Best Buy issues correction notice over Nexus Prime, Galaxy Nexus conundrum
When Best Buy Mobile released its December Buyer’s guide, there was a bit of confusion due to the fact that one of the phones on the back cover was labeled “Samsung Nexus Prime.” Since the phone in question was unveiled in Hong Kong as the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, it seem that this was most likely some sort of mistake.

It turns out it was a mistake. Best Buy has issues a correction notice stating that the phone was incorrectly labeled as the Samsung Nexus Prime and the Samsung Nexus Prime 4G LTE. The correct name is the Galaxy Nexus by Samsung – 4G LTE. Best Buy also says that the device's status is “Coming Soon” and, therefore, is not currently available.

Best Buy also notes that the listing of the “RezoundT by LG” should have been written out as its official name of “HTC RezoundT – 4G LTE.” We are assuming the ‘T’ is in place of the trademark symbol.

As with any adverting kerfuffle, Best Buy goes on to apologize for any confusion or inconvenience, or in layman’s terms “whoops.”

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime 4G 16GB/32GB - We've had a good run, but I fear you're the cheerleader who teases you with her pom poms but never lets you shake them yourself. I hear Droid 4 calling my name and I know she'll let me poke her keys all day long. If the Googerola deal goes through maybe I'll be able to take the dive and plunge myself into the Nexus Razr someday...

Now we have learned what happens when you let verizon get a excluisive hand set: they will drag it out forever. Why? because they can. They dont really need the sales of the galaxy nexus, so they are waiting to launch it in december. IF Tmo would have gotten it, it would have launched already.

"IF Tmo would have gotten it, it would have launched already." And then TMo would have had the volume control bug to answer for. Verizon is wise to wait until the major bugs are worked out. You are correct that they're dragging it out because it suits their needs. Sadly, Google needs Verizon much more than Verizon needs the Nexus. Their lineup is so strong at this point, it'll just be one more stellar offering.

It would appear that the volume bug as not been sorted out yet. Props to VZW for waiting until a fix is in place before releasing the handset.
