What's there to say. Verizon has honestly been upsetting everybody with the release of this phone. It's a plain given. The fact that it's not looking good (rumor wise, of course) in the near future and rather a possible December launch has really been aggravating me. Along with the mindset that the GNex will be obsolete (yes, I know all phones are constantly becoming obsolete) to quad-core phones has been triggering my mind.
If there were another phone released, coming with Android 4.0 and a quad-core processor, what would you do? Stick it out? The GNex looks great, but it's at the point where I have just been waiting too long (I'm extremely impatient and I accept that). ALONG with all the ty things that are *rumored* to be happening to the VZW version of the Nexus, I think I've about decided to veto this phone. Hopefully I can get a top of the line quad core phone come January, I'll hold off with a crappy flip phone for now. </3

The Nexus still interests me because of what it is. All of the features (which are well known at this point, and not worth repeating) that are unique to a Nexus phone are the reason why I will continue to wait. The "delays" aren't really delays since Verizon never announced a release date, but their silence on the release of this phone is ridiculous to say the least.
That said, I don't think there will be another phone that can rival the Nexus, for what it is, for awhile. I'll wait on the quad-core phones until they figure out how to utilize all 4 cores and not shred battery life in the process. Simply put, I'm annoyed too, but I still believe this phone will be worth the wait.

no longer in general use; fallen into disuse:
of a discarded or outmoded type; out of date:
2. antiquated, ancient, old.
I don't think anyone will be chucking out their gnex's in january, nor will anyone call them 'ancient' I sure hope not, since i'm getting mine after Christmas.
also, it will be AT LEAST 6 months before ICS is the norm from other companies.
