    My concern would be the Evil Empire revoking our unlimited data because we dared to question their superior intellect and rational for withholding the best android phone ever made from the masses

    Well, I have an interesting story. Tonight I went into the Best Buy after watching the game to finally pick up Uncharted 3. Well, on a whim, I decided to check in at the mobile section...So I mentioned to the girl that I heard a strong rumor that the Gnex would be released on Mon. First, she immediately knew what I was talking about and sounded excited. I said I realize you can't say anything since its unannounced but its possible you could launch on Monday. She said we often have phones at launch. I said, so you could have it in the back now. She said that was a possibility, then started backtracking as another rep came over and he was looking not too happy...she said of course she couldn't say anything about the release because it was unannounced...I said thanks and proceded to the register to buy my game and left...Did she slip up..possibly! Anyway make of it what you will.

    The fact that I am reading all of these posts, even the unintended ones, to the tune of Hotel California tells me it's time to go to bed.

    Plus I'm a Senior now. Guess it's actually time for some warm milk and nightly news.

    Yeah, we pretty much just want some communication.

    Canadian carriers are starting to give pre-order dates, etc. Why can't Verizon have the courtesy, since they know there is a large, vocal group of us waiting, to give us a date...even for a pre-order?

    On a side not just to share how stupid Verizon csrs are. I talked to one tonight on the phone regarding my wife's bionic and the dipshit told me it wasn't under warranty but I could use my upgrade to get another phone since we were having problems. I corrected him once and he was like sorry but it's not under warranty at that point I asked for a supervisor. The next person resolved my issue and is sending a new bionic to me for the bug ridden pile of poo bionic.

    Or even just level with us. Be straight with the delay, if they can that is. If they were to admit it is marketing strategy, and that they are ready and sitting in a warehouse, yikes.

    I used to go to MLGs back in 04, 05, 06, 07, and 08... those were the days. Amazing to see how big its gotten. I still have some friends that are Halo pros. Believe it or not Koush, the developer of ClockworkMod used to be an MLG pro.. his name? StK Clockwork. I went to a Halo 50k3 aka MLG Atlanta in 2004 and watched him play. Small world.
