    I am more interested on details from Google on these Google Edition devices and also to see how they royally screw up launch in typical fashion. *popcorn ready with pitch forks and torches*
    I joined this forum specifically to post this. A few minutes ago, I chatted with a Google Play rep regarding when the Google Editions will be available on the Play store. I inquired as to what time the devices will be made available for purchase and was advised to keep checking the Play store. When I asked if the phones were still on schedule to be released today, her response was that she is not allowed to discuss devices that are not yet available for sale. I can see that Google has a long way to go when it comes to customer service.

    Same story just a different device Nexus 7,Nexus 4, White Nexus 4....so on and so forth. I learned from the Nexus 7 launch and watching the Nexus 4 launch is either wait to buy or don't expect a smooth first buy launch....ever.

    Well no time was ever confirmed. If it launches at 12 PST, 3 EST and actually goes smoothly I will consider it a first. Right now with them only saying available on June 26 they have not butchered it yet.

    I got the same response. "Not sure what time. Recommend checking Google Play periodically". Seriously? That's bull****. Last night they recommended hitting refresh around midnight. WTF?

    Agreed. Just lousy customer service. I hope I never have a problem with the phone.

    I returned a n4 b.c of a faulty display and it took them 6 weeks to refund the money. That is unacceptable IMO

    It's absolutely ludicrous that they are being so secretive. Where's the harm in confirming whether or not the product will be available for purchase on the previously advertised release date? Google really has no business being in the retail industry.

    interestingly enough all of the sensors are still included.

    I wonder how they will be used.

    I don't see it either when I go on play store. Use the link on Engadget to get to the page.

    One of the footnotes says "MicroSD card only compatible with select third party applications. Not compatible with Google services." Does that mean you can't make the phone use the SD card for taking photos/video?

    Can someone confirm the S4 GE will work with T-mobile if your not in their LTE or farmed out areas?

    used that link and it worked. I was sure I was going to get the s4, but the early reviews already state the one is faster
