    Awesome point as long as it is done in a classy way without any vulgar comments.

    what about the deal with sammy? they are still obligated to release that puppy and sell as many phones as possible. moto, htc, sammy... it really doesn't matter to vzw as long as you upgrade and ink that contract.

    I'm with you on this, i nicely posted the following to their facebook page:

    "So Verizon, I've known you for quite a while, and that's all great. I understand you want to take it slow, but can you please hurry up and give me some Nexus release date info!? Please, don't hold out on me! :)"

    okay, the people who are about to have a mental breakdown or panic attack from this phone need to relax.

    its only a matter of time and i'm not jumping ship for a phone that i don't really want

    It's been a busy weekend between painting my son's room and college visits yesterday and today (yesterday Wm. Paterson Univ and Rutgers today)

    Then I get a call from my daughter, who goes to Univ of Kentucky, that she's in the hospital, with a stomach and respiratory infection. *sigh* They released her, thinking that the two courses of antibiotics gave her a stomach infection. *sigh*.

    Been busy at work.

    Oh yeah, having trouble with DX. They're shipping me out a refurb. If I get the Nexus, the refurb will be worth more?

    I'm tired.

    Oh yeah, PM's to sources sent. I haven't heard anything.

    Your humbled servant,

    Steven

    It is only a matter of time but some of us are impatient. I am personally the most impatient person I have ever known. And we have been waiting for a long time.

    Some of us are on phones that are not working properly and / or ages old and causing us problems to use on a daily basis.

    That's true but perhaps Samsung came to an agreement or also feels it would be better for their sales if they gave the Rezound and Razr a little cushion between their releases.

    This is where it gets a bit convoluted since we don't know who wears the pants in the relationship and all that ;) ..

    Ok so this post is actually coming from a Droid Razr.

    First impression is that the phone is very awkward in my hands and even on 4g the browser doesn't seem as fast as it should. I do like some of the things that Moto has done with it, but overall I can say that this one is not for me. It just feels too much like a Bionic on a diet. It is faster than many other phones, but I'm just not getting a wow factor with this.

    BTW, this phone is not even warm to the touch.

    I may need to leave work and go have a margarita. This stress is killing me. I hate to even say this, but my feeling is a first week of December launch is looking more and more likely.

    I....don't...want...the...Rezound. Hooooold oooooooon just a little longer.

    I am starting to talk to myself. I have to go home now :eek::eek::eek:
