    Yeah, that makes no sense as a release earlier would help build even broader awareness before that weekend. The closer to that weekend the less those who are less informed than us ever realize it's a christmas option.

    Yeah that makes sense too. I don't know, maybe it would make a bigger splash on the last weekend of Christmas shopping?

    Who knows. As I said, it sounds like speculation, but I wouldn't be surprised if this was true, too.

    It's Verizon.

    Great point. No matter how unlikely or illogical the thinking we have to consider where it's coming from.

    I for one doubt Verizon has any coherent, thought-out strategy driving this release. VZW's behavior comes across as indecision bordering on incompetence, but like you said, who knows? ;)

    I wonder if there will be an ad campaign to help push it. Hasn't some of the previously leaked info indicated that they are thinking that the Gnex will be similar to the original droid in terms of demand?

    Nah. That seems way too organized to reflect how VZW does business. :D

    I actually wanted a Note before I wanted the Nexus, but they had no word on it coming to verizon. Again, I'm a big guy with big hands so the Note is a dream come true for me. I wish Verizon would carry it!!

    Stopped by a Best Buy Mobile tonight, and the guy there was awesome. He said "Verizon doesn't want us telling people this...we've got the phones in the back, but we're not allowed to take them out of there until Thursday." He's also been chomping at the bit for a Nexus and is amazed at how badly Verizon has done with this launch.

    Strangely enough my offer to buy the phone tonight and then live in "the back" until Thursday didn't go anywhere.

    Hey guys,

    Has anyone ever activated a LTE phone before? Can I do it at home or do I have to have them put a SIM card in it?
