    Based on how the original announcement transpired, most likely a well connected tech site like Phandroid, BGR, Droid-life, etc. will have it first. Verizon sent the release out to them a few minutes before posting it on their site.

    Hadn't read the thread since before Thanksgiving. After getting zero work done all morning, I'm officially giving up on trying to catch up. Last page here we come!

    I think he meant that the Nitro will basically be LG's version of the RezoundT, not that the RezoundT was made by LG ;)

    And the RezoundT doesn't have a Pentile matrix either, although LG's IPS displays ARE supposed to blow any other LCD panel out of the water. Let's just hope they do a little better on the software this time than they did on the G2x...

    LG Nitro HD is basically LG's Rezound. Spec is very similar to Rezound except bigger 1830mAh battery and no Sense in Nitro.

    I love how you both added the T. That misspelled best buy ad sure has been influential! I thought Rezound was a horrible enough name already...

    Yes. It will be a cold day in hell before I buy a CDMA phone. I travel.

    Verizon version is Dec 9th... I am assuming you purchased GSM version, which they do have in stock.

    Yeah, it was just hilarious that he misspelled it exactly the same way that leaked Best Buy ad did. :D

    and we wonder why Verizon doesn't make an official announcement, come clean and just say it's been delayed. I've been loyal to verizon since '96. they're not known for having good phones. they're known for having the best phone service.

    Yes. It is. And it's much later than most would have thought even verizon would hold out on us

    Congrats. Although, I hope you are aware that isn't the Verizon version.

    I thought so at first as well. However, 99% of the tweets and retweets say something to the effect of:

    @SamsungMobileUS I'd rather be reading a Galaxy Nexus release date from @VerizonWireless than waiting in line. #stopwaiting

    I understand where you are coming from. I guess I'm just not that desperate to upgrade from my Dinc. It also looks like you are OK with rooting so that will probably help you with future proofing any phone.

    The Rezound is really nice. If the Gnex wasn't coming to Verizon and there was no hope for any Nexus device in the foreseeable future I would probably just go with the latest and greatest Android device but a little grumpily. A few months back I actually considered going to fruit over all the Dinc updating issues but I only considered it for 0.68 seconds.

    This sums up my relationship with fruit :)

    Lieutenant Commander Data: And for a time, I was tempted by her offer.
    Captain Jean-Luc Picard: How long a time?
    Lieutenant Commander Data: 0.68 seconds sir. For an android, that is nearly an eternity.

    Which means you will be getting an email from them in late January telling you it is available for purchase at that rate.

    If the email she got has an origin date of 11/28/11, I think it's still very good news. This would mean verizon is still planning a 2011 release

    The real treat was that leaked BB correction sheet, where they fixed the manufacturer but STILL spelled the name of the phone wrong :D

    So when it slips into 2012, they don't have to change their message. :eek:
