I'm in the U.S. Went to the Verizon Store inside of a costco/bj's/sam's club like store (don't wanna give too much away). I had called yesterday and talked with the guy there so I knew they had received them. I swear to you, the guy at the counter pulled one out of his pocket and let me play with it. Not a tethered demo, not a fake one, a real, working GNex. It was AWESOME. He said, "You didn't see this" as I handed it to him.
Screen is beautiful, it feels HUGE in your hand, but coming from the OG Droid it's way lighter and thinner.
Now, I know, there may be some who call this a fake or flame me for appearing to troll, HOWEVER. I swear this is a 100% true story, just thought I'd share it with you guys.
