Thats why people are freaking out. They are pushing the Rezound and RAZR real hard, and have yet to mention anything on the Nexus. Plus release dates for Verizon devices seem to get posted by big red themselves about 2 weeks before hand, and again, we haven't hear a peep out of them yet, and this phone is supposed to release the 17th? I am still not buying it. I say a statement released by them within the next 2 weeks delaying the release till December. Just my 2 cents.
