Who's to say it has bugs? Verizon's just sitting on it because they have other new phones (full of profitable bloatware) to sell first.

Exactly. It is unfortunate for us, but c'mon, it's understandable. That, and it having the sammich. Just have to wait a bit more. ;)

I think you are right.its a dumb strategy since phones (specially androids) get outdated by the min that by the time they actually release them, the new one is already announced -_-

And that's fine if they want to implement that business strategy, but they could still give us a damn release date. I mean, we're halfway through the month. So it's either coming out within the next two weeks OR it's going to be delayed. Bah. I only care so much because my Droid 1 is on some serious life support. My phone is basically like Chev Chelios right now. It needs to run at a good clock speed and get charged up often. Very often. I could probably buy a new battery, but the GN is supposed to be out this month.

East side of middle school where kiddies need simple toys to ease into the world of technology. Or east side of old folks home, I heard they are getting big time into "smart"phones nowadays.

Hey......they gotta wait until its old news and out of date before they release it. All the over seas carries have to get it first. I guess they have gotten a little better with releases but in the not to recent past Verizon was always late to the game on releases. But I am with everyone else.....RELEASE THE PHONE!!!

Yeh all the international carriers are GSM so thats why they get it first plus most people are buying the phone at retail so Samsung makes more money.

Lets see RAZR was released on 11/11 and Rezound on 11/14 which means were not going to see a realease date till 11/28. The reason why is that people who bought either phone will be outside of the 14 day return policy.

On a side note why is tt that you can remove or hide the bloatware on the RAZR but not on other
Android phones?

I was wondering the same thing. But at least it's a step in the right direction.

Very true but you would that think Verizon would have learned there lesson about adding and removing things that consumers dont want or need.
