Samsung GALAXY Nexus launch kits hit Verizon

Samsung GALAXY Nexus launch kits hit Verizon
Now that a December 9th launch date for the Samsung GALAXY Nexus is beginning to come into focus, the shipping companies have been busy moving all things GALAXY Nexus from warehouse to individual stores. For example, one of our loyal readers sent us a picture of what he calls the Samsung GALAXY Nexus launch kit which he claims was received by his Verizon location today. You might note the Verizon logo in the lower left of the larger booklet.

Recently, we reported that Verizon third party resellers would be launching the Samsung GALAXY Nexus on December 9th. This has been confirmed by a tipster who works as a rep for a Verizon indirect reseller and was told today by theirVZW Account Manager that the phone will launch on December 9th.

So we tip our hat to our tipsters who are giving us the reports from the frontline, all of which suggest that on Friday, those who want the Samsung GALAXY Nexus will have the opportunity to pick it up.

Thanks again to our anonymous tipsters!

The gsm is only 16 gigs and no expandable memory. I want one,but that sucks. The user only gets 13 of that... I'm currently using 17 gigs on my 64 gig 4S

$600 is a bargain. Apple charges more for less features.

I think I need to find a support group I need help I find myself on this site like a crack head looking for a release date to some new phone or tablet coming out and the last time I was this excited about a phone when I got it was so disappointing the HTC Thunderbolt was a 4G LTE let down I hope this phone is as great as it looks because I need my fix :-) lol

Don't feel so bad your not alone, your kind of are in a support group here on phone arena. I do the same thing except about four or ten times a day. I hat the week ends with little updates. I have been calling Verizon everyday and stil have no new information.

It's OKAY guys/girls. Once the Nexus releases we won't have a need to come back here except to bash iPhone users who are so far behind in technology.

Just called Costco at Verizon. I know no one is going to take this with a grain of salt. But they said they would be getting the Galaxy Nexus on Friday.
