    I'm excited now. This morning, I was thinking.. hm.. do I really want it now? Now that it's official, I do.

    If anyone hears of any deals, please post them!
    I know you can do a best buy gift card someone posted, for $50 and put it towards the phone purchase... but if there are other deals, let's keep sharing!

    If you are a up for an upgrade, the price will be $169. Which is actually less than the $199 I paid for my Eris! Can't go wrong with that!

    Are you factoring in the cost of the extra charger(s) and/or portable power pack(s) ?

    If it's reduced this much before release, it'll be free sooner not later. I'll wait out the GSM / MAXX / ICS questions before deciding.

    Perspective instantiates reality.

    haha. funny funny. Actually, everyone in my house already has phones with USB Micro chargers.. and I have a USB charger in my car. All I will need is another cable. Ill just have to go to the IT dept at work.. they have hundreds of extra cables lying around.

    So.. no, I am not factoring in any extra costs. It comes with a charger and that's all ill need.


    I do hope it comes with an HDMI cable, though. I would love to see how it will work on my TV......

    Thanks for reminding me about the HDMI cable. I looked at one before but got sidetracked, I'm going to look for one online. Hopefully it gets here by Friday.

    If you get it from Best Buy and use their $50 gift card, do you still get your verizon loyalty discount??

    No. Best Buy doesn't do the loyalty discount. I checked when I was toying with getting a GNex. You have to buy from a corporate store, online, or certain resellers to get the $30.

    Planning on keeping my OG running till it dies or someone comes out with a slider that is worth getting.

    well if it had removable batteries you would need an extra charger to charge the battery you need the extra batteries so really the costs are the same. I doubt it will be free the droid 3 is still not free

    So...is there an official announcement from Verizon about the Droid 4 release date? How do I know I can trust BGR? I haven't seen anything on any official Verizon site.

    On a note about HDMI cables, don't overpay for them. There are sites where you can get dirt cheap HDMI cables, such as monoprice.com and pchcables.com, the latter being a company local to me that does online ordering.

    I also allready have 2 usb cables and a portable charger.

    By the time the rumored D4maxx comes better phones will be out. So moto would be stupid to releazse one. The SGIII should be out in Apr/May, and that will be a beast. But I'm not waiting that long.
