    Stigy, please tell me that you weren't one of the people here who thought the screen shot leaked the other day regarding 12/8 looked fake? This looks to be an exact match to that document. Perhaps not the SAME document, but the same document type.

    For those who DID judge the original image stating 12/8 bogus; what say you about these at this point? Just curious. I am no longer emotionally invested in this phone or what any "sources" have to say. I'll continue to hang around in here though, because I still plan to purchase this phone when it finally does become available. You guys are better than pay-per-view ;) And still the best location for gathering all pertinent information from across the web regarding this phone. Who needs Google search when you have this thread!

    So on happier topics, when we do get the GNex, what is the first thing you are going to do with it.

    Make a phone call, browse web, pictures, use it to iron your wrinkely shirt after waiting in front of the store for 3 days?

    i understand the rationale, and i also am one who doesn't believe that hating on VZW (even if deserved) is worthwhile. BUT, here is where i think your reasoning breaks down: EVERYONE who has reviewed this device has not given any indication of technical difficulties. by all accounts, and from all the info we have, this device is ready to go. rather, the info that is coming out (albeit from anonymous sources, but it's still info) is that the "technical issues" are being caused by VZW, itself!! in other words, the phone isn't coming out yet because VZW is trying to take a Nexus, and make it not-quite-a-Nexus by adding VZW apps - which, in turn, is causing "technical issues."

    by way of example, lets assume you have leased a car, and your lease is about to expire. the new model of your car has been released by the manufacturer in Europe and other countries, with no issues. but, here in the US, the exclusive dealer for your auto (which has formally announced that it will be selling the vehicle) wants to put on some after-market add-ons, to promote the dealership. these add-ons don't make the vehicle more efficient, run better, or worth more - in fact, most of the people waiting for the auto don't want the add-ons. however, these dealer add-ons are causing problems with the car, and the dealer is telling you that you will have to wait for a few more weeks while it sorts out these "technical issues."

    now, are you saying there's no reason whatsoever to be upset with that set of circumstances?!

    I think the correct answer here is that I would download the phandroid app right? :D

    If I use my upgrade on the free red Incredible 2 will they actually pay me money to take it?

    Since Android is known for being able to multitask I want to post on androidforums through the browser while downloading the phandroid app and then post through the app afterwards.

    I've been too busy at work and just caught up. I get news in at the weirdest times and have to edit out personal stuff from The Source, who is now my friend. My friend trusts me to edit out personal stuff.

    If I'm at work or if I'm driving I can't edit, but I feel you should know, especially since folks are always asking me for info both here and in inbox. So I tell you when info hits my inbox. I am self-employed and very, very busy. So I post what and when I can.

    I apologize for any hardship or inconvenience this causes.
