    ok overnighting matte "smoke" right now...I was actually too afraid to buy it ahead of time. I really wasn't sure this thing was coming at all until this morning! Plus I didn't want to jinx it ;)

    thanks for the advice!

    CRAP!!! Been so busy at work ( WHAT!?!?!? Work??!?!) that

    1) haven't been able to keep up with the Pre-release thread this am
    2) Now its closed... ..understand, but still bummed

    and most importantly...
    3) I haven't been able to play with Nexie!!!

    So who's already rooted? I'm new to that and a little nervous... I was thinking about just unlocking the bootloader for now so I can go ahead and start adding stuff to my phone.


    And yeah.. I need help with that. I have a PC here at work and a MAc at home. Which is easier...

    BB,

    I see that Steven credited me for creating your watery hole. I sent him a PM correcting that!
    Just FYI.

    All right guys, off to real life for a while.

    I'll be back later.

    Still not rooted, I'm a bit apprehensive about it. I thought it would be a 1-click root, but doesn't seem that way. I don't like the word ADB.

    TTYL!

    Here is a comment someone left in reply to me on a DL thread just now explaining how to unlock the bootloader on a Mac pretty clearly:
    Next up, rooting!

    Anybody having trouble getting a 4G signal I had one when I was first driving home from the store and haven't had it since.. Only like 2 blocks away too so I don't think it's the distance

    Yeah I'm hoping future updates address the signal strength for sure. I was easily getting LTE in my office with the rent-a-rezound and can't get it at all on this.

    I'm glad they had enough to go around at downtown xing. I was worried for the people in the back when a bunch showed up around 7:45. I think the yellow spot up front in that pic is probably me. I ended up being 5th a little before 7:30. The first two guys in line got there at 6:20! (think they overshot a bit with that one).

    I think I saw on here or on reddit that they were having some problems because so many people are activating this device lol

    Google just auto-downloaded all of my apps (which is cool) and I went in to do a little bit of cleanup and see a built in app called VZWAPNService. Any idea what this is?

    One strange thing I noticed on my new GNex (nice saying that) is that every time I download an app from the market it places the icon for the app onto the home screen. This was before I upgraded ICS so maybe its fixed now or, maybe there is a setting for that somewhere.
    I hope that the watering hole sees some action, although I am sure it will be no where as busy as the epic thread.
