    Just picked up my Asus Transformer tablet (not the Prime) from Best Buy. That will give me something to play around with this week in between studying for finals.

    I'm starting to think the 15th is the cut off day for me. The Nexus is nice but it doesn't blow me away. The video and pic quality look pretty bad and after suffering through the crap quality of that on my DX I don't know if I want to do that again. Might just get a Rezound.

    I still have two lines eligible for upgrade next year so I don't have to live with the Rezound forever. I can just get the best phone next fall.

    as an amateur photographer, i can't imagine doing it without CS5 in addition to Lightroom. it's actually really neat to see how well all of those programs work together, particularly on my macbookpro.

    as off-topic as that is, i'm actually really looking forward to this same experience on the nexasaurus and tasting icecreamsandwiches.

    If the 15th doesn't happen, I'll wait until the 22nd. If the 22nd doesn't happen, I'll wait until the 29th. If the 29th doesn't happen, that's when I'll actually get the rage.

    Ya think we'll break that one too?

    The Rezound is a great phone. You can't go wrong. The 3 things that made me return my Rezound is ICS in Q1 in 2012, larger screen (don't like capacitive buttons I always accidentaly hit them when watching a movie), and being able to overclock GNex to 1.5GHz and its already faster than the Rezound at 1.2GHz.

    Once you play with ICS, you'll regret having to wait for it. It's that much better.

    So random thought. It occurred to me as I made my last post that because I haven't SEEN the nexus I really have no idea how big it actually is. Then I had a panic moment where I wasn't sure if it would fit in my coat pocket. (Scottevest coat pocket made specifically for touch screen phone.) For anyone else that might have one, I have found the dimensions of the device online and measured the pocket and am happy to report that it should fit just fine. Snuggly, but fine. :)

    Easily. This thread will continue to get views after the lock, just as the Dinc thread did.

    when I held the newborn device the first time and saw no "Google" or "nexus" birthmark, I said, "phone, you are going to have prove yourself worthy of my love".

    Not sure if the windows ports are as up-to-date as the Linux versions, but it does way more than the average person would ever need.

    Paying cash for the device because they can't ring up the SKU is real sketchy in my opinion.

    I'd rather wait for the release of the device.

    I tried the $100 promo thing, it's a long response from VZW but here's the important info:

    It goes on in agonizing detail about how to do he trade-in program.

    Oh well, worth a shot. BTW, I'm not in the Midwest so I did not expect much but figured it was worth a try.

    Since you didn't get the mailer, any attempt to acquire the discount would require lying. You have made it very plain here that you are against the VZW policies around the information blackout on the Nexus, so we can not be a party to any prevarication used to fraudulently gain the discount that you are not entitled to.

    Sorry.

    Well I won't be overclocking because of battery life. I really want a 4G phone more than ICS. I have played with ICS. Again, not blown away. It's very nice but I guess after all the hype I was expecting more. Just starting to feel kind of blah about the Nexus. By the time it come out CES will be right around the corner and they will showcase phones that will blow the Nexus away. The Nexus specs aren't all that great to begin with IMO.

    Like I said, I have two upgrades next year so I can go 9-12 months on the Rezound and then upgrade to a phone superior to the Nexus and I probably won't have to wait three months for it. Just my two cents.
