    Honeycomb is exclusively for tablets, correct? I have never owned a tablet, nor do I intend to. I'm still puttering along on my OG Droid, like several others on this forum. Your post comes off as quite condescending, and it's not particularly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Sadly, my work firewall has any and all video blocked, so I haven't been able to watch the video (or any videos from other reviews), but thanks very much for your help.

    You know where I am ;) I wouldn't count on seeing it though, I knew the person that let me see it (didn't even know they worked there) and I got the impression that it was something I shouldn't be looking at. LOL its was handed to me like we were doing a drug deal :D

    Guys.
    Guys.
    Long time lurker coming out of hiding to give you some juicy insider info on the release date:

    My third cousin twice removed is a janitor at the secret underground Verizon headquarters. (The above groud coroprate structure is basically a puppet organization, which explains a lot) He over heard some very high up people talking about the Galaxy Nexus. As many of have guessed, Android 4.0 is actually future technology, developed in the year 2074 by genetically engineered computer scientists bred to create phone OSes for the purposes of global domination. The plan was to transport the phone back in time and sell them now for enormous profit. However, due to fluctuations in the space-time continuum, they have not been able to hold the portal open in a stable fashion. This is why there is so much back and forth about the release date. In fact there is a good chance it will collapse altogether. My cousin says the best bet is to plan for a firm release in 63 years, but depending on quantum fluctuations, we may get it as early as 1969 to coincide with the moon landing.

    Truth.

    No need to thank me, your adoration is reward enough! :)

    I just wanted to thank everyone in here for all the help. If it wasn't for finding this thread, I would not be switching to Verizon. So I guess Verizon should be thanking you guys too. I could not believe how fast the LTE was when I went to the store last night. My Nexus One was bad, but I never imagined the internet was this much faster. I brought up with their phones in 3 to 4 seconds what at the same time it took 90 to 120 sec on my Tmobile N1. I know the speeds are better for Tmo in better coverage areas, but it's nothing like the LTE....it was awesome. I mean I'm gonna pay for the service but I would much rather pay a little more for a service that actually has some value where I live as opposed to service that is cheaper but has no value. It's gonna be fun im my household, I'm getting the Nexus, and the wife is getting the 4S...I'll have the best of both worlds under my roof, the ease and fun of apple to the power and freedom of ICS. I haven't been this excited in a LOOOOOOOOONNNNNGGGGGG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks again guys....:D

    Holy jeez.

    Went to take my girlfriend to the dentist this morning to get wisdom teeth removed and I can barely keep up with the thread.

    Some say he is a Nexaholic, all we know is he's called The Stig.

    You know OTD, there is one small loophole in your statement. Nothing says you can't do any of that stuff AFTER you have gotten the information ;)

    Tired of being broke and stuck in an unhappy marriage, a young husband decided to solve both problems by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife and arranging to have her killed.


    A "friend of a friend" put him in touch with a nefarious underworld figure, who went by the name of "Artie." Artie explained to the husband that his going price for snuffing out a spouse was $5,000. The husband said he was willing to pay that amount, but that he wouldn't have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's insurance money.


    Artie insisted on being paid in part up front. The man opened up his wallet and displayed the single dollar bill that rested inside. Artie sighed, rolled his eyes, and reluctantly agreed to accept the dollar as down payment for the dirty deed.


    A few days later, Artie followed the man's wife to the local Safeway grocery store. There, he surprised her in the produce department and proceeded to strangle her with his gloved hands. As the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last breath and slumped to the floor, the manager of the produce department stumbled unexpectedly onto the scene. Unwilling to leave any witnesses behind, Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce manager as well.


    Unknown to Artie, the entire proceeding were captured by hidden cameras and observed by the store's security guard, who immediately called the police. Artie was caught and arrested before he could leave the store.
    Under intense questioning at the police station, Artie revealed the sordid plan, including his financial arrangements with the hapless husband.


    And that is why, the next day in the newspaper, the headline declared: "Artie chokes two for a dollar at Safeway."

    Was poop on the floor in there? Because I think everyone should go to their respective stores and threaten to poop on the floor. No one likes it when you poop on the floor.


    Then they will be hauling those boxes out of the back just to stop you from pooping on the floor.........

    Long time lurker, first time poster...I have been reading this forum for forever now and it has really been addicting! Keep up the good work everyone! My story is pretty lame and provides no new information at all but i felt it was worth sharing...I just stopped by a local verizon store and the rep I talked to apparently has never heard of the Galaxy Nexus, but tried to talk to me like he had...he started talking about the specs: "Oh it has a 4.3 inch amoled screen, 1.5GHZ, 8 MP camera, kinda like the Droid Charge but better..." haha oh and he said it wouldn't be out until Jan...Xmas time at the earliest. That's when i said "oh ok, thanks!" and left...haha WOW! Anyways, I am super stoked! I know way too much about this phone now bc of yall! Thanks btw! And this will be my first android phone ever, mainly because I have been sporting the Samsung Flipshot for about 5 years now and have been eligible for an upgrade for 3 years now! Don't ask, bc I don't know why? But, nonetheless, here's to hoping for a Nov. 21st release! That would be sweet!!!
