    Ack, maybe your right. To be honest, I've been using a garbage free phone for years, and I just wanted to have something nice to play with finally. Maybe I'll go the route where I purchase a camera and mp3 player and worry about the phone later. How freakin anticlimactic

    Yes. I wouldn't bother if you're not midwest. You can try, but doubt you can get it.

    If it doesn't have "Nexus" in the name I'm not interested.

    This is what I was talking about. This will blow the Nexus out of the water and I have upgrades to use.

    Yeah, I mean it's not like we've waited months for the Nexus....oh wait.:rolleyes:

    I would buy the rezound if it was unlocked or if i really thought it would be unlocked soon.. sadly I don't put much faith in evil_@@@_null . he seems a little unstable based on his tweeting and he seems to have been just about there for the last 3 weeks.

    But that being said he could also be brilliant and acutally be just about there... either way waiting for S=off on the rezound is like waiting for the gnex except when I get the gnex i also get ics... that has been keeping me from the rezound ... (and the fact that miui on my TB is totally awesome).

    and of course just to echo the majority of the others i called 3 radio shacks, sams club, verizon wireless corp and non-corp stores and got the same don't know when it is coming out... this was yesterday...

    on another note I am getting a nexus on thursday... (maybe not a lte one)...

    I got the Note (and a GSM GNex) to tide me over until the VZW GNex. Careful... the Note is quite the device and a lot of fun. You may not want to return it!

    Disclaimer: If this turns out to be false, I'm shaving my head and driving to Mexico immediately there will be no need to hate me.

    Just asked my rep if there was anyway I was going to be able to pick one up before I left town on Thursday (15th).

    His response: "Oh yeah man, we have about 40 phones. You can come pick it up ASAP Thursday morning before you leave town."

    Asked him if the 15th was confirmed and he said it was. Like I said, FWIW but he wasn't even this confident about the 9th.


    Also, he confirmed (using one as his personal I bet) that the speaker is night and day compared to the RAZR meaning it's weak. Being that I never use the speaker I couldn't care less, but I thought I'd pass it on.

    Oh I agree 100%, and like I said I'm not holding my breath. But, I will say that the fact that he called me and seemed positive that Thursday is the day, and actually made an appointment seemed like some good news. Just passing it on....I m remaining optimistic that this is happening at 9am on Thursday....:)

    Wait...what? That is not true. You are saying that any call such that that call regards this discount contains a lie given that the caller did not receive the aforementioned flier? That has no logical nor ethical basis.

    If I call and say "I saw that my friend received the flier, but I did not. Is there any way I can get this discount, too?" how is that lying?

    According to the Android and Me piece, the TouchWiz version is a "new TouchWiz 5 which has been in co-development with Google during the development of the Galaxy Nexus, so according to the Samsung representatives, it isn't as intrusive to Android as previous TouchWiz versions were. It seems TouchWiz will play a minor role and only have little improvements to ICS. It won't control the user experience. One of the reasons why they're not going with a full TouchWiz experience is for a few reasons, one being that the ICS experience is very user friendly already and also it will also Samsung to update software on their phones at a faster rate than they have in the past." Take it FWIW.

    I didn't even mention getting/seeing the flyer. I simply call and ask about the promotion. No CSR has given me a bit of trouble about it either. I am straight forward / honest with the CSR and they seem to return the favor.

    or if you don't want a fruit phone you could get a tmobile nexus s 4g.. these are going for $199 on ebay and will work great in europe.

    then just get a sim over there and you are good to go.. plus you will be able to put ics on the nexus very soon...

    I can't tell from your comment, maybe you don't like the Rezound?

    There's an old saying about cameras - the best camera is the one you have with you when you need it - the worst camera is the fancy kit you don't have when the moment comes.

    The latest HTCs have undergone a generational update in their camera software, first in many years, and I think the results are outstanding (I'm enjoying a port of it over to my older HTC dual core).

    Sample pictures -


    As for an MP3, it has Beats audio, the package that everyone either loves or hates. To me that just says that it's worth a listen, maybe it's right for you.

    I tried to hat angle, too and I feel dirty for it... Except I said 'neighbor'. :D

    The net/net is that your account would be flagged as eligible if you were a target of the promo.
