For a year and half now I've been waiting for EXACTLY this phone (waterproof, front stereo speakers, fairly thin) and they end up yanking it almost on the day I could have bought it. SON OF A...uh...GUN!
My old Galaxy Nexus (anybody remember 4 years ago when THAT was the benchmark smart phone?) is getting mighty long in the tooth. Several times a day things get hung up (most likely due to Android version updates being stopped over a year ago). But I struggle through, hoping that THIS week the z4v will FINALLY make it out the door.
But nooooooo..... They hold it out in my face, then yank it away. Siiiiiiigh........
I feel your pain ... My Galaxy S4 has a shattered screen and a charging port that has to have the cable in JUST right to get a charge. I was about to buy the Z3V back in July but then they announced the z4v and I decided I could wait. Now I just want to know if I'm waiting in vain.
Well that is promising.. I mean the phone is obviously around the stores and ready to go... Must be something with the devices that they are having to look into... Possibly unlocked bootloader is the rumor.
I just got off the phone with customer service. It has been pushed back again. Until...they won't say.
The irony is that you can preorder a z5 at some store in London today but you have
to wait for a Z4v from Verizon.
This is hardly official confirmation, so take out with a grain of salt. http://www.mybigfatgayagenda.com/post/128358972901/motorola-and-sony-updates
Tl;dr z3v is getting updated to 5.0 or 5.1 in October, z4v comes out then as well, z5 coming a couple months after that. Apparently, there will be a trade up special for z4v owners to upgrade to the z5
