    well 'end of feb' isn't exactly spring. So I think he's just guessing. But I do hope Google starts selling them in stores. Android will take off even more once that happens.

    I learned a long time ago that it's best to never believe anything you hear from a Verizon store employee.

    But I agree that it would be nice! If nothing else, it would definitely give the N1 a lot more exposure, which would be a good thing.

    I hope they where not selling you a phone and said the N1 would be out at the end of the month, so you can return it and get that, where they?

    I'll be a bit irritated if it does because I switched to t-mobile so I could get my N1. I didn't want to wait another 4 months for Verizon to get their act together, but if it comes out this soon I could have waited. Oh well, move forward...

    But to echo what everyone else is saying I think this would be great for the platform. The N1 hasn't don't as hot compared to other phones because of the lack of advertising and hands on shopping experience. This will bring great public exposure to the phone.

    No I am up for a new phone next week and I'm just trying to figure out what to get. He actually told me to wait vs. getting the droid or palm pre plus. I love the google services so I'll have to wait for the N1 whether it's the end of this month or not.

    I just wanted to see what other people have heard from the Verizon people.

    its really not a matter of vzw getting its act together. since their logo already appears big as day on Google's nexus one site, its a matter of HTC getting its manufacturing ducks in a row.

    A store employee isn't privy to that kind of information. The worst place for information is in a cell phone store or a cust service rep on a phone

    Don't waste your time they will either tell you what you want want to hear or give you gross misinformation.

    The only time anyone will know when the Nexus One is released to a particular carrier is when Google announces it.....period!

    With all of the advertising hyping the Droid before it was released...I'd think we'd start seeing advertising for the N1 very, very soon if this were true.

    Some random rep in a VZW store isn't going to have that sort of super secret information. I think we're looking at more of a March-April window.

    The Verizon version is CDMA and (most?) European networks use GSM, so you can't really conclude anything from this.

    Yeah, I would guess it'll be a while before the N1 comes to VZW ... they'll probably wait at least a few weeks after the upcoming Moto Devour release.

    Haven't seen anything lately about the Vodaphone version of the N1, but since it's a different technology from the VZW one I suspect its on an independent release track from the VZW phone.

    since it would be a direct competitor w logos devour its unlikely it would be in stores anytime close to that dropping. realistically I don't see it in stores at all though. it goes against the very idea of what Google is trying to do w the n1.

    Sorry, I was referring to Verizon's horrible selection of phones the past few years. I have been watching the rumor mill since July to see which Android phone they would eventually carry and they disappointed me with the Droid. Don't get me wrong, it's a fine phone, but I wanted something less boxy and without a slider. Verizon has a "Don't ask because we ain't telling" attitude so I couldn't wait another 4 months to see what they'd do.

    At least tease me!! Theres more to live than a fantastic network!!

    Sadly if it was that close there would be videos and etc of the CDMA version online already as demo units would be out and about. I suspect it will be a bit longer, but hopefully March/April timeframe.

    And considering the lack of advertising on the Nexus One for T-Mobile... I say it's still up in the air--but I think more end of March instead of February.

    I just got the Eris on 2/4 and am considering returning it and waiting for the N1, so, when i called verizon cust service to make sure i would still have an upgrade availability on my line if i returned the Eris (Which i would) and asked if she had any info on the release date of the Nexus One.

    She said it should be out by the end of March, but, again, it's a cust service rep and as always, take it with a grain of salt.

    I do agree with the other posters though, we should be seeing SOME form of advertisement or talk about demo phones or SOME website talking about the release date...they're note THAT secretive about it. Think about every other phone that Verizon puts out, we at least hear release date leaks, website placeholders, pricing rumors, SOMETHING leading up the actual release date, and we got NOTHIN.

    Just Spring '10. Garbage. Just gimme a taste!
