    We have it already posted in the big pre-sale thread if you want to close this one.

    I personally think this is deserving of it's own topic, especially since there is a topic similar to this in the news forum that the mods feel is perfectly acceptable.

    Sent using common sense.

    The only thing that can be delaying this right now is legalities. I have a feeling there is something going on with the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit holding this up.

    If the phones are stocked in stores then I can't imagine what else would be delaying it.

    Verizon, Google, and Samsung have royally screwed the pooch on this one. Not that I'm shocked. Their collective marketing ability is at the bottom of the ocean.

    Jobs is laughing somewhere.

    I have also heard rumblings that it could be over Google Wallet. Verizon signed something a while back that stated that they would not block competing apps on their phones and the way they are handling Google Wallet apparently voids that "peace treaty", if you will. They are back pedalling and saying that they aren't "blocking" the app, but it is different than other apps so they can't just let it work on their network. There is a post here on the forums about it I believe.

    I just got off the phone with the local Verizon store, and I was asking him about this phone. He told me they weren't allowed to say anything about it, but he did say "Off the record, if you come in Friday, you won't be disapointed."

    One thing I was wondering. Does anybody know if this phone will have Swype installed on it? I do allot of texting, and I'd really like to have that.
