Oh, and a little bloatware? What am I going to do with y'all? I leave for one day....
Verizon seems to keep on delaying it? By the time it comes out it won't be ICS exclusive anymore haha
Can't be delayed if no official launch was ever announced
I am not shocked by this. Disappointed, yes. Anyways, I see why they would do this. I strongly believe if it is in store, and people play with it, most people will choose the SGN over the RAZR and vigor. Mostly because of ICS and possibly the screen. Verizon knows this and knows what makes them more money. I still have a hard time believing this leak though! Either way, it doesn't bother me. I just want it and know I will be showing it to everyone I can to boost sales. Better sales means a better chance of more nexus devices on Verizon and more accessories!
I am with you, partially. I started rooting and modding this summer and then learned of the Nexus and wondered where I would fit in on the scale of mainstream/techie
First - i will semi behave and say that I had so many comments about how you phrased the wrapped foil statement, I will not type them though
Second - i know who I'm coming to with battery issues.
Yay. Another jets fan!
If only they realized that by making it the red headed step child it only makes us want it more but want to deal with them less.
I put my phone down for a couple hours and come back to find euphoria and depression. Glad to see we are back to normal.
Plus they will probably have some special sale for black friday on the razr and rezound so by making it web only and then having it in store the next week they would get some to buy the razr/rezound and make verizon more money with all the bloat verizon sticks on those phones.
To me, it's delayed if they already have the merchandise on hand and ready for distribution and sale, and are only looking to try and get as many RAZR's out before HAVING to put a phone they dont have their bloat-ware and Verizon branding all over.
IF Samsung has the verizon phones ready, and its not like they will change the hardware last minute, then VZW needs to sell the damn phones already!
How do you know verizon has them yet? Supposedly there is still some last minute changes being made( battery, etc) Maybe verizon doesn't have them yet which is why no launch.
OP updated with 21st w/o release rumor: Verizon Roadmap Shows Galaxy Nexus Available Online Only 11/21, New XOOM 2 on 11/30? – Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog
Also: I deleted the video on this page, because it was messing up the page formatting. No offense meant.
Call it a hunch, but I think we already have the phones sitting in warehouses here in the states just collecting dust while VZN is figuring how to maximize sales of the Razr and Rezound
Look at it this way... the more we wait for the release of this phone, the more famouser and biggerer our thread gets?
lol I am calm and it has nothing to do with comprehension. This just seems too over the top, even for Verizon. Web only pre-orders I can believe, but a web only device at launch just doesn't fit. Have they ever even done that on a top tier device?
I got to pee mommy are we there yet.
No - hold it. Or use the cup from the huge drink you insisted on.
Im not sure if they ever did it. I mean they also never did preorders earlier than a week in advance yet they took preorders for the razr the 27th with a nov 11 launch, and launched the rezound on the 14th which goes away from their thursday launch schedule. They said they are releasing another phone a week for the rest of the year so maybe that is why they are doing what they do.
Or doing it to build more hype to sell more? Maybe push it back so they can get more stock so everyone who wants one can get one? Don't want another inc fiasco.
I think they will avoid that type of fiasco again at all reasonable costs.
Is it even possible to build more hype for this phone?
This is logical. And very Verizon-like.
Again, very logical.
Sure - Verizon could actually advertise it.
Touche, but I don't think they are allowed to per Google.
In my experience, higher demand by limited stock creates more buzz for a product than anything. That's why we see every holiday season the most sought after items are limited in stock. Not because the manufacturer didn't see the hype, but because they knew there'd be more buzz if people had a hard time getting it.
In no way do i want to be negative about things but THIS picture, seen it a couple of times now, really gets to me.
The one phone with the largest screen appears to have the smallest screen! Who knows, maybe the fruit company made this?
On the bright side, we're still ahead of the 24th release date rumors.
