    I noticed for the first time that as the page loads it sends information to Google Analytics | Official Website. I also know that I'm disappointed, and to trust in my own HTML skill and not listen to people who say the page "is coded' to do something. Also I disbelieve all those who believe in the supremacy of EST.

    Well, VZW HQ is in Manhattan. Google, however, is on West Coast.

    They just might play it safe and post an update when the timer runs out in ALL timezones.

    Anyone notice that the timer was using your comp's clock for the countdown?? i.e. if you changed the time in windows you could get it to "timeout"...

    Likewise, you can change the time to a past date...refresh the page and it counts down again. This makes me think scorpio is right and maybe the announcement will come at midnight pacific..... all I know is I am going to be REALLY disappointed if I have to wait until 11:30a today (or later ?!?!?) for the "official announcement".....LAME!

    Still no announcement, although the timer has finished. Hopefully sometime this morning.

    Ha ha, even when Verizon has a countdown clock, they still make people wait an indefinite amount of time! Anyone seen the 6000-post thread for the Omnia II? In June, that phone was coming out SOON.

    I am just hoping for price and online orders today. If they take pre-orders in the store, I might go there depending on if the pricing is better online.
