    Yeah... Until VZW decides to start squeezing out people holding on to unlimited data plans I think I'm parked for a loooong while.

    Totally. I probably won't upgrade again until lte works like 3g does on my droids. That and 6hrs of screen on lte minimum.

    If it's the TI 5xxx, I'd be fine with that!

    No I'm pretty sure its still the only nexus on Verizon.

    Numbers mean nothing.

    It's a slick look, but it's a shame these phones seem to be getting more and more fragile and it ends-up wasted with need of a protective case.

    I'm sure the case makers can adapt. Might cost a little more, but would be mostly secured with a lip over the top and bottom and then perhaps flared a bit on the sides to avoid covering the screen.

    Reminds me of a question I've been wondering a bit for some time - the main risk is a flat screen landing flush and shattering, when simply a recessed screen (i.e. some rubberized or protective edge around the bezel) might eliminate much of the need for a case.

    IMO, this somewhat arbitrary competition to be the thinness and lightest really doesn't add much value to the consumer as we're stuck having to use often bulky, temperamental and/or ill-fitting cases. The Otterbox Defender case is great, but I'm constantly having to re-align or adjust the rubber body glove. I'd love not to need a case, but I drop my phone every once in a while.

    How much bigger would this really be vs. the Nexus? The Nexus was 4.65" but had more bezel. The Nexus naked was, IMO, bordering on too big. So I would be ok with this 4.8" monster EXCEPT, like the Nexus, once you put a case on it it's too big and bulky for the pocket.

    They'll probably shove a SnapDragon in it.

    No and NO. I wish it were a bigger screen. Guess I'll be getting the Samsung journal (note) once that comes to VZW
