    Spring time. If the prototype leaks are to be believed, they look to be pushing it. Plus I don't see Google waiting too long to release a new product.

    The project seems to be stalled, but no formal notice that it is either dead or is still actively being developed. What I do know is that a very viable alternative was just released by Motorola in the Motorola Z and Z Force Droids. Check them out and I think you'll be pleased with their Mods concept that had been implemented very effectively.

    Release date was November 1st. At first Lenovo.com indicated a 4-5 WEEK shipping time frame. Now it is 4-5 DAYS. I just found it on the Lowe's website and you can get a $25 discount or a 6 month no interest plan if you use the Lowes credit card...

    The Lenovo site lists it as Temporarily Unavailable also. Another delay maybe?

    But some people actually did get their phones! So it doesn't seem like it is a release delay... Maybe they only expected people like contractors to be interested and, instead, were shocked that a lot more people than that were ordering the phone and they just didn't have the stock on hand? It really does seem like there is a disconnect in the manufacturer's perception and the reality of the desire of a decent amount of people in the USA who want large display phones!!!

    That's very possible.
