    Can't keep up, is there actually an AF SGN meetup? I'll have to drop by if that's the case - been F5'in here since the D-Inc days.

    I'm in for buying Steven a beer!

    The only thing truly keeping me from going to play with the Vigor is that I know I'll like it because I know I like Sense AND I want Beam. I won't have anyone to beam with, but I want it.

    maybe i'll go get a razr, return it, get the htc, return it..get the wonderous sexus.

    i may be reaching here, but i'm pretty sure the majority of us are phone nerds. with that being typed..i don't believe the average user knows of even the 14 day return policy, let alone the extension that's just been posted.

    so here's what i'm thinking & hoping. they release our nex in the next few days as we're "expecting" if there are any bugs..(i would not be surprised if there are any bugs being a new os) then you can return your phone...NOW-the masses of non phone nerds will encounter these bugs and say this phone is wack, i'm returning it for the htc/razr. w/e

    but us..we'll know the updates will roll and we will hang on to it. Yes, yes?

    You might want to test T-Mobile first in your area. It was atrocious in the western states and in the midwest for me and worth no discount.

    I bet HTC is more than happy that number stands out sitting next to the Razr and soon the Nexus.

    I'm content to wait as long as it takes. The closer to January it gets, the more likely I can sweet talk a csr into letting me do an early upgrade on my wife's line. My wife told me she wants the best so I told her we'll be picking up a couple of GN phones. :)

    For all those frustrated, remember what OTD's "contact" was saying earlier. Verizon did not loose a bet and therefore must carry the GNexus, Unfortunately just because VZW is being tight lipped about the release does not mean that anything has changed, P3 has been known to have bogus information, so no need to suddenly believe everything we are aware of has changed. Steven is checking his sources... In the Meantime... Stay the Course! :D

    That there are.. and in DC too. Over on Centreville myself. Other than the politicians, the whole NoVa area is pretty nice to live in I think.

    Man, it just seems to me like people are tired of no news and are throwing crap into the air. How many times now have we gotten info taking it away from the 17th, only for it to go back. Stay strong, the first two phones are out, all that's left is the GNex. Tomorrow. I got a good feeling about this.

    Not knocking blogs, but the whole SGN release date issue, just like the Thunderbolt, Incredible, etc really show that blogs know little more than a date range and just want to one up each other so they can be first to post that they have an exclusive when it comes to new info. I don't like AC because Phil pretends more than others that he's a "serious journalist" despite rumor mongering with the best of them.

    Something tells me it won't be too long before you find someone to beam with (no, not innuendo..). I think there are going to be a relative slew of phones with the NFC chip in the near future.

    Or just make new friends among the others picking up their Sexy Nexies the same day you get yours.

    Very legit. If you account for historical data and business 101.

    I'm anticipating a December release.

    Especially if the chip will be in batteries and SD cards. All it will take is native software support in ICS, which I believe we already have. How awesome would it be for phones which didn't ship with it to get it after the fact from 3rd party.

    Yep, just like Intel's Pentium 4 that was higher frequency and appealed to uninformed end users when the Athlon was wiping the floor with it.

    I think the IPC of the Nexus' OMAP processor is better than the Snapdragon. I guess once the Nexus comes out we will see some benchmarks :) Here's to hoping we see those in the next week or so ;)
