The Negri Electronics guys who are giving away a free nexus after 3500 followers/re-tweets tweeted this in response to someone asking about the LTE version:

@Earthsiege It's not a dumb question. #Verizon #GalaxyNexus or #Prime should be in stock around 12/9.
Emphasis mine. I don't know if they are speaking to their anticipated date of receiving them or just basing that date off of the rumored 12/8 release date. Probably another case of rumor supporting another rumor, so take it FWIW.

Default My sincerest apologies

Nexus Junkie Family,

I'm very busy at work and haven't been up to date on this thread. Please accept my apologies as life is a bit busy at work. If I skip a few pages and leave out some thanks, please understand. These next two week, I have to squeeze 5 days of lessons in to 4 days. I'm swamped.

Please PM me with any pertinent updates. I'm trying to keep up, though.

Steven

IGN

Gaming reviews mostly, but they have a lot of stuff. Movie and TV reviews, cheat codes, etc.

I've never had a problem with them, but apparently they're not top-notch.

BTW, VZW is getting tons of FREE advertising, all over the net, for a phone with no release date. They gotta be loving that.

their quick too, it's almost always the first or second comment on a post...

Although, I doubt "too" many people go to VZW's FB page to check out new phones it really can't be good for their PR image.

It is when the advertisement is set to be released and since it doesn't say coming soon under the Nexus, than one could assume it is coming out that day or even before actually.....

Likewise, I was told this same thing by a Verizon store earlier this week, and she seemed pretty confident in that date as well. I think maybe they'll open it for pre-orders on 12/1, available 12/8? That would also get them through the BF weekend, but then maximize their air time to the GN.

Why exactly is that embarrassing? It's the 4S not the 4. You know, their brand new model?

iOS is a lot more lightweight than Android, so if an android phone can even match the speed and smoothness of the newest iOS device, that is far from embarrassing.

The power of Android with the speed and smoothness of iOS in one device? Yeah I'd be embarrassed to own that....

I think it's either a hoax or Best Buy jumped the gun in their advertising or was basing that flier off of a previous release date, which has since been pushed. There is much more evidence of a 12/8 release than 12/1 at this point. It's just more rumor mill stuff aimed at teasing us into believing we'll get it earlier than 12/8 :P

"Are you ready to tell me the release date?"

"You know I can't discuss that."

"OK, well, I agree with you - we'll just keep testing them right up until release."

CLICK!

Yeah, I know. Totally wrong and improbable and completely uninformed on my part.

After all, what corporation works like that?
I Love it!!!

Good laugh for the day! Thank you!

Nobody in the store (including the manager) could figure out when it ended, however, I'm supposed to call him back later today to see if he gets the answer.

While I was discussing the DD promo, the store manager actually told me that he heard a Dec. 1st date for the Nexus (surprisingly, I didn't even ask for the date, he brought it up). I asked him where he got his info, and he said he got the date from one of his Verizon sources yesterday. Interesting how that jives with the Dec 1st dates that just popped up within the last hour or so. Just thought I would share.

Yeah this date is gathering more steam guys, I was told the same thing by a store manager at my local store last night. He said he got the date earlier in the day, and that he was even allowed to finally take down names for unofficial preorders.....which he wasn't allowed to do before yesterday.....

As an old member of the gaming community I've been using IGN's site for over a decade and like many sites, you need to take what they say with a grain of salt. I think people mostly get on them for their reviews the last few years. One of those cases where they just follow the masses and don't always speak the truth...or overlook shortcomings because of what the people want to hear

...Sort of like the Apple community.

I kid, I kid, but not really.

Yeah, but it has to be an old rev, because it's not the Nexus Prime and we have known that for a while now (like almost a month). I don't put much stock in this flyer ever being released into the public as shown.

Hmm, that is interesting... I am going to have to go test out the unofficial pre-order thing tonight.

This is my personal opinion, I have no sources, no inside info, I'm just basing this off what I am reading.

If vzw wants to maximize their BF deals and the sales for the week that follows I say we should hear something between 12/1 and 12/8. If they want to maximize the sales of their existing lineup for the holiday season be prepared for it to drop between 12/26 and 12/31.

i know earlier i posted(along with some others) that story about modaco making a UI patch that would make a search button part of the software buttons along the bottom of the screen. actually, after doing a little more reading, found another story about it that says it will not only be a search button, but will be able to choose between different button layouts and buttons, such as menu(which i would like to have more than search personally)

On a more positive note about college football.... it appears the first Twitter hashtag has made it's way to a college football endzone. Marketing genius.

With so many people having them find out that they can return phones up until 1/15 why exactly would it matter when Verizon releases the Galaxy Nexus as long as it's before 1/15? I think we'll get an announcement Monday or Tuesday next week with pre-orders beginning shortly afterwards and in store availability being Dec 8. Just my two cents.

All the Info I was able to squeeze from my contact at Verizon..

"At this point, we still do not have a sale date on the Nexus. I am considering this product myself. I am happy to get in contact with you once I get more firm information and the ability to place preorders for this phone. What is your mobile number so I can also check the upgrade eligibility? When the time comes to place the order, I will probably have one of my reps contact you, I have moved in to management of a sales team now."

It is frustrating that we still don't know a concrete date yet, but I must say, taking the time to call me to apologize was a really nice gesture on Verizon's part.

I'm going to continue to hold out for the Nexus. The longer I have to wait, the more my anticipation and excitement builds.

Just to comment on the 'must come out before black friday for sales' angle that I think is mostly put to rest, I sell a consumer product through Amazon.com (won't spam it here, you can find it easily if you look). I was reviewing last year's sales around the holidays, and this is what I found. Small peak around Black Friday, much higher and broader peak around December 10th. I'm guessing Verizon must be targeting that larger peak, if they're targeting at all.

Think of how many dont know. I havent seen a commercial or a spot on the website about it. If it wasnt for the forum, i would never know. Its more of an internal thing. Remember 90% of customers are idiots
