    Everybody relax. Scottg is just reporting what he is hearing, just like everyone else is - including Kellex, P3, and Phil. We won't know anything definitive until Verizon gives us a date. That doesn't mean that people can't tell us all what they are hearing. After all - that is why we are all here

    I think this phone is going way more mainstream that Verizon ever anticipated. They probably planned this phone to be their niche phone and that everybody would go for the Razr or maybe the Rezound. It doesn't seem to be working out that way just hearing about the poor sales and the reports of just average customers (read not crazy like us :D) going into stores and asking about the SGN. Plus this thing is all over the internet. Way more than previous Nexii. I never even knew the Nexus S was out there before this thread and I'm on the internet and tech sites all the time keeping up with work stuff.

    I really this this has caught Verizon off guard and the reason for their confusion about releasing. I also think there could be a supply problem brewing with Samsung as they may not have expected this much demand this fast.

    Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Does it matter which 2 of the 3 words they use?

    Does anyone know when the double data deal runs out? I didn't see it on the VZW site.

    I'm coming over from AT&T and leaving behind an unlimited plan (I should be OK, looking at past usage). I don't want to miss out on this deal, so, do I need to rent-a-razr?

    I guess it's best to wait until next week, if no news by Wednesday, maybe I should consider it???

    I have absolutely no problem with that, but if he's gonna call others out as fake and unreliable, then I have to make sure all the facts are laid out there.

    You'd have to think they do everything they can to release it by the end of the month. I'll be Google and Samsung will be pissed if Verizon makes them look like idiots by not releasing it in November like they said it would be during last month's event.

    Am I the only one now really concerned about the 16/32gb? Granted I would rather have a 32gb, but its by no means (to me) a deal breaker. Right now I use about 7gb on my phone and I have everything I want on there. Now with Google Music I can probably cut that in half.

    Except they did the review on a GSM version. They didn't have a Verizon version on hand and just went off of what Google had originally posted.

    I would have to disagree. This phone definitely seems like a premium, elite phone for them to carry. It's definitely nothing big that people would line up outside the average Verizon store for. In fact, I'll probably be the only one in my town buying one on the day it's released... I think Verizon realizes this and is putting it off compared to more recognizable and "high social status" phones such as the Droid RAZR (a combination of two of the most well-known Verizon brands EVER) and Rezound.

    If it suits you with 16GB that's cool, but if you wanna carry around music for offline play, and a couple movies, things are gonna get cramped fast. I would much rather have the 32 GB. I don't think it'd be a deal breaker if the 32gb wasn't offered, but for a non-expandable storage phone 16gb seems pretty skimpy.

    I honestly don't think the double data thing is going anywhere before Christmas. Verizon doesn't usually do things like this and then quit them after a week or three.

    Edit: I asked my sister who works at VZW (not in any special position there or anything) about this and she said not to worry about it. Verizon has done these "limited time" packages and then they've gone on for 6 months before, or they just never changed them. They want people on the 4G phones.

    My thoughts exactly. I didn't even fill up half of my Thunderbolt's 32 GB SD card and with Google Music the only thing I really need to worry about taking up space is apps... I could probably even go for an 8 GB model lol.

    Again, Verizon promised us the Nexus two years ago. Two years is toying with us. If they didn't have the best network in my areas, I would gladly leave.

    They have given us false info!

    I talked myself out of the better camera, then the sd card, then the release date push back....this is just starting to feel like a last straw situation for me

    Yeah, it does. Everywhere else Verizon talks about the phone they call it the Galaxy Nexus or Samsung Galaxy Nexus. A typo in one of the words, sure.. that might not mean anything. Leaving out part of the name of the phone this late in the game? That wouldn't get past the people who review those documents before they go out - especially when there is a competing phone called a Samsung Nexus S out there.

    Combine that with the other circumstances of the leaked picture and I'm calling shenanigans on it. Verizon may be the evil empire and may be stupid for the way they are marketing/holding this phone back compared to the Razr, but they don't often mess up message-wise internally from what I've seen - unless the wireless division is completely different from the landline/fios part of things.

    You must have a lot of music, and I can understand that. I am not as huge into music as a lot of people are. I listen when I can and at work (radio mostly), but I don't have a huge collection. Most of the time I like listening to Colin Cowherd on ESPN in the middle of the day, so that is 3 hours right there.

    I'd be buying a Rezound tonight if I knew for sure that only 16 was available.
