    I'm going to sleep, and I'm very nervous, one week ago I woke up to reports of verizon employes cancelling their appointments to sell phones.

    Has it ever crossed anyone's mind that there could be a whole posse of anonymous 4chan users laughing at how they've slipped another viral "release date" into internet chain reaction machine? Idk why, but I always think of that possibility in these situations. :D

    I haven't seen any mention of this, and I'm curious about people who have monitored this before, but what are the chances, if any, of this hitting Amazon Wireless for $199.99, like the Droid Razr shows now? (Hell, it's now showing $169.99.)

    Anyone know how soon after launch they discounted? I know they did $111 on launch day for it... and then I think it went to $0.01 for Black Friday.

    Either way, Amazon Wireless seems to have by far the most aggressive pricing of brand new (new customer) phones... just wondering if anyone had any input on that for the GN.

    Not going to lie, if the Nexus doesn't drop on Thursday, I'm walking out of my store with a white RAZR lol.

    But like I said, since my rep got his personal Nexus this afternoon, I have very little doubt that it will be released this week.

    Sometimes I see these intext advertisements, words that have the double underline under them. What are those? And is it free to sign up, and do people make much money from them? I see them here and there in different forums and am curious.

    Anyone know whether corp stores will be selling screen protectors on launch day? If so, anyone know what kind? I remember seeing that accessories came in but didn't see anything about screen protectors.

    found something kind of cool, but pointless
    So on verizon they have a smart phone comparison tool and the javascript with the phones details is hard coded (compared to getting them from a database somewhere)

    The js appears both in the normal site and testman
    http://testman.verizonwireless.com/deviceFinder/data/smart_phones.js modified Fri 18 Nov 2011 04:29:12 PM CST

    and
    https://www.verizonwireless.com/deviceFinder/data/smart_phones.js Sun 13 Nov 2011 12:29:17 AM CST

    Neither includes the Rezound for some reason

    They are ads that the message board admin has set up. You yourself can't unless you run your own message board or website, in which case you can have them on your message board/website.

    i'm still confused as to why they never allowed a pre-order for this phone.
    so at least people could get the ordering out of the way and just have it show up at their doorstep.
