    Hahaha sick! I also have a Reseller guy who said he would get a live model a few days before release so I could come in and play with that too. Still haven't heard from him either! If it really is Thursday, I should hear from him Tomorrow I hope!

    This is probably from an authorized retailer (not corp) who is working through a list of users eligible for upgrade.

    While on the phone with my most recent CSR he asked "Are you waiting for a specific phone?"
    Me: "Yeah, a phone that you're not allowed to discuss. So unless you want to violate the gag order, just focus on the promo!"
    CSR: *chuckle* "...yeah..."

    I got a laugh out of it.

    The dell E-series still has a WUXGA option, the 15.4 screen laptops do that, the move from 16:10 laptops to 16:9 (the same hd used on tvs) meant that most laptops moved to 15.6 instead of 15.4 and the 1080 HD screens

    OT:
    Sadly, it's getting damned hard to find 1920x1200 even in full-blown monitors, let alone laptop panels. I'm holding onto my BenQ FP241W monitor for dear life since it has that resolution and is an MVA technology. (The reason 24"+ monitors got so cheap suddenly is everyone's been using low-quality TN screens with horrible viewing angles, but I digress...) Barring being able to find a current-gen laptop with 1920x1200, your next best bet might be trying to see if any of the panel manufacturers still make screens at that resolution which you could buy separately. You could get it installed to replace a stock 1080p one.

    I don't remember if there was a release when I received the first one. Last week, nada.

    Thank you so much!! Mentioning the midwest region really was the key! I tried calling a couple times the last few days without any success but after mentioning the midwest region, the csr found the promo right away. He got a little snippy at the end of our conversation because I didn't upgrade to a new phone right then and there. I didn't mind though, it's a small price to pay for $100 off! Thanks again!

    Nothing new to add here but thought I would mention my corporate store near me is telling me that they still have no idea when it will be released. I would have thought that if it was this Thursday and they knew it, that they would have tried to hint something to me to get me to come back in.

    I did get to mess around with the demo Nexus and I agree with what others have said, it is quite fast and is the perfect size. The rep also said that the extended battery barely adds any thickness. I'm more excited than ever.

    I already got the more recent ones when I posted that - the others have already been reposted a lot, so, I have to leave that to the OPs and hope others see the idea moving forward.

    If one didn't know any better that would sound like a drug deal or something :p
    Well, I guess we are addicted to this phone... ;)

    Just wanted to let anyone that is considering a case for their Nexus know that TPU cases has added a 'high gloss black' and 'high gloss smoke' style cases to their order page. I contacted the company and while they dont yet have pictures up of those cases they will be similar to the Samsung SII in color/finish so you can look at those for reference.

    I was also told in the email that they have the other colors listed as well if anyone is interested in them. I would imagine you would have to email them about ordering the other colors since they are not yet on the order page.

    Colors/Styles:
    Matte Back Black
    Matte Back Smoke
    High Gloss Black
    High Gloss Smoke
    Smoke GlitterFlex
    Pink GlitterFlex

    That's ironic, but I also got the same text about the upgrade....I know I shouldn't read between the lines, but man I am grasping onto any thing that looks like hope.

    OT:

    Nice idea, will consider that when my current laptops die. I have 2 1920x1200s still alive -- an HP (elitebook) and a Dell (precision). Got them both on closeout/refurb-type deals. Both work fine now but I know they won't last forever.

    For desktop, I have a dell 1920x1200 right now and will be keeping an eye on the stock/availability of those resolutions going forward...

    Three corporate stores are telling me to show up Thursday and the local radio shack is telling me to show up Wednesday. There still seems to be confusion on the date
