    This is my first and most important post... I have to say, following this thread has been like a bad addiction...haha...I have been pulling my hair out waiting for this damn phone, my OG droid is on its last legs.

    Anyway, I Just got a text from a family member who owns several non-corp verizon stores. He said he was able to order 15 and will have them in-store on the 7th, I assume to sell the 8th. I'm happy!!!!!

    Sorry, I can't figure out how to hide this. :eek: (I'm on my iPad).

    I just hope you all stay away from my Concord Mills location long enough for me to get there after work. ;)

    Why is it that we cannot get a decent side shot of the two phones together? That one is kind of at an angle and I don't think it is quite fair to the LTE Nexus because it makes it look way thicker by comparison.

    I didn't want to blow my cover but you got me...I'm part of the AFSP. more commonly known as the Android Forums Secret Police.

    Actually, I guess all the shoe/sports/everything else talk just got to me. It's not that big a deal when in the hide tags, but I've noticed it coming out in the open more often now.

    Edit: thanks for the catch Early

    I go away for ten minutes and still no update from Steven?

    Seriously, man, get off the pot. You're not supposed to take merchandise into the bathroom.

    Think of the others that want to fondle the device after you!

    Okay, I'm getting so tired of refreshing this Xoom.

    I'm headed to the Android Market to download an app that will refresh the page after throwing the Xoom at the wall.

    No take it into the bathroom... remember the Seinfeld episode when George takes the book into the bathroom and the store makes him buy it..

    "Sorry sir (Steven), now that you have taken it into the bathroom, you're going to need to buy it"

    If Steven leaves anything other than post #1 of this thread on that GNex screen when he's done (or when they kick him out because the store is closing), i will be very disappointed.

    Well they gave The Verge a indication on the date. "Unfortunately the price and release date are still nowhere to be found, though we were told that it may be coming in 'the next few days.'"

    Not sure if that means the release date announcement will be in 'the next few days' or the phone itself is coming 'the next few days'.

    He' probably trying to pull a Costanza when he brought the book into the Brentano's bathroom. It'll be flagged and he'll get to keep it. Brilliant strategy!!

    FWIW, not that I buy into the store level info, but I called a indirect retailer asking about the Nexus, she interupted and said the "The Nexus Prime, yes, we will have it next week." So maybe it's really going to be it this time. The last time I called the same store, they had no idea what I was talking about.
