    Whats really anoying is that Nexus was Announced on Oct-18.A month has passed and we dont even have an actual release date. Razr and Rezound announced well after nexus and Verizon is already selling them. Verizon passed on Samsung galaxy SII while other networks sell it and making us wait and wait for a good phone while they keep on selling bloatware goodies. If sprint was atleast a little bit better on reception I would switch in a heart beat.

    Sure thing. We have an agreement with an inventory company where we order our phones from. We don't get them from Verizon directly. (dont worry, we get our phones from the best inventory company in the business and the phones are generally flawless and always new) obviously if we can't get the phones from them then they're not coming. The week of the 28th is news that we got from them, presumably. We have always gotten inventory for big name releases days earlier than release date (iphone4s, razr, fascinate, og Droid etc)

    I've talked to peeps in Verizon, including some of the higher up ones. They told me the 18th when I talked to them. Something seems to have changed from the time I've talked to them and now.

    This is all on VZW. My take on it is they wanted to give the RAZR and Rezound enough shelf time before launching the Nexus.

    There are no corporate VZW here. The VZW next to firehouse subs us a wireless zone.

    I'm telling you right now that this isn't a fake.

    Www.myawireless.com

    Check that website for the store locator. You'll find it.

    Its no shock that they did this. When i worked at an AT&T retailer, we would take pre-orders on phones even if corporate wasn't.
