Telegraph: Galaxy Nexus Launching in the U.S. After November 17

An article published by the UK’s Telegraph this morning has our inbox filling up with worried future Galaxy Nexus owners. Could the world’s first Ice Cream Sandwich device launch in Europe on November 17, but not in the U.S. for another couple of weeks? According to this article, that’s exactly what will happen. Here is the quote from the piece that has scared us all:

“At a recent Samsung European launch…the company confirmed that the European launch will precede the device going on sale in America and the rest of the world.”

Uh oh. Could it be? Last week, the internets were abuzz when Samsung announced in London that the device would most definitely be out on November 17 in Europe, but this is the first time we have seen “America” brought up. I would say that most of us were under the impression that the U.S. version would more than likely be out at that same time to make for one big Euro-American launch. Now, I wasn’t at the event to know if Samsung actually used the word “America” or not, so I would say that we shouldn’t freak out too much at this point and look at this as purely rumor. This is the first time we have seen any news publication use something other than that the phone would roll out in Europe and the “rest of the world thereafter.”

Verizon has told us that the phone will be out some time this year – whether or not that’s November 17 is still a mystery. You can all survive for another week or so, can’t you?

    Sounds like December. I sure an glad I upgraded my OG to this Bionic; been an awesome phone!

  • I’ve got my money in my drawer, Samsung give me something to spend it on before I get tired of waiting and go to Moto or HTC.

    Well if there isn’t a date by November 10th Droid RAZR here I come.  I don’t really need to buy a new phone, but I can and I am tired of waiting lol.

    This is getting f***ing old!  I’m tired of dealing with my automatic rebooting moto droid1 and i’ve been holding out for the nexus since moto totally screwed the bionic (and xoom)!  I might as well just go get a dam iphone 4s as i know what i’ll get. A phone that works, fits in my pocket, and is cheaper.    I might as well switch carriers while i’m at it as i’m SICK and TIRED of being toyed with by VZ!  Why is the largest carrier in the US the last to get the good phones? AT&T & Sprint carry the S2 and all VZ is doing is selling rebranded Moto phones!

    • Pennywise

      I don’t even slightly regret getting the Bionic; it’s a fantastic phone and getting tons of support from the dev community.  I don’t think your problem is with manufacturer’s or carriers…

  • Is VZW really that stupid to launch this thing on Black Friday?  This will not cause Black Friday traffic to their store.  All it will do is have techno geeks like us stopping it at most.  

  • ashy larry

    tthis has got to be the worst news ive heard all year. words cannot describe how pissed off i am right now. i gotta put up w my P.O.S., broken, dying droid 2 for at least another 3 weeks. this is causing a major inconvenience on my life

  • Sporty

    My opin: Moto has Verizon by the balls. Their Bionic sucked. Everyone was waiting for the GNex. Somehow Moto was able to slide another of their POS locked down tight phones in before the GNex comes out,putting the GNex back behind it and getting Razr in before it with Verizon specifying release dates while purposely keeping the GNex release date quiet. I think it’s because of Razr and Moto holding Verizons balls is why we have no GNex release date and why GNex is falling further and further back….

  • hatethanet

    Although it’s disappointing, with the “Available Later This Year” ads Verizon was running, I’m not surprised. 

  • streetkid

    I enjoy this news.  I ordered my iPhone 4s the other day.  Its half the price of these new phones, it will actually fit in my pocket, it runs smoother than any other phone out there, and.. its available now!  I’m out of town for the next week, when I get back it’ll be waiting for me on my kitchen table.

    I figure in 20 months when I’m due for an upgrade again, 4G phones might actually be at a reasonable uninflated price, and android might barely be on par for smoothness.

    I’ve had the OG Droid for 20 months, I love it, but its dying (bullshit that a phone can’t even last 2 years anymore), and I’m not going to pay $300 to get the same phone, but just be faster.  I’m looking forward to playing with something new and unfamiliar.

      I made the jump from thunder bolt to iPhone 4 a couple months ago and have no regrets. But must say I have my eye on a nexus

    •  I don’t necessarily disagree with you.  Unfortunately for me, I need to tether.  There is no way to do that with the iPhone 4S without jailbreaking it or paying the carrier for the service.  These are 2 things I won’t do.   I do not tether often.  However, when I do, there is a reason and need.

    • Not sure where you went to school, but $199 is not half of $299 – plus, the 32GB iPhone is the same price.  Also – why do you “enjoy” this news?  How would a potential delay in an unrelated phone benefit you in any way for your iPhone 4S purchase?

      Google’s best services (i.e., Google Voice) have always been US first. The UK has had to wait almost every time, sometimes for months or even a year.

      Don’t cry over a few weeks. Get over it.

      • babadush

        The sgs2 was more than a few weeks. Now our own companies are delaying our phones. America isn’t what it used to be. We are not the top market anymore. China and Asia are.

        • Pennywise

          Where were you raised? America has never, ever been the ‘top market’ for consumer electronics. And cell phones in particular?! 

          In fact, the U.S doesn’t get ANY of the state-of-the-art phones, such as those from NTT DoCoMo…

  • Pretty sure my Bionic can hold out til then :P. I do feel bad for those that still have an OG Droid that’s dying a slow painful death though. You guys have my sympathy, no BS.

    Someone probably quoted Verizon wrong when they said later this year. I can see it now:

    Verizon Rep: We will release the Galaxy Nexus on January 16, 2012. What do you mean that’s not later this year? It’s before the chinese new year isn’t it?

  • And thus continues the Galaxy Nexus/Verizon circle jerking….

    sigghhhhh   they’re gonna drag this out as long as possible, but they’ll have to release it some day…

    • Anonymous

      not really it could end up like the nexus one with there being a verizon one on the site and then a few days before launch it is gone and we get stuck with the inc.

  • My question is this: “A week after November 17th” is Thanksgiving in the US.  Is VZW really going to launch a major phone on a holiday weekend?  Have they ever launched a major phone on Thanksgiving?  Sadly, that probably means we won’t see this thing until December, rather than it launching earlier than 11/17.  I’m trying to hold out for this and not buy some crapware filled HTC Rezound.

  • John Mozelewski

    might get rezound now if it comes out first

  • Oh “F” no……..Why am I screwed on every phone I want?

  • Good god, will I ever get a new phone!? I was all for getting the Bionic, wait, wait, wait, okay it’s out and the screen sucks. Okay time for the HTC Vigor, wait, wait, wait, now named the Rezound it still doesn’t have a confirmed release date and new phones are on the horizon that make it look like crap. Okay Galaxy Nexus then, okay should be out in the next couple weeks, or NOT, wait, wait, wait.

    My Incredible is on it’s last leg here people!

    • Sporty

      Exactly how I feel except I’m still using the OG Droid which is so freaking lagged out I’m about to just bury the thing myself!! My OP….F Samsung and Verizon! They’ll put out a ‘exact’ date for the fricking pos Razr,but leave us hanging on the best phone coming the Gnex. I’m so done waiting…..it’s the Rezound for me now….and it BETTER be the fk out on the 10th!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Matt2783

    I, for one, never believed the GNex would be out on the 17th. This is VZW were talking about. When is they last time they got a flagship phone out in a reasonable amount of time? They’re perpetually behind the curve, and it won’t be any different this time around.

  • Rational Man

    I’m actually happy that it’s going to be taking longer for it to come out. If it was coming out this week I would have impulsively grabbed it, because I was in that buying frenzy. The longer it takes to come out, the less likely I am to buy something that I really don’t NEED, but rather WANT. 

    So take your time Verizon, the longer you delay, the more money I have in my pocket.

    No I can’t wait! I’m on a OGD that is getting slower by the day and I really don’t want to re-flash my ROM. Just release it already!! The thought of getting a Moto Rzr makes me want to puke, refuse to get an HTC. Might as well get an i**** (not gonna happen either).

    VZW is going to end up making my decision between the Razr and the Nexus for me it seems. With my OG dying and my lack of patience as well as a locked bootloader not a huge selling point for me, the Razr may win out with its availability next week.

  • Naibas9

    I realize now that since I’ve been eligible for an upgrade since June, and VZW waited too long on the bionic and now are waiting too long Nexus, that my FULL 2-years are up and I am free and clear to go to any carrier.

    • Exactly my situation.  I just wish they’d take my money already.

     I am seriously thinking about buying a used nexus S from ebay or something.. loading it up with ICS and satisfying my ICS itch. Of course, I’ll still be with Verizon and keep my TB until the Gnex is released.

    December release looks more and more realistic for everyone other than Verizon. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was one week before Christmas. If it was indeed November release for AT&T, they would’ve announced it already.

    I’ll still wait…need to see a drop test before throwing down for either the Nexus or RAZR. That “no Gorilla Glass” bit of info has me worried. I don’t consider the Rezound (considering the Thunderbolt debacle) a contender, but to each his/her own.

    • It will most likely be Dragontail glass.  It is not straight glass like the 4S.  There is no way to create a curved glass screen without some strong gorilla type glass.

    My OG droid has a dead screen, and my upgrade is ready.  I’m usually pretty patient, but this phone needs to launch now.  Not having a caller ID, End call button, etc sucks!

  • Robbie Gerling

    did anyone bother to question why this news was coming from a UK news site?  Why would a news site be privy to the limited exclusive launch of the VZW LTE version of the gnex?  Could it be that the EU is getting the i9250 before the US gets the i9250 model?  Remember that there is ample documentation on two markedly different handsets that will be launching for the Galaxy Nexus…  this news snippet could very well be only attributable to the GSM/HSPA variant and *not* the LTE model.  that is all

  • This would really suck balls.  I am waiting for this device, but for only so long.  There is very little difference than the Razr.  The bootloader will be unlocked and ROMs by the end of the year for it.  I may even have to look at the 4S.

  • Restless

    I think I have most people on here (droid owners anyway) beat when I sat that i’ve out-waited all of you for the past two years with my DROID ERIS that i’m still toting around waiting on this phone to “upgrade” to.

    i think we all have to realize that Verizon doesn’t care about the GNex as much as some of us do. They are obviously going to push the Droid Razr and HTC Rezound first and foremost. It’s actually pretty disappointing actually because there is a lot of great, attractive features on the GNex…

    Makes sense.

    They throw out a hastily done press release just to stop people from spamming their twitter/facebook. We have all sorts of info on RAZR / Rezound being released in the next week or two.

    I am betting that they are releasing this, at the minimum, 2 weeks + after those two phones drop. I know you all can guess why….

    • Nobody

      Yeah, greed. Pure and simple.

  • Jake

    A few of people at my workplace were ready for upgrades and I talked them into waiting for the the Galaxy Nexus. Well, they both got tired of waiting and not having a real date for availability or even pre-order. Guess that they pickd up…yep, the 4S. All three of them. They shouldn’t have an official unveiling of the device if they’re not also going to give precise dates and prices.

       as much as I love android.. I admire apple for their no-nonsense and serious approach toward their phones and launch. google sux at this.

        • Madcow06

          How can you say that a nexus device has little to do with Google? Sure the delay probably has something to do with Verizon or a problem with their version of the phone but this is a pure Google phone, they were involved in every aspect of it.

    I’m not amused!!!

  • No, I cannot survive another week or two – especially given it’s VZW.  “A week or two” in Verizon language means “You’ll get it when we want to give it to you, you’ll like it, and you’ll pay through the nose for it – and like that too!”  I’m thoroughly disappointed, disgusted and annoyed with Verizon’s obstinate ways when it comes to hardware.  If this doesn’t hit VZW before Thanksgiving I’m done with Verizon.  

  • This sounds like bs to me.  I’ve had a crack in my phone for a while nothing major but if verizon screws this up i’m going to use my insurance wait out my contract and go with one of the underdog carriers.

  • Chris

    My Droid is suffering.  It can barely do anything unless I’m in sight of a cell tower or connected to WiFi.  Something is up with the radio.  I miss and drop calls, texts show up late or never and take forever to send, sometimes requiring multiple retries.  I bought a Palm Pixi Plus, as the cheapest smartphone I could find off contract, to hold me over, and it freezes up once in a while and, when I pull the battery and put it back in, forgets all of my contacts, texts, and logins.

    November 10 is already too long to wait.

        How anyone can enjoy using iOS is beyond me.  iOS Apps yes, but the OS itself?  It’s so annoyingly incapable and… simple.  I don’t think it possible they could build hardware that would persuade me to use their software, not when their software makes me feel like I’m not getting anything for me money.

    Verizon is probably making us wait because they have deals in place with Moto and HTC to give the Razr and Rezound head starts. Or no one would buy those phones.

    Of course, even if they European launch and the US launch are the same

    Really doubt they’re going to let the launch date slip past black friday. My guess is that they’re talking about the GSM version of the phone, not the LTE. But that’s just idle speculation.

    • Dave

      I wouldn’t put it past Verizon to let it slip past any date. It’s Verizon…they have no discernible pattern in terms of releases.

      At least other carriers have been good about announcing their phones and then releasing them promptly afterward.

    • I really hope you’re right.

  • Dave

    So how about this…they do a direct fill in the coming weeks with a limited supply to appease early adopters which gives them the opportunity to market the Razr and Rezound to the general populace. Then they do a wider store release later in the month or early December.

    Oh how I wish that were so…

  • Rader023

    I have a Bionic and my NE2 discount (whatever that may be) starts on Jan 5.  So please have it by then Verizon.

  • Nsbjj

    Why would Verizon want the Galaxy Nexus to compete with the Droid RAZR?  The RAZR has all the Verizon bloatware on it and will make the company more money.  Verizon will release the RAZR on Nov. 10th and then wait 3 to 4 weeks before releasing the Galaxy Nexus.   Like it or not it’s a smart business move.  It will piss off a very small percentage of people (on this thread) but the vast majority will happily buy the RAZR.   It got me to switch to the RAZR.  I was holding out for the Galaxy Nexus but I am not going to wait until early-mid December to get it when I can get the RAZR in 10 days and it will be getting ICS a month after the Galaxy Nexus is launched. 

    • kep

      i’ll eat my shoe if the razr gets ICS that quick.  Yeah I saw the 6 weeks announcement but between MotoBlur and Verizon it just won’t happen.

    big red knows that they’ll sell more of the other 2 phones thats why this was pushed back…yes WE know this is the better device but the average consumer doesnt give a shit or probaly doesnt even know wtf a developer phone is…lets face it…VZW is about making money and the nexus just doesnt sell like htc or moto phones

    • Flatly wrong.  Samsung now outsells Apple in the cellular market.  According to NPR anyway.

      • Anonymous

        samsung yes but im talking about the nexus in particular…since technically this is googles phone..not samsungs

  • Booboolala2000

    At the same time, when pre sales are announced, i could buy the RAZR and take it back and exchange for a Nexus. I’m cool with the restocking fee. And if it costs Verizon money to resell that phone as used, even better.

    • Booboolala2000

      Or Rezound. Hmmm… So many toys.

  • APCBishop

    Folks get a grip already. It has never been stated the device was releasing in the States or VZW in Nov. It is all rumors that have been going around is all. And if you knew the inside skinny on the device in general you’d understand. At this point you should be happy VZW is even getting it seeing as a few backs it was on the brink of being cancelled, but lets give Google a hats off for throwing some muscle behind the scenes so that didn’t happen. 

    And so everyone knows we will be lucky to see if by Black Friday from what I’m being told still. The device still has NOT passed VZW testing so there is no chance in the world we will see it within the next 2 wks. Just relax tho its coming just a matter of when. And in all honesty we should be happy about it. The last thing we need is a device like this releasing with major bugs in it like it currently has.    

    • I bet the current bugs are less than most people’s OG Droid have.  From what I have heard, the device is ready, but I am just another random person on the internet.

    • Yea its been past testing bro….I think your just spittin BS….and you don’t announce a phone if it has not past your tests….when they announced it too, it should of been here within 2 weeks….you don’t just announce a phone then 2 months later release it…its not smart especially with technology

    ill share an unfounded rumor i heard from a higher up verizon rep who came to my to work to tell us about “the worlds best Android phone that nothing will beat for at least 6 months, its called the RAZR droid” said in a dismissive tone that the Galaxy Nexus will be out black friday and only on verizon in the US.

    obviously large bucket of salt should be taken with this as he there to hype the RAZR and was shocked when i asked about the Nexus, (a little upset when i said stock android was better and the 720P display was hands down better than qHD, his only retort was “ultra thin with kevlar and high resolution camera”)

  • Well, technically if they are releasing the G-Nex on Nov 17 in the UK and the US, it is still being released in the UK first.  Just Saying. 🙂

  • I’m not concerned. It seems they are assuming it won’t come the 17th because Samsung didn’t say for dates outside of Euorpe. Just that it would arrive later around the world. So don’t count the 17th. It could still happen and it could be Verizon and/or Google will tell the USA dates.

  • Christephor

    so they lied to us again because the 17th is not early november 

    • Who is they?  All Verizon has said is “Later this year”.

    Not too surprising given that Samsung’s Galaxy phones were much more widely available and used in Europe long before the US caught up…

  • Dooonnn’ttttt caaaarrrreeeee howwwww, I want it NOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW!!!!

  • Next thing you know we will here Verizon announce “Due to European demand the Nexus will arrive until early 2012” Then after that “We decided we are not going to launch since we have a better device a few short months away”. I will say again despite the official from Verizon “It is coming to our network”, I’ll believe when I see it. If it wasn’t for the complete lack of decent coverage in my area, I would have left them long ago.

  • If you buy a Razr or Rezound because of this delay then you let Verizon win.  I never lose.

      • Notsurprised

        true verizon has not said anything publicly regarding a solid release date.  however, everyone knows the phone is scheduled to come to verizon “this year” and we all know they release phones on thursdays.  there are only 9 days this phone will be released and they really can’t pick one and let us know?  it is poor customer relations.

        Keith, you aren’t seeing the big picture here. I’m not just talking about the G-Nex… I’m talking about delays for the Bionic, delays and trouble with the Thunderbolt, the 4G service going in and out (3g for that matter too). The fact that phones struggle to last 2 years, the length of time they require us to commit to a device (because I surely don’t have the income to buy off contract) How many OG droid owners are on their last leg waiting for the G-nex to come out? Frankly the tech world as a whole in some ways. THAT sir.. is what the h*ll I’m talking about 🙂

  • foreWard

    Imagine that, the 2 phones that VZW has loaded all of their crap on with launch on the 10th, then we will have to sit and wait for the phone they have no (ok, less…) control over….b.s….I have such a love/hate relationship with VZW.

    Verizon needs more time to lock the bootloader

  • Noooooooooooooo!! – darth vader

  • Dave

    I read that this morning and dismissed it. When it comes to Verizon’s release dates, only they truly know and it’s always subject to change.

    No way will it be released on Thanksgiving day (the 24th), so if this article were true then it would be released the day of Black Friday (the 25th), or early December. Has Verizon ever released a phone on Black Friday? I’d figure that day they would want to bring out lots of BOGO deals instead of releasing a new phone. After all, people are looking for cheap deals on that day especially.

    However, at this point, I think Verizon’s lineup is going to go down like this…Nov. 3rd through the 10th = Razr starts shipping to those who pre-order…Nov. 10th = Rezound and Razr available online and in stores…Nov. 17th Galaxy Nexus available in store and on-line.

    Worst case, the Nexus gets released on December 1st.

  • Anonymous

    My OG is having Mini Heart Attacks so hopefully the old fella can last a few more weeks, maybe I’ll reflash him with the newest CyanogenMod Nightly.  I have a strange feeling Verizon is underplaying this device on purpose because of the fact that it will be stock and unlockable.  Verizon is obviously against most phones being unlocked and they reap more revenue from phones that are locked in the form of tethering charges and other bloatware apps they charge for.  They want people to buy the RAZR and Rezound and I think they kind of fear a stock, unlockable Android phone on their precious market.  This is pure speculation but from what I have seen with Verizon there may be some truth to this.

    • Sporty

      This is why they’re hyping the Razr. What you said is true,though. They hate unlocked bootloaders but to keep ‘nice’ with Google,they’re selling the GNex,but putting it at the end of the line with no focus on it, no release date and no hype whatsoever. Funny how the Razr suddenly came out of nowhere and bypassed the Gnex which was in line before it,huh….

    • Jason

      Agreed, they really don’t want to have this phone and are stalling on it to frustrate us into getting the razr. It was working on me this morning when I read this story cause I have been up for my upgrade since august and my OG droid was in a hurt locker, wasn’t even using it really cause it pissed me off more than anything. I just flashed miui for it though and it has almost made it a new phone. I was using cm7 with alot of problems. You should try it and see if it helps. I still have a prob with the far right side of screen but it runs so much smoother now. Going to try and hold out for the gnex.

  • Anonymous

     Let’s look at the facts here..

    1. Nexus devices are sold a LOT MORE in the US than in UK.

    2. Google is an American company

    3. Nexus is their Flag ship device.

    4. Doesn’t matter if the parts are made in S. Korea or elsewhere.. the
    GNex is primarily an ICS carrier.. not a Samsung flagship (the SGSII was
    Samsung flagship).

    5. Google not being on top of Nexus release in US = EPIC FAIL. Period.

    • cardinal

      Well said…I will not wait.  Sure, it may be worth it as some say and it is the first w/ ICS but it won’t be the last.  And as we all know, “pumpkin pie” or whatever comes next is just around the corner.  Just disappointing and if Google and Samsung control the phone how is Verizon at fault?  Sure big red causes it’s share of problems but why would they not want to sell more phones and potentially more phone plans?

      Another failure by a manufacturer, i.e. Bonic, etc.  Why not release the phone worldwide on as many carriers as possible?  Never owned anything other than a Blackberry and really looking forward to my first true smartphone.

    Verizon is clearly controlling what happens in the US when it comes to the Galaxy Nexus. It’s a shame. I’m a little disappointed. Why can’t Best Buy, Amazon US just announce when they’ll have the unlocked version like Europe? There has to be some kind of reason for this.

    Honestly, I’ll be surprised (though, pleasantly so) if it the SGN is released in November.  It is only coming to Veri$on – no one else (for now) – so they have a lock on it.  They brought out the Bionic a few months back and now have the Razr recently.  I expect they’ll want to milk these for what they can get out of them before they bring out the SGN.

        The bloat, skins  and the Nexus will probably dramatically decrease the sales of all of Verizon’s non-Nexus phones.

        Although many of us Droid-Life readers want the Nexus and nothing but the nexus, I can see the average consumer liking the Razr more for it’s small form factor and durability. 

        The only reason the average consumer may want the Nexus more is if they care about having the latest and greatest Android operating system.  I think they should, of course, but that doesn’t mean consumers will. 

        That being said, I’m waiting for the G Nex cause I’m well informed and know that I’m willing to wait a little longer to get a Google sponsored phone which will have updates before anyone else.

      The Rezound is a fairly solid piece of phone. 720p screen, 1.5 dual core processor, 4g, HTC’s build quality, not to mention an SD CARD SLOT for cryin out loud. Sure G-NEX has ICS but HTC seems to update their phones regularly, so its only a matter of time. Im tired of being the rabbit chasing the carrot on a stick.

        Exactly.  By the end of next week, the first reviews of the Razr’ll be in and I’ll choose if I’m going to pick it up.  At this rate, by the time the Nexus comes to America, the Razr will already have ICS. :/

            True, although why should Verizon care?  In theory, each phone is $300 and they make the same amount regardless of which phone is bought.  Now, backroom deals and such may play a part I suppose…

            In a word, bloat.

            Verizon bought those phones. They want to get rid of the phones ASAP. If the Nexus is available during the bulk of RAZR/Rezound sales, then a lot of phones will either be returned (Verizon takes a hit for selling a used device/opened box, hence the $75 restocking fee) or not sell at all.

            Really, only the enthusiasts like us here on Droid Life/Android Central/Phandroid/etc truly know about the Galaxy Nexus. The average consumer does not and isn’t disappointed at all. What we should all do is take a chill pill and be ready to wait. Besides, the extra few weeks means more polish, ensuring that our Nexii work perfectly out of the box as of day 0.

      you actually believe those things when you see then. Those are almost meaningless 95% of the time. I’ve had info for yrs from friends who work at VZW and it is very very rare that a device releases when they original plan on it releasing. Heck go back to the original Droid it was over 3 months behind from when it was suppose to originally release. Everyone needs to take some of this rumor info with a grain of salt when it comes to release dates

    Guess they want to avoid those RAZR returns.

    I’ve been pumped for this phone for a few months now, another couple weeks won’t hurt. There’s more important things in life to actually be upset about.

      I suspect more people will be returning the GN than the Razr once they find out about Samsung’s build quality and poor radios.

        nexus devices have never sold that great and i highly doubt that this one will outsell the RAZR or the rezound…people remember and love the RAZR…most dont know what the hell a nexus is

          I’m not predicting mass returns, but I imagine every time they release a new phone withing the return period of another flagship phone they see returns.  Not a matter of “better” but people who desire what’s new.

        I’m no fan of Sammy, as a matter of fact never bought a phone from them and only am because of Nexus.  However I find it strange the most popular Android phones are made by them but somehow at the same time they are built the worst.  They outsell both HTC and especially Moto, but someone are total junk?  Just doesn’t quite add up.  That’s coming from a big fan of my DX and HTC phones in the past.

        EDIT: Plus my point was more about people wanting whats new, not that its better of worse.

    Everyone kept asking how does VRZ screw this up. This is how pushing this back to spread out the razr and rezound then the galaxy.

    • FYI, the correct abbreviation for Verizon is VZW

        Which is more pathetic, the fact you bothered to make this comment or that so far 8 people liked it?

      How do you know this is Verizon’s fault?

      • Anonymous

        More importantly, how do we know that the source’s “source” wasn’t just speaking of the HSPA version, and not the LTE version. We pretty much know Verizon is getting it first in the US at least. Clearly that could be the miscommunication.

      • Michael Potter

        It would be easy to assume it is Verizon’s fault because Samsung has already announced the Euro release date… With that being said, the phone is completed testing and is in production, Google’s ICS is finished and everything on the manufacturers side is running smoothly, so we are all to assume Verizon is throwing a hissy fit because they are being pressured to release a phone without a locked bootloader and with no bloatware to make them extra $$$.

    I’m still holding out hope for a pre-Thanksgiving purchase.  

  • Jose Lopez

    Well that means I have more time to save some $$. Now will I get my Bionics data issues fixed first or get the GNex, that is the question.

    • ShootAngelsFace77x

      You should have to keep your Bionic as punishment for your impatience. 

  • Lame.  That’s all I have to say.
