    They aren't silk, but check out Sena. They make whisper thin leather pouches for phones. I use one for my Dinc and I plan getting one for my Nexus.

    I just think the Rezound is one of the ugliest (and fattest) phones I've ever seen otherwise I would seriously consider staying with HTC and grabbing that bad boy today.

    Not to mention it's going to be murder trying to get ICS roms on devices like the RAZR or HTC device because they're both locked down.

    If the GNex doesn't come out before the end of the year, I doubt any of us on Verizon will have a pure ICS experience until next year.

    Here's hoping the Windsock stays true to form.

    Word on the street?

    I just asked a guy on the street about a release date for the Nexus and he said:

    Which you will notice is exactly 17 words, so............


    Seriously though, word on the street has always been another way of saying rumor mill. If it really is delayed it is amazing that he is the only one to of heard about it. Either way, I'll be waiting.

    Correct.

    Source code is being released the 17th. Understanding it, modifying the kernel and drivers plus anything else you want to do to it to make it work with a particular handset - not an instantaneous process.

    The fastest that a phone has gone from source code release to the AOSP repository to a carrier update for a non-Nexus phone has been 6 weeks.

    Add in holidays and all the other variables - and expect to see independent devs upping their alpha releases without everything working pretty quickly.

    But everything working? One to three months after the 17th, typically.

    I say that there is NO reason to worry about this!!! If you guys remember, Panda was flaming people who "talk smack" about the windsock...I would imagine he was talking to people in this forum. So his revenge is to get everyone in here all fired up and stressed out over his tweet. He's screwing with you guys. Pay him no attention!!!

    There is a cutoff date in my mind. If this phone is not released by the end of this month, I'm seriously probably going to get another Droid battery because battery life is the only thing killing me right now with this phone, and just wait and see what comes next year. I've waited a month for this phone already since it's announced date and I can wait a little longer if it's going to be another 2+ weeks anyway. I've done the math and it's cheaper for us to be with AT&T because all of our friends and family are with AT&T...I might jump ship for the Galaxy SII just out of spite for Verizon mishandling the release of this phone so badly.

    There's a cutoff in my mind too - December 31st. While I hope like hell it's not that late the Verizon release said 'by the end of the year'. Yes, it would suck

    to wait that long but I wasn't this excited for my DInc and I want to wait it out.

    I DO I DO!!!

    I would buy the Rezound today if it wasn't for 1) Galaxy Nexus 2) the ridiculousness thickness of the phone, the reason I passed on the Thunderbolt.

    I am a huge HTC fan, love their Sense UI, but I need less in my pocket, not more. I love my Dinc, thin and powerful.

    Agreed about the Love Tunnel PM.

    If Windsock heard something about a date being moved back there might be internal information stating this. Let's see if they have any other information for us.

    Well they do have to get ads in for the newspaper for Black Friday in on November 21st. That only leaves a few hours to review copy and approve. I'm just saying... Coming soon!

    Nexus fever stricks again.

    I took a look at one today in the store and it was actually much more comfortable than the RAZR IMO. Yes it's thick, but not that thick.

    Mik Mik already unlocked the bootloader for the Rezound and if you don't like the community method, go to HTCdev.com for the magic beans soon enough.

    TeamAndIRC already has it rooted and RootWiki is already preparing to publish a ROM for it (download available).

    Getting things on an HTC -> not murder.

    Several code misdemeanors are usually committed in the course of getting things past the Verizon configurations, tho. ;)

    The next easiest thing to break into besides a Nexus is a Samsung, followed by an HTC (last two used to be switched, but still). Motorola I make no promises.

    Agreed but I would probably get the Razr over the Rezound due to its thinness.

    Cmon Nexus!

    Good news!

    Just called an official Verizon store, asked when they would have the nexus, and without hesitation he said "looks like the end of this week or early next week."

    That's the first confirmation I've actually heard from a Verizon store so I thought I'd share.

    Good point. This is definitely the first time Verizon has released 2 android flagships this close together.

    The Droid X was about a month or 2 after the Incredible.

    And while 2011 has been a disaster - they really made up for it at the end!

    I just tried getting the word on the street also. The guy honked his horn at me and told me to get out of the way. My mom always told me not to play in the streets so I am kind of new at it. :D

    Helped a Director at work get his Exchange account on his new Iphone. He looks so happy with his palms around it....Im jealous...

    I hope to be this happy some day :)


    Oh yeh, I am making everyone around me miserable too about this phone. So you know, the company i work for is dropping the corporate phone plan with t-mobile. Everyone who uses a corp phone will get a $50 credit on their check. Also, Verizon is giving us a nice discount off the monthly bill for everyone that signs up for them.

    The date they are dropping tmobile is Dec. 1st.

    Everyone knows I am waiting for this darn phone and really need it before the date.

    Looks like there may be a possibility of getting the razr until the gnex. :(
