    He's going to the Samsung store in NYC that has the GNex on display. I am really considering taking the hour and a half trip to the city to check it out!! :):)

    It isn't "basically confirmed" though. Kellex and his sources say the 9th. I know it's only one day, but the 8th is FAR from set in stone...

    FINALLY! :cool:

    Will Steven get the iPhone?

    Will he be lured by its sugary goodness?

    Will Siri sing her siren songs to Steven, slinging seductive Samsung slurs superimposing subliminal Serengeti-like scenes subconsciously and sensually beyond Steven's capacities for rational thought?

    Will Steven's eyes go into auto-rotation trying to juxtapose retinal and HD displays?

    Discerning fans need to know!! :eek:

    By the way - many of you know that Steven and I are in constant touch - what I didn't tell Steven was that I recorded his spoken travelogue getting to the stores....

    Okay, since I cannot be the only one checking it here is how to check if the nexus prime is in the preorder system yet (hopefully, the rezound was never in the system but the dinc2 and razr were)

    go to https://preorder.verizonwireless.com/iconic/ hit new customer (it's faster) and check both under new phones and try typing it in accessories to see if it shows up there

    Yep, count me in that group. My Omnia II has been great (love the stereo speakers, I will really miss them!) but I am getting tired of the nonexistent development and old outdated programs. I've been out of contract for a year and patiently waiting for the GS2 ever since it was announced @ MWC in Feb... but we all know how that ended up for Verizon.

    Bring on the Nexus! I am looking forward to Android as I finally feel it's polished and matured enough with ICS for me to make the switch.

    Gotta figure out how to get Android to look like my Titanium 6.5.5 setup. :D

    Make sure to take pics of the GNex.

    Better yet, just take the phone and run!

    Solid Orange:

    How are the games for 3DS? Honestly I want to get into a few of the games I missed out when I went PS1 over N64.

    Also, I hear 7"ers have some troubles with displaying magazines and web pages when compared to the 10" tablets. What's your experience in that regard?

    Namrak:

    Only trouble is, this is a gift suggestion. I don't think asking them to go on craigslist to find me a used gift is really a viable option :D . Sorry if I didn't make that very clear. I'm not really buying it, only suggesting it as a gift for myself.

    Salizai01:

    I had heard some rumors of this as well... hmmm... Maybe I should go with the 3DS and hold off a while and buy my own tablet if something like this does show up.

    Episode IV tonight BB? I don't know about that guy, Bedlam and the B1G 10 Championship game are on tonight. Throw him a curve ball and say you want to watch football and you will have to watch Star Wars tomorrow. He wont mind, he clearly wants to just spend time with you.


    Boom, I just scored you a 2nd "not" date.
