    Strictly with the screen being lit for. My tb knocks 1% off every 5 minutes and a couple of seconds. This is all subjective. What is his normal use vs yours or mine?

    I think to many people are obsessing over the soft keys...


    For those posting "chats" its nice to bug them :p (I'm evil).

    But in almost ALL cases CSR's know MUCH less then we do. They are the absolute bottom of the food chain for information. And for that one out of a 1000 that is friends with someone who does know something they are not going to risk their job by releasing it in a chat with a random customer...

    Agreed. As I've mentioned before, The Source has never said "This is the date", they have always said "This is what I've heard, and I haven't heard anything different." If the date changes, that doesn't impact my faith in The Source or Steven. It simply means that the date changed, and perhaps word didn't get to The Source quickly enough to let us know. I still feel better taking The Source's word than I do any of the faked documents or rumors from other sites.

    Can anyone comment on shipping times. If you order on a Friday, when would you expect to receive it? I ask b/c I'm going to be out of town and may have to ship it to where I'm going to be.

    There has to be a way to get the bar and dots to hide... if not I bet there will be a mod on XDA and hopefully merged into CM9

    So close! The pin is where I live and it's right on the edge of 4G coverage. I work at almost dead center bottom of the map right on the river...might could pick up some 4G signal here. The sad thing is it'll probably be 2 years before that area is extended to cover where I live.

    Some phones also have free overnight shipping. Let's hope the Gnex is one of them :D

    AMOLED uses much less power with a mostly-black screen vs. the LCD screen in the T-bolt, so while this is good news, it does get tempered a bit by this fact.

    I'm on Sprint... switching to VZW. So, I've nevered order through VZW. You get to choose which shipping option you want? Is like 2-day free, but have to pay more for overnight? Any idea of the options/prices?

    Overnight means if you order let's say by Friday at noon, you'll have it on Saturday?

    Long time lurker, but have decided to finally make my first post. Have been waiting for SGN for a while now. The anticipation is killing meI I am an ex Android user and now have an iPhone 4, but if all goes well will be selling it and getting my hands on Nexus. Unfortunately no upgrades for me, as I have already used mine, so I will have to pay a full retail. Hopefully it will be worth it :)

    Depends on stock levels, I "think" FedEx does Saturday deliveries but expect to pay a LOT. If it DOES release on Thursday, I would order it then and you should have it Friday.

    I "think" I paid like 15-20 dollars for overnight delivery by 9:30am... If I remember correctly.

    I will be waiting in line at the nearest VZW store on the morning of the 17th, unless the online ordering goes live on the 15th and I can get overnight shipping.

    Usually if you ask the rep nice enough, they'll waive the overnight fees. If not, it was around $15 the last time I had something overnighted from verizon.
