    No, I think he is saying demo units are getting the update. It means the OTA should be ready to go whenever consumers power on the Nexus. Basically, it should finally be ready to sell.

    Anyone know of an android app that lets you text w/ wifi only(phone is not activated)?
    I have searched around, but haven't found any kind of consensus on a good one. Since the greatest minds are all gathered in this thread, I thought I would ask?

    TIA

    Don't be silly. This is the Galaxy Nexus. They don't have to be turned on to get OTA updates. ;)

    Apparently, the Radio shack down the street from me received one GNex and, of course, said that the system wouldn't let them sell it to someone who tried recently. They don't know when/if they're receiving more, but the woman said she hopes so because lots of people are asking about it. Oddly enough, she said specifically that they can't sell it til Sunday.

    OK so my corporate store CSR text me and said the Nexus launches TOMORROW...come get it, come early, limited supply. I asked if 16 or 32gb..32only, asked about price...he didnt know that yet...I said let me know on the price.....I'm probably gonna wait till after I get back from a cruise after xmas. Dont want a phone that may have problems . Guess I'll read the reviews and wait for a MHS root fix!!

    Guess its finally here!!

    Welcome! I think if they wouldn't acknowledge then likely it was a corporate store. They apparently just can't say until the press release.. don't know. I went with a reseller, because thay seem to know just as much, but don't get in as much trouble for speaking to us about it??

    Verizon has botched this launch so hard, by keeping everyone in the dark, yet still letting enough official documents to leak, that the poor employees are taking a beating form all of us asking them constantly for information that they can't give. It really sucks for them:(

    I'm probably late to the party, but I always thought Goku didn't like Androids.
