Twice. One at a movie pre screening before I had mine. Then last weekend at a concert.

They totally are. I saw an old friend recently and she has the Nexus One, and was checking out my phone because she wants to upgrade to the Galaxy Nexus.

Need to see her again..

I have seen none. Verizon Northern VA here. I usually don't go around showing off my phone so I would not notice it unless it was in the same company and probably inside as well.
When I bought mine in Reston VA, I mentioned to the guy that I had been waiting for it since last October - he said that they had sold all that they had in stock in every previous shipment (I waited about 2 weeks) and said that it was popular.
I have seen at least 2 dozen Razors though. (something about buy one phone get one free on Verizon), the numerous droids, and 10 million iphones.
I frequent UVA's campus about once every 6 weeks and see almost exlusively iphones, although I would expect their IT degree seekers are probably leaning more toward android at this point.
I have had 3 different people ask if my Galaxy Nexus was the "new iphone."
I have also never seen a Galaxy Note either.

I've seen a lot of them in the wild. A few of my friends have the Nexus, and I've counted 4 people in my math class with the phone and a few other people in some of my classes have it.

I've seen two Galaxy Nexii around campus and two Nexus S's running Ice Cream Sandwich. I have to fight the urge to go up to them and bump with their phones to pull off Android Beam. Something's telling me that I should keep fighting the urge though....

Android Beam aside, this is actually one thing I like/hate about the Galaxy Nexus: less people with it just makes it more unique. Part of me wants to be the few that has a phone this great, but the other part really wants others to experience what we do.

My workplace started offering Androids last year and the gnex became an option a couple months ago. Definitely seeing more gnex's in the wild lol
