    Funny, they called me and said the same thing (that it was becoming an internet rumor from phandroid). Nice to see that they're aware of us!

    Does anyone else get the feeling that Radio Shack is full of BS?

    Only 1 to each store? Or does Verizon hate them that much?

    Ha! Ninja'd the Love Tunnel!

    But I think this week is definitely different than last week. See my reasons here (only linking because of the speed of this thread!)

    No new news.

    I stopped to see my trusted source that was blind sided same as us last week. He checked for new emails and the only reference to the GNex was from the folks that manage and send out promotional materials for the store.

    The email said that the Gnex had been delayed and to now put up the associated marketing materials the 15th.

    He said that he did not get that email last week, so this is new from his prospective. He said that changes can happen and have in the past with marketing instructions, but when he gets this type email he considers it pretty firm. And it usually doesnt change.

    So, still nothing irrevocably firm, but another "maybe" for the 15th.

    Considering this very well could be the last contribution from the Source, just want to emphasize how much we appreciate what you have done for us.

    Somewhat optimistic, but there is still time for Verizon to change its mind and tell these sources something different, so I wouldn't pop the champagne corks yet.

    And still no sign of any Verizon advertising, it's a travesty if they release an android flagship phone with no fanfare, and I doubt google is going to want to launch 5.0 or whatever on their network the next time. It's far enough away from the razr launch now that they could focus their marketing efforts on the nexus.

    Alright! Thursday is my one off-day of Finals week! Means I can pick it up, play with it for a while and study a little for an EE final later that night!

    Now let's hope Verizon actually announces something about this, so they can't just change up the date again!

    If stores open early on Thursday, I am so going in before school starts @ 8 AM :) Or if there's a midnight launch I'm going to that.

    I know I said this last week before the 9th, but...
    WE'RE FINALLY IN THE HOME STRETCH! For real now :D :D :D

    Just got back from an out of the way Radio Shack. "Why yes iowabowtech, we have one in the back, let me get it for you". Then the same bells and whistles went off as many others have experienced. He said, it's showing 12/15 now, sorry. Not huge news anymore but yet another verification of the Thursday release. Come on Verizon, don't jack this up.

    My Incredible has been acting very, very buggy lately (Force Closes everything all the time, internet not working, etc). I NEED this phone to be released Thursday!

    Well at least if Verizon does for some extremely peculiar reason change its mind last minute and warn stores not to sell on the 15th, we'll be seeing a whole lot more "accidental" sales across the country due to miscommunication. But Verizon wouldn't do that because that would completely ruin the launch. Entirely.
