Official Verizon Galaxy Nexus Press Shots Revealed

What, did you think we were trying to forget about the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon? We have definitely seen the Twitter war going on after last night’s vague tweet from @VZWsupport, but are trying to ignore it. To help make your day brighter though, how would you like to see the official press or website photos of the phone, straight from a VZW .xml file?

The backing of the phone matches up exactly to the photo that one of our sources sent us earlier in the week. It says “Verizon” and “4G LTE” instead of “Google” which yes, is crazy odd. The color scheme could be slightly darker than the GSM version, but it still looks hot.

Three more pictures after the break.  

Mmmhmm. Temporarily fixed?

Cheers Han Solo, Dave and kidtronic!

    Does Verizon think they’re rewarding our patience by releasing a picture of the phone? This is insult to injury.
    The Ice Cream will have melted by the time they get this out.

  • Jake Lipson

    everyone… to the twitter

  • Interstellarmind

    i bet if we all tweeted both @VZW_support and 
    support and @VerizonWireless, it’d REALLY send them a message to stop sitting on this phone.

    gotta be the first time customers are REQUESTING to give a company their money. sheesh!

    • http://twitter.com/OptimusIM Olatunji

      lets all do this

    We have a 14-day return policy & there is no scheduled release date for the Nexus. @VZWSupport:disqus 

    • http://twitter.com/Justinwrites Justin True Anderson

      Why do I imagine the exec comes in one day, picks up the phone and says, “now.”

    • Anonymous

      what crap, 14 day is suspended till Jan15th, lol, clearly they don’t want people to return.

      • http://twitter.com/Justinwrites Justin True Anderson

        Lol, I missed that.  I just found their tweet to be about as informative as anything else.  I’m seriously close to giving in lol.  I’ve been walking around with “newphone” wood for two months.  And I’ll happily admit I”m a big kid.  When I know I can have a new toy it gets really hard to wait…

    I still think those Ice Cream Sandwich icons look horrendous…. very excited about it but can’t help already being disappointed.

    enough with the pictures already, give us a release date!

    That phone is bland looking. That’s not a play on words either. Its fecking ugly. Reminds me of a beige Toyota Camry.

    Man, every twitter acount that has “VZW” in the name has been blasted a few times a minute all morning all over the G-Nex! They know now for sure how crazy the demand is for this device, I love it.

    twitter war:  go do a search on twitter of @Vzwsupport:twitter and   @verizonwireles:disqus 
    s. They are getting hammered non-stop about the galaxy nexus.  Its pretty comical.  the feeds are effectively shut down by angry android fans. Also, there was a vague tweet regarding “change” or something…really odd

  • Anthony Vella

    Can we get a comparison picture of depth to the GSM version and the Droid Charge?

  • http://twitter.com/jhhoffma Jack Hoffman
  • Nick

    the “vague tweet” was this:
    “We plan to announce the release of the Galaxy Nexus this year. We encourage you to visit http://bit.ly/u7LWtu for updates”

    that said, I don’t care if verizon’s logo is on the back, how often do you stare at the back of your phone. I’m glad the front is so clean though :D

    Here is the tweet http://twitter.com/#!/VZWSupport/status/141728931052130304

  • Anonymous

    i wonder if the bootloader says “[locked by] Verizon” as well.  yes, i know it’s a nexus.  yes, i know what that means.  it’s still in verizon’s hands.

    and what vague tweet last night?  i missed that.

    I don’t know how much longer I can wait. I went to the store the other day and bought a box of ICS’s and put it on my OG droid, but it’s just not the same. Also now my phone is sticky and covered in melted ice cream

  • Alix8821

    Doesn’t look THAT much thicker than GSM one…..

    • http://profiles.google.com/kedmond Kazem Edmond

      That’s because it’s 500 micrometers thicker…so about 5-7 human hairs.

            That is another one of Verizon’s hidden religious messages geared towards the Rosary Rattlers.

            I think it has something to do with the Pope finally accepting birth control and family planning.

      Agreed, hoping this still feels like a thin phone. Either way though, won’t stop me from getting it if and when it is released!
