Some Best Buys selling Verizon Galaxy Nexus early
posted by Michael H. / Dec 11, 2011, 3:40 PM
Unfortunately, the two are pretty much the only ones to successfully purchase a Galaxy Nexus, so lends credence to the idea that they may have had some inside help. Still, the whole ordeal just continues to prove that Verizon and Google are making a mess of this launch, no matter what the excuses for the delays.

former bby emp here. Unless it was a GM or CSM/CEM whatever there called these days. They can get away with it; if there able to push weight. I was always told if the product has a HARD street date then they can never sell before the said date. But cmon with this phone how many street dates were given? Theres not even a pre-order system.......WTF lmao..............i gave up the week of black friday. I am a fan of quality service but VZ is not try to Cater to us fan because where not as loyal....And i mean loyal as in not allowing the Razr and Rezound to have the great sales numbers its been showing we should have just waited out, show disinterest and hound and cry for the nexus........just saying

wow verizon has really dropped the ball on this launch. They were hesitant to carry it because its a small niche product, so what did they do? Push it further and further back, not accept pre orders, and still have not announced a launch date, when the phone has been available for weeks now. Maybe its some weird desire to replicate the frustration/uncertainty of the 4s launch, who knows.

wow as much as I think the nexus is better than the iphone. At least Apple knows how to market their products at least Apple releases products to customers on time! And for those defending verizon saying verizon never gave a release date it doesnt matter! Google wants to compete with Apple as far as I am concern vwz is nothing but the middleman Google should have marketed this phone more efficiently. Samsung galaxy 2 was release back in early 2011 in Europe when they finally released it to the states Samsung had a whole event to announce the phone here in the states. Even if the phone does release this week Google should have had an official press release for the state release. What a joke this phone launch is. VWZ can careless they have the best network and when your cocky your cocky you dont care what anyone thinks as long as they got something others don't the best cell phone coverage.
