    I don't think 200 MHz wouldn't make that much difference. I need to look at that ifixit tear down and see what's going on in the top 1/3 of the phone. (everything, I know)

    Looks like I've been long ninja'd on the "Son, I am disappoint" origin, but here's another link. It's from 4chan originally, like so many Internet memes..

    It turns out that the other guy has an appointment at Verizon on Thursday morning. Something about a Nexus.

    [Hide] Check out the S&W 340PD or MP version available w/CT grips. We have a couple of these and my wife loves hers, it goes everywhere with her. [/spoiler]

    Take this for what you will, but I bought a Droid on ebay what seems like a month ago and only paid 32 bucks including shipping and was surprised how great the condition was. As always, YMMV.

    I hope we can preorder online before Thursday. Ditching my HTC Hero and enjoying the 4G LTE dual core large HD screen goodness.

    But also keep in mind that when it DOES release, the days before it does SHOULD be kinda celebratory, you know? I, for one, am going to be optimistic about the 15th, and enjoy the anticipation. If you want to be pessimistic, that's your choice.

    "As of 3pm today it is, could it change yes....."

    I took this as meaning they got an email @ 3 PM today.

    In trying to fill the time, I stopped by my local VZW corp store. The manager was there staring out the window when I walked in, and greeted me.

    She told me it's been "delayed indefinitely" and was "supposed to come out last week." She went on to explain "I haven't even seen the training materials for it!"

    Whatever. It was supposed to be released last week (her words) and no training materials? Mmmkay.

    She then directed me to a sales associate who took my name ( I think every one of them has it now). So, the guy pulls out his phone to copy down my contact info and mumbles to himself, "Let me get my calendar open."

    Now, the first thing I thought of was, "he knows the date is Thursday and is putting me down for Thursday am." He didn't say much after that. Now, I suppose his contacts were part of his calendar, I couldn't tell what phone he had with the cover on it.

    Either way, interesting or not? Meh, we'll see.

    Probably same thing that happened to me while I was healthy at work.

    I don't know about this.

    The 9th was a pretty set in stone date until issues cropped up at the last minute. There were emails leaked, stock in stores. Frankly, I think Verizon is planning on releasing it with little fanfare.

    I know there's a TON of excitement here on this board, and I'll be at my store at 9 AM Thursday (unless we hear something different), but the Nexus is a phone that is intended for developers. The Nexus S didn't have a huge release and I don't expect this one to either. It seems like a huge release because we're an insulated group of extremely excited tech geeks/nerds but outside of us, there isn't a ton of buzz.

    Ask 100 people on the street about the phone and 95 of them will probably have never heard of it, or if they have, don't see why it's any different from a Razr, Rezound, Bionic, or iPhone.

    I'm excited, and we're excited, so I think we believe this phone should be promoted because we know it's amazing. But Verizon, on the other hand, probably sees this as a Niche phone that lacks their branding. To them it isn't a Droid and doesn't have much Verizon on it. To the layman, it's another Android phone and they don't really care about being trendsetting.

    So while we think this is huge and should be promoted like crazy, Verizon is probably just going to slip this out quietly and then maybe promote it.

    That's a pretty big assumption.
