    From what I understand, quad cores on mobile devices aren't about having 4 monster cores, but rather having more efficient use of the processor in addition to having a low power consumption core.
    Wish I had links, but anyone else that did feel free to post them...

    So I went and talked to Verizon's father.... The big guy in the red suit at the mall. I went and sat on his lap and asked him hey where my Galaxy Nexus is for Verizon. He gave me a weird look and said get off my lap you tool I have no control over Verizon. I don't know if I should believe this guy I think he could be an imposter. His beard looked fake!

    Haha, I am not uncalm yet. But like I said, so far, the first poster who had a rumor of a delay has been right 7 out of 7 times now. All the rumors in the world don't equal fact. It will release when Verizon decides to release it. I still hope for the 15th, but what started out as one rumor last week, (of which I remember distinctly posting "I don't buy it") became fact as the info started pouring in after stores open and people called to check on their appts. It is getting to that time now, so we shall see.

    So, I'm taking the 15th release date with some salt, but I'm also taking the "it's not gonna happen on the 15th" motion with salt too. We all want it to happen on the 15th, but we're all aware of how stupid Verizon is. The fact that we are all jaded by their stupidity makes it really easy to believe that the 15th will be skipped over just like every other date. They'll add one more excuse to try and cover up the fact that they're stupid, but we'll all know...
    We've always known...
    There's no excusing this level of stupidity.

    My opinion? They should just release the phone today and give you a slip of paper when you take it. The paper would read,

    Cheetara is actually the same way. We had a conversation late last night where she basically recommended I wait for the iPhone 5. :rolleyes:

    She says the Nexus "isn't that great".

    For the record, she's an iSheep, so I don't put a lot of stock into what she says on that front.

    But she does say that there are a lot of people over there who are pissed at the way their idiot bosses are handling this. Apparently they didn't care too much about the botch job they did on the Bionic because they knew it was inferior to what was coming down the line shortly afterwards.

    So I thought I'd step in and post some news I've heard from a pretty good source at AC forums:

    "Our meeting this Thursday was cancelled, because we are launching a new phone. We were told this morning, that's all I can say."

    He's a good guy and wouldn't lie about this as he's excited for the Nexus, too. Here's hoping we can buy bright and early on Thursday morning.

    Totally agree with you, but in all fairness, trying to put myself in everyone's shoes, this is what happens when we get butt-hurt repeatedly over the same release. It is natural to become guarded to protect yourself.

    Let's all just hope for the best and accept the rest.
