    Right Behind You
    Ok all you little Nexaholics out there. I'm back.

    The rep had the phone and store manager was nice enough to play along and act like I was an off the clock employee to let me play with it for a minute or two. The rep was there to more or less go over the phone and he basically covered everything we've seen in all the YouTube videos out there.

    About the Nexus:

    It is fast. It may be bias on my part or it may just be ICS, but it seems to be faster and smoother than the Razr or the Rezound.

    The screen is absolutely gorgeous. I really don't have words to properly describe it. Take the rezound screen and make it better, that is all I can come up with.

    The size is like a pretty good combination of the Rezound and the Razr. It doesn't have the width of the Razr or the thickness of the Rezound though. The curve is very subtle and I almost forgot that it was really there.

    The phone really functioned flawlessly too. With LTE it was blazing fast to bring up the web and the market. I didn't see music in the market on the phone, btw.

    The rep demoed the camera and it really is just about instant. Tap the screen and you have a picture and the phone is ready to go again right away.

    He also showed us Face Unlock which was really cool, but I can't see using it all that often unless I'm just trying to show off the feature.

    Someone asked what the build was at it was 4.0.1 so I don't think this one has had the update that people were talking about.

    I asked the rep about a release date and he said that it was on Verizon, but he was hearing next week.

    That is all I've got. I only had the phone in my hands for a couple of minutes and had to pass it to someone else. I almost cried.

    The one last thing I will say, I don't see anyone being disappointed with it. The wow factor is just too high.

    Think this might be old, in the last column they mention locations receiving the 4 ft signs for it.. we know they already did. I can't see them sending those out three or four weeks in advance for display.

    Plus, it disagrees with what your sister said. She wins. As does OTD with her post just above this ^.. no way they'd have a demo unit like that with release being almost three weeks out.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say those are dates for the new graphics/banners that they will have out. Notice all the iphone stuff on there that also says "launch date". This is a calendar for their in-store advertising.

    //still holding out for the 21st.

    Kellex is just stirring the pot with that post.

    At this point Hannette is a better source than he is.

    I think that I'll wait a few weeks after the GN comes out before I buy it. I'd rather all of the kinks get worked out, you know, software and hardware revisions and such.

    This also proves that there IS IN FACT, SGN stock in the states.

    Looks like I'll have a Rezound, at least to hold me over. Can't take this battery life anymore. Thanks Verizon.

    @OTD, now I just wish we could virtually touch hands. Then it would be like I touched it...the phone, that is.

    That is just such utter garbage. Total BS. Oh and expect him to say something snarky about Hanette when he mentions her.

    Everyone keeps quoting Han's post about his sister's text, but her text never comes through lol... I'm scared to go looking for it because then I will get buried under another five pages...

    Anyone care to clarify? Please? :D
