    People are creating rumor threads like none other today. Might be a good idea to steer clear of them until tomorrow...it seems some stores are positive its dropping, some aren't. All we can do is wait and see. My guess is yes.

    I just finished calling seven VZW corporate stores here in Houston.

    5/7 told me the phone is coming out tomorrow. I got one of them to let me in on the off-contract pricing.
    This bad boy will be $649.99 off contract. They also allowed me to make an appointment for tomorrow to come get it

    This is crazy, called two stores (both corporate) in Chicago south burbs, one said no launch date or news, the other said they have a store wide meeting Friday morning, and that could be related to the Nexus launch, and took my name and number.

    Meh ... FWIW my company's corporate rep replied to my email today questioning tomorrow's rumored release stating that it is doubtful it will be released tomorrow because she can not see it in the system yet. Not sure what system she uses, but she stated that her system should allow her to make corporate orders the day before release so her customers get the device on release day.

    I called the Verizon 800 # to see if I could get hooked up with that ch4Ge discount or whatever that they were offering in the midwest. No luck applying it in NJ or any other promos for that matter. The rep was really nice. As I was hanging up I asked about the Nexus, told her I didn't want to go to the store for nothing tomorrow. She told me it wasn't in her system but she'd sign me up for a text alert when more info was available.

    The forum has been totally overrun with people creating duplicate threads. That's a good sign the release is almost here.

    Me too. I walked by my local Verizon Store on the way home from the eye doctors. I looked in and the manager came to get me and said that the phone was on the FED EX truck for delivery today and that he just got a call that gave him the OK to sell the phone on the 15th. He said I could come back and see it but that he couldn't sell it until the 15th.

    Told him I would come back on the 15th and then he told me that he would be there first thing in the morning. Also said he has ordered more than the usual number of phones because there are all ready people that want it.

    It must be close because the Verizon help web site has been updated with a virtual help application that shows you how to navigate the phone.

    So...we will see what tomorrow brings.

    So, I'm sitting here reading through every GN post and trying to stay positive about Thursday and my phone rings... It's one of the many Verizon stores I had left my name at.

    He says they just got word it is on for Thursday and he said he is holding one for me... I won't hold my breathe but first call I have every received back so far.

    What store? I called the Stockton Corp Store earlier and got the standard "no official release date" mantra. Not that I am doubting you.. but I might have to exchange my "Rent-a-Razr" at the store you are referring to if they are green lighting there.

    Glad to see that Big Red proved me wrong! Too bad I will have to wait an extra day to get mine. My company rep will place my order in the morning and it will be delivered to me on Friday.

    Man, I got to the store in NYC across from Grand Central 15 minutes before you and was 15th on line- took 2 hours to get... but what's 2 hours after 2 months? FINALLY GOT IT!!!

    my guess is that since they are eliminating the hard menu/home/back/search buttons, and incorporating them into the screen, they can add more screen size without noticeably changing the physical dimensions of the device.
    The Nexus 4 is as thin as my X minus the hump. Me like. Sorry for digging up the old post.
