    I just talked to my contact at a local Verizon store, and she showed me the email that says it will be released on the 15th. She says they have them in stock and she has had a chance to play with it. I asked if I could just hold it and see ICS but that was a no go.

    Anyway, take it for what it's worth. I know I'm just a guy on the internet, but I trust this woman and she said she was going to text me if anything changed.

    Yeah, my VZW store manager told me he was absolutely sure about the 9th too. Things change so don't lose sight of that possibility :/

    Regardless, WOOO if thats true, can't wait!

    I cant trust emails directly from verizon anymore. For me to believe there is an official release date, the nexus not only has to be paid for and in my hands, but it also has to be rooted with an unlocked bootloader and i must possess it for 3 months. At the three month point, if its rooted and has an unlocked bootloader, i will forgive verizon.

    If the delay was because of Google wallet it means that either Verizon caved and the GNex will include it or Google satisfied Verizon with some sort of a security upgrade for it as Verizon claimed that the GW did not meet their security standards.

    Either way considering the phones and accessories are in stores at Verizon and 3rd party retailers i would be surprised if it will take longer then the 15th.. 3rd party retailers wont be thrilled about the wasted shelf space by a product they are not allowed to sell for much longer.

    Even when Verizon releases this phone, I will still have a burning hatred for that company. The way they have handled this phone leaves a sour taste in my mouth. I think chances are pretty good that we'll never again see a Nexus phone on Verizon. And it's a shame too, cause I'm sure once you go Nexus you don't go back. Can't see myself using a crappy Motorola phone again bloated with their slimy UI skin.

    I also went yesterday to my corporate store and my buddy told me the 15th for sure. He also mentioned that it was supposed to come out yesterday but it didn't because of the LTE outage... So Thursday here I come!

    I won't believe it until I have the phone in hand. There have been far too many "basically confirmed" dates and the past debacle with the ninth and stores getting emails that said sell them then and then getting emails saying wait, I just don't believe a word of it anymore
