    Wait, there's a firm date of the 22nd on the 5X, but no firm date on the 6P? Makes the rumor of a few days after the 22nd seem more likely for the 6P than the rumor of them shipping within the next few days. You'd think they'd try to keep the ship dates fairly close.

    I loved my Nexus 5, I think this will be a hit for anyone wanting the smaller form factor. Now, ship me my Nexus 6P.

    I am highly considering switching to this phone, just so I can try out Project Fi.
