    As far as I'm concerned, this year Christmas comes on 12/15.

    Morning Gnexers!

    Here's to hoping we can get through today with no last minute delays.

    Can't wait for my GNex!

    I was going off the $289.99 price we've been seeing, not $299.99

    Oh, thanks... but I was talking about him in Houston. He has an appointment downtown, but said that's an hour away from his house and normal VZW store. I was trying to make it so he could do the appointment without missing out on the GN. I have my GN reserved at RadioShack in Cranberry. I feel soooo much better knowing there's one with my name on it!

    Thanks, I've been lurking for awhile but the G'nex has finally brought me around to registering.

    Touche' In that case your math is good. ;)

    I think you can shop Wireless Advocates for no surcharge. I ordered a ReHound on Black Friday for $50 and they never asked me for a COSTCO membership number.

    How thick are the TPU Cases? I'm thinking about getting a case but i usually let my phones go naked since i like to keep them as thin as possible.

    Any word on whether we'll be able to get Swype for the GN? I have a Galaxy Tablet 10.1 and it didn't come with Swype, however I was able to download it off the website. I don't really want to live without it, so I'm gonna have to find one way or another to get it on there. I appreciate any help!!

    Good morning! I think this is it. I've been sick with a cold since last friday when I took off hoping for the launch but today I woke up feeling well. That has to be a good sign right?

    Extremely thin -- I hate cases too, but will probably run this on my GNex.

    oh you are certainly correct, there is a VZW like 5 minutes walk from my office but I'm just loyal and a rep at the VZW store by my place called me twice in the last week to keep me informed so I want to give him the sale.

    There is temptation all over the place to make me go against my better judgement but I want no "evil spirits" hanging over me and my new phone so I will bite the bullet and reward my rep and keep my appointment. Sad that I will have to wait until later in the day but I'll feel better about myself after it is all over.

    Mine arrived two days ago...

    I like my phones naked... and I only like a "barely there" case for grip...

    Of course I don't have a phone to put into it... but this feels good, looks good, and meets my barely there requirements... I think you'll like it.

    If Verizon were to issue a PR today...

    is there a uniform time during a day for PRs? or is it randomly anytime before afternoon?

    Thanks for the link! I just ordered "Matte Back Black TPU Case & Screen Protector for Galaxy Nexus". I would have never thought about ordering it before hand, but that's obviously the better way to do it!

    Wow, is VZW really going to launch this thing without announcing it first? Fingers crossed for tomorrow!

    In the past, it's always been around 10 AM or so (plus/minus an hour or so). Doesn't say much for now, however. This phone's release is anything but predictable
