    For some shyness might be their El Guapo. For others, a lack of education might be their El Guapo. For us, El Guapo is a big dangerous guy who wants to kill us.

    LOVE that movie!!!!! :D

    Was this release date for the European release....just went into the Verizon store today with my brother in-law and talked to the manager and two worker bees who have never even heard of it yet let alone give us ANY information on a pre-order. I am in no way insinuating that the post is a lie but these people were looking like deer in headlights.....and like we had no idea what WE were talking about.....just saying...

    Excellent point, its not like cable internet where we are paying for the speed. We all pay the same rate, so we should all get the same data speed, as fast as Verizon can support.

    Store employees are admittedly the last to hear about anything (intentionally). Most will admit that customers know things before they do. That way, news does not get leaked very quickly or easily.

    Those of us that live at the Jersey shore (i'm in middletown just off of Sandy Hook the northern end of the ocean beaches) and we call them Bennies, all the ppl that come down from north Jersey and New York. Hate all the traffic they cause, but the money they spend does help the local businesses.

    I agree completely..... I am on AT&T .....I deal with the dumbest asses in the world......but no pre-order info on a phone coming out in less than two weeks? I have never Delta with Verizon but that's scary. I pre-ordered my captivate almost 3 weeks before it was released. ???? I would at least expect a "we are not taking pre-orders yet" or something. Man they are really kept in them dark over there.

    They don't know anything until you do. I have a great VZW store by me. They told me that they didn't know that the RAZR would be available for preorder until it was on the website for the whole world to see. They also told me that they spend their downtime looking at forums like this to know what is going on... seriously!

    If they even do pre-orders... it will likely be announced on 11/10 and available to preorder immediately with the announcement. FCC filing to magically appear moments after that.

    Yes, but also no, without any contradiction.

    After it sunk in - older poster, first smartphone, trusting 3rd time upgrader - both going straight to the Gnex.

    Details, details - kinda cool when you look at it a while. :)

    It's now totally official -

    The Gnex is now the first Nexus to go completely mainstream - and it's not even out yet!

    Total newcomers absolutely get the value. :) :) :)

    Ok, yes it is :D

    I like that idea too! I've always wanted to be in an officer's car and not be in trouble.

    I dont understand why google won't just do a worldwide release on the 17th. I mean if they really want to try and combat the iphone that would be the best way to do it. Come on verizon!

    If you think about it... kids aren't going to spend $300 on a high end phone (at least not middle class ones). So, it is really adults that are going to be buying one of the big 3 this month. Without trying to piss anyone off... those just heading to a store to buy a new phone will get the RAZR... those that have done their homework will get the Nexus. Not sure who, if any, will by the Rezound. The RAZR has a lot of hype and selling points that will sway people that are not super geeky or OCD researchers. My 2 cents, at least.

    Probably more about supply and distribution than anything.

    first time poster here. just wanted to say that the Gnex is going to be my first android phone and i am super excited about it!

    also, since finding this forum, my production at work as dramatically decreased. i simultaneously already love you guys and gals (for posting such great info) and hate you (for turning me into a robot that hits refresh).
