1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Update: Supposedly, they have pulled the demo model and no longer have it on display. If there are any New Yorkers who make it out to the store, give us a confirmation, please. :)

    For those Android fans that live in or near New York city, you can actually get your hands on and play with a Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone if you want to. The Samsung Experience store located at the Shops at Columbus Circle in NYC has a display of the phone that you can check out. Sadly, of course, they don't have any for sale yet. It doesn't have sim cards installed for VZW's network, but it is working on WiFi, so you can take it for a pseudo-spin.

    If you are one of our members that makes it over to see the phone, please sound off in the forums, so we can drool with envy! :hail:

    Kind of ironic that Samsung is making fun of iSheep with their latest Galaxy SII commercials, but they're creating the same hype. And it's not EVEN FOR SALE, just a demo model. :blink:

    I wasn't in the Android game until shortly after the Nexus S release. How did the other carriers handle the release of the G1 / N1 / Nexus S? How fast from rumor to fruition?

    N1 was released and it was only available online, if I am not mistaken, Nexus S and Nexus S 4g are both contract phones so you can get them at the discount price. All signs point to the G-Nex being a contract phone as well so it will be available just like any other phone, when it finally releases which should be "soon".

    The android community around the time of the G1 was next to nothing. Previous Nesxuseses didn't have half the hype that the GNex does. Which I think is artificially created by Verizon. Why else would they remain so silent and let our imaginations run wild?
