal the Razr phone sales are and laughed about opening up later.I also picked up a Razr and it was oddly warm as compared to other phones that were on next to it.Only warm on the screen not the back.

    21st sounds good to me. Overnight it and get it the 22nd. Have 23 - 27 off from classes so I have plenty of time to play with it.

    I don't think there going to get any in stock soon. Im really starting to believe its going to be web only to start... that way they can just steer everyone that comes in the stores to the Razr or Rezound.

    I would use Chrome to tick
    as Online only looks like the pick

    I'm going to hit Costco, as they usually do a decent accessories package included for what you pay VZW for just the phone.. that being said, if it is web only to start, cyber-shopping AWAY!!!

    Stopped by a Verizon authorized retail store a little while ago, and they didn't even have an activated Razr in the store - just the demo with the sticker screen. And it wasn't even OUT, the sales guy had to go looking for it. I told him nevermind, if it's not activated, it's pretty useless, and besides, I was waiting for the Galaxy Nexus. He had a puzzled look on his face for a fraction of a second and then smiled and said he didn't know when that one was coming out, but that they don't usually know until a couple of days before, sometimes not until the day OF. Take it FWIW. He did confirm they have not gotten any accessories yet.

    If it's online only, why would stores get accessories already?

    I have to admit that I find it funny that it was easier to buy good tickets to see Roger Waters perform The Wall in May '12 than it is to get a phone company to take my $$$$ (of which they will get 0 until this phone is released).

    I am slowly losing hope again in the Nexus being released this coming week....such an emotional roller coaster here.

    However seems that the RAZR folks are having a lot of battery issues. Good thing I abstained from getting it!
