    I'm sure that like other people on the forum, each day that goes by without a word from Verizon, the more and more skeptical I get of a 12/8 release.

    I personally really really hope it releases on 12/8 but I just really hope Verizon says something.

    What I want to ask then is that, at what point do we decide that a 12/8 launch is not happening? The 6th? The 8th?

    At what date does the 8th go from a real possibility to only a dream?

    The one about inventory rolling in? I agree, that's a very good sign. I was actually just curious about when I should start preparing myself that the 8th isn't going to happen.

    (I know I'm going to wait until the 8th on the off chance it will still happen, but I'm just curious what date without an announcement will be a sign that Verizon probably isn't going to release this phone on the 8th)

    I think my original post wasn't clear enough. I honestly believe that right now the 8th has the highest chance of being the release date. I just meant that on the 6th if Verizon is still quiet, then I'm going to go start considering the 15th a serious possibility. I was just curious what everyone else's date was to stop taking the 8th seriously.

    Here is my theory. The guy I talked to was all hot on the GN....about 3 weeks ago. Best thing he had ever heard about. (He works at the phone booth at Costco) He also said that they had to sell all the Razrs before the GN came. ??? So now he has changed his tune and thinks the Razr might be better physically, especially when it gets ICS in January. What do you think of this? Is it just a ploy to sell the razr.... There was also another sales guy there and a rep from Verizon. They both agreed whole-heartedly I really do hate to be duped..

    That is what happened with the droid 3. It was available for preorder and they did not announce it until the next day after it had already been available on their site for order the night before.

    Based on his posting habits, he won't believe the phone is coming until the CEO of Verizon delivers one to his home.

    Yes, it is a play to sell the RAZR. It might have nicer/more durable build materials (metal, kevlar, etc) but it is vastly inferior in terms of screen and "openness." It's only a qHD screen, runs blur, has a locked bootloader, and will always have the dedicated softkeys. Moreover, updates will have to run through Moto and then Verizon and the dev community won't do much with it. Even after ICS comes to it (which could be 6+ months from now), it's going to be an inferior device.

    Oh, okay. That's basically what I was looking for. I wanted to know if Verizon will announce pre-release and how early that announcement will be. From your info though, looks like there could be no announcement, and it'll just be there. Thanks!

    Depends on how much they want to put into a device. While this device is big for us... on the whole, it won't be. Nexus devices haven't sold well in the past, and won't in the future until both carriers and google/manufacturer push the device hard. Is it a spec beast? No, but its still impressive, and a great device all around.
