    Its sad that I'm actually about to critique a photograph of a memo ... but ....

    At least the 5 in 12/15 is of consistent design with the 5 in the line for the Extravert. It looks like that 5 is typeset too low in the Nexus line, but its also that low on the second line.

    Is someone typing their memo's on a typewriter? Of course, if they really wanted to obscure who the information was from, obviously they should cut/paste letters from magazines to form the message.

    You're right. I'm ashamed I asked the question. Consider it withdrawn. :eek:

    We won't hear anything this is hush hush on the down low kinda thing :D

    If VZ says anything, it will be to delay it again, not release it. That is what I have learned. :)

    First time posting in this thread, been lurking it since the beginning.

    If the 15th is a pretty solid date (looking more and more like it is).. Do you guys think there is a possibility of pre-orders opening at 12am tonight? This would be in sync with people getting the phones on Thursday the 15th.

    That definitely is a possibility, but why do you think VZW would not want to promote this phone?

    I'm in the Northeast as well, but luckily for me the primary account holder on my plan is in the Midwest. If you're in the Northeast, you may have some trouble - but check the link I posted for tips. Mention the "doorways" part, that seems to help, but you'll probably want to leave out the part about Midwest only. Good luck!

    I was just about to say the same thing. I'm putting this down as a fake, and not a very good one at that.

    They spent their advertising fund for the year on cheesy DROID campaigns.

    I know I'm personally going to try and not sync any apps. It will be a good house cleaning for me and I'll just manually install the apps I actually really want.

    If Verizon got their panties in a bunch over the 9th being leaked like sieve, then I'd expect that they would be a lot more careful with the 15th, if it is the true release date.

    I think VZ does not want to promote its release. The phone will be promoted, I'm betting, in a big way after-the-fact. I know, crazy isn't it, but I have to go with me gut.

    It's from Costco. We already knew it would be $289 there.

    There *should* be preorders starting at midnight or later tomorrow. I remember when I ordered a Bionic, it wasn't on the website the day before launch but I was able to call a CSR about noon that day and order one for overnight shipping. :D
