    This is true assuming Verizon doesn't advertise/market. The RAZR is being heavily marketed by VZ. Millions of $$$ lost on poor sales is my guess...

    There is no delay. Hans sister said that a while back. The delay is actually a charade. Now that we are past that...

    I believe a lot of this is true. The GNex wasn't coming as soon as we initially thought, and because of that we've worked ourselves up in a frenzy over rumors.

    Verizon has only said this year, and it's still this year. I still believe it will come before Christmas, and hoping for the 8th.

    You woke up and are healthy today right? Therefore it's a good day regardless of any Galaxy Nexus news. ;)

    Here's one!

    I recently discovered this band with the album From Mars to Sirius.

    I bought The Way of All Flesh on Google Music last week!

    Which would just be another reason to launch the Nex. If a company's Q4 numbers are in the tank and you have a way that could help them, you don't wait on that, you boost those numbers as fast as you can.

    Quoted for truth. Although I do have a little bit of a stomach bug.

    I respectfully disagree. I do believe they meant to get this out before BF. I do really think that the 17th or 21st was originally planned, but somehow got pulled. The reason may not be known, but I think the ghost ads for $199 are evidence that it missed its first takeoff.

    Just my opinion. Not saying yours is wrong.

    Hmm. But if the reason for the delay is because the LTE version wasn't (isn't) ready, why the Japanese release date announcement? Isn't that a (non-us capable) LTE device, too?

    Yeah, but where's the mention of the OMAP4 processor? Couldn't they find it? I want it confirmed that it's the 4460, not the 4430.

    The Galaxy Nexus was probably slated for a mid/late November release however bugs arose during testing which pushed back the release (new OS so not surprising). Everyone that's had the GNex so far said the OTA updates have been improvements. So I think Verizon is just doing what they do and we should see this phone soon (latest is Dec 15th imho).

    This thread and the SGN have inspired me to write poetry, so here's a haiku.

    December 8th now.
    So many dates have been missed
    More delays cause tears.

    Possibly. But ads and such can be made up months in advance. I do think at one time there were dates in Nov, but as issues cropped up, dates were pushed back.

    Ads from places like Best Buy are sometimes even done with lots of speculation. For example, they couldn't even get the name of the phone right. If Best Buy was acting on any sort of official info from Verizon, they would have at least got the name correct. And for reference, the name was settled several weeks ago when Google/Samsung announced the phone. And even weeks later, Best Buy still had it screwed up. Just goes to show you that even the littlest details take time to flush out.

    I've never rooted my phones either. I think I'll start with this one.

    I was going to play with it for a while before I rooted, but I'm thinking this is how it might go now:

    Step 1: Open the Box
    Step 2: Charge Nexus
    Step 3: Root Nexus
    Step 4: Remove MyVerizon & VZW Backup

    Well many of us wanted to send Verizon a message that we wanted the GNEX and not their Motorola pumping.
    If the Razr is really not selling then believe me: They hear you loud and clear.

    Sometimes the only weak spot is the wallet......but it's a stinger!

    TI confirmed it's the 4430 in the RAZR, and 4460 in the GNex. Talked about similar "experience" between the two similarly clocked SoCs, but said the 4460 does have extra features.

    I'm sure you can find it through a search. I'm not worried that the GNex has a 4460.

    Unlocking the bootloader wipes the device so if you plan on rooting I would do that first before you do anything.
