    So true. But sometimes it is still fun to go buy a couple girlie rags at a store with a younger cashier (or a much older one) and watch their reactions. It's harmless fun for me.

    For what it's worth, all 4 stores in the Houston area that I called said Thursday is 100% certain. One re-read the email (that he received this afternoon) while on the phone with me.

    So double the Dinc thread would be what, around 93,000?

    I really, really hope we don't make that!

    They are pretty nice, and given the rumors of her vast experience, I'll bet she would 'deliver'. With an 'all clear' note from her Dr. .....I would.

    Ugh between reading the possible release date for the Nexus and the supposed delays for the transformer prime.. I think I'm going to go crazy... I did call a Verizon store today (among numerous others) but this guy stumbled and didn't know what to say when I asked him about it. Finally he just said call back tomorrow to get your answer... whatever that means

    I figured since we have so many people joining and since this video is still true, we should post it every week until release. Hopefully this is the last time that I have to link Hans video!

    With all due respect, it is sort of a circular argument to say that Verizon doesn't care about marketing the Nexus because most people don't know about the phone, when it is also true that the reason most people don't know about the phone is the lack of marketing from Verizon.

    I agree with you that most people never heard about the Nexus. Then again, I'd bet a good chunk of people don't know the difference between 3G and 4G, or what a 720p display is, but that doesn't stop Verizon from advertising these things because they are selling points. The responsibility of a marketing department is to convince customers they want a particular product by setting out its selling points. The Nexus would be an easy product to promote even to the lay-person (how about largest screen, 4G, revolutionary operating system for starters?) and the fact that Verizon hasn't promoted it at all is really shocking to me.

    EDIT: I am aware that Verizon could still advertise this phone after release, but I think it is crazy to not hype a phone that is coming out so close to Christmas, only to turn around and hype it after people have already done their Christmas shopping. Also, I don't know why Google or Samsung haven't stepped up with advertising dollars either.

    Just called a Best Buy near work. She admitted that they have stock, that they were waiting on the manufacturer to clear it. Whatever that means. We know the damn thing works. It seems eve they're confused...

    I'm in Dallas and I've heard the same thing --- Since last Thursday. Guy said it was delayed a week. They said they got an email that day. They said it was internally official but could change. They even let me play with the phone, so I have this feeling they really didn't give a #$@$ what upper management said to say.. (which was.. AMAZING!! 30 Mbit/Sec speedtest on LTE)

    I'm starting to think that the reports of people saying the phone isn't coming out Thursday are living in the sticks and their stores just won't have stock on day 1.

    I'll be hitting up either the Eagan or Burnsville shop, haven't decided which yet. They're about equidistant.
