    Tegra 3 phones should be coming out around March IIRC, those phones will likely be made for ICS. It's only appeal to me now is it's a Nexus phone that will get updates first.

    If there were other devices coming out on VZW that had better specs, but afaik there aren't any new phones (other than the droid 4, which isn't really a competitor) coming out between 11/17 and 12/31. I agree with the phone years thing, but in this case I want the things only a nexus can give me and the other features/specs of the phone still aren't going to be surpassed before 12/31, so I personally would not call it "outdated" if it releases even on 12/31.

    I completely agree. I bought my OG on launch day and called mid-afternoon to see if they still had any left. They laughed at me (still going through therapy ;) )

    Is it the consensus that VZW will definitely issue a PR before selling the phone (whenever that may be)? They won't stealthily allow stores to start selling?

    By the time any tech is released to joe public tech is usually outdated by about 6 months. That is how quickly Technology R&D is. That is why everyone claims to be the best and the next best thing is right around the corner. Every so often there is a major advancement the last big one was when Steve Jobs announced the iPhone

    Perhaps a :rolleyes: after "it's a lock" would have gotten the message across a bit more effectively... lol

    I'm with you. Not until I've bought it and it's home will I be happy.

    The way I look at it (pessimistic as it may be) a phone like this is over 3 months old - which at the current rate of improvement is pretty old, IMO - 6 months being the cut-off for "too old to be worth it."

    If you think about when the device was done being manufactured... it was well before the announcement date. So I would add a month or two to the mid-October announcement day and then some.

    Sad face..... but I still want one so bad! It will feel blazing fast to me after using an OG droid since Nov. 6th 2009 (release day) and will more than satisfy me for a year at least :)

    (OT: although I sure do wish it was going to be adapted to a padphone like lenovo or whoever is going to do - this was my idea the second I saw the atrix ^_^)

    I agree with you 100%. Verizon may very well never have another phone like this.

    Im not buying the whole Tegra 3 hype.. Half the time the software doesn't catch up until the newest chipsets are out anyway. We will be on the Tegra 4 before guys start writing apps for the 3.

    Does anyone have a picture of the email stating the 15th? Someone was able to get pictures of the system stating the 9th, and then another picture stating COMING SOON!

    All I (and most of us) really need to see is a picture showing the 15th. It would quell so many rumors. It wouldn't be in stone but it would atleast help.

    The main thing, and i'm not being sarcastic, is that there is no consensus on anything w/ this phone. Everything is speculation outside the fact that stores have stock and what the managers are telling us.

    All these leaks and no information from Verizon should at least let us realize that there is no consensus. We are all going to find out last minute together.

    A galaxy Note would make all my dreams come true, but of course VZ is here to make my dreams come into nightmares..

    I have a dinc I've had since early 2010, so I'm not new to Android. I still don't think a few weeks makes the nexus outdated. If you all think that, why are you bothering to wait for this particular phone? wait a bit longer and get a quad core or wait for 2nd generation LTE :)

    FYI, I was also able to order the accessories via *611 on last wednesday. They had to transfer me to telesales since the CSR couldn't redeem my Living Social $50. You may try that route as well.

    Yes. Evervolv has one in progress, and R2 has one up at rootzwiki. Seems they're already gotten most things working properly.

    Precisely, but March is 3+ months away, not 2 weeks away. I don't see how people can say the phone will be outdated if it comes out on 12/31 instead of 12/15. Seems like hyperbole to me. *shrug*
