    Sounds like an 11/21 release. Nexus challenges each day leading to the launch.

    Or would it launch on the start day wouldn't that make even more sense? Just throwing it out there. Maybe its wishful thinking.

    I know! Me too. But a 21st release is very likely. All other contest had chances to win a phone up until the day of release. Wouldn't make sense to release the phone before the 21st....oh well. IT'S STILL SOON! So excited. Good day for GN news!

    Verizon doesn't launch phones on Saturday and without a press release the day before.

    It is Samsung/Google's game, not VZW's. And it is "around the world"... the Euro release is on 11/17. I don't think that it means anything.

    The price is at $500 so it doesn't require a 1099 form. It has nothing to do with what it will retail for.

    Does anyone know how Verizon taxes a on-contract phone? Do they tax you for the full retail price or for the price of $299? (In California if that would make any difference).

    they only can tax you on what they sell it to you for, at least in my state. that would be like getting taxed full msrp on a new car but actually getting it $2500 less than msrp

    I'm on Sprint right now and going to switch to VZW with the Gnex. But Sprint, in CA, does charge tax on the full retail value of the phone.

    Yeah I'm hoping so. But when my mom got her iPhone it was 250? I also know some parts of the country have been trying to change it, taxing customers on the full msrp of cell phones, but didn't know if California was doing that yet. Thanks.
