    Good point. Stalemate. :)

    It's because of the whole 'motorola is our whole world' thing they have going on. Notice how prominent it always is

    :( I was in a pretty good mood, I just stopped at the Verizon store to make sure I could purchase the phone if my husband (primary on the acct) wasn't there. He asked if it was the RAZR and I said the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and he knew what I was talking about. He told me he could hold a phone for me and had a list he wrote my name on and said he would call me. He seemed sure they were getting it. Now I come home and see that it may launch when I am going to be out of town. :mad:

    But I also though we determined that Costco is online only, too. You can order at the store, but they still ship it to you.

    It's also in the middle, where people's focal point is. There's a lot of thought and tells to that picture.

    That's what I thought the consensus was as well.

    The only plus to that pic is that after the middle your eyes generally go to the left since that is where a sentence would start

    Some marketing person just sized all the phones identical height, when in reality, they are different sizes.

    Look what days they announce releases Thursday at EU phones. Now take your 21/11 and a calendar check when it is Thursday, Ohhhh 24/11 now go check 10000 posts before on the date I said. Judas, NOT believers, father they don't know what they doing.

    I know it sucks waiting, I was waiting a week so the price would drop abut more from NOTE, from 599 to 529, it was a terrible week. GL & HF

    Just call, ask, call again, and again until they say yes. I don't think it would take too long if you are nice.

    Actually if you look you can see the nexus screen extends longer than the razr. They are lined up at the top but on the bottom the nexus screen is down a little lower.

    No, they just resized the pictures of the individual phones not to scale.

    Possibly. Mine is the 27th of December, but this web only b/s is making me wonder how much trouble it's going to be to try and get my upgrade. I mean, I guess I could web chat with a rep. This non-standard, no pre-order, web-only crap is ridiculous. I think they're trying their best to steer us towards the heavily marketed and bloated phones by making the GN acquisition process painful. Effing Verizon. :mad:

    The only time I like to go in reverse is when I'm stuck in a mud hole. This is not good.

    I'm not stressing over the release date. It will be out relatively soon, and the wait won't mean a thing when it's finally in my hands.

    My only question is carrier. Verizon is giving me some issues, so I may just buy it full price and unlocked, then use it on AT&T.

    At this point, before anyone goes into cardiac arrest, we may just want to wait until Verizon announces something officially. This back and forth is ridiculous.
