User Guide for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is up on Verizon's site

User Guide for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is up on Verizon's site
Everything seems to be on-track for the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Nexus to be released this Friday. It's now listed in Verizon's InfoManager Equipment Guide, which confirms that most all features will be carried over from the GSM model. This includes the large 4.65" Super AMOLED HD display, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash, 1080p video recording, and of course this 4G LTE smartphone will be running Google's new Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Internal memory will be at 32GB, not 16GB as was thought a few weeks ago.

For those of you who consume all things Galaxy Nexus, you can now take a look through the official User Guide that is up on the Verizon site. It doesn't go into great detail, but does cover the basics, such as using the camera and setting up wallpapers, and also has some information on beaming screen content through NFC and optimizing data usage to help prevent going over your data allotment.

Hopefully it won't be too much longer until Verizon officially announces the release date and pricing (which is expected to be $299 after rebate with contract).

Bah... first you make it thicker, then you tell me that I can't have Google Wallet, you add bloatware and to top it off you pop the price to $300. I might as well get the unlocked version.

It is probably likely it will be out by the end of this week. Every single piece of information that has come out this past week points to the 9th. Also, how is this an exclusive? I saw this on Phandroid earlier today. I'm not treading on PhoneArena, just the fact that they are saying this is an exclusive.

The first paragraph states ", which confirms that **most all** features will be carried over from the GSM model." Is it most, or is it all?

Yeah, I would've waited longer but I broke my Thunderbolt last week so either I pay ~$90 for an insurance replacement or $199-299 for the Nexus... in my opinion no point in replacing the Thunderbolt.

Replace the thunderbolt and get the nexus. Sell the thunderbolt or use it as a backup it's worth it I think

12/9 - just called Verizon to see if I was missing something and they said all info pulled from their system regarding the Nexus. They were not happy that I knew that the 12/9 release date and that I should not have been notified on 12/7 that 12/9 was the date...who knkows when it will be now, perhaps a software problem..
