    I'm in the U.S. Went to the Verizon Store inside of a costco/bj's/sam's club like store (don't wanna give too much away). I had called yesterday and talked with the guy there so I knew they had received them. I swear to you, the guy at the counter pulled one out of his pocket and let me play with it. Not a tethered demo, not a fake one, a real, working GNex. It was AWESOME. He said, "You didn't see this" as I handed it to him.

    Screen is beautiful, it feels HUGE in your hand, but coming from the OG Droid it's way lighter and thinner.

    Now, I know, there may be some who call this a fake or flame me for appearing to troll, HOWEVER. I swear this is a 100% true story, just thought I'd share it with you guys.

    I got a quick glimpse at a demo unit at my local VZW corporate store, one of the sales guys was checking it out. No working models though. They did confirm is was coming Friday so we'll see.

    No, but I'm at a VZW corp store, in the back room (employee area) and the store manager is in his or her office on the phone with his or her boss (regional president, not district manager). I know the RP by name (never met him or her, though) and heard the manager reference this person by their name directly.

    It sounds like they're discussing some LTE network-related issues. There's outages in some areas, but I don't know the details of their conversation - I can only hear the manager on the phone, not his or her boss.
