    Well guys, it really is out there and in the wild! A lucky tester just put out this video of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus on Youtube. He says the boot up time is 28 seconds and only has two pre loaded Verizon Apps. I refuse to call them bloatware because I actually use them but hey, a rose by any other name. Anyways check out the video and be sure to clean the saliva off your keyboard when you're done watching the video.

    Cheers!

    I really want this phone, but it almost looks as if it has more lag than my thunderbolt..

    What makes this phone so special. I have never owned a Samsung smart phone. Looks nice though.

    Wish I could share the optimism. My thinking is we are just now seeing it in the wild, means "final?" testing? Who knows how long it will take to put it through their paces to be satisfied - my guess more than a few weeks. But there are a good number of people waiting for this and both VZW and Samsung should want those Q4 sales (although might mean less to VZW with most being upgrades, as they care about new subscribers although it would bump their LTE adoption).

    If that is now considered lag....I dont know what to say....lol. All I know is even tho I have a working Droid 1 and Droid X1 as back ups....they both might get replaced with more current phones. That says alot about these current phones.

    Don't get your hopes up man. I've been hoping for weeks and still, nothing has come to fruition.
