    I posted this information on Sunday after visiting a Verizon corporate store, but this thread moves so fast and you may have missed it. Now that we're getting so close, I feel it's worth repeating. I wasn't able to get any information about the Nexus that day, but the salesman did ask me if I was a veteran and when I told him that I was, he said to be sure to bring in my DD-214, which proves I was in the service and I would get 15% off.

    Wow, that's a $45.00 discount! :)

    Called 2 vzw corporate stores in Boston. Both said they have them in stock but haven't been given the go ahead to sell them.

    The rep at the Boylston Street store said she's dying to have the phone too. I mentioned that there are some rumored dates, and before I could finish she interrupted me and said tomorrow is a rumored date but she hasn't heard anything official.

    Also called 3 RadioShacks in the area, they all denied having any in stock.

    No, they plan on leaving it free, but only for this phone. All the rest will have the charge.

    Sleep is for those who already have their Nexus. For us, we require no such thing. All we need is the motivation of a potential release to keep us charged up throughout the night!

    Hey guys I'm back! Went to my local reseller who last week told me to come in today and he would have a demo. Lo and behold, he was playing with it as I walked in! Let me play with it for a good ten minutes or so. MAN! This thing is SEXY! :D We even booted up another Gnex to try out Android Beam. It was sick!!!!

    Anyways, he confirmed with me tomorrow is the day and to be there at 9 when they open :) I asked him why some stores still deny and he told me there is a gag order out and they can't say anything until the official PR is released (he checks them as well).

    There ya have it; I was down earlier but now am CONFIDENT it'll be in our grubby hands tomorrow!

    Just curious, what is with the double postings today? Noticed this on 3-4 occasions.

    Sorry if this has been explained already.

    Does anyone know if Verizon has a corporate presence in Blacksburg, VA? That seems to be where all of the locations in the simulator are, but google maps doesn't show even a corporate store, just some premium retailers.

    wasn't there reports yesterday that mentioned that the 12/15 date was in the infomanager? I'm surprised if that was true that there isn't a screenshot...

    doubt it setting in...

    oh help me.

    All I have to add to all the speculation is that I went to the corporate Verizon store here today and the rep there told me that they had been told that the release was now on a day to day wait because there was a battery issue and verizon wanted to wait until they had an OTA update to send out at the same time as the release. Take that with all the NACL you want.

    Yep, +2 million - for a while now - and around 10k away from doubling the Dinc thread. Practically striking distance to this crowd! :eek:

    I love the GSM box so much more than the Verizon.

    Frakking idiots even have to screw up the box.

    Its just amazing to me how varied the responses from vzw stores is, i called up about 5 locally in MD and although I got a couple to admit they had stock, none of them would say anything or claimed to know anything about the actual release. Most were nice people who I had a conversation with and seemed to be relatively upfront, one even blamed the delay on Samsung, said its the manufacturer holding it up (doesn't seem likely)

    SO after all of that, I decided to call a vzw corporate store down in Florida where my parents are for the week, the guy has a waiting list going, says its unofficial for tomorrow, all of the communications theyve had have pointed to tomorrow, but he's been trying to get a definite answer from his higher-ups but they're being "wishy-washy" in his words.. And to completely make sure I realized I need to move to Florida, he told me they have a decent amount in stock and its too bad I'm not down there because he's got one running in the back that people are checking out
