I will be calling verizon tomorrow!

This phone will be so nice too have. Hopefully it changes the way people look at phones. Its not all about the GHz, Mp, the GPU, the OS. Its about how all of it can be married together in perfect harmony. This phone does it, through system and app Optimization. Its not amazing hardware wise, but when it comes together, this phone will be one to remember.

The only other phone to do this is the iPhone. The nexus is pretty much an open source iPhone. [but better ;) ]

Cool your jets there cowboy, remember these are just phones, no need to get you (mothers) panties in a bunch. IPhone is good Nexus is good etc, theres not one phone to rule them all. You can use your SGII or Iphone or whatever and I\'ll have my nexus, to each their own.

Until Verizon confirms, it is still a rumor, but supposedly the number has been verified by trusted sources.

Rumor I heard is the price is going to be somewhere around 199-249. Not sure about the pre-order.

pre order has no advantage when it comes to the price ;{

True, but it's priceless when you add the possibilty that w/ a preorder you may recieve the device sooner than the in store.release date. I know someone who got their Rezound shipped.to his door 72hrs before it landed in a store.

Did the Nexus kill your mom or something? Or do you just have some serious mental issues?

This isnt really the right article for this. I dont really understand why the US got the razr with the watered down features when asia received the razr with the 720 screen/upgraded camera etc. I would stick with my razr if that were the case but I would like a better screen/camera.

Hopefully these hit stores soon so I can go try one out.

I agree. If we got the asia RAZR edition I think a lot of people would jump all over it. The specs are almost equal to the nexus! If the RAZR had ICS it would be a no brainer! Just preference on battery removel but other than that!
But I really dont see these hitting the stores due to the nexus! But you never know they could come in white!

I hope Verizon's Black Friday Sales were terrible because they held back the release of this phone for so long.

On that note, I hope this is true, though I'd rather it just be surprised released tomorrow but that won't happen.

What about the Best Buy ad that was advertising the Nexus for $299?

16. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2614; Member since: 26 May 2011)


Best Buy ads are never as believable as leaks directly from carriers.

Best buy is a joke in my opinion. They are always over priced! I call them HACK'S!

on contract Best Buy usually has good deals. OFF contract is a completely different story. You could buy a phone off contract full retail price directly at the carrier like Verizon for example and then buy the same phone off contract, full retail price at Best Buy and spend over 200 dollars more.

lordy lordy, i hope its true. i cant take another mass geek meltdown... lol. hurry up n launch it VZW, so we can get firm details on when other carriers get it! :)

You can't honestly believe that just because Verizon launches that we'll actually get details on other carriers, do you?

33. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


not instantly,no. Im sure its part of VZW's exclusivity clause that they get so long before other carriers can announce... but we cant have the announcement until after VZW gets their exclusivity.. so its one step closer. That was my point. :)

The fact that only the CDMA-LTE version is listed at Google.com does not bode well for an imminent TMo/Sprint release. We also don\'t know how long the VZW exclusivity period is. Could be 1, 3, 6 months. Verizon will give Google all the exposure the Nexus needs for quite some time.

62. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


if its an exclusive, they wouldnt be able to show the GSM version in america just yet.. but yea, we have no idea how long this period may be. but the only way to get past it.. is to launch the darn thing. Hopefully its only a few weeks or so.

For those of us that remember. This reminds me of the thunderbolt and iphone 4 for verizon. Verizon never gave a release date or that the phone would ever be releaed to protect the iphone. It was about 14 days after the iphone launched and all of a sudden the launch day was announced, about 21 days after the iphone so all the people who bought the iphone could not turn it back in and get the thunderbolt. Just wait for the 14th day for returns to expire for the razr and rezound and you will get your release date. It is about maximizing profits. They have likely been planning this for a while. I bet we get the release date by next week, just in time for christmas. I dont know when the rezound and razr were released, but the nexus will be availble after the 14 day return policy has expired.

While I fully agree that I think the tbolt was probably held back to 'catch' the iPhone purchases, in this case Verizon has extended their return policy for the moment. Anyone purchasing a phone right now, can return it until 1/15/12 as long as they pay that $35 return fee.

60. pinkmamba (Posts: 3; Member since: 24 Jun 2010)


199 would undercut the raz and others- no way ! no can do! best case there will
be 2 versions, 16 gig for 199 and 32 gig for 299. Most liklly though there will be
just one 32 gig for 299.

Hey just wait 6 month and you will get it for $150, a year and you will get it for free!

but then you will want the quad core cortex 15 phones that will be available.
cutting edge is not free
