    I missed this as well...thanks for reclarifying. I'll also say thanks again to Cheetara. She has been a fixture in our "circle of sources" throughout this insane ride.

    Getting close to 500 posts for me...yes, still a relative noob. I may save #500 for a 12/15 "Good Morning" shout out.

    Dude!

    Blend the phone, mix it with Pace salsa, and pretend to choke on it. Post it to youtube with added footage of your hospital stay, all the while proclaiming that it wouldn't have happened if the GNex had released.

    That might shame them enough into doing it!

    This is a rumor thread, and the title does say "leak". Have a good day! :)

    If you do a "Will It Blend?" video with it first, it might be easier to swallow...

    Good evening Gnexers.

    So I take it still no word? I did get the $100 off notation to my account, though.

    Called another local store immediately after this. They offered to take my name and number, but provided no date. Moments after hanging up with them, the guy called me back and asked me to instead go on the website (verizon.com/nexus) and sign up for the e-mail alerts. I told him that I had done that and that I was hoping to make an appointment for the day I thought it was. Here's what he said, "I've heard a lot of people think it's Thursday. If I had to bet on it, I'd say it wouldn't be this week. I've worked here for 4 years and every single launch, delayed or not, I've known about the launch a lot further in advance than two days. I'd be looking at sometime right after Christmas" Again, this is just one guy's opinion. The guy I spoke to at another store in the same town was not under the same impression. So, take it with a grain of salt. I think all this means is that we really can't be sure of anything anymore. I'm just hoping at this point...

    Not banking on that, so many have promised to eat their phones, and never follow through.

    To be fair, I've seen plenty of Galaxy Nexus ads on forums etc. from Google, so they are advertising, and their YouTube page has tons of commercials. They did promotions on their Twitter etc.

    My primary argument is simply that the 9th was a Verizon-released date (not public, but internal) and it was pulled at the last minute. There wasn't any advertising before that, which leads me to believe that we don't need to rely on advertising or press releases as indicators of a release pending. Stock was in stores etc. It seems that all signs point to Verizon releasing this phone without promotion considering it's already in stores with no ads so far and many, many reps saying they've received emails saying the 15th is a tentative date.

    I also think it's totally crazy to not promote this phone, but I just feel that's what's going on. Lower profile release because it doesn't have Droid branding or whatever, but the facts point to almost no advertising before release if the dates are to be believed.

    Guys I have some super depressing news.

    Panasonic to slash plasma TV panel output

    It looks like Panasonic is slowing but surely getting out of the Plasma business. First it was Pioneer killing off the Kuro brand and now Panasonic slowing killing off the VIERA brand. Soon there will be no good TVs available. Get em while you can. :(

    i just called 3 stores in the orange ca area and they all said they have no release info yet and no stock. i take it all with a grain of salt but it definitely does not make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside...

    I'm glad I got mine a while ago, but maybe I will think about trying to get a newer model for cheap.

    No offense to that guy's years of experience, but there has never been a phone release quite like this either in those 4 years.

    Leak doesn't imply a maybe. You know what does? Actually using the word "maybe. "

    I talked to a Verizon rep last night (called *611) and he found the promo deal we are talking about "3g to 4g" promo $100 off. Stated it was only for the Chicago land area and that it would not apply to me (I live in Denver). I have the strong feeling that anyone who got it "noted" on their account will not be getting it. If you read the promo's wording, they are linked to a phone number. Doubt they will be just handing out a $100 credit to a brand new in demand phone, but I could be wrong.
