Google Nexus 6 reviews?

Is it just me or is there a distinct lack of Google Nexus 6 reviews? The phone is out in America is it not?

I read a few hands-on 'previews' where the authors alleged that they were not allowed to post full reviews of the Nexus 6 because Google placed an embargo on reviews until mid November.
Of course, people who somehow got their hands on the phone can still post their opus. But reviewers who got a review model from Google need to stick to the embargo.

I have in NO way checked if that embargo actually exists, but the fact that there are very few proper reviews of the Nexus 6 available online would suggest that to be true.

(that is not unheard of, of course. Software and hardware developers etc who get early models, beta versions of OSs etc... usually they cannot publish just whatever they want... A famous oldie in that regard is the Murtazin vs Nokia saga. He had, allegedly, a very early prototype Nokia N8 and decided to post all kinds of inaccurate nonsense about "the N8" - without emphasizing that his N8 was in no way the 'finished product'.... Nokia, allegedly, took all sorts of legal action against him...)
