    Someone posted this on an Engadget discussion thread thought it was pretty funny. If anyone knows the song "Stan" by Eminem then they will get a kick out of this.

    "Dear Verizon Galaxy Nexus, you still ain't called or wrote a release date,
    I hope you have a chanceI ain't mad - I just think it's F'd up you don't answer fans If you didn't wanna tease me with a promo in October
    you didn't have to, but you coulda signed an autograph for Matthew That's what i named my OG Droid, he's only two years old We waited in the blistering cold for you on 12/9, freezing up with 2 battery pulls for four hours and you just said, "No."That's pretty $hitty man - you're like his F'in idol He wants to be just like you man, he likes ICS more than I do
    Anyways, I hope you get this Verizon Galaxy Nexus, hit me back,just to chat, on 4G with a strong release date, truly yours, your biggest fan This is Stan"

    :p

    On the contrary, I think we definitely DO want it. When we all buy our Nexuses tomorrow, the OTA update will be ready when we activate the phones. This is in stark contrast to the few who have managed to get one already but have been stuck with the original 4.0.1 build. Tomorrow the phone will be ready to update right out of the box. :cool:

    Ok, so I am doing the simulator, and the person who did the manage applications HAS to be a tech guru who hates bloatware. The demo on where to go to uninstall an app goes to a VZW bloatware app! Score!

    Which device the sales people push will depend on the device Verizon gives them more commission for. They gave sales people higher commission for an Iphone when that came in Spring 2010 as opposed to the Thunderbolt that launched relatively close to that. If they get more money for a Razr they will push that, just depends. Otherwise, the sales people just want you to walk out with a phone.

    I was actually starting to have a sinking feeling about tomorrow, but this simulator is a good sign.

    C'mon, let's all mentally channel the phone's release tomorrow.

    "Oohmmmmm oohmmmmm ohmmmmmmmmmm... Nexusssss"

    I just got confirmation from 2 corp and 2 indirect dealers.

    I had to ask the corp guys if they had any demos and they are programmed to answer "we dont put any phones out that have not been released yet" so then tomorrow would be better? "Yes"

    My friend that works at Best Buy here in Cincinnati (the one that almost sold me the Gnex LAST Friday) texted me and told me it was a GO for tomorrow. She texted me yesterday with that information.

    Not sure if the fellow Columbus-ites have posted on this, but the Easton AND Polaris stores both confirmed they have a "crap load" (not kidding, the guy at Polaris said this) of them in stock; however only POLARIS said they are launching tomorrow. And I get it, I've seen the 10897243897 posts about why we get different answers, just giving my people a heads up.
