    So the camera and video aren't great and now the speakerphone might not be that great? :(

    I went from having to get the Nexus to I might have to make a choice between it and the Rezound. I use the speaker all the time and I don't want another phone with a crappy camera. Sigh....

    I just came from a VZW corporate store close to my work. I went there twice last week as well. Last week they were disavowing all knowledge, like I was asking about nuclear launch codes or something. Today, totally different reception.

    First, the nice manager lady recognized me as the stalker from last week. This time she smiled at me when I asked about "any intel on the Nexus" and she offered (I didn't have to ask) if I wanted to see one. Imagine my answer.

    So, she disappears in the back for a few minutes and comes out with the elusive white box. She pulls off the sleeve and when trying to open the two halves of the box, it pops open suddenly and next thing you know, we're both staring at a virgin Nexus on the floor between our feet. Good thing it was carpet.

    I held out my hand, not certain of what to expect. All I can say is... WOW!!! (Worth Our Wait!!!) OK, so the battery was not in it, but even so, it was truly sweet. Next, I asked the most loaded question of all (she's heard it from me plenty before); when can I buy it? I offered that I had heard Thursday was the day. She asked what was the date Thursday? I said "the 15th". She said "then I guess I'll see you on Thursday". I take that as confirmation or as close as I'll get out of these guys.

    So, I reserved a place in line right when they open on Thursday. Leaving nothing to chance, I also have several dates reserved into 2012, which is a year in which either the world will end, or Verizon might actually release this phone. I suppose one is about as likely as the other.

    So EVERYBODY is saying the 15th now, am I correct? Do we have a single source saying otherwise?

    Do I take all of their words for it along with Hanette/Miss Piggy/Cheetara's word for it and take Thursday morning off (presentation to give in afternoon so have to work)... Hmm?

    I think this is happening for sure now. I've just got two more calls from Verizon stores now.....all trying to setup appts for the 15th. So, why no announcement from Verizon though? This whole launch is a huge joke really.....

    Trust me, the camera is fine. It may not be as amazing as the SGSII or the I4S (possibly even the Rezound, but I wasn't that impressed with the Rezound's) but it is FAR better than any phone released this year besides those two (possibly 3). It blows away all of the Motorolas and definitely any last gen HTC I've used.

    Rep said the speakerphone wasn't terrible, but the RAZR was definitely louder. FWIW, the RAZR is incredibly loud IMO.

    Well IF it finally comes out Thursday, I'm still planning on ordering online if it's available at midnight. Hopefully I can do overnight shipping and receiving Friday morning (when I'm off work :D).

    Charging question :

    Why does my phone act wonky when it is on the charger? The Phandroid app zooms in at a single touch anywhere on the screen. SwiftKey doesn't want to type at all. And notifications don't show up?? It's a Verizon charger.

    my wife was just at a vzw store. Dood said it will be out on the 15th, delayed since the processor is burning out the battery. Glad I wasn't taking a drink when she told me that.

    Man the rumored specs for that phone look so nice. Sadly it probably won't come to verizon and I'm stuck with them for a while.

    I would like to know this as well. I have to call a guy to get my upgrade early, but he said he can't do it until it's officially announced.
