Verizon customers take over poll to demand Galaxy Nexus release date
posted by Michael H. / Nov 17, 2011, 9:04 AM
This is not the first time this has happened either. A few months ago, there was a poll which had intended to get feedback on Motorola devices that was taken over by users angry over the manufacturer's policy on locking bootloaders. Still, we're not sure it will actually push Verizon or Google to announce a proper release date, but at least some users can get their frustration out a bit.
Samsung GALAXY Nexus OS: Android 4.3, 4.2.2, 4.2.1, 4.2, 4.1.2, 4.1, 4.0.4, 4.0.1, 4.0 View Full specs
- Display 4.7" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 5 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor TI OMAP4460, Dual-core, 1200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB
- Battery 1750 mAh(8.33h 3G talk time)

Who's to say it has bugs? Verizon's just sitting on it because they have other new phones (full of profitable bloatware) to sell first.

And that's fine if they want to implement that business strategy, but they could still give us a damn release date. I mean, we're halfway through the month. So it's either coming out within the next two weeks OR it's going to be delayed. Bah. I only care so much because my Droid 1 is on some serious life support. My phone is basically like Chev Chelios right now. It needs to run at a good clock speed and get charged up often. Very often. I could probably buy a new battery, but the GN is supposed to be out this month.

Hey......they gotta wait until its old news and out of date before they release it. All the over seas carries have to get it first. I guess they have gotten a little better with releases but in the not to recent past Verizon was always late to the game on releases. But I am with everyone else.....RELEASE THE PHONE!!!

Lets see RAZR was released on 11/11 and Rezound on 11/14 which means were not going to see a realease date till 11/28. The reason why is that people who bought either phone will be outside of the 14 day return policy. On a side note why is tt that you can remove or hide the bloatware on the RAZR but not on other Android phones?

I was wondering the same thing. But at least it's a step in the right direction.
