    I know the US is behind the rest of the world in terms of mobile tech. I was simply referring to the number of Verizon US users versus UK users.

    If you read my whole post, you would have seen that the reason I fault Google and Samsung is because they haven't made the prior Nexus phones commercial successes in the past, they've allowed them to be things for primarily geeks and enthusiasts with low sales numbers. This has given them little to no leverage with the carriers, so unlike Apple they can't launch the phone when they want, they have to wait for the carriers to determine that.

    I wont argue with ya. Seems reasonable; most of us just don't want to rule out something sooner.

    Sorry, but you sound like my wife.

    "Our team is down by 8 points and there is only three minutes left in the game. Let's go home. I'm cold!"

    Granted, the chances are slim, but it's a lot more fun hoping it will. :)

    I did read the whole thing, and I still think that you can't blame this on Google or Samsung. Okay, so the Nexus line hasn't been a success in the past.

    BUT, everything that a Nexus "was" has completely been thrown out the window. This Nexus was not designed for a dev niche community. Just look at it.

    * Biggest screen on any phone in the U.S.
    * 1 of only 2 HD, 720p resolution screens
    * Top of the line of available CPU/GPU
    * 4G LTE speeds
    * "Vanilla" Android is NOT "vanilla" anymore. It is elegant and beautiful
    * It's effectively a superior SGSII (best selling phone in the world).

    Could Verizon, even with all its stupidity, look at this device and say "Eh, it's just for devs. Let's put it at the bottom of the pile," ???

    That's absurd.

    I strongly suspect that this will be the best selling phone in the world until quad-cores come out. This will be the SGSII a few times over. BMX is tweeting that UK people are going crazy over it (he's over there as part of his Google job right now).

    Verizon is capable of such boneheaded stupidity, as we have seen over and over. I think Verizon is the only one at fault here.

    It means Security-Off.

    Essentially, it unlocks the NAND flash memory to allow write access by disabling the signature verification protocol stored in the phone's radio.

    It is (for the most part) unique to HTC devices, and it must be bypassed in order to obtain root.


    Edit: I just noticed Stigy was quicker to the draw than I. I don't want to steal his thunder.

    The Rezound is rooted, but it only lasts until the phone is rebooted. They are still trying to unlock the bootloader and I think S-off is part of that process.

    So for now, there's essentially no root b/c even freezing apps when you have root doesn't work b/c they revert back to unfrozen after a reboot.

    Anyone know if Vegas has taken up odds on this dang thing landing in VZW consumers hands by black Friday?... my heart wants to say yes it will. But all my instincts say I could make good money money betting post BF.
