Verizon Confirms Galaxy Nexus Exclusive Deal

galaxy nexus exclusive

I’d say that pretty much confirms that rumor. According to Verizon’s own website, the Galaxy Nexus will indeed be exclusive to them for a least a little while. “Exclusive” meaning, the exclusive carrier here in the states of course. Folks on T-Mobile, looks like it could be a bit before you get an HSPA version.

Cheers TheDrizzle!

    Maybe If this was a touchwiz less galaxy s2 or hercules I’d jump ship but it’s not and  there’s no use bitchin.  I’d be much more inclined to get the Rezound or RAZR with the hope of a future upgrade or stay with Att and get the htc Holiday.  Adieu ICS till next year

  • Smillz2003

    Even though I’m happy verion is getting it, exclusivity is bull. Verizon doesn’t deserve it.

    Can we confirm the bloatware?

  • Dominick DeVito

    I’m sick of hearing how ‘slow’ the chipGPU are and how ‘small’ the 5MP are in the camera. Some people just don’t get it. Nexus phones aren’t made to be the best in spec, they’re made to be an EXAMPLE for other OEMs to manufacture upcoming phones for the next year. I think the clear example in this year’s Nexus will be the higher resolution screen and how developers can adjustcreate new apps in that resolution (and for tablets).

    They chose the TI OMAP 4460 as an example – yes, Samsung’s SoC’s are better, etc but aren’t something other OEms can follow as an example.

    If you don’t like the specs on paper then don’t buy it. wait for the 1st 2012 phone, I’m sure the ‘specs’ will be better.

  • Dominick DeVito

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I always sign up for updates from VZW and never get anything back. I’m thinking the ‘sign-up’ emails are used to count interested buyers to give them an estimate of how many they are going to sell.

    Just a guess (*wink wink*)

    It’s about damn time Verizon gets an exclusive.

    Well maybe the “Galaxy Nexus” is exclusive, but what about if its called “Nexus Prime” on other carriers? They might still get it but it wont be called exactly the same thing, so Verizon can technically say the Galaxy Nexus is exclusive to them.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ab-Gar/538974072 Ab Gar

      Its Galaxy Nexus bro.. prime was just a code name for the device while under development.

      • Dominick DeVito

        I’m going to guess the other (GSM) carriers will be getting the GSIII early or mid 2012.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ab-Gar/538974072 Ab Gar

          i think every carrier will get the GS3 across the board.. 
          verizon’s exclucivity on the nexus is only temporary. it’ll take about a month for it to hit other carers.

    Calm down everyone, it won’t be exclusive forever.

    so how long did it take the droid bionic to launch after verizon posted the sign up for email info thing on their website????………… I think i remember it taking a long time. I just hope its not the same situation here

    • Anonymous

      The bionic also had a ton of issues and was supposed to launch in march or april, so you can’t really judge anything by that.

    Any day now I should be getting an email from Verizon alerting me to the release date of the Thunderbolt.

    • Joseph Moreno

      Ok seriously I’ve seen all your comments on disqus supported sites, and what is up with you and the 5 mpx cam, and the fact the phone is only 1.2 GHZ? You seem like you think every new phone you want to get should be the best on paper.

    • Olesweski

      Yup I’m going to have to wait as well, but being the a-hole that I am in such situations, rather than say “hey everyone enjoy that phone for you lucky few who are getting it”, I’m MUCH rather just say “hey everyone I hope this phone completely effing blows and I’ll laugh as you plaster the internet with your complaints and buyer’s remorse!”  No seriously, that’s my opinion at this point.  LOL.

    They want to sell a few Motorolas first, so they plan to keep the Nexus a bit low key – is my guess.

  • bigrob60

    Apparently I signed up 3 times to be informed of the nexus. I guess I’ll go w/ that b/c they only sent me 1 email about the razor and 3 about the Nexus in the last 15 minuets.

  • http://twitter.com/Dadzillasaurus Robert he

    Probably just exclusively on the name, camera and clock speed. I would be a little surprised if verizon customers didn’t get screwed by a higher speced nex being released to other carriers.

    • Joseph Moreno

      I’d be very surprised considering the first two nexus’ didnt do that except for technically the NS4G, and if your thinking that just because its samsung that is gonna happen, remember Google is basically in control of hardware.

  • Anonymous

    This will probably be the most advertising Verizon is going to do with this phone.  Verizon seems to have hitched their horse to the Razr and will probably push that phone hard.  They will have an exclusive on this phone, but not for long.  The Nexus will probably be pushed to the back of their stores in favor of the 4S and Razr.  If the Nexus would have released right after the Bionic, I bet Verizon would have been all in but the reports of Google and Verizon having talk breakdowns will probably turn this phone into what happened with the Nexus One.  The dev community will know about it but the general public will be turned away for more “high name” phones like the Droid line and the Moto products.

    • Anonymous

      I think you’re right.  All that bloatware on the Razr is more money for Verizon, so that will be the phone to push.

      The G-nex will do better internationally, I’m sure.

        : Very negative views.. although I’m sure you guys have extremely valid points. I would hate to have Big Red become that disrespectful though.

        Perhaps that was a false report then…but it does seem weird that the exclusivity seems to only be about 6 days before some international versions are released.  Unless it is still going to be exclusive to VZW in the US for a while.  Still think the exclusive thing is dumb though, especially in this case.  The Droid naming is VZW only, and not all those phones are sold elsewhere so if people want the phones, they have to change carriers.  But why be exclusive on a phone that will eventually release elsewhere.  Most consumers will just wait if they know its coming and don’t want to change carriers…..or worse, move on to something else.

        • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

          I would say probably a month and then it will go to other carriers….exclusivity only meansvbin the US

    So does this make up for the lack of the Galaxy S II on Verizon for everybody?

  • iphone_is_king_of_all_phones

    Sad thing is, this phone will not generate as much sales as the iphone 4s. If you watched the announcement of thiis phone in hong kong, hardly anyone clapped from excitement like the iphone announcements. Iphone is still king as a single phone. Sure android as a whole is beating iOS but when it comes to per phone comparison, iphone reigns supreme. Long live apple.

      Troolllllll……… Yes there were some claps about things that were actually cool.  The ifans clap at everyone because they are sheep.  They have no clue but if Apple says it…..it must be amazing…..  Stop trolling these sites and go back where you came from.

        Lol…this is a funny comment. OK…all those people are just sheep that are dumb. You have facts to prove that? Yeah, i didn’t think so. Tell yourself whatever makes you feel better. Can’t argue with the truth though. Which single android phone outdid a single iPhone? But nice try though.

        • icu

          lol this kid got owned when I showed him that the Nokia 5230 doubled the iphone in sales, and now he is relegated to asking for a single android device.  Go back to your grid of icons, if you can even see them on that crappy 3.5″ screen.  Truth hurts…

          • iphone_is_king_of_all_phones

            Was the Nokia 5230 an Android phone?  nope…sure wasn’t.  My comment was always in the context of iOS phone vs. Android OS phone. It isn’t a comparison with the iphone with all landline, plug-into-the-wall phones either.

          • icu

            You:  “Prove me wrong…which single phone has sold more than a single iPhone?”

            1. Nokia 5230, 150 million sold
            2. Apple iPhone 4, 47 million sold

            I know you Apple folk aren’t the brightest people, but the higher the number, the more phones were sold.  In case you’re lost,  150 mil > 47 mil.

          It is rather funny that the only thing that you have in response to anyone’s post is that fact that Android cannot produce a single phone that outsells a single iphone. The truth is how does this make iphone a king of all phones? In what way is the iphone better than Android? … But nice try though.

          • iphone_is_king_of_all_phones

            Come on James…It’s not about me making a subjective opinion about what feature makes the phone better.  the numbers don’t lie.  any one single iphone outdoes any one single android phone.

          Ok.  So you seriously believe that apple invented the touch screen….or swipe to unlock….or the candybar style phone…..or playing mp3s on a mobile device….or notifications???  If you believe any of this you perpetuate this.  Go stand in like for the next phone that come out that is pearl metallic white that is identical to every other phone apple releases.

          You do understand why this happens right?  Apple makes one….1….one phone.  Android has roughly 5 phones of similar spec out at any one time, which gives people more choices.  So since android is out selling iOS devices, if you add up the sales of the 5 phones it is way higher then your precious singular phone stat.  Sounds like you are trying to bend the truth in your favor….not going to work on this site.  Go back to your cult sites and praise your so-called deity…..

          Seriously, you are going to get burryed on this site.  The i*hone is one phone.  Android is an operating system which is outselling iOS devices at a minimum 2 to 1.  If Samsung continues with phone releases that have good hardware and are upgraded quickly, it won’t be long before they start outselling the i*hone.  Apple had a head start on Android so yes, we are still playing catch up in singular device selling but the fact remains that iOS devices in total cannot compete with all the Android devices.  Go back and listen to your overpriced itunes apps and songs….

        • James Adam

          The truth is that the Android community is super excited for a Nexus on Verizon. For that reason the Galaxy Nexus will take a long, long time to become forgotten. Just because a phone outsells another does not mean it is in any way better. Truth is leave DROID LIFE alone. Go to some Apple site where your contribution is appreciated. 

          • iphone_is_king_of_all_phones

            Oh, I know you guys are super excited. I am too. That is a killer phone with a killer operating system but obviously as a phone, it won’t have the mass appeal as the iPhone. That’s all I’m stating. Because the iPhone is in higher demand than a single android phone.

            But if you just want an android pow-wow and be a simple android fanboy instead of an actual free thinker…well, I’ll be happy to leave your cave. But I will welcome you when you decide to get out and be a part of reality instead of a dream world.

            No it’s not about the exclusivity of the site. iphone users are welcome to read up on the competition. It is the way you came onto the site and instigated an argument in a Fanboyish manner.

            never undermined your happiness, my friend. just saying that iphone outsells any single android phone.  Actually…I also want a Galaxy Nexus.  I don’t even own a single iphone.  I hate iphones because you can’t do all the cool things like you can with an Android phone.  Shocking admission…i know.  but as far as sales go…pound for pound…iphone is still king.

            how is what you’re saying even remotely relevant? 
            there isnt one android device. there are thousands. 
            if there was only 1 android device, like theres only one iphone. 
            then, you could compare.. but what you’re doing is like comparing apples to ice cream sandwiches.

            Good point Brian. Walmart is the number one retailer in the US but I think there are very few people out there that would say they provide the best customer experience. Most would probably say they are near the bottom. Iphone might have sold the most but the user experience will have nothing on the Galaxy Nexus.

          • iphone_is_king_of_all_phones

            Um…yeah…and that user experience will translate to higher sales for the Galaxy Nexus vs an iPhone.

            In regards to operating system…you betcha.

            kinda funny nobody brought up this point ios is only on 1 phone while android runs on many i truly believe if android was like apple and came out with 1 phone per year they would outsell your little thing you call a phone

        • Christephor

          you might be right but thats the glory of android. Options to do whatever you like i love the picture with the iphone and android 3 years apart iphone os looks the exact same and the android os looks completly different. Another great thing about the android os is we can have the exact same phone but it could look completly different. I love the freedom android brings to my phone. I’ll admit the iphone has always been one hell of a phone but i want a phone that i can do whatever i want with and android lets me do this so you can take you iphone and stick it up your you know what

      Could you please help a brother out and tell me why the hell you come hang out in a Droid forum? You must have quite a sad, unfulfilling life since you come here to bash us. You don’t see us heading to your iphone forums to troll away. Now, take your jackhole remarks with you and get the hell out of here.

      How is this sad? The point of the Nexus is to provide developers a baseline for the android experience. It’s not about sales. The fact that it’s a flagship model is ice cream on the sandwich. And frankly, unless you work for apple, or are a shareholder, the sales of the i*hone shouldn’t matter to you either.

      The reason this phone is so important to the community is because it is completely unlocked and free from restrictions – Google’s, VZW’s, or Samsung’s. This is a device for the people to do with what they want. Those who purchase this phone will love it because it will be worth every penny.. no strings attached. The way ALL devices should be.

      Come back when apple allows that, and then we’ll talk. Until then, refrain from your silly sales comparisons.. one phone against many is a pointless argument. Android is about CHOICE. And we wouldn’t want it any other way.

      I, for one, am grateful for Apple fanboys, if for no other reason that I believe that competition is good for us, the consumer. 

      The fact that the iPhone continues to sell so well is motivation – for Google, Samsung, Motorola, HTC, etc. And these companies being motivated to deliver quality products is good for us as consumers. 

      In fact, I would go so far as to argue that the stranglehold that Apple has on its market is the reason its customers got the iPhone4S, as opposed to t he iPhone5 this fall. Why introduce something revolutionary when you can make just as much money by iterating? No competition = little incentive.

      Couple that with a mostly ignorant consumer base, and you’ve got a highly successful model for sales, even if the rest of your platform is… well, less desirable to the informed.

          The custom ROMS on my OG kept me going. I’m not going to lie, there were some rough times. But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Now hopefully Verizon doesn’t kick me in the shins when I get to the end.

      Couldn’t be worse news.  Original, and truly the most devoted Google fans – the Nexus One owners of course – get screwed on this, as we we’re all still stuck in our T-Mo contracts.  Anyways I hope you enjoy your tiered data, as I’d much rather wait and keep my grandfathered unlimited data plan.

      This is just like the Nexus one and the S, both were not available for all carrier and they didn’t lunch at the same time, so no problem, Verizon probably paid a lot of money for this.

        I actually think there’s a lot to be said for owning a popular device with a large user base.  We had that with the OG Droid, and I always got the sense that developers worked hard to make sure apps worked well on that phone because there were so many of them out there.  So I’m with TheDrizzle. . . apart from wanting as many people as possible to have the vanilla Android experience, I also selfishly want quality support from 3rd parties!
