    I just remembered, didn't one of our Florida members say his mom saw the GNex on a screen at Verizon? Didn't another Florida member say he was going to visit that store to verify and take pics? Did that ever happen?

    Was I dreaming the whole episode?
    Wouldn't that be a pathetic dream?
    Would I be banned if I said what I'd prefer to dream about?

    The answer to the final question is "yes".

    Yup. He was great and will be missed.


    You're understandably a little behind. :p

    I don't think anybody was able to confirm that.

    That was my thinking as well. But he said that he put it in his apartment to "hold" it overnight because he was afraid that it would get stolen from the office otherwise. :rolleyes:

    He is a relative of someone on the board at the building, which is how he got the job in the first place. So I see why he wasn't arrested.

    Ytram was able to extract official pics of the SGN from Verizon's website, which might indicate an "imminent release".

    DL and Phandroid have picked the story up and posted it.

    Yeah, I'm definitely going to look at both before choosing. With the Razr getting ICS very shortly after the GNex is released (assuming it IS released prior to the Razr getting ICS!), I think my decision will be more hardware based than anything.

    There's nothing more important than reliable hardware. Having buggy hardware detracts immensely from whatever software is on the phone.

    As requested, I compared them and you will not be disappointed. The images went up on March 16th, and the phone was released the following day.

    *gulp*

    Aren't you worried about the enclosed battery losing it's ability to hold a charge for the 2 year contract?

    Anything is possible but I don't think it'll be released tomorrow. I will bet on seeing something other than the sign-up page on Verizon's website very soon if these images are any indication.

    I've given that consideration BUT, having physical buttons on a phone with software designed to be buttonless would likely be like mammy glands on a boar hog. Pretty useless.

    No need in putting lipstick on a pig. No matter how you make it up, it's still a pig.

    I know I would be. My OG Droid started drastically losing it's ability to hold a charge in a little over a year.

    Hmmmm. What leads you to that conclusion? FCC rules or something else?

    You mean you want to go through this again? :eek:

    we don't know that the new images weren't just updates to the old images. The first images could've went up in April, but the only ones we would know about are the last uploaded images.

    I tried some HTML/javascript hackery and couldn't get the GN video or 360 swf to load. Anyone else hacking HTML? :)
