Samsung Galaxy Nexus might land on Verizon November 17

Samsung Galaxy Nexus might land on Verizon November 17
A "work in progress" doc from Verizon's system had been snapped, and it indicates that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus might be hitting the channels November 17, with in-store marketing commencing two days earlier.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus might land on Verizon November 17
Now the guy that sent it warns that this is still not final: "been told the document pictured is a work in progress that will be sent out next week to all retail stores/partners along with promotional materials such as posters and flyers", but let's hope that the wording of the launch memo is work in progress, not the date itself.

Makes perfect sense to us, considering worldwide (well, European) launch scheduled for the same date, so, bring it on, Verizon, don't wait for those crazy days of Black Friday! Between the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Motorola DROID RAZR and the HTC Rezound, Verizon's Android fans will be between the rock and the happy place this holiday season.

Good time to be with Verizon granted their expensive but its worth the premium for their strong coverage.

If the first NINE people you CLAIM to have asked were realiable and knowledgable, then why did you ask the tenth?

It turns out he was also the 10th dentist who didn't recommend Crest.

Verizon wil be the only carrier offering the Nexus subsidized, sure. That's not to say the GSM variant won't be available in the US on the 17th as well.

there is no truth to that kens,
sprint has already openly talked about having it in store and the GSM variant passed the FCC a long time ago. Hopefully it will be in all stores this year so we can see the android flagship vs the apple flagship in a real fight.

What do you mean? Please re-read my comment. I was saying it is possible the GSM variant will be available on the 17th as well.

Well, on the 17th Verizon will be the only carrier to subsidize. THAT's what I meant.

lol.. ok.

Hopefully they dont have a long exclucivity so sprint and Tmo can have it in their stores ASAP.. I cant imagine that they have more than a week or 2 for exclucive.

It wouldn't surprise me if Verizon gets 1-2 month exclusivity though, leaving the others to pick it up after the holiday rush.

I'm just excited that Verizon is getting it at all. I remember the original Nexus One release where a "coming soon to Verizon" quickly turned into Google's graceful bow-out at the last minute. Been waiting on some LTE goodness since the Thunderbolt but wasn't overly impressed w/any of them. the Prime is right up my alley

Where will you be buying an unlocked version in the US? You'll have to go international to get it unlocked

Google released an unlocked GSM Nexus S and Nexus one. You can buy them on amazon,

Between the RAZR, GALAXY Nexus and the Rezound, it is going to be some tough decisions to make for Android fans. I suspect it will be tough decisions for Android fans on AT&T and Sprint....

Agreed. I am waiting for all three to hit stores but for me it's really between the RAZR and Nexus. At this point the only thing I want to confirm is that i'm okay with the plastic feel of the Nexus and then it's getting the green light...

Yea I want to be able to pick up all 3 on the shelf on the same day and determine which one I want.

For me, It's between the HTC and the Nexus. If the Razr had the higher resolution screen, it would be in the running.. no battery removal bothers me too.

I'm leaning towards the Nexus for the bigger screen and really, the fact that it's pure google.. knowing the updates will hit my phone fast will be very very nice!

Yea this is what I'm thinking, bigger screen, removable battery and there is that assurance of receiving timely updates.

Better be true, I need a new phone and I want this.

So is it only coming with 16gb built in? Not a 32gb variant?

posted on 04 Nov 2011, 10:31

22. roldefol (Posts: 2999; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)


Seems to be the current standard. 16 GB built in, 16 GB card expandable to 32 GB for total of 48 GB.

The Nexus has no SD card slot.

Right, and neither did the Nexus S. Google is trying to move Android away from removable memory, but the other manufacturers haven't yet.

You what I don't underst is why the nexus only has a 5 megapixel camera when it should have an 8 it's seems to be less instead of more that is a draw back I think

26. sgogeta4 (Posts: 392; Member since: 02 Feb 2011)


Megapixel count is just marketing BS. If you have a good sensor and lens, even if you blow up a good 5MP, you won't notice a difference in quality vs. a mediocre 8MP shot.

This is the hardest decision I've had to make, and I've had to make a lot of tough decisions....I'm looking forward to actually seeing them all in person. Luckily I'll be able to handle the actual handsets. I'm greatful to work in a Verizon retailer. I'll get a close look at all of these phones before the general public. #STOKED

What's great is that the Razr, Nexus and Rezound will be on the shelf together in a couple of weeks so that we can all compare them side by side. None of this spacing things out by 14+ days so that anyone with buyer's remorse can't make an exchange.

Plus my upgrade isn't till January, if anyone comes in to exchange for any reason I'll know what, if any, issues they had with the new phones.

How the hell did VZW pull this off? Somebody is getting a big bonus for work of bringing in new key products for the holiday season, while us sprint customers are getting a BIG BONE for the holiday!

You got the iPhone 4S...what are you complaining about? Plus when the EVO was a big deal back then...y'all were on top of the world. Now it's someone else's turn to get some Android shine. Relax.
