    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

    OK, this has now become like my twitter feed...refresh and go to the newest posts. No way i can keep up with the volume of posts here! Good thing that there is no interest in this phone, huh?

    And because this thread might (WILL) be closing soon - let me add my thanks to not only the (ir)regular "cast of characters" here, but also to the AMAZING mods who work their collective butts off to keep this a professional (ok, I use that loosely) and respectable site to go for information and speculation.

    Since I never properly introduced myself, for those who give a crap (or have a crap to give) - Central PA here - (#iloveyorkcity) redevelopment guy... Remember, we don't inherit our lands (and buildings) from our grandparents - we borrow them from our grandchildren! Anyone wanna buy 58 acres of an old Motorcycle manufacturing facility? And yes, I also own a flower shop - (as everyone says - I'm just gay enough). twitter @BlandaNace

    Again, thanks to Steven for being such a good guy - still love the pic at the Samsung Store in NYC - that is pure human happiness in all its glory!

    See you on the other side!!!

    just to point out, it's a fake 302 code, instead of being in the header it's a meta html redirect (why they did this I don't know). VZW.com/galaxynexus use to have the exact same html as the testman site.

    the vzw address is listed on the front of all the phones so not sure if they are waiting to put up a site tonight/tomorrow or are just going to leave the redirect in place

    I'm 95/5 I will be sold the phone in less than 24 hours, but only about 80/20 VZW will have given full approval of sale and public announcement of availability by then.

    I just had my local rep at a corporate store give me a call and set up an appointment for tomorrow when they open up at 9am. He is actually off today but got the word for the launch and gave me a call. Seems like a real stand-up guy. I am trying to keep my excitement to low roar right now just in case something does come up to in fact delay the launch for the umpteenth time. I will still keep the faith if it does get delayed and I will be getting this when it does launch. As it looks, so far, tomorrow is out victory day!! Here's hoping that it comes to fruition!!

    Sorry if this is a duplicate... I just don't have time at this moment to see if it's already been posted but I came across this site and felt it appropriate to share here.

    Has Verizon Released the Galaxy Nexus?

    I woke up at 4am last night thinking about the Nexus. I never did get back to sleep. From here on out I'm going on nothing but faith and hope that tomorrow will finally make the Nexus a reality.

    Anyone else notice the RAZR is nowhere to be found on the front page of vzw.com now. I'm not saying this has anything to do with the Nexus (I'm sure it doesn't), I'm just surprised Verizon would shun their baby like this. Of course, the Xyboard is there, so they replace one crappy device with another.
