Can I borrow your time machine?
It's going to come like a thief in the night. That much I'm sure of.

Ya, instead of Groundhog day it's Groundhog week.. First we start strong on Monday with "it's going to be Thursday"... by the end of Monday or Tuesday "I'm also hearing Friday"... now someone hears the 20th...
wonder what today will bring...
Keep Calm and Carry On
Phish are friends not food..
The only real disappointment I'll have if it isn't the 15th or 16th is that my purchase will likely have to slide into January.
Phandroid article mentions the 20th from reader tips I believe (and they apparently heard it from Verizon employees...i.e. I believe CSRs). Major54 mentioned that his store manager friend heard that it was actually going to push to Friday since the OTA may not be ready in time for Thursday, but a soft launch could still happen. No one is putting faith in any source because of Verizon's last minute delays.
it didn't cause them to delay their 4g xyboard release so I call shenanigans on the 4g outage being the problem.
Steven has vouched for him, as such his credentials are beyond reproach.
If the manager is willing to text Major at 9:30pm, and take a call before 8am, I would like to think he wouldn't push HIS date. Some friend if so
I just called and talked to a rep about the 3g to 4g $100 promo and she found it after I mentioned doorways. She said something about Chicago and put me on hold for 5 minutes, and then came back asking me if I'd like her to call me on Thursday to order the GNex (I just told her earlier I wanted the Galaxy Nexus, she offered up Thursday all on her own), and I told her thank you but I'd rather get it from the store. She said that's fine. I asked her if the discount is on my account and she said yes, I would receive a $100 credit once a 4G phone was activated. Is this what other people were told as well? Does that mean I still have to pay $299 up front, and then I'll get a $100 credit on my bill? I'd rather have the $100 up front, obviously. I live in New York fyi.
Well said, Its funny but so true. I wonder how this will go foward with future phone relases maybe VZW is making a point to discredit sources.
If im not mistaken i think there was an article somewhere about it. but ive only heard of 2 ppl saying delayed further. My guy at Shack has been holding one for me and he said I could come on the 15th to pick it up last friday. Now that ive gotten $100 off upgrade I might be going to a corp store
This is how it all started last week before the 9th. Earlier in the week strong evidence towards an actual launch, but nothing official oddly. Then later in the week, suspicion that launch might not happen. Then launch gets delayed.
We're in this same loop this week, so I now HIGHLY doubt it's coming out this week. If I never got a hold of the dummy model, I would just drop out now. Seriously.
Hahahahaha, here we go again!!!! I knew it!!! Are you ready for the inevitable "delayed until the 22nd" news?
What the hell is happening now?
The 15th is not looking good?
What a total screw up. I wish I could be president of the world for one day.
Everyone at Verizon involved in this cluster muck would be forced to become slaves of their customers for ten years and then be deported to Greenland.
I was doubting waiting after the 9th happened. I went into a non corp store late and the guy put one in my hand and turned it on. Amazing!!!
But im starting to get frustrated.
In all fairness to the doubters, it is a human reaction to be guarded at this point. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice....well, we all know how it goes.
...And we are kind of approaching the fool me eleventeen mark.
I'm staying super hopeful, but cautious at the same time.
Good grief, you're right, it is a loop!!!

This is all Scott's fault somehow.
Yup. I remember last week that I posted that I would've taken a bet that we would hear the 22nd this week. Watch.
verizon looking at buying netflix.
Verizon Rumor Mill Keeps Spinning: Will It Buy Troubled Netflix? | Reuters
No, because we won't get that news until next tuesday morning ... Verizon has cut down the delay from a two week cycle, to a one week cycle, to now a 24 hour cycle...
Doesn't Greenland already have the Gnex... ha.
Other than looking to boost their Q1 sales, I cannot fathom why they would want to miss the holiday sales window! You'd think they'd want this out Yesterday!
Yeah someone posted that last night, along with the comment "Great, we already had to wait one month for new releases, now its gonna be 2-3".
It's funny. Despite being burned by missed dates these past several weeks, I still remain cautiously optimistic it'll happen sooner than what skeptics are thinking.
I guess I like pain!
This is priceless...
Has Verizon Released the Galaxy Nexus?
