    Thanks to our tipster, sbenson, we now know that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus SCH-515 has passed its U.S. FCC tests. Usually this is a signal that the phone will be hitting store shelves very soon. The filing also indicates it has a Verizon 4G LTE radio, which shouldn't be surprising. This is great news!

    I feel like a kid at Christmas - my Kindle Fire is supposed to arrive today, along with a LG Bluetooth headset, plus I'll be trading in my OG as soon as these babies hit the shelves (or, if I prefer feel of the Razr, I'll go that way).
    Only thing is, I also feel like the parent at Christmas - I've got to pay for all this stuff!:icon_ lala:

    If Google & Samsung don't get off their butts and learn how to do a product launch correctly (read: learn from Apple - they at least know how to market) they will lose customers. At least give us SOME information! The rumors are getting stale. Confirm SOMETHING!

    No kidding, release the thing already so I can put my greasy palms all over it and decide what phone to get. My OG has served me well but it's time to lay it down to rest and I've got money burning a hole in my pocket. Step up your marketing game a bit Google/Samsung/Verizon - I want to give you my MONEY already!

    Someone correct me here if I'm wrong, but I can't remember any of the the Nexus phones getting much advertisement. They kinda just popped up in stores.

    I haven't seen a single ad for the Rezound and yet they are sitting on the VZW counter. Only commercials I have seen are for the Razr.

    Good to see - I hope that they release this soon! Picked up a "rental" Razr and I am not digging it too much ...
