    Doesn't advertising usually not line up with the actual launch of the phone? As in they'll release the phone then do the after-launch advertising... not try to get people to commit to buying the phone before it comes out. Meaning it will definitely launch this week, according to the w/o 11/21 document, the leaked roadmap, and other sources :D

    I wonder if this is a hint or a slap in the face to some of us. Or nothing at all. Posted on Twitter.

    They have to think about it strategically; it may make sense to us to just put it out there, and customers would make their own choice, but there's a lot more factors that go into a decision like that. Plus, I have a feeling that they don't think this mega-phone will appeal to that many average customers, even though ICS is supposed to...

    Sounds like a slap in the face way of saying they're support team is available on Sunday.

    Nothing at all. Just stating the VZW Support Twitter business hours. They've already gout our hopes up once with the "See you tomorrow" tweet.

    Just VZWSupport being VZWSupport. Basically, don't bother paying attention to their tweets because it's just their hours of operation. lol

    I did go overboard to suggest he would mod for personal reasons, i.e. the ban hammer.

    Why don't they do an web only kind of like how i think the n1 was with tmobile to kind of gauge peoples interests? It just seems quite odd to me to pay for exclusivity for the gn and not even push it for people. It seems more like they wanted exclusivity just so other carriers wouldnt be able to have it. They could care less how the sales are.

    Read this on Android Central.. makes sense too "all locations on December 8th" - it lines up with the Verizon spouse about that not being corporate store leak. The google contest ends tomorrow, it's our day guys. If not tomorrow.. sometime this week. It won't be December.

    Sounds less like anything directed at those waiting for the Nexus and more like every other one of their ridiculous "announcements" about shutting down for the day or opening up for the day.

    Not sure how to interpret this tweet by BMX yesterday:confused:

    "As for the storage question.. would vzw release a cheaper less mem model and still charge the same amount? Does that answer your question?"

    I was popping in and out last night while watching a movie by the fire w/ the family. Someone mentioned how sad it would be that while waiting for the GSN they missed out on the double data promo. I hadn't thought of that myself. I have my whole family over on Verizon right now and I am the only hold out...still on ATT so I figured I would just call Verizon and explain my plight.

    The CSR was fantastic and completely understood, noted in my account we talked about it and if in fact that was to happen they could go back and see the notes and do some type of price correction for me. During the conversation though she kept assuring me it was very unlikely it would happen becuase the GNX was going to be out soon (and although soon is relative you could tell she knew something) but she had no idea when the promo would end. Could be tomorrow, could be next month.

    So if your situation is similar and you have the same concern give them a call they were great and very happy to assist me.

    Also, someone posted earlier that the document stating 12/8 wasn't an official corporate store document and only applied to authorized retailers/agents. Therefore we could see corporate store exclusivity at launch (higher priority), and then shipments trickle out to the other stores.

    Yup... that was my initial reaction.:eek:

    He also tweeted:

    "Wish at times my bosses acted like Jobs.."

    I would say he is typically in favor of the V-Machine so I would say it means to expect 32gb.. I mean it's wishful thinking though..

    I see why he is friends with P3 though, just give a straight answer. Quit with these dam riddles..

    side note, love the music -____-

    I don't get why people are interpreting this as meaning 16 GB. He's saying "it would be the dumbest business move in history to charge $299 for 16 GB when the other 32 GB phones are the same price", so therefore they wouldn't do that >_>

    It was that very post that mentioned that I believe. The poster said her spouse who worked at verizon said the document didn't appear like an official verizon corporate document.

    edit: God I hate using "said" more than once in a sentence. Stupid.

    The combination of BMX's tone towards VZW lately and the Google site being changed to only showing 16gb for the LTE model is why people are interpreting it this way... at least it is why I am.

    Really hope I am wrong.

    And when has VZW made any smart moves with the Gnex? LOL:rolleyes:
