    Glad to see Costco is keeping the 15th open. I don't like the phrasing "as early as" though. No announcement from Verizon today, tentative wording from Costco, I'd say this is still very touch-and-go.

    I'm sure this question has already been asked, but..

    Is everyone getting a screen protector for their Nexus since it unfortunately does not have gorilla glass?

    I personally have never owned a screen protector. Do the screen protectors often get annoying after awhile, or can you barely tell you're using one?

    Caboose is awesome. It really is amazing just how far they have come with the series. Season 9 was amazing and it will only get better.

    It's a supposed planogram. It's diagram or model that indicates the placement of retail products on shelves in order to maximize sales (from wikipedia). That includes currently released products.

    Hahahaha, mine too. :D Though she was pretty psyched that I was able to save $100 with the 3G to 4G thing.

    it could be worse:

    "So, you just showed up at this household to show a minor something you're referring to as your Nexus? And you really think this is appropriate? Before you say anything, I want you to know that we have the forum logs..." LOL

    That is the worst plan-o-gram I have ever seen. I am not a believer of that one.

    Don't confuse not having Gorilla glass with being fragile. Samsung is using its own in-house fortified glass, basically comparable to Corning's, for the GNex.

    However, to answer your question, I'll still be getting a screen protector. Even though the GNex's screen is oleophobic, I'm still too OCD to let my screen get smudged.

    She asked the question simply because she wanted compliments. Very typical. Back to nexus talk! :D

    You are making a huge assumption that it's even a "her".

    I found out through talking to a few different reps that you need to be in a 4g area and i have yet to talk to anyone who says it is valid anywhere but the Midwest.

    Yeah, this has been re-hashed several times, but in short, the phone has fortified glass, just not "Gorilla Glass". I'm sure it's equal to that of "Gorilla Glass" BUT, as many of us owning phones with GG (Gorilla Glass) will tell you, it does not mean you will not get scratches or anything. I have a nice, long 2" gash down my phone which does have GG. Caused by the metal prongs on my wife's engagement ring. Pure incidental contact as well. Screen protector is always recommended! I ordered a Steinheil (spelling?) protector already.

    I don't know if I'm dumb to try to jump from a Samsung Reality to a Nexus but all of your posts make me want it! It's either a Nexus or Rezound.

    One question - is anyone worried about the unlocking part with your face? Do you think this is going to cause trouble? Is there a way to turn that off and just brush to unlock? What if someone else wants to use your phone?

    The camera is what interests me the most. I have 9 grankids and it's been a pain to take quick photos of them. Most come out blurry. Even my two dogs get blurred.

    When we go to concerts, I'm jealous of those that whip out their phones and can zoom in close and upload to FB right away!

    I'm not up until Jan 1 2012, but hubby is. He is too old fashion and is not interested, he loves his Barage! I just don't want to miss out on the double data promo!

    Pahahaha! Busted out laughing at work. Thanks.

    On a different note, even Australia is beating us to the GNex. Sigh.
