The Facebook page for the Mobile Generation Verizon Wireless retail location in Bloomington, Minnesota had some news posted about Big Red's version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus
. According to the post, the phone is to launch on December 15th. Of course, Verizon has not actually sent out any official launch date for the first Ice Cream Sandwich powered phone, but what the heck, perhaps someone at the Mobile Generation outlet accidentally revealed a company secret. After all, as we reported, Verizon is apparently telling store managers to expect the GALAXY Nexus to launch this Thursday.
And that would be exactly where our story ends except that the picture of the phone allegedly used by the store, shows the GSM model of the device
and of course Verizon handsets use CDMA technology.
So we will continue to wait for Big Red to make the announcement that everyone is waiting for on pins and needles. As for the third party reseller in Minnesota, we put in a couple of calls to see if we could get some kind of response from them, but so far we are still waiting a call back.
