Remember the Galaxy Nexus? How about the Verizon Exclusive Galaxy Nexus? After a month since its announcement and the rumors circulated, we are all still left without any details on how to get our hands on the hottest Android device and possibly the best new smartphone.
Although it is still unofficial, (considering Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone), Computer World has reason to believe that the Verizon branded LTE Galaxy Nexus is finally coming to Earth on December 8; with available pre-orders starting on November 29. They have used “micdawg” as a source:
Last week I sent an email to Verizon letting them know how disgusted I was with the way they have handled the launch of the galaxy nexus. After multiple emails back and forth…I got a text message saying “this is [name redacted] from Verizon wireless I will be calling in a couple minutes from a 678 area code number”.
When she called me I explained to her my issues. … She then said “Well Mr. Peak, I can assure you, it won’t be long. Preorders are set to start Tuesday (November 29th). And the phone will be released Dec. 8th.” She also then said she was going to get ahold of my local store to make sure they called me as soon as they got one in, and held one for me to ensure I got one in the first Wave. Which I thought sounded like ********. But low and behold, Saturday night around 6pm I got a call from the Verizon store 1 town over (she apparently didn’t Google the closest..) and they have my name down and are saving me a nexus, and will hold it for 2 days past release for me.
In addition to the great news about the release and pre-order, Verizon has all but confirmed the Galaxy Nexus price. However, they accidentally let this slip out of their offices.
