    Well now you jinxed it; tonight or tomorrow morning someone will come with a reliable source and say "sorry guys, the 15th was nixed and the Nexus is now on hold indefinitely"... ;)

    I just had a flashback to about a month ago when we were all anticipating the release. There were those "crazies" who were saying 12/8 and we all shot them down as being totally incorrect. Look who's laughing now :(

    Who am I kidding. Just asked to use the rest of my unallocated vacation hours on Thursday. (Thursday was the last day I could use them, so would have used them anyways).

    So, the moment of truth looks more and more likely to be Thursday. "Excellent!", to quote Mr. Burns in his sinister sneer. Now I just have to hope my local BJs or VZW corporate store actually gets it. The only way for me to gain more purchase options than that (Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc) would be to first return my Nov-15th-purchased Rezound and briefly go back to my Droid 2. "We won't go back!!", to quote a certain starship captain...


    I'd have to at least have played with a demo unit first in order to make a decision in advance, but noone conveniently close to me seems to have any out and about to handle, so I'm unlikely to be able to test drive one until it's publicly available. I have to look upon the Nexus' screen "with my own eyes", ala Vader. If I decided to keep my Rezound in the end, then going back to a D2 just to repurchase a Rezound will have been a complete waste of time and effort. Plus I have one last $50 "New Every Two" to apply if I purchase from corporate, which other vendors won't use. If Radio Shack or another local brick & mortar shop had it for $199, for example, then it'd be worth my time. Watching the Giants game on NFL Mobile last night really showed off how beautiful the Rezound's screen is, so the temptation to remain with it is great. But, as a man of science, I must make a solid comparison weighing any pros and cons first. (With that, let me thank all who've shared any GNex info and impressions as they've popped up. That information has been most valuable in my research).

    I'm just reporting...I called 7 corporate stores just now, they all said there was no date yet.

    Most of them sounded incompetent, tomorrow all 7 could say sure it's launching Thursday.

    If I was going to Europe for six months I would want a DSLR. Even an entry level one will blow away a phone camera.

    I got the discount, and if you want more details check out my previous posts, but it did not involve any lying or fraud. Basically I sent an email saying I heard about a coupon that was being mailed out for $100 off 4G phone when upgrading from a 3G, that I was planning on upgrading my Droid within the next week or so and that 4G was just starting to roll out in my area, and asked how I could go about getting the coupon.

    I would highly recommend going. I can't remember you saying if there is a significant other but if there is find a special reason to go. Unless you're a vegetarian, then it's pointless.



    I'm glad to finally know what was causing it. Thanks!

    Probably just dealing with some unknowledgeable employees like I always do :/

    We've heard of enough other substantiated sources that Thursday is the day, but since it hasn't been told by Verizon to employees yet, the only employees who know are the ones who follow the rumor mill just like us (probably).

    Quick question for my fellow Nexicans (sorry, I stole that title... be flattered, not mad),

    Should I make an appointment at Verizon for Thursday? I saw in another post someone who had a friend at the VZW store made him an appt. for 9AM. Is this what time of day we are assuming it will be available? I mean I don't want to make an appt. for 9AM if the official launch isn't until noon.

    And before someone says, I know no one knows for sure. As a newbie, I'm looking more for people who have been through this time and time again with other phones. So other than the one that launched on the ceremonial 11:11am, what has the common trend been? And is an appt. necessary, or would a walk-in suffice?

    Thanks in advance!!!!
    -AJ

    the store that you bought it from and then got contacted to return it to should default sell you their first unit as you likely saved many rear ends from losing their jobs... just sayin'
