    Only when Verizon is good and ready to do that... I am looking forward to them saying when it will be officially released. I'll be at their door on the first day to buy my own.
    Current: Moto X (2014) Pure Edition, ASUS ZenWatch, Pebble Steel, Chromecast
    Retired Device (in order): HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S4, Droid Razr Maxx, HTC Thunderbolt, HTC myTouch 4G, Blackberry's Bold, 8900 (Curve)

    It'll be soon. AT&T and T-Mobile both are getting it in early May, and Verizon will likely be the same

    Verizon is never first and is always last. Not to mention they will likely pawn the 16GB version off on us intially and then roll out a 32GB version. I have to question what Samsung is doing and why they don't hammer the carriers with offering the higher capacity devices. I would pay more and pre-order it.

    Even though the Thunderchicken was the first 4g on the scene, the only late phone I know of is the GS3 and never got the GS2 but they were the second carrier to get the Iphone but those dont count

    Every time there has been a major multi-carrier phone release Verizon has been historically last, GS1, GS3, GS4 (without much doubt) there are of course the standard re-branding of any HTC device so they can be special. Plus there is the typical delays for carrier certification, to which I can partially be happy they do but yet wonder how phones get out with so many bugs and issues.

    Verizon got the Note 2 one month after everyone else.

    So they got the Note 2 later, is that the only one?

    The S3 was delayed on all carriers due to supply issues. They all got the phone within a week or two of each other. Saying Verizon is always late with phone releases is bogus. Software on the other hand, that's a completely different story.

    Shall we look at Verizon's Android tablet releases as well compared to everyone else. The bottom line is Verizon gimps a devices features, delays the phone until all other carriers have theirs "due to their stringent testing" which is spot on to what they always say and finally they will not take the phone on and instead make a one off that is again gimped and late compared to others. The network IS the only thing they have going for them and lately its not that great. My LTE speeds in my market are a friggin joke. Try speeds in 5-6Mbps down and maybe .5-1.5Mbps up and I don't live in the outskirts of a metro market, this is in the heart of their LTE signal. Other markets fare better.

    On AT&T while the LTE is not as prevalent in my market I can at least fall back to their (4G HSDPA) which is their enhanced back haul 3G which is still faster than Verizons LTE and definitely faster than their 3G in my market.
