Verizon GALAXY Nexus release date and price now official!

*This news has been updated* 


Well, faster than you can say Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon three times in a row, Big Red finally came out to announce the exciting news! With that people, we can all rest easy, as the long time coming Ice Cream Sandwich filled smartphone WILL be arriving tomorrow, December 15th, for the 2-year contract price of $299.99. Hit up the press release below for all the juicy details!


This is actually the phone that U.S. users have been waiting for so long, as it is a real powerhouse due to the high-end nature of the hardware, and the awesome new software that's found with it. And of course, since this is a new smartphone for Verizon, it'll understandably sport an LTE radio for unrivaled data speeds.


But whatever we say about the specs of this handset won't be enough, as it offers more and more goodies that make it seem better and better. So, we'd rather recommend that you simply hit up the press release below for all the juicy details, or check out our Galaxy Nexus Review, based on the international model. Oh, and of course, stay tuned for our Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review, which will come very, very soon!

So how does that mean 100% it WON'T launch tomorrow? A release could occurr after it goes on sale tomorrow. I m still holding out that it launches tomorrow.

I just called my local Verizon store in Houston. Yes, a full blown store. Asked what time they open tomorrow, 9am CST and asked if they will be selling the Nexus tomorrow and the answer was a FLAT OUT "YES".

The wait is almost over everyone.

I like how PhoneArena said that it means it wouldn't come out tomorrow, then hours later they change it to it is indeed coming out tomorrow. I guess they'll learn not to be so jumpy when it comes to release dates.

Actually the statement says they will make a press release when the phone is available, not before it's released. It very well could be released tomorrow and they could send out the press release after, to say it is ready for purchase.

I know you're probably being sarcastic, but the word is true, it is launching tomorrow, and also at best buy. :)

This is the first official statement from VZW if is not released this year then all the whining would be justified.

BS, the phone's been released for a month now at this point. Only known issue with the DEVICE (not Verizon's Network) was the volume issue which had to do with Edge. Verizon sucks. That's all. They're getting as much time before Christmas that they can with their bloated phones.

I can't recall VZW announcing it and giving a date, sure It's been ready for a while (according to you) I'm not talking about the device been ready or not, just about being launched

The way I see it, they must be implementing whatever "software fix" currently and will release them when they are all updated.

The thing is On stock at best buy, People actually bought it and seems fully baked. I think they are just trying to screw it up

This is stupid, they are trying to delay a product that's ready to be launched and on stock in the hopes of getting more people hooked into other devices(seems to be working) and pissing people off. simple VERIZON SHOULD NOT LAUNCH ANY OTHER NEXUS EVER and I hope Google sees that.

Delays Killed The Bionic wont they learn that delays can kill the Nexus Too?, The UK is already selling it it would probably on T-mobile and best buy already If I where at Google Ill have already done the FU and started selling and promoting the GSM version

Welcome to the world of Android. Samsung and Verizon need time to install all of the Verizon crapware on the ROM, disable Google wallet and make it unstable. As soon as it comes out, the wait for the patches to make the phone stable and usable will begin.

I say its coming tomoro but they're still too chicken sh*t to say a specific date after what happened with Bionic. Its like they don't want to be wrong and are tip-toe'ing until they're 150% sure the device is ready.

it gets old to receive news about Verizon' Nexus.
that could also be a hint there might be issues bihind it. I will not jump in when it's released untill at least a month latet.

I don't underrstand how this means anything... I work for an indirect Verizon retailor and we've been told the 15th and we still do not have an email saying otherwise.
