    Considering it's an independent store it's probably going to be the 21st, based on all of our previous sources from legit managers and knowledgeable reps. But who knows...

    Ahhh wait a minute. Am I seeing this right? The Nexus will sport a 5 megapixel camera? WTF? Almost everything on the market now has at least an 8 megapixel. Why so low? If anything I would have at least put in an 8 meg if not more to beef up the phone. Man this is a little disappointing.

    Same here. I walked right in and bought mine at Best Buy. Although they did only have 4. That was an odd release though, hopefully they have Nexi aplenty but I do kind of worry about it to be honest.

    For about the past hour I've been trying to think of excuses to tell my boss why I need to leave at 9:45 in the morning for an hour.

    Here's to hoping my commander will let me take an extremely early lunch!

    You need to realize how little the mp effect the quality of a picture ;)

    Dude, chill. Megapixels mean nothing, unless you blow your pictures up to ridiculous sizes. The camera on the Nexus has been touted as just as good as the iPhone 4S's.

    Already discussed a ton. It has zero shutter lag, so that was part of it. And.why do you need 8MP on a phone? 5 is plenty to print even 8x10, and the sensor quality is as important as raw MP.

    Wait to try it before you judge. From the looks of it it is a nice camera (for a phone) and it's very fast (more imortant to me). Also the whole megapixel debacle is just that. Mr Rockwell might be annoying, but I like his reads check it out here

    Megapixels have very little to do with actual camera quality. The Gnex's actual camera is, from what I've read, apparently very very good and works well in low light areas which is harder to do with higher megapixel cameras.

    Edit: Ninja'd by jbdan, with an article to boot..;)

    Doubtful but they might be able to pull some strings. I got them to do it for my OG if I remember correctly. Personally I just like the longer return period and their buy back program. Yes you do buy into it.but its based on their full retail (which is about $30 + higher) so you wind up getting more. My Gnex will be free by selling.back my charge and transferring an upgrade!

    EarlyMon, I'll let you handle this one ;)

    (long story short, megapixels have very little effect on the picture itself, only how big you can print the picture. It's a quite a bit more complicated than that really, but that's the general gist. Early can give you more deets if you want 'em, I'm sure :))

    What actually matters is the sensor. And the Galaxy Nexus has a very advanced sensor.

    *sigh*
    Not this again.
    Well I'll be nice and give you the explanation:
    Megapixels are only an indication of the physical size of a picture. an 8 MP picture printed out at a certain pixel density will be physically larger than a 5 MP picture printed out at the same pixel density. On a 720p, 4.65" screen it really shouldn't make a difference.
    And in fact, lower MP sensors have better low light sensitivity, shorter shutter speed, etc.
    So the 5 MP camera is actually a good thing.

    EDIT: TOTALLY ninja'd by my good friend TheRoosevelt ;)

    Oooohh nooooo. Not the megapixels question again. 8 < 5 (not when it comes to image quality anyway)
