    @Steven I think you forgot to remove our "convenient nexus countdown" :-/

    So that it's in the system under today's date, you'd likely have to return it for a refund, pay the restocking fee, and rebuy it all in one shot.

    I don't think you'll get a real ICS ROM with the locked bootloader on the X. :(

    I wish I could but I can't. I get off at 3:45. I will call then and post what he said to me when I get home tonight around 6:30 after basketball practice. I coach JV Basketball and have practice from 4:30-6:00 tonight. I MAY be able to call around 3:00, no promises. If I can call then I will post prior to leaving work today.

    Any suggestions as to what I should say?

    I plan on obviously asking for a release date but expect to get shot down. Let me know what else you want me to ask. We do, finally, have the ear of the office of the President (of Verizon Wireless).

    Just make sure you call him before HIS day is over. Hopefully he is still in the office when you do.

    see if you can find out when they plan to let us know anything, after you get a release date out of him. then we'll see if the 2 play off of each other and we'll know if he was being semi-honest and/or had any idea what he was talking about

    Interesting... so Apple made a phone call to the FCC to make it release earlier?

    Also, correct me if I'm wrong but VZW did not submit this phone to the FCC... Samsung did. Maybe this is Google (yesterday) and Samsung (today) telling VZW to release it already?

    Reviews (plural) or review (singular)? I don't see how anyone can have a true feel for battery life on Rezound yet. RAZR, yes. 10 hours with heavy use on 4G? Do you really believe that? I'm not being surly...just asking. If you've owned and used a LTE handset...and you very well may have...I'd be surprised if you put a lot of faith in that purported 10 hours with heavy use claim. Can you tell I'm skeptical? lol

    Just be polite. (I'm not saying you won't be but a friendly reminder)

    Just be very appreciative, but don't be shocked if you get a very nicely-worded canned answer. You may even let him know that you're well aware that Verizon doesn't go into detail about unannounced products (ala Apple), but maybe he could narrow down the release range if not an exact date. You could also offer him your soul in exchange, for which OTD would be happy to make you into a vampire, I'm sure. :)

    In all seriousness, thanks for doing this for the gang here.

    Not sure, but from the way the Exec sounded on the Fox interview, it sounds as if Verizon's driving this weasel and baboon show.

    i think we can throw this week out of the game, wouldnt stores both direct and indirect be getting shipments of them by now if they were going to be selling them in 2 days? if they dont have any on hand by friday, i would say monday is out as a possibility as well

    BGR Review "As far as the battery, standby mode has been excellent. With normal usage on and off throughout the day, the phone and its 1,620 mAh battery seemed to make it just fine as long as I remembered to recharge when I got home. Even when putting the phone under pressure with constant 4G LTE web browsing, email, video playback and continuous music in the background, the Rezound held up very well."

    I guess the 10 hours was my interpretation.

    In store sales probably, but they can be sitting in a warehouse somewhere for a soft (online) launch

    Unless they are doing a web only for starters - then the stores truly wouldn't know. Yes, I know there are accessories in the stores but stranger things have happened.

    Agreed. And even if everyone was told to be 100% hush-hush, I would have expected at least one leaked image of a shipment box if not the phone's box itself! Perhaps the web-only 21st, but I still am leaning towards mid-Dec now given the recent developments.

    IF the RAZR & ReZound sales are as bad as we think, and IF VZ is concerned about 4th quarter sales, they should launch this puppy sooner rather than later. Another possibility is they're concerned about quarter 1 sales and holding the G-Nex back for that, but I don't think Google will allow VZ to stall the American release that long. I bet we see it launch within 2 weeks.

    I thought someone found a way to root a GB X. And if you can root can't you ROM? I haven't done it before.

    Ugh, watching some No Reservations on Netflix and of course Bourdain had to throw out the word "nexus" and OF COURSE I throw my head to the screen in desperation...

    I must break my silence.

    I received a text from my sister. It reads as follows:

    I give up trying to figure anything out anymore.
