    It's locked to Verizon's LTE frequency - a la, it cannot be used on any other carrier's LTE bands.

    Eep! I wonder how BB stores will fare... I've got quite a few in range, but it'd be nice to get one out the gate without calling them all. And I really want one that's untouched!

    Who wouldn't? lol but I might give it a few days before I root it; first thing I want to do (f3r r34lz d1s t1m3 :cool:) is get used to the new UI and customize the settings to my liking, which I'm sure is something everyone does when they get a new phone :)

    Might have been trolls. Someone was saying earlier they suspected a lot of the debbie downers from earlier today to be deliberate deception.

    Or it could have just been misinformation. I don't think it's a stretch to say that communication has been muddled for this launch.

    I'm thinking it means there are 2 flavors of the device (GSM and LTE) and you can get the LTE version in the USA maybe?

    They weren't trolling - some weird corporate and local communications, that's for sure.

    Moving forward - please treat them kindly, they had only the Nexican interests at heart.

    I know this from checking - mods don't play no trolls at the last minute. ;)

    Plus - lost is the noise are a lot of those same people saying they were happy it wasn't so! :)

    We're all in this together - this is a big win for Android, a big win for pure Android on Verizon and just a pure win! :) :) :)

    i was at bestbuy, and played with a rezound for the first time. it was very nice but it was lagging. like i'd press phone and it would say "processing" for some period of time before going to phone.

    the screen was amazing though. whites looked very white, no crossthatching effect visible. just perfect screen.

    i then asked about battery life and the guy said "well these aren't built for battery life, they're built for being a computer." And I said "computer? I have a tablet for that."

    but good salesman i guess, didn't answer my question.

    edit: i told a couple friends at school today that i'm getting a new phone tomorrow. and they asked what kind. i proudly said "galaxy nexus" and just got blank stares.

    Me too! Although if I can get the phone for $175 from letstalk.com with free overnight shipping that may be worth considering.

    I talked to one 30 minutes before the announcement. Told me that 100% for sure it would not be launching tomorrow. It is one thing to be ignorant... it is another thing to give people false information.

    Just poorly informed or misdirected store reps. I got the delayed line from them today about 10 minutes before the release was confirmed and I can promise you I wasn't trolling :)
