    Hi! I have been lurking for a few days but thought I would finaly register. The Galaxy Nexus will be my first smart phone. I am excited to get one some day!
    Did anyone catch this post over on the RAZR forum on "A closer look at the Droid RAZR's screen"? FragDroidX says their Verizon rep stopped by their office yesterday and let them see a RAZR, Galaxy Nexus and a Rezound. He asked about the release date on the GNexus and got this answer:
    FragDroidX;
    "He said the release would be November 21st for online orders with in store release December 1st. He did point out that the release date has changed several times and could change again."
    What do you think?

    Wouldn't you like to know
    It's so rewarding to now see Nov. 17 in the 7-day forecast... This is finally really happening.

    Don't know who FDX is and don't really care now that we got three sources from our Mod Steven58 who are all saying the 17th. However, I would like to say WELCOME TO THE FORUM! Join in on the craziness that we are all accumulating while we wait for this legendary device!

    Thanks, everyone! I look forward to spending some time in these forums, especially once I have my phone. I don't want to miss out on any of the awsome functionality.

    I've been calling, e-mailing, and going to Verizon Store but they're very firm on their stance of not allowing me to upgrade any earlier. I have a Droid X with buttons that are wearing out and is becoming frustrating to use and I explained my situation to them but I still will have to pay the full retail price for a new phone if I wanted to upgrade. Unfortunately it doesn't look like I'll be getting a Galaxy Nexus. :( My upgrade date is in March 2012 since I bought a Droid X at launch.

    That's really interesting. I thought the SGS2 is actually just a tad wider than the GNex, and is not that much taller. I think personally the width is really what makes a phone more comfortable or uncomfortable.

    My neighbor just got an SGS2 so I've been playing with it for a week or so. The size of it doesn't really bother me, so I don't think I'll have any prob with the GNex.

    I did the same thing, got my X on launch day, but I am lucky that I am on a family plan with old people who don't want to change their phone, so I actually get 3 upgrades a year if I want. I wonder why they wont upgrade you...

    Keep in mind that the $111 price is most likely for brand new lines. I remember when Amazon was offering the big price breaks on the Bionic right after it released, the renewal price was more. About $50 more.

    Now if you could get it for $161, that's still a helluva deal, but there's no telling. Still wouldn't settle for the RAZR personally, but I sure hope some similar deals come out for the SGN on release day!

    Try using my 500mhz Hero for a few days telling me that the memory is full with almost nothing installed on it. It crashes whenever I'm in an app and the phone rings! Blah... can't stinkin' wait until next Friday!!!
