    I think that the GNEX was supposed to be released earlier too. But wouldn't the RAZR have been DOA if that happened?

    I'm in the same boat and was initially waiting for the GNEX for months coming from Sprint, but purchased the RAZR last week with the intention of taking it back for the GNEX, but after using it for almost a week, I really love this phone! ICS will be coming in Jan 12, so that's a push. GNEX would have to have the best ever display / camera to make me even think of switching..but you never know until it gets released.

    Not criticizing you at all... but your situation is EXACTLY what VZW is delaying the GN launch for.

    Sounds about right. They just seem to be crazy unorganized and backwards about it.

    Yeah, the only indication that I've seen of any RAZR success has been Amazon. They're currently backordered for them right now.

    I think it's the same reason. But if that were true then they should initially release the GNex for $350 subsidized. That would allow them to continue to sell Razrs. Only thing I can think of is that Google would put the kibosh on that.

    BB, I think your avatars are starting to elicit similar reactions to people finding a special Google logo on their page every now and then. :)

    You might be right. The only problem is, Razr sales can hardly stall any more than they already are. People have been saying that they've sold way less than they expected. So really, if they're going to try to get rid of some inventory, we might have to wait a long, long time...

    I've owned the D1, D2, D2G and D3 and I don't think I will buy another Motorola phone. I use the camera alot and I have been horribly disasppointed with the camera on the D3. It's slow and does not focus well, etc. The Nexus will be my first Samsung smartphone. What did it for me was the camera on the Nexus. It looks f'ing awesome. I could not, would not, buy the RAZR. It's the Nexus for me. Good things come to those who wait!!

    1: I have a grandfathered unlimited plan I would rather not lose. And I have had problems with imported phones being kicked off att network. I am considering ordering it and switching back to t-mobile. Who I left att for when my imported phones stopped working..

    2: Yes google is still an American company I would have like to see the releases either be at the same time or here first. I know its an international business but some loyalty to its home country would be nice.

    3: I would have been fine with that or if they announced the phone when they did and gave 12/30/2011 as the release. Or if they are having teething problems with the phone just saying so and telling us that's why we don't have a firm date.

    I agree completely, and I blame Google for not making their prior Nexus launches bigger successes. It' ludicrous to me that the company that make the largest phone OS in the world can't say to a carrier "here's my phone, you will launch it on this date."

    I want Nexus launches to be like iphone launches, but I don't think that will ever happen.:mad:

    Another husband passing the old phone to "the wife". Doesn't she deserve a Nexus, too, for everything she does for you?

    Might be, but the volcano wasn't there when you were a kid, unless you're a teenager now.

    When I bought my Dinc, my wife and I both switched to Dinc's from the LG Dare. When I told her it was new phone time, she asked me why. She said there is nothing wrong with her Dinc. I will likely NOT upgrade her device at this time. In the spring or when her Dinc dies, I think she'll make the move to an iPhone.

    Alright, new optimistic path for today 17th the preorder begins, 21st shipped as well as available online. 28th available in stores.

    If i don't come up with new plans, I'm gonna cave. Not sure I can last, although I wonder if I can get a special deal if I trade my flip razr for the new razr. That should be some kinda discount, right?
