    I bought the incipio case from verizon last week. It actually feels very nice. I can't wait to put nexus in it. I posted pics a while back...

    I wonder if I call on the day that Verizon releases the Galaxy Nexus and order if I tell them I got the mailer with $100 off 4G phones if they will go ahead and take it off. There is no coupon, it's simply printed on the mailer. How could they know if you did or DID NOT get it on your mailer? I'm going to try it.

    I think we should all take about a two hour break. Go for a walk. Bake some cookies. Call your mama. Call your Grandma!.......just step away for a bit. Nothing will be missed.

    I know people here won't like this but I wonder how many of us would already have caved and bought an iPhone if they had released the iPhone 5 instead of the 4S. An iPhone with at 4"+ screen and LTE. It would be almost perfect. The video and the camera would be great.

    I don't know how you are so certain... these three stories plus what I heard from my rep just tonight about the 15th no longer being confirmed have me very much doubting we will have our GN fix next week at all.... :(

    I am still holding out for a Tuesday soft launch and then all retail wide on Thurs. What I heard too when I was last minute denied a GN and the sales woman had to call her district manager to confirm. He was kind enough to talk to me also and was very apologetic. Said he is looking at the email that says soft launch at VZW on Tues and for them on Thurs. Now I don't know if that came from the regional mgr and where he got it from or a fwd straight from VZW but hey if it happens it happens right.

    I laugh inside (not lol) at VZW and every phone release not meeting expectation and then a phone comes along that will blow away expectations but they slow play so long they end up out of chips. I move that we start calling them Big Red Tape.

    I would consider getting an iphone again if the screen was over 4".

    To anyone that's frustrated with the Galaxy Nexus videos, go check out my thread.

    It may or may not help, but the software looks brilliant.


    Edit: I'll give it a shot if no one wants to ;)

    I'd make a substantial bet that I would cave in.

    Well worded. I'm really starting to feel that this phone will not be released by Verizon. I think we've got two corporations acting like children and playing chicken with this phone.

    All release rumors have been wrong so far, no matter how credible the sources have been. Maybe a better way to word it is the sources were correct but the dates changed, amounting to the same thing.

    When the rumors went to hell before Thanksgiving, it really bummed me. I spoke to my lovely, talented and understanding wife who helped me achieve perspective. When it doesn't release I'll be disappointed but not bummed. It's a phone. When the release doesn't happen, my days on Verizon will be numbered. I'm pretty sure Sprint has good coverage in this area.

    But I'm getting ahead of myself. Verizon has a bit of time to grow up and act like an adult. I hope it happens this week. In any case, I've got two weeks off for Christmas and one vacation day to burn this week so it's hard to get down. :)

    SVDO may be an issue for CM9 support.

    As for devs starting to stay away from it, I would simply note this for the Rezound, dated this last week, from Be Hopeful. - xda-developers -


    See also -

    List of Devs for the HTC Rezound (Devs Check-in here) - xda-developers

    I don't claim to have any guarantees, but I question the idea that this will be an unlockable phone with the devs fleeing it.

    I'm going to regret telling you guys but I'm actually seeing Breaking Dawn.
    I can hang in till the phone is out. I know I can.

    And no! You are not fired. Not allowed. :p



    I was there for the theater and decided to walk around for a minute.
    I'm actually only about 5 minutes from you when I'm home though. Hawthorne is a mere hop, skip and a jump.

    After watching a ton of different videos recorded by the GNex, I have to say...some look wavy as hell (like the one recorded with the dogs) and some look perfectly fine, and even other look really amazing.

    I wonder if there is some sort of protective plastic on the camera lens, and if there is, I wonder if the waviness is a result of people not taking it off?

    I'm almost certain those mailers are tied to your account, so the coupon is tied to your account.

    In my case, I got my shitty NE2 $30 discount.

    Not that it adds anything new, but my local Best Buy had the dummy unit out and on display with a coming soon tag underneath it.

    And coming from a DInc, I thought this thing would be huge, but it doesn't feel like it. It, like a lot people have stated, just feels perfect in my hand. As for the what the Rep said, we just talked about how a bunch of people keep asking about it with no mention of a release.

    And you know what? I'm now content after touching a display unit. I could just tell it's with the wait. Just my $.02.

    LOL!!!!

    just called *611 to verify my ne2 and asked about "a phone that rhymes with lexis"

    Guy read off the official VZ statement about media reports and saying they wouldn't release a phone that didn't meet their criteria

    hard to tell over the phone but I think the CSR was reading off the statement with a John McEnroe "they cannot be serious" look on his face
