    They gave us a little notice at the rollout. But I didn't see any advertising until it came out. It goes back to Verizon not wanting to trump existing phone sales unless it is their blockbuster phone release (for example, the RAZR).

    Imagine if the phone released on the 17th. None of this business would have happened.

    Gonna take a page from Han's book here and post this:

    Kellex also said he wasn't so sure about that. I think at most we'll get more leaks but I'm not holding my breath on an announcement. Perhaps later in the week.

    Okay, PRE-ORDER on the 29th is realistic, relative to a launch on the 8th. 10 days to go until zero hour :)

    To be honest, seeing/experiencing the behavior of some (and only some) of the mods is a large part of my transition from fairly active poster to lurker. On most forums, it's enough to just remember the Golden Rule. That rule isn't enough here, I guess. So I maintain my silence.

    Amazing that a mod on a power trip is going to cost us one of the better posters in this thread. Not hard to see which one....

    cya around Han, you'll be missed.

    I was thinking...

    How about a movie when this is all said and done? I'm sure Lifetime would give us the rights to use their channel. :)

    We have drama, anticipation, eventually a release... this is pure gold, Johnny!! Pure gold, I tell ya!

    I'm not new but I have to say I agree with what you've said. I thought maybe it was just me seeing a tighter fist on us and the language allowed but I'm glad it's not only me seeing it.

    Why is this such a big deal?!? He's on probation. It's a simple call to say we want to be more courteous. For all we know someone may have reported the post in question.

    The mods are volunteers and do the best they can. I'm sure the last thing they want to do is come off as power trip abusers.

    i'm just wondering what approach they will take. even if they don't announce a date at least let us pre-order
    i remember when i had the G1 i pre-ordered and it was a few weeks of a wait but at least u knew u had one coming and usually the day before store release i think i got mine 2 days before might be 1 not sure

    We will definitely miss you Han. You've been one of the most valuable posters. I always stopped to read whatever you said because i knew it would likely be important. Sorry to see you leave like this.
