    I agree with you...............
    From what i understand the quad core phones have a "5th" core that does everyday tasks and the only time the phone uses the quads is when they are needed.
    This allows the phone to not use too much power. Open to correction.....:):):)

    Welcome! We're glad to have you here. :)

    I feel your pain - my Droid has completely stopped notifying me of received text messages, and also is refusing to put through about half of the ones that I send out.

    I currently have a nokia phone from 2005 running verizon backup assistant.

    When I get my galaxy nexus, it will immediately import my gmail contacts, correct?

    Will I then need to use verizon backup assistant to import my current contacts?

    Will they replace my gmail contacts? Will they all automatically be added (creating hordes of repeats)?

    "As early as..." is vague, and probably purposely so.

    I don't see it where? :D Does Costco run Verizon? They should they seem to know more about the Nexus.

    As early as the 15th. Semi-ambiguity ahoy! But still, looks like the floodgates are opening for leaks on the 15th.

    Come on Big Red, I'll show you mine (money) if you show me yours (Nexus).

    I wonder if that is a common thing to have in their listing. Be a pretty good burn by Costco on Verizon if they had to add the "as early as" specifically for this phone...

    I want to root this phone prior to setup but . . . it doesn't look as easy as "unrevoked forever". When I rooted MY Dinc, I had to do it the hard way so I'm not averse to it but when I rooted my wife and friend's Dinc I found the Unrevoked method much easier. Anyone know of the easiest way?

    Sure I know about THIS THREAD and also THIS THREAD .

    EDIT*** Actually the Superboot method looks pretty easy.

    By the way, quick plug for everyone - come join the Galaxy Nexus Watering Hole thread in The Lounge! All the names you know, with all the off-topic antics you can handle. :D

    I expect it's where everyone will be after this thread closes when the GNex finally launches, but it's open now! So come hang out. :)

    Long shot... but do you think Verizon is trying to rebrand it the Nexus Prime just like the "Droid" line?

    I had the same thing happen. Watch for random Facebook postings and text messages.

    So this means that it is not releasing today or tomorrow at Costco!

    I have seen a lot of people ordering the Diztronic/TPU case. Does this case allow you to use the docks with case on? Was just curious why it is so popular?

    From the H in the network indicator (HSPA+?), I gather that is a GSM device?

    I wouldn't mind that at all, I like "Nexus Prime" much better than "Galaxy Nexus," but it's far too late to change the phone's name now. Nexus Prime was likely Google's internal name for the phone before Galaxy Nexus became official, someone at Google probably goofed and left "Nexus Prime" in the text of one of the updates sent out.

    I just realised something...didn't most of the relevant PR updates from Verizon go out to various other websites way before they appeared on Verizon's? Aren't we more likely to hear news on the Phandroid front page (or BGR or DL or whoever) before it pops up on the Verizon PR page?
