    In looking at this from a sales standpoint, I think Verizon is playing with fire, if they elect to release it after Thursday.

    Look at the ad's you'll get in the Thursday paper, 2" of them.

    It seems like it'll be difficult for them to announce "new and improved", when every other store is doing the same.

    There is going to be a lot of sales background "noise" to compete with.

    Sure, the real Nexus nuts, will buy it asap, no matter, but your average joe, he's probably as clueless as some of the CSR's, various folks have talked with.

    I'm betting on a soft launch Monday with TV ad's running the same day.

    The gotta have it now crowd, are probably trawling UK websites, to find an overseas version, and import it in.

    That being said, I don't believe they'll benefit from LTE, as it will probably only work on the GSM side, if they drag one across the pond, to use in the states.

    Your mileage may vary.

    I just received my bill from VZW in the mail today.
    I sent it back with a note saying.
    "Payment will be delayed until sometime this year" :D

    Only gripe about phandroid app is I can't see thread count easier. Although it makes it easier to follow this thread. Here is hoping for my SGN next week!

    They have a tough call to make. Do we try to sell more RAZR's this week and risk losing customers/sales to other carriers? Or do we release the GN and lose RAZR sales?

    Honestly... I'd not want to be in that execs shoes.

    i don't know what's worse...

    ...the fact that i'm going to see twilight: breaking dawn in a couple of hours by myself or the fact that i'll probably annoy the heck out of other movie goers by refreshing this thread nonstop on this temporary rezound's huge screen.
