    Why would they let a question like this through?

    Edit: Seeing the response it was obviously a softball so they could talk about the double data promo they're running right now.

    Nothing on the racks, but I didn't engage the reps at all, so they may have some in the back room.

    Because when they reveal that there's no price difference between 3G and 4G, Verizon seem like saints, that's why. And they can promote the double data offer.

    Ugh, slow day, and I'm sooooo bored.

    It's a softball promo question. Argh.

    I guess this is a "Jay Leno" interview.

    I lol'd out loud at this. Probably because I feel the same.

    although the Apple Cider that one of the companies put out is delicious


    I think most of us do which is why we'll suffer through 'amazing' a billion times and Rob's non 4g typing speeds.

    Depends on the company's focus I think. Right out of college while waiting for my job to start up, I worked the Christmas season for a catalog company as an order taker at a 'cattle-center'. We were instructed to take customer requests for items not in the current catalogs seriously and to pass them up the chain of command. Often, these requests were for items in old catalogs we didn't have in stock any more, but they'd typically see if they could get some in or if there were any hanging out at a retail location we could ship to the customer.

    But Verizon may not care so much about what its customers want, unfortunately seems to be the way a lot of companies are these days.

    I'm not watching the chat, nor do I care to but I can't crap on the RAZR beyond the silly spelling of its name.

    I think it's an excellent looking phone, better than the GNex and I really like that they've tried to protect it and make it a bit water resistant. As a smoker, I often use my phone outside so that would be a boon. Even if Kevlar is gimmicky, I imagine it feels better than the plastic we're going to get.

    If it was another Nexus device, I think I'd probably end up with one instead. Not thrilled with a non-removable battery but that's a wash with no SD card. My DX is a freaking tank, the RAZR seems to be of the same lineage.

    All that aside, the RAZR is bloated and coated and I just want the gooey centre (used the British non-US spelling to give it a little class). Bring on the GNex!

    Haha, they just commented on the softball claims, now they're asking about the non-removable battery. That's up a couple of notches ;)

    Edit: I'm going to stop trying, Hans is a ninja master :p

    Comment From Joe
    Re: Battery. What do you guys suggest if the phone freezes and the battery is not removable?

    That was my question! DOH! I just said a lot more so they didnt pick it :(

    Answer:
    Mike: If the device were to freeze, you can hold the power button and volume down for 10 seconds and the device will soft reset.

    Why would anyone expect this chat to be "hard hitting" or adversarial? This is, in essance, a big advertisement for Verizon and the RAZR. If people would see it for what it is, then they wouldn't be disappointed. I'm not knocking it, but when has anyone ever seen something like this, that asked the tough questions, or gave really specific honest answers. Not going to happen. A question about the SGN will get through and the answer will be to the effect of "it's coming, and we'll announce it before the end of the year"

    I don't think an SGN Q will get through, this is dedicated to the RAZR.

    Now a question that might get answered is "Why should we choose the RAZR over some of the other upcoming offerings that VZW has announced"

    edit: I went ahead and asked this Q

    Isn't the power button + volume rocker how some phones go into hboot? Or am I imagining that? (Believe me, I could be - I've only done it once)
