    I mean it's a Thunderbolt with a dual-core. With the Razr being super thin and the Nexus being thin, with a huge screen and ICS, the Rezound really has nothing going for it. I love my Thunderbolt, but I'm tired of a bulky phone and the Rezound is just as thick as the Thunderbolt.
    I hear you but, I don't necessarily have to have the thinnest phone. That's one thing I wish they would stop harping on with these devices but, I suppose it's what the consumers want. Whenever I watch a reviewer compare the thinness of a phone to others, it slightly annoys me because, there are other things I want to know about the phone.

    Until technology advances more, it seems like when manufactures focus so much on how thin they make a device, they sacrifice other things.

    I never said that was the main thing I was concerned about. I mean if it was really that big of a deal to me then I would probably have gotten the Razr. The LTE Galaxy Nexus will probably be 9.5mm thick instead of the 8.9mm of the GSM version which is perfectly fine with me. My Thunderbolt is 14mm thick so anything under 12mm will seem thin to me.

    Mainly it's just the overall bulk of the phone. Everyone may complain about the cheapy feel of Samsung phones, but I don't need a phone to be built like a tank or as heavy as a brick. I never drop my phone, so I don't need to worry about it breaking. My wife on the other hand has dropped her Revolution at least once or twice a month since she got it and it still looks brand new.

    Looks like @VZWSupport is starting to reply back to tweets. Of course, they're just spouting off the standard... "We do not have a release date at this time. Sign up at..."

    Well of course you have no release date at this time, I'm asking for one!

    That is why I hate the idea of the whole "Galaxy nexus release date?' tweet. It's pointless and pasive. And that is the exact answer I would expect.

    We need to tweet something more like this: "Give us the GNex release date today - or else we #occupyvzwstores"

    Just signed up for the chat session. "Questions will be selected by the moderator" sounds a little iffy but maybe if we rain the question on them en mass, they will at least aknowledge it somehow or another.

    *Wishful thinking alert*
    Well even so it could still potentially accomplish something in effect. If they constantly keep seeing tweets asking for the release date, they could escalate it up to the higher ups who might throw us some sort of bone.

    Yeah, this whole thing is definitey wishful thinking, but I hoping they throw us a bone for it.

    I am in the process of writing an e-mail to the Executive VP right now. He will most likely delete it before reading it though. Oh well...

    Nothing changes if nothing changes.

    There have been two questions about the Nexus accepted so far and they're only about preordering/launch date information.

    Both answers have stated something along the lines of "There is no release date at this time."

    Woo.

    Also:

    "Will the Nexus be free from Motoblur??"

    That made my day a little bit brighter.


    Another addition:

    "Will the Galaxy Nexus be out by the end of November?"

    Keep checking verizonwireless.com. As soon as it is confirmed the information will be posted first on our website.


    So again, this chat is recognizing those who ask about the Nexus, but isn't providing any more information than we already knew. As expected.

    This is why this matter needs to not only be reached further up the chain of command, but we also need to continue to "invade" everything like we are. Disrupting the company's day-to-day operations may be the only thing that will make the execs take notice.

    I'm shocked that so far they actually aknowledged every question I've posed. Just not with an answer that tells me anything but that was to be expected of course.

    I've always noticed that VZW has been quick to respond to any and all questions thrown at them over the years. It's because they have a stock answer ready to spew at us. I am getting tired of it.

    Things are going to get interesting by tomorrow....

    Brings a mental image of tattooed nerds invading a VZW store with sleeping bags and mobile wi-fi hotspots...

    Me, I'm patient. Hell, I've been sitting on a loyalty discount for almost 4 months, I can wait a few more weeks...
