    We're still firmly filing this one in the "unconfirmed" category, but the screen you see above supposedly is a "work in progress" of what's about to go out to Verizon stores. And it pretty much looks like we could be looking at a Nov. 17 availability (and Nov. 15 in-store marketing) for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which would bring Big Red in line with the rest of the world.
    We're going to remain a bit dubious until we get word from Verizon itself, and our source says it's "been told the document pictured is a work in progress that will be sent out next week to all retail stores/partners along with promotional materials such as posters and flyers." So we'll see if the document is the work in progress, or the date, or what. And it's always possible this is just a friend of a friend messing with people (hey, it happens). But it does make more sense than waiting past the Black Friday holiday, don't it?

    -------------------
    I'm certainly not complaining but somebody needs to get this right.

    Im still using my 2 year old OG. I have had several "newer" Droid phones and by far, I still prefer the OG Droid. You've just got to know how to care for it once it gets to be elderly. :)

    I wish I never asked for the D2G as a replacement phone... I never knew what a bootlaoder was for but I sure learned that it means NO FUN fast... I am going nuts over the tease of these new devices.

    I just have to say that I do still have the very first original Droid. I love it. Best phone I ever had. Believe you me, it has at times made me want to take it and throw it in the middle of the ocean at times or slam it against the concrete floor I walk on. But it always seems to right itself after numerous reboots all on its own. Especially when a girl said that she will call me to let me know she got home after a first date. Funny after I got her text, my Moto droid felt like acting up when I tried to return her text. It rebooted itself over and over and over and over again. I spared u all the extra over and over again.

    Then the sucker just started working again and all is well for days and days. This baby is fickle. It's old, outdated and tired. But I have to say, it has been loyal for the past two years. Especially the gps. It has been on point. Except for those times when it told me to make a u-turn in the middle of NYC. And some of those times when I didn't, I could swear it called me a "a little b-i-t-c-h".

    Anywho, I can't wait for the wonderful sounding G-Nex. Whether it comes out next week or next month, it is gonna rock. And not for nothing, if u went for any other of these awesome phones coming out, I don't think u can go wrong. I just want the G-Nex cause I like being able to erase apps without rooting. I liked that about Original Droid.

    I don't know if I made sense at all in this rant but I think for some miraculous reason, we will see this awesome phone drop on the 17th of this month. They did say that it will hit Europe on the 17th and US shortly there after. I'm hoping by shortly there after they mean a few hours later when the US of A turns into the 17th.
    I am also a bit tipsy, so excuse me if I have said enough.

    See the link in Post 6. I would be willing to bet that it would fix up whatever issues are causing you to reboot so often. I would do this ESPECIALLY if you haven't rooted or anything like that.

    I am rooted, but it was a while ago. I never updated the root to fix any problems. But its all good. G-Nex will hit us soon and am not interested in re-rooting. I love this phone and it has served me well. I will just wait for my next phone and knowing that I have put up with it for two years, I can wait another couple of weeks or until next month. I couldn't do any of the things I did with this phone that I hoped for with the LG Dare that I had before this. And that was a great phone. Especially the camera. That camera beat the droid by a mile. But my droid will stick around just in case something goes wrong with the G-Nex. That's what they should have called it. The Samsung G-Nex.

    I love Android. Thx Google for stepping up.
