Samsung GALAXY Nexus appears on Fox Business; Samsung executive says pricing and launch up to Verizon
Samsung VP Nick DiCarlo made sure that everyone watching Fox Business Network knows that the launch date and pricing of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus is up to Verizon. Actually, when asked about the launch of the device, DiCarlo said, "Just a bit later this year" which certainly didn't answer the question. So when the talk turned to pricing, the executive said, "Well, hopefully Verizon will let us know very soon. It’s their phone, they know."

And while Verizon might know for sure, as hinted by DiCarlo's response, we can give you the latest information that we know. In terms of a launch date, a leaked document from Verizon's system indicates a November 17th launch for the phone, while a price tag of $299.99 with a two-year contract seems to be the consensus. It was also the price listed on a leaked version of Verizon's MAP that we showed you last month.

DiCarlo also skated around the question of whether or not the Samsung GALAXY Nexus will be a Verizon exclusive. After being asked if the device will be only on Big Red, the exec pointed out that the Samsung Galaxy S II is available from T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint, and with the GALAXY Nexus on Verizon, all four major U.S. carriers will have a Samsung Galaxy smartphone to sell.  From what we have seen of Nick DiCarlo, he might have a real future in politics.
