Verizon Galaxy Nexus May Not Launch Until December 15

By  |  3 Comments

While the speculated launch date for the Verizon 4G LTE edition of the Galaxy Nexus came and gone without the smartphone being released, we’re now hearing that the device may land on Verizon’s network starting on December 15, or two days after the December 13 launch date that we had reported earlier. The new mid-month release date comes via SlashGear, which is reporting that multiple sources are telling the site that the device will land no later or sooner than the 15th.

Though Verizon has been shipping the phones to official retail channels, the carrier has not given official permission to any retailer to begin selling the phone. However, over the weekend, several lucky Android hopefuls were able to purchase a Galaxy Nexus from stores.

The device has been the subject of anticipation and controversy in the U.S. First, the device will be the first Nexus product for Verizon and when it launches it will make Verizon the first and only carrier to offer the latest Nexus phone. Second, the issues of NFC has been a contention in the community.

    Strange, haven’t seen any leaked shots of documents showing Dec 15th date.  Last week they were flying all over the place.  I’m not believing Dec 15th until Verizon says so which I don’t think they will as its almost Dec 13th and Verizon is very quiet still.  It sounds like Google and Verizon might be locked in a legal battle right now and who knows when that will be settled.

    So tired of all of this. I was originally waiting for the Nexus. I’ve been eligible for an upgrade since October, however I’ve patiently waiting for the newest and greatest.  Now I’m over with the delays and have decided to move to Boost Mobile. My contract ends on 1/6/2012 . Goodbye Verizon and your indecisiveness!
