    First I just want to say, during my following of this forum about the Galaxy I've seen several people talk about this p3droid guy, so I started following him. I enjoyed it at first. Kept up with the device some of his antics was funny etc. Here the last few days he's took a big dive for me. Posting links to videos 'rick rollin' people and all that. It's like ... thanks but... no thanks. Anyway, off of that subject.

    I've been waiting for this phone to release since, well, all of you guys have lol. At this point it's almost like 'what's the point' anymore. I want the phone, can't get any LEGITIMATE news about it from any reliable source... so at this point, why not just wait for some of the better phones that they say will be launching early next year?

    I don't know, just my feelings right now are, they've made me kind lose my luster for the device. I was so jacked up and ready for it, now I'm just torn and thinking I'm still going to wait until next year. And here's the kicker, I'm still on the OG Droid, my charging port is broken, so every night I have to take my battery out and put it in one of those battery chargers, phone still runs good though. Just moved to Steel Droid 9.0.

    Even with having to do that, can't charge through charging port, can't move files etc through usb, I'm still thinking I'll wait....

    Sorry for the ramble... what's all of your feelings at this point?

    I was just like you. So excited and following every bit of news i could find in the nexus. Now I'm still interested but I don't get all upset when a new rumor pushing the potential relaxed day back comes out.

    I wouldn't say the lack of information has turned me away. Obviously it would be nice to hear something from Verizon, but honestly they don't ever give us information, we get rumors leaked from people on the inside. This release is no different, Verizon isn't saying anything because they don't want to officially delay the phone if they don't have to.

    I don't see myself waiting until next year to get a new phone, I'm using an OG as well, but what makes you think Verizon will get out the phones they're "supposed" to have out by early next year? It could be the same process all over again. So no, I'll be getting the Nexus the day it comes out, which looks like sometime between today and December 8th.

    I agree with you. And I think I'd be off the nexus bandwagon myself if it wasnt for the fact that its pure ICS. That's really the only thing that's keeping me wanting this phone regardless of all the frustration surrounding its release.

    My thoughts dead on. I have lost almost all excitement for this phone...especially after hearing some of our friends across the ponds complaints starting to trickle in. I'll hold on to my Bionic for a bit more.

    Why couldn't the SGS2 have just come out on Verizon? Still ticks me off...

    I'm pretty well over the phone...if the razr or resound? had unlocked bootloader I'd be all over it...I just need a new phone, my D1 is pretty well done. I'm at the point that as much as I want the Nexus, ICS and the bootloader might not be worth the problems they're having. Might be time to suck it up and just get a phone...

    Yes the wait and lack of confirmed details are frustrating, but that's the nature of following technology so closely, like many of us do on this forum.

    Something as big as this has high expectations, and those expectations dwindle especially when we don't get the product in our hands within a few weeks of announcement. This is when I compare it to Apple, Apple's reveals are usually only a week or two from a release day. Because of this and how no matter where we are, EVERYONE pays attention to Apple and expects other companies such as Google to follow. Apple knows how to push a product and they do it darn well, this is something no other company has been able to keep up with, Apple's marketing is top notch.

    Where Apple gave confirmed release date for the 4s, we're left in the dark with as many as 10 rumored release dates for the Nexus. It's frustrating to be kept in the dark, especially about something like this that could change the mobile industry (imho), and it's not fair to consumers. All we want is a confirmed release date so we can mark our calendars and have something to look forward to, but instead we find ourselves looking towards future dates with no reliability around it. I'm still going to wait, as this is the phone I want for sure, but I too am getting tired of getting the "run around".

    Latest rumor is Dec. 8, but I remember from the Engadget show that it would be available to us before the end of Nov. I hope this is right as it was the same guy who presented it at the unveil (don't know his name)
