Add December 8 to the Galaxy Nexus Launch List (Updated)

galaxy nexus december 8

I’m not even going to say anything, aside from this referencing marketing materials and could mark the start of a campaign rather than a launch date. Quite the list of dates we have going for us now though.

Update: Another December 8 launch date picture has surfaced. It goes into a little more detail on that day potentially being the official day. 

Cheers ___ and Vladimir!

    Just so people know, the nexus pre-orders are open.

    I have already pre-ordered mine. I did it at my local Verizon wireless authorized retailer.

    The guy said he got the official email/memo about its release on monday (11/28) and was able to take pre-orders from that point on.

    He also said hes expecting them to arrive on the 6th or 7th (8th for non-preorders), so if you pre-order it, you may be able to get it a day or two sooner.

  • Dylan Blom

    Just when I go out of town the Galaxy Nexus could be released so when i am out of town it will be at my door. grr hope i can pre order and get it a day early

    over at sumsung.ca it is listed as user 16gb expandable up to 32 gb with a micro sd.

  • Brandon Sigg

    People need to calm down. No where on there does it say or mention the release of the phone. All that is on there is marketing materials which leads me to believe that beginning the week of the 8th, Verizon will begin a large marketing campaign for the phone. I think believe that it will be out the week of the 21st, before Friday of course to convince people to come in and buy the phone of Black Friday.

  • The first picture looks like it’s for marketing materials, and as such is not a confirmation of a launch date. And I have a feeling the is from an authorized retailer, which would only indicate that THEY would be launching on 12/08, leaving the 11/21 still an option for w/o or corporate stores. The reason for this is the wording on the red dinc2. They mention that the units would be shipped direct from HTC and not “our VZW DC”. This struck me as odd, as why would a corporate office have to refer to themselves as “our VZW DC”? I work for a large corporation myself, and none of our internal documents/emails ever make mention of “our [company name]” anything. It would make more sense if that was coming from an authorized retailer instead, especially as many of them cover multiple carriers. When I was younger I worked for a music store in which we had a lot of distributors from different manufacturers, and we’d constantly say “our Gibson dealer” or “our Marshall salesman”. Makes a lot more sense that way. Even if I’m wrong here, there’s also the possibility that this is merely the in-store date, as the prior info we had said 11/21 but web only.

  • joejoe509

    Ugh. How many times has Google themselves (Duarte) said it will be November, not December? This is false. December 8th is either a marketting campaign or we will get online sales first – sometime this month. It’s the only way to explain all this misinformation out there.

  • Chrisriner84

    This does say scheduled to launch in all locations, but the internet is not a location. PLEASE online release before this!

    So much for a November launch… I was thinking Dec 1st at the lastest but whatever…

  • The hype has worn off.  I’m going to stop paying attention to Galaxy Nexus news until I can buy the thing.

    my new pricesheet today had a release date of “11/25???”

    • Pre order maybe?

      • Memphis1967

        I dunno, but it does have a price of $299/$659 to match the razr and rezound

  • Billy Jenkins

    if its not about that motoactv watch then I don’t care about it.

  • All locations on 12/8 and web only on 11/21? 

    • Anonymous

      Could be… Web only buyers would get it first. Either way, pre-orders should start on the 21st. But we’ll see.

    • joejoe509

      That’s what I’m thinking.

  • Naergoth

    Verizon and google really need to learn how to launch a phone. Terrible strategy. Unfortunately the fruit knows how to do it properly.

  • Jamie Watt

    Loom at the column “Location Type”. I’d wager that there is a dropdown value for “Web”. Remember, one of the major launch characteristics for November involved a Web-Only initial debut, much like the initial Nexus.

          Yea man, he can’t read and comprehend due the fact he has too much dick on his brain. Any normal person would have read what you originally posted and understood. Im with you man, whatever the hell the date is I just want to know a definite.

  • It looks like a photo of a forged document. I mean if you look at it closely, the webpage is awkwardly cut-off within the browser window; the, what should be internal document, is displayed on what looks to be the Chrome web browser with radio buttons for sharing on various social media sites (something I doubt corporations would have on their systems, take your pick between Chrome and social media sharing); the device is listed as ‘Samsung Nexus’ instead of ‘Samsung Galaxy Nexus’, and lastly if you look at the blurred section about iPhone update, it states ‘…and will be received by Wednesday, 11/21’ (if my eyes serve me correctly, which, it is possible that’s a 3, not 1). Wednesday will be the 23rd.

    It may very well be real and just have awful QC on posted docs as I too have reason to believe the phone will launch in December, assuming a certain retailer isn’t dumb enough to host a training on the phone POST-launch, but we’ll have to wait and see, because I really want this phone!

  • Arizzxo

    Can’t we just organize another twitter spam attack for a release date.. like we did for confirmation that they were getting the phone

  • Say it ain’t so Matias just said November. Verizon do NOT screw this up

    • ChuckG73

      Yes I saw the same interview and I can only imagine how Google will feel if it gets delayed until an hour past November.  Leave it to Verizon to screw this up, you do not have to look to far back….remember how royally they messed up the whole Nexus One for us.

    I was just @ VZW, talked to my sales rep(which he is also the manger). He couldn’t tell me for sure the release date on the gnex. As I was leaving he said “see you soon” and winked. He did the same when I was asking, when the bionic was going to release. So I’m going with before dec 8th.

    I’ve been due for an upgrade since April, and waiting since then for a replacement. I can wait two more weeks.

    • Afelm

      It’s 3 weeks…And we all can wait, we have no other choice. Still doesn’t change the fact that VZW is ramming us pretty hard. There is no doubt in my mind that this push back wasn’t due to any bugs but more because the Razr and Rezound are not selling to their liking so they push the Nexus back after Black Friday hoping to get more sales…

  • Michael Potter

    I trust Google with my life… hearing Matias say that it will be out in November, it will be out in November

    • Uncagedchipmunk

      If my memory serves me right (which it doesn’t in most cases) but I’m sure Matias said “you can buy it in November” not that it will be offically out for consumers. He was pretty careful in his choice of words.

    December 8th, thanks for pissing me off MORE verizon. I got this shi* Droid Charge that’s going down in value every day and I need to sell it for some cash to buy this phone that actually works. I hate Verizon, they play like Apple, don’t tell consumers anything about release dates. You screw more people by holding back release dates till a week before than telling us a month before. Such a bad company decision. I am requesting a new CEO, idiots.

  • Ugghh this is really pissing me off.  So tired of this Thunderbolt.  On the upside though, Verizon turned on LTE in my town today (Waldorf, MD) even though it wasn’t on the list.

    • Anthony Vella

      At least you get signal, my crappy Droid Charge won’t even stay on 3G for 10 minutes nor hardly switch to any 4G towers. This phone is complete rubbish and was the Galaxy Nexus rushed.

  • THIS SUCKS WHAT THE HELL.

  • Anthony Vella

    I am frustrated now because I have this crappy Droid Charge and I can’t sell it until I know the release date of the phone since you only have 14 days to keep unlimited data and get a new phone or you lose the unlimited. Verizon, you really screwed me over, I hate fortune 500 companies…

    It is understandable that VZW is a Greedy MOFU. But google not being top of their flagship device is simply pathetic beyond words.

    If Google maintains this kind of lackluster. jack of all master of none.. leave it to the carriers approach.. it won’t be long before Google gets thrown out of the market by frustrated consumers.

    • Anthony Vella

      Honestly, they might as well open a sector in a wireless company. Google Wireless. Phones that Google controls and you get unlimited data. These companies are stealing from us, its a joke. I hope Google also uses that new Wifi thing they invented to allow hotspot apps to use it to bypass the Verizon expensive as hell service. Honestly, its a bunch of BS, they make so much money… Google Wireless 4 LIFE!

    If this is a true then Verizon is a cheap & nasty whore who will try and suck every penny out of everyone on other phones that they have launched recently.. and Google, the big lazy, lukewarm tepid of a cesspool that it is.. will simply sit around under the pretext of letting Verizon “have it’s thunder”.

    The best way to give these guys the finger would be to have a catastrophic debacle when it comes to the sales of the Gnex.

  • GreenEyedBandit

    I just called back and the primary reason for the delay is the razr and rezound, they know that the majority of upgrades happen in the first 4 weeks of launch and don’t want the nexus to overshadow those phones. Sucks but makes perfect business sense.

    • That doesn’t make sense to me. A phone sale is a phone sale. Why would Verizon care if it comes from Motorola or HTC? That is Motorola’s and HTC’s problem. If you sell more Nexus phones Verizon still gets the contracts and the money. I don’t get that logic.

      • GreenEyedBandit

        they have to buy their stock just like any other retailer and would you want to be stuck with 10,000 units that you know wont sell?

        • That’s not how it works in the stores.  They can return any unsold stock, that’s why Logitech took a bath on Google TV, and not Best Buy.

  • Jack Hoffman

    @P3Droid –
    So here is the skinny..there is no stock in the us..orders will arrive at us customs around the 29th of November so best case scenario is a early to mid December launch.

    • Don’t trust him he is very unreliable

      • Jack Hoffman

        Unreliable as shown by what?

  • I honestly think this is holiday marketing graphics. December 8th sounds about right to start holiday marketing for the iPhone, iPad and Galaxy Nexus for Verizon.

  • I will give every poster on this message a nickel if the G-Nex actually releases on 12/8. This is an ADVERTISING SCHEDULE, with little to no bearing on when the actual phone will be released. Remember, VZ released and had a huge marketing campaign for the DROID RAZR less than 10 days ago. Do you really think they’d tear that down so soon for a phone from a brand that has historically been neglected by US carriers?

    My best guess is that it goes web-only on the 21st and is in stores on the 28th.

    • That’s what I think too

    • I wouldn’t believe anything are said…they don’t know too much more

  • Didn’t the same issue happen with both the Thunderbolt, and the Droid Bionic? (Feels like) Thousands of release dates, and nothing came to fruition for weeks (Thunderbolt), even months (Droid Bionic) at a time… and yet, soon after they were announced, newer, better technology was released…
    Yes, 1st ICS smartphone, excellent phone stats, tech-proof for at least 18 months… But realistically, this phone’s becoming much ado about nothing.
    Here’s hoping we get the best (for now). Otherwise, this waiting game for a phone we really don’t need (except for OG owners that are due for an upgrade) should be better spent elsewhere.

  • Mps623

    excel doc was sent, and recieved and was just edited, easy to see that. right hand colum sayes nothing to important, and take notice to all other listings, i*hone refresh, ipad 2 refresh, and just Samsung Galaxy Nexus? dosnt make sence. FAKE!!!

  • future gnex owner

    Those descriptions are for marketing materials. Marketing mats do not always come before a phone launches, if that were true then you wouldn’t actually see the phone til after the 12-8 date. The day I walked I into the verizon store and purchased my OG there was only a dummy model on display. That was launch day. Same with the bionic I bought (and returned lol)

  • The longer Verizon waits the more returns they will get from people just buying a phone to hold them over! Stupid!!

    This is the only tech site reporting that.

  • Definitely a marketing campaign. The refresh for the i*hone is referring to new promotional materials to replace the old ones. OMM is updates to their online campaign.

    The fact that it says Galaxy Nexus will be receiving new POP (point of purchase) would indicate to me that they already had some sort of POP prior. Legacy locations I would assume would be locations that already had the product. The term “legacy” makes me think they’ll have the Nexus before 12/8. Date = busted.

  • Mike McCrary

    I appreciate you giving us the things you find, but I have to say, this looks like an advertisement schedule and NOT a schedule of actual launches. There are way too many independent sources corroborating some type of launch next week on the 21st, whether it is an online only sale or an online pre-order.

    Basically what I am saying is, don’t panic and we’ll see what happens Monday

  • This means nothing. See launch/end date. It could be the end date from the Black Friday ads.

    yeaaaaaa, not to just repeat the same thing over, but if you look at the right most content column, its describing certain marketing items that stores receive to advertise new products, such as signs, stand-ups, and what-not. And the project names? iPad2 graphics refresh would probably be referring to new spec sheets with new pictures or something along those lines, and iPhone Window Refresh would be the same, but for window signs/blind-like materials. OMM Enhancement and Samsung Galaxy Nexus are very vague Project names, so who know’s what they entail entirely, but we can see, again, from the right most column, that advertising materials are being sent to stores.

    Pure speculation here but perhaps the 11/21 Date is the web only release date as indicated on the previous map and 12/8 marks in store availability.  The previous map was marked 11/21 w/o (w/o could mean web only or week of) the above spreadsheet is marked “stores” for this date.  I dunno I’m just trying to make sense out of Verizon’s marketing plan at this point.

  • Take something from a Bionic user…never believe any dates until Verizon actually announces the phone. Verizon said by the end of the year, so as long as it’s here before January 1st, 2012, they’ve met their deadline. The only reason you guys are so upset about all these dates is because you read blogs like this that throw out every date in existence. Seriously, calm down, and only believe the date once Verizon announces it.

      Correct.   I think if Verizon meant that it was coming out in November THEY would have said so. They said by the end of the year and I’m sure they will deliver…

      There is no way they will all of a sudden release this phone out of the blue as a surprise. There will be notice just like with every other phone that has come out. It is starting to look like by the end of this month would be tough… and I’m not happy about it one bit.

    • The reason I’m irritated is because they announced the phone over a month ago.  Why announce something that people won’t have the opportunity to buy? 

      • Anonymous

        People can buy it…in the UK.

      • Mr. S

        Uhhh probably for the same reason they don’t just release movies at the theater without announcing them? The purpose is to build up anticipation and excitement… strictly business

        • nah, its poor planning and everyone getting ahead of themselves.  One thing Apple does right is they announce a product, then allow people to buy it in no time.  Let your good product shine on its own in the hands of users.  No need to stimulate hype about it.  Compare it to guys with a little dick trying to compensate for it with their affliction shirts and so on….at the end of the day, their dick is still the same size, the hype doesn’t change that.  I know that was a stretch, but you get the point.  They are missing the biggest shopping day of the year btw, do you really think that this small percentage of “phandroids” waiting on this phone is going to make the slightest bit of difference in their overall sales? Probably not.  The earlier they put it out, they longer they can take advantage of the sales from this phone to the ignorant mass market, and the Gnex will only be considered cutting edge for a very short period of time.  They are missing out on a huge opportunity.  The phone will be outdated in no time when these quad core monsters come out.  One last thing, comparing a simple consumer product to the movie industry is the worst argument you ever could have made.  Try to stick within the same industry. Atleast movies give a release date.

      Perhaps you haven’t been with Verizon long.  I’ve been with them for over 10 years.  After being a customer for that long you start to get used to disappointment.  You begin to expect the worst.  Knowing the release date will not make the phone come any quicker, but it will put my mind at ease and allow me to look at the situation optimistically.  Without a date, I will continue to have this fear that Verizon is going to somehow screw this up and I’ll never get a Nexus…that or it will come out summer of 2012.  Them saying it will be out before the end of the year means absolutely nothing.  When did they originally say the Bionic would be out?  Yeah.

      • Booobo

        They never said when the Bionic would be out.  That also was due to these dumb sites printing rumors that their “sources” told them about.

        • Anonymous

          They didn’t give a date, but they said back in January that it would be out in the spring. It came out in the fall!

    You should say something, like what this is or where it comes from

  • Kellex, this is clearly for marketing materials, not necessarily the phone… we all knew earlier the marketing would commence after the phone is released… look at the descriptions of the other items.  Mark my words, we’ll see the phone next week.

    • Which is why I’m trying not to say anything. This could mean December 8 or as you suggest, could just mean when marketing materials will be ready.

      • Understood.  You should put the fact that it appears to be marketing materials in the description or else people are going to harm themselves without looking closely at the screenshot.

  • Not to keep any false hope- but the description seems to reflect signage and marketing within the locations. It’s possible these things move out after the phone launches (at least in a web-only platform).

      I did the same. It’s actually pretty nice. If it had an unlocked bootloader and ICS I would keep it.

      • Agreed. I was messing with it at the store and its a decent phone. If the nexus wasn’t coming I would have gotten the razr. I was really hoping for a 11/21 release. At this point, I am tired of waiting and the rumored dates so I’m going to get the razr and return it when the nexus comes.

            razr’s pretty nice looking.. my buddy just got one this week.  likes most everything about it except that it gets really HOT.. like uncomfortable and irritating when it’s in his pocket-HOT.  he’s waiting to trade it for the nexus too.  rezound looks like a brick when you see it in person.

          • Anonymous

            yeah, i had heard about how hot it gets. i guess the Razr looks so wide b/c it’s so thin. what did your friend think about the screen? does everything look pretty crisp to him?

          • Anonymous

            yeah, it looks pretty nice.  although, he falls into the same category as me though, that moto’s pentile screens don’t really bother us.. we’re not ever staring at it an inch from our face to notice the pixels and it does the job on everything else we’re doing.

            that said, the rezound’s screen is definitely crisper.  went to vzw with him and saw that right away when i picked it up.  but the phone is uber-thick.

          • Evan

            lol, it;’s funny how people say “LOLZ you GOTTA BE AN INCh AWAY TO SEE PENTILE”. Try, If you have a decent pair of eyes, you can see pentile from a solid 3-4 feet away. Seriously. The Rezound screen is MUCH better than the razr’r screen. Not pentile, higher resoltuion and much higher pixel density.

            Go with the rezound. Theinner than your bolt, much better screen, and thinner and lighter, faster. and comes with sweet earbuds!

            No OLED screen, worse radios, lesser build quality, brick thick, slower, heavier, tired design, sense.

            Do you have a rezound?  I do and it’s an awesome phone.  This is coming from someone who has own two moto phones (DX and D3) in the past.  And pentile stinks.  You can dress it up with all the OLED glory you want.  It still looks like crap. 

          • Anonymous

            To you maybe, to others we aren’t as OCD as you. You know what’s funny, no one gave a crap about pentile until some idiot on one site made a big stink with his zoomed in pictures and as usual all the other sites piggybacked onto it. The Nexus One and S both had pentile screens as did the Incredible and the entire lineup of Galaxy S phones yet there wasn’t a peep about those.

            AMOLED screens offer superior contrast, color gamut, response time, viewing angles and tend to draw less power overall.

            Yeah, advantages and disadvantages to both. The screen goes to the Rezound but the form factor looks great on the Razr. I don’t know if the Razr would be too wide though. Looks kinda unwieldy. I saw one review that said the Rezound was a little laggy d/t to TouchWiz. Not sure how true that is.

        People want to hear about the date it’s coming out, the fact that it’s ever-changing has been quite the debacle and it’s actually bringing a lot of tension to the situation, which makes it a good story for a quick post because there are THOUSANDS of people pining for the immediate release of this device.They’re also clearly not milking these updates either, Kellex just said they’d decided to back down on posting, even.

        Imagine being on any other carrier in the US and not even knowing whether it will come at all.  I bet AT&T customers were assuming they would get it, and then AT&T is stupid enough to ask them if they want it, which should have been a rhetorical question.  I feel bad for any company that is so disconnected from their customers.

          But guess what…. If I were on AT&T or T-Mobile I could import the Nexus NOW and activate it and be happy as a pig in mud.  Which means that if you want a Galaxy Nexus you could get one NOW if you were on those carriers.

          Being on Verizon I am NOT able to get the phone AT ALL.

          So which carrier is better… the one that you can get one now, or the one you have no idea when it will ever show up.  For crying out loud even the demo units they are providing everyone are activated on T-Mobile.

            You’re not serious, are you? Yes, if you were on either of those carriers, you could have a 16GB non-4G Galaxy Nexus right now. Congratulations!
