Verizon Galaxy Nexus Launching December 15th at Costco?
December 15th is currently the target date for the release of Verizon’s elusive Samsung Galaxy Nexus. We’ve heard that date from sources and others have been hearing the same thing. And guess what? More evidence supporting that date has mounted today as Engadget has acquired a pricing guide from Costco that lists the Galaxy Nexus release date on Verizon as December 15th.
Costco, of course, is not Verizon and that means that the device’s release date could be different here then at the carrier’s online or retail stores.
The retailer also lists the Galaxy Nexus has costing $290 which is actually $10 cheaper then the $299 price we heard about awhile back.
For the millionth time, this is by no means set in stone and it won’t be until Verizon decides that it’s time to make an official announcement. And if December 15th is actually the release date, we fully expect to hear from it tomorrow.
Keep those fingers crossed folks.
And in the meantime, check out these five things to do while you wait for the Galaxy Nexus to arrive.

I just got off the phone with Costco and asked the lady to confirm the rumored 12/15 release date. She said, “Don’t quote me, because I could get in trouble. Verizon is saying the 15th right now, but they are telling us they may change it to the 19th.” Her English wasn’t the greatest and my lunch break was almost over, so I didn’t get much else out of her.
Just goes to show you how worthless these “leaks” and rumors really are until Verizon confirms them. My fingers are crossed for Thursday, but I will not be surprised in the least if the GNex still isn’t available this week.

We will know tomorrow if in fact the phone comes out on the fifteenth or the nineteenth. I know for sure that the delay was not the LTE issue but A Verizon issue with Google Wallet. If the issue has been resolved, there will be an immediate update for the phone once you take it out of the box. There might still be an update resolving some bugs but the delay has been with Google Wallet. Verizon denies it but they wanna sell their own version of it which will be on the phone as well.

I’ve read that rumor as well. Guess what. It’s just like all the other rumors (i.e. not confirmed by Verizon). You are right though: we should find out tomorrow if a Dec. 15th launch will happen.
I am fully ready to see https://hasverizonreleasedthegalaxynex.us/ updated after tomorrow.
