    I had heard a Dec. 8 release date, but I'm questioning that now. We should have already seen a pre-order date if it was true. Maybe a Dec. 8 pre-order date?

    I really don't get why this was posted...

    So some guy on the internet "thinks" the Nexus will release this week. Ok? No proof, just more nonsensical speculation.

    Sent using common sense.

    Galaxy Nexus is releasing this week, basically all confirmed across sources. Shipments received, employees getting trained, available on display in NYC, Bestbuy system, Cellbrite etc etc. Yes, it's this week.

    I wouldn't hang your hat on that info. My running bet is towards the 14th.

    And remember how many times there was confirmed info and release information on the Thunderbolt before it finally came out.

    I think you'd agree the Tbolt was a bit different.

    We're already seeing people receive shipments, multiple stores receiving viewing models ect...

    Not saying it will be this week, but if I were a betting man, I would say it's out by Friday.

    Exactly. I'm not holding my breath for release this week.

    Hope you're right. Just sayin'. And that Thunderbolt debacle wasn't that different. ;)

    Honestly, I'm nervous because of the constant setbacks and adjustments. That doesn't leave me with a warm, fuzzy feeling. I'm afraid there will be issues. Like more than you would usually expect with a first release phone on a new OS. I hope I'm wrong. Just these constant adjustments don't feel good.

    Issue wise, I'm guessing:

    1) LTE battery life
    2) LTE connectivity

    Volume issue should be fixed already.

    I think those two would be very safe bets to match my concerns. LTE is still getting bugs worked out, and that I won't attribute to the Nexus, that's across the LTE line. It's getting there, but still having some issues. And the battery life, I agree. That's a really big screen to power.
