    You also have issues if you like using car and home docks as well with cases. I also prefer "naked" phones

    I don't think Verizon would push the Galaxy Nexus back even MORE for the Droid 4. They know that would really piss off a lot of their customers. I know you're all about to say "Verizon has already pissed off a lot of their customers" but they can't possibly think it's ok to push it back even more...

    I'll take that bet. What's the wager?

    Thanks nj02vette... I am up to date on the info we have but until VZW graces us with a confirmation I take all the info we have as assumptions. (don't mean to be disrespectful... just my take until we have official confirmation from big red).

    Yeah, we were discussing that a day or two ago. That would be infuriating, but not surprising. :(

    I think he's talking about confirmed pictures of the LTE Nexus. In all the reviews and media pics, very few (if any) have been of the actual Verizon device. Most of it's been GSM version.

    But there doesn't seem to be any problem getting pics of the Droid phones.

    I'd prefer to think it'll get pushed forward, but yeah I would put a 99.9% guarantee that it won't launch on the same day.

    Seriously, they were planning on releasing it November 3. It's been pushed back a freaking month.

    I think we're WAY past the point of "I don't think Verizon would be that stupid. . ."

    They are.

    No disrespect taken. I understand everyone's frustrations.

    But almost all the specs were listed in the Verizon announcement. The only thing missing was memory size and battery. I think most of us can be confident that the Google page fills in the few missing links, and of course that's why a lot of people freaked out when the memory was changed to 16GB only. But it's back to 32GB now, so all is right with the world.

    Wait a second, I just remembered this picture:
    [​IMG]
    Looks like the Galaxy Nexus portfolio starts on 11/28 (Cyber Monday). Does this mean advertising or selling? Because Cyber Monday is actually looking pretty good for some sort of official GNex news after all :O

    P.S. this also explains the onslaught of Rezound commercials... ;)

    Makes sense because the GSM version is the only one released. Naturally there would be more pictures.

    I don't have all the answers, but Google/Verizon seem to be playing thier cards close to thier vest. There is an official picture on the Google website.

    Also the "Motorola portfolio" suggests the droid 4 as well in a way. I'm really thinking we'll at least get a date on monday...

    OK,
    So the terms are if the Droid 4 gets released on Dec 8th, and the GNex hasn't been released on or before that date.

    Deal. :D

    It may be a month old but it seems like everything is set and ready for them to announce something on Monday, and it seems to have been correct so far (Rezound and Razr being pushed through Black Friday... esp. those Rezound ads), but who knows.

    So people have seen this, and haven't gone back into thier posts to modify. That includes the quoted message too. I'm only trying to help kill this, because the mods won't be as forgiving. :(

    Been playing The Old Republic beta for the last two days (pretty good from what I've seen)

    Can I get a brief recap of what's gone on in the pages and pages I missed? Please?

    thanks in advance!
