    If you take a look at AC's recent post (http://www.androidcentral.com/verizo...er-17#comments) you'll see that LTE just went up in 22 cities with more cities to get it coming November 17th. If you'll note that today is Thursday and Nov. 17th is Thursday and that Verizon usually releases phones on Thursday, then you might believe like I do that the Nov. 17th is the day for it to be released.

    Why? Because why would Verizon want to release a brand new 4G LTE device a week or two before they open up LTE in a bunch of new markets when they could wait that week or two and release the Galaxy Nexus alongside the LTE activation's. That way more customers would be able to access LTE right away. These are just my thoughts on the whole thing.

    I say it still comes out the 10th because LTE is covering over half the country already. Why wait??

    "Early November" would seem to point to the first half of the month.

    Playing devils advocate:

    1. Do you really think laypeople know that LTE isnt nationwide yet? If its in a phone they can use it, right?
    2. Thinking too hard maybe? A week or two early would give the device to reviewers and early adopters (thats us!) so laypeople would know it exists (and destroys worlds...)


    Who knows, though? cant say your argument doesnt make some sense

    VZW has been bringing new LTE areas online regularly. It makes absolutely no sense that they would release new phones to coincide with new LTE areas going live. They haven't done it so far with any other phones, why would they do it now?

    I for one say that until we see a press release, announcement, email, or anything else official from Verizon then the phone isn't ever coming out(on Verizon). If you look at it this way, then you can't possibly be disappointed if/when the phone is pushed back to next year.

    Got my Bionic Thursday 9/8, discovered 4G LTE was working the following Monday morning...PRIOR to the announcement it was to begin in my area Thursday 9/15.

    I agree with racedog,and I see these announcements regularly on twitter.

    Yea, which would mean either the 3rd or the 10th. The 17th would fall under mid-November IMO.

    i for more than one say that following this logic, while rather logical in and of itself, destroys any hope that we as consumers in today's economy need to have (as a whole) to keep from destroying it.

    Verizon Wireless, and many MANY other companies rely on viral marketing to make money on the services and announcements they provide us, whether it be official or otherwise. If you follow the "out of sight, out of mind" mentality, that's your choice, but do so knowing that you may not be helping those of us who are infinitely ecstatic that VZW might finally be getting the Nexus love we were promised nearly 18 months ago.

    I can agree that its worthless to be thrashing leak after leak around like its the holy grail of the mobile world - but i think its absurd to say that since there has not been an official announcement yet, VZW is not getting the gnex. I feel it's more appropriate to say that the VZW variant has yet to be officially announced...
