My local Verizon store has 2 units and are not saying exactly when they will be for sale, only soon. I got him to let me handle the phone though. Was pretty easy. I was very impressed, size was not a factor. Much thinner and lighter than I expected. The screen was amazing, but I was wondering about the"zero shutter lag camera" because I had heard reports of blurriness, etc. What good is an instant shutter if the picture sucks? So, I took about 15 pictures or so inside the store. None were blurry, and they looked excellent. At least on the unit I handled, the camera will not be an issue. Overall, handling the phone made me glad I have waited for the Nexus to drop. I am looking forward to getting it.
