    Yeah - the only benefit to pre-ordering would be if the release is pushed back to Friday. If it really is going to be Thursday, then pre-order would be useless.

    We should create a poll and ask folks on a scale from 0 to 10 (10 being absolutely certain), how confident are you that we will have our hands on our precious on Thursday. I'm curious to see the statistical distribution of the folks in here. I have a feeling we'll see an inverse bell curve where most are either very pessimistic or very optimistic. But that's just a guess based on the general atmosphere/attitudes I see of posters. :)

    it can't be misleading when we all know this thread is for leaks and rumors. It doesn't say official, it says rumor, right there in the title, and post 1 links directly to the post used for that rumor. that is the best information we currently have, so that is what is in the title. the only way it is misleading is to a person discovering this thread for the first time... and even they would know it is based on rumor after reading the first sentence of the first post.

    if all we posted was official info, there would be 0 posts here. there would be 1 when VZ released a PR, and then it would be locked. boy, that would be useful! :rolleyes:

    FWIW, I got my call from a corporate store rep to set up a Thursday appointment to get the Nexus. Jacksonville, FL FTW.

    And, no, I won't believe it till I am out of the store with it in my hands, but I am going unless he calls back with bad news.

    I was told via on-line VZW chat that the DD promo is good through 1/15.

    Please note: OP title changed to say "rumor" in order to calm down any misunderstandings. It replaces the word, "leak". I hope that makes for more peace. I sincerely apologize for any hardships I may have caused anyone by the words I chose to use.

    So, of course my trip to RS was futile. Store manager said he had a ton in stock but didn't know when he was able to sell them. I'll still be in on the 15th first thing though to find out.
    He DID bring out a dummy model I got to handle though! Everyone knows the details, but the thing just feels so great in the hand, and not much bigger than my Bionic. I really liked the textured back on it. Really hoping on the 15th! He shot out the 20th etc. as well for possible release dates.

    The screen was on 75% of the time. Who knows what else he was doing with it.

    Thanks for being the only one that recognized the motivation for my rant!

    No I want it to say leak and I will whine and complain until it's changed back. :p

    That's nice of you Steven, but I think the majority of us know what "leak" means and take the news with a grain of salt after the roller coaster ride we've been on. Don't sweat it! :)

    Just got off the line with my local premium retailer, very nice girl. I asked about the Gnex releasing on Thursday and she said that it was still just rumors... but then she asks to put me on hold. She comes back on and says that it is fact releasing on Thursday and she just need to make sure that she was able to tell me. I asked how many they had in stock and she told me to just come in tomorrow night and put down $100 to reserve one for me, so i dont have to wait in line.

    I'm at about a 3-4 right now, simply because my corporate store is playing dumb. If they were one of the ones taking appointments, I would probably be more like a 6 or 7 :)

    I watch NASCAR for the wrecks and come to this thread for the fights. You mods make this thread boring! (obviously, I'm just kidding...about watching NASCAR..lol)

    It will work if you tell the CSR to put a note on it to have it work for the Nexus like mine did. I told him I was worried it might not be honored, and he said it applied to all 4g phones, and he said he put a note on it just in case. Verizon has always lived up to this sort of stuff, if it's on your account they will honor it.

    If the Nexus were being released with Gingerbread and a locked bootloader, would it be getting the same amount of attention? Aside from those two things, is there anything else about this phone that stands out from other current hardware?

    Sometimes I think I'm just adopting the crowd's mentality in getting excited for this device. I also can't help but wonder if there is ANY chance that VZW could flex it's muscles to force a locked bootloader on the Nexus. Despite the whole concept of a developer's phone, I can't help but think of the numerous manufacturers who have embraced open source while their VZW models remain locked tight.
