    I'm going to stay up and be here/irc for the unveiling online, even though I'm going to pick it up at the store in the morning. :)

    Same for me. No ROM until I see one that just blows me away. Besides, after everything we've gone through, I really want to see and feel what all the hype was about.

    If you do those hacks, will you no longer receive the OTA's?

    Mine is also available 12/28. I've tried 3 times now and the last two have mentioned the "iconic portal" where its only done through their website, even when they sell you it in store it's only available based on what your discount on your account says. They said normally they can use a code to push your upgrade forward and order you the device immediately but with the iconic portal there's just no way. Did you tell them anything special when you called them? Did you mention it was for the Nexus?

    So how many are we guessing the corporate stores will have in stock on average? 1-10? 11-20? 21-30? 30+???

    I feel like the only thing still standing in my way at this point is them selling out, although my store opens at 8 and I'll be there waiting by 7:45.. hope that gives me a good enough shot.

    Yes talking about using it is way more awesome than leaks!

    So will you just do the manual root listed on this site or have you seen it elsewhere? Does clockwork recovery gsm officially work on lte? Don't want to brick my baby lol. Rooting my dinc was cake with unrevoked.

    It's been fun guys. I haven't posted nearly as much as most of you but I've enjoyed reading your banter. I'm picking the phone up first thing tomorrow morning then going out of town for a wedding.

    Plans for three days:

    Me at Rehearsal: On Gnex
    Me at Rehearsal Dinner: On Gnex
    Me at golf course: On Gnex
    Me on alter: On Gnex
    Me at reception: On Gnex
    Me hugging toilet bowl after drinking too much at reception: On Gnex

    I may lose some friends...

    Guys, it has been a long, painful journey for us. I just want to say thanks to everyone who supported each other in the stressful times leading up to the launch. Tomorrow we will finally have our prize, and we can all go back to our normal lives. However, I for one will stick around in the Nexus section to continue talking to you great people.

    And for those of you who haven't held one yet: I finally got to tonight, and let me tell you it is everything you're thinking it will be. We have put this thing on such a high pedistool but believe me it delivers.

    Of course it would come out the day before my biggest final! What is studying? Verizon planned this all along.

    yeah that's exactly why I'm doing it. That, and I want to be able to run apps that require root. And I don't want to have to backup/restore my data/etc twice (once doing dinc -> nexus and then again nexus -> nexus when I root it). So I'm going to root it as soon as I get to work ;)

    Not sure how reliable it is, but I think last week I read somewhere there was gonna be a minimum of 15 at corporate stores for the launch.

    Whats up guys!? I am SO EXCITED!
    I need to pose a question to all of you...

    My new upgrade is for February 2nd and I called the store and they said they could not upgrade me and renew the contract, I am going to call tonight to see if I can get one and renew my contract, if I can't I am going to go to the store tomorrow at 9:00am, any suggestions on how I handle it in there besides being nice and polite?

    Any suggestions?

    Yeah, I specifically mentioned I wanted to order online tonight. The only real difference I can think of was I previously had the early annual upgrade. Sucky that they're giving you a hard time about 2 weeks. This was the only time I've ever tried to move my upgrade date though.

    I'd keep trying a couple more times if I were you. Good Luck

    Quite the explosion. I get off my plane and I'm a gazillion posts behind! Not that I'm complaining!!!!

    Now I just need to find a way to get the phone before my flight tomorrow morning.

    On another note, I'm "almost" as excited to see BabyBlues' finale avatar as I am to get the phone.

    We hope you have enjoyed your ride on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus roller coaster by Verizon, at this time we would like to remind you to keep your hands in the car as we come into the station and to remain seated until the ride comes to a complete stop.
    We hope you will ride with us again when we launch our next coaster.
