    It was nothing other than a bunch of people being impatient. Look for Nov 10th to be the day ;)

    Okay guys, I'm going to try an experiment here:

    Sun, sun, go away! Begone! I command thee!

    What? It became night? IT WORKED, I DID IT!!!

    Best part of the Verizon press release?

    It confirms it's NOT exclusive to them.

    Typically, they play up their exclusive launches. This one doesn't.

    For reference, the RAZR PR release said:

    Later this Year????? Ughhhhhh, come on Verizon! You people know what that means right...Any Thursday between Dec 1st-29th! Earliest is Black Friday I'd say.
    So much for VZW bringin the heat quick.

    I'd imagine they're going to give the Razr a full 30 day run or so before they release this.

    Oh!! We should totally have a release day chat party similar to the announcement one, but all day. People can drop in and share their excitement, or complain if they must.

    I am so stoked now. F October. Go away. Bring November as you leave though.

    Funny thing is, there will still be some who think it won't be coming to Verizon! LOL

    So I just did a quick browse through VZW news archives, and this fact convinced me this press release was thrown together quickly because of the social pressure applied by us. EVERY single device press release this year has included both price and date. Until this one.

    I'm not so sure this was a standard press release.

    No confirmation on 16 or 32GB. That's a deal breaker for me if there's no SD support.

    The moment of truth has arrived...an official announcement. That wasn't so hard now was it? Let the celebrations begin.....

    This thread was truly epic. What fun I had. Thanks for the digs, kicks and licks.

    and remember..................Hans

    Yep. That aspect and fact it's still not posted on their website are the only fishy parts. Looks pretty legit though.

    Nothing is solved yet. When is Sprint getting it? AT&T? Is T-Mobile even in the running anymore?

    am i correct in assuming this means it will indeed be a subsidized handset and not only available at full retail?

    Rushed or not, there's no way in Hell that they'd omit the word EXCLUSIVELY.
