Add December 11 to the Galaxy Nexus Potential Launch Date List

It has been a couple of days since a new date was tossed into the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon fiasco, so let’s go ahead and add to it. Does December 11 work for anyone? It’s later than the December 8 date that we have reported on a number of times now, but at least it is not two or three weeks later.

According to a Best Buy inventory system, they are expecting the device to be in stock on the 11th. Could it happen? Sure, why not. Anything is possible at this point. Just remember that when the Thunderbolt was on the verge of release, we saw these BBY systems change on the daily.

Not a lot of official word to go on these days, so take it for what it is – a potential date.

    I still think the 8th is a little more likely. The 8th is a Thursday, which is the day they usually do big releases and such.

    A release on Sunday, at Verizon, is NOT happening. December 8th is the day, like P3Droid said.

    • 317jok

      ,,, Although a Sunday release @BestBuy could happen, the VZW Corp stores will have the G Nex before  then

    @0cf69e95d030cf8978798d876e1dc33a:disqus I hope there ..my best friend’s step-sister makes $85 every hour on the computer. She has been out of work for 9 months but last month her check was $8207 just working on the computer for a few hours. Go to this web site and read more..http://trunc.it/imzw0

    The 11th could work. Verizon’s contract over me and my OG last until the 18th. If this arrives before then, Verizon has a family plan of 4 lines renewing. If it lands after the date, Verizon just lost ~$260 a month family plan to.. well probably Sprint.. :-/

    i went to verizon today because my OG droid was screwing up (that damn thing has outlasted two droid incredibles btw), and they told me that the nexus is to be released a week from today and put me on a waiting list. everyone else should go investigate.

    This date won’t happen. The only reason this date is in RSS (best buy’s inventory system) is because this maybe the first date this is in a best buy add. Whether it will have already been released or released in the future. Sunday is when new adds come out for best buy. So I’m pretty sure thats why this is there.

  • KellexNangelfaceRgayTogether

    Hey Kellex you pussy douche you wanna block my comments?  I’ll be around.
    Now as I was saying
    On a Sunday?  It’s a week away from the biggest Dec 8th rumor and no word from VZW?  It’s sketchy…

    Here’s my answer to this screenshot we see:

    1.  BestBuy (we know how they screw up launches just as bad as Verizon does, remember ThunderBolt?)
    2.  Thats a sunday, and Sunday is the day new ads are put into action, it makes sense for BestBuy to say that sunday for its sale date.

    Verizon looks good for 8th
    BestBuy is only likely locking the date in the system for the 11th so there not sold early or there is likely a batch of inventory there getting just for a “sale” for launch day.  Meaning that $199 price could come back just for the holidays.

    Sunday??  Thats an odd day for a verizon release

  • Yellowcanary73

    This is what I’m talking about and the reason I didn’t buy the Razor are they the same type screens.
    Re: Black Spots Under Screen Noticeable in Dark RoomI have the same problem here, I can see it on bed time on dark screens, I’ve read in on 1 of the forums that galaxy nexus & note have the same problem :http://androidforums.com/3542874-post8.htmlBut when i google it, i couldn’t seen any posts saying that the new nexus and note have the same problem, I guess it’s a Motorola Problem, And for a device as strong as that, they should repair it soon !! Editing:well, I guess S2 has the same problem..http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-s2-international/423152-dark-screen-blot ches.html

    you would think 90% of the people on here buying these phones are using them to replace their tv’s the way they talk about the screens…..you guys gonna pay $300 for someone to come over and calibrate it?

  • Yellowcanary73

    Does the Nexus have the same screen problems that the Razor has the dark spots and blotches when watching anything with dark scenes.

  • Jarrett Hall

    it might reach the out of stock date before the phone is released.

  • Nsbjj

    Reading this on my Droid RAZR with a little smile on my face.

    Wouldn’t Verizon stores and online have 1st access to the phone OVER Best Buy? I’m betting the 8th is still a good date…

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

      No, Best Buy has had exclusives in the past.

  • eze4

    A Sunday? Come on man. Please.

  • Nadeem Najib Kizi

    Might as well add December 16th to the list….cause thats when the Nexus S 3G came out in the US.

  • Stating El Obvious

    Kellex better not put out an article when the damn phone finally releases with the line “…like we told you weeks ago”…this is ridiculous…you’ve named every possible week in December, now you’re going for every possible day?  Your sources suck.

    • Cam

      May as well throw darts at a calendar at this point; I don’t think anyone really knows.

      • Stating El Obvious

        Verizon knows.  Kellex and his alleged “sources” don’t know shit.

    • Anonymous

      LOL, you know he’s not going to do that…but it would be pretty damn funny if he dad rofl

      • Stating El Obvious

        It’s just getting crazy!  He’s been saying dates since October 27th.  And he claims he has sources.  To me it just sounds like random guessing, and if he says “like I told you” I’ll stop reading this crap LOL

    • Mctypething

      Do you really think he won’t? Come on now…..I think they are getting close to naming every day in December as a potential release date, so they are covered when they say “like we first reported”.

      • Stating El Obvious

        LOL I wouldn’t put it past him.  “Like we first reported” my ass…whatever sources he has are jerking him around or don’t know what the hell they’re talking about.

        Kellex is living the American Dream:  Dupe a bunch of sheep into thinking he has inside knowledge and profit.  Can’t say I blame him for all these link bait articles he puts out daily.

        • Mctypething

          I would agree with you, but who knows how much these guys make from this site. The sad thing is there are so many droid blogs, but none of them really seem to get it. They regurgitate rumors and posts from each other, and do nothing to actually create the news themselves or do some real work and get the information themselves. I’d love if a site came along that really devoted time to digging into these phones and finding new and interesting things to learn. Nope, we don’t have sites like that. We have sites who do nothing but rehash the same baseless rumors and hype new phones until everyone is sick and tired of them.

          • Stating El Obvious

            Well I gotta imagine he gets a ton of hits.  Like it or not droid-life is one of the big android related blogs out there, so he’ll make a decent amount of money just for having that distinction.

            It was nice to see his video reviews of the phone actually pointing out features and stuff.  But, the constant rumor mongering over and over again and then the “Like we told you before” crap needs to stop…

          • http://twitter.com/ADomeApart Robert Goulet

            Were you around two years ago when this site began?  That’s what it was then…and it was great.  Now Droid Life has become just another tired news site and I come back less and less.  Oh well.

          • Stating El Obvious

            I wasn’t around back then, but it sucks that its taken the path its taken now.  This place is the National Enquirer of android news now.  Next we’re going to hear that a swarm of bees has taken the Nexus to their hive to serve as the their queen and that’s why there’s so many delays.

          • Mctypething

            I know their standard reponse is “we just want you guys to have all of the information as possible”. But at some point you have to filter the crap you’re slinging around. None of these release dates are any more viable than the next, so wait until you have a credible date before reporting. Distinguish yourself from other sites by reporting on relevant topics that have some sort of factual basis. You can’t regurgitate rumors from other sites and justify it by saying you’re just trying to give us all of the information that’s out there. We rely on you to give us solid information, not bullsh*t.

            Yeah, that’s what brought me here. If it had always been like this I would have never become a loyal visitor.

            Sorry to everyone else but I have to agree with this guy. Look o the various Android blogs and you will see the same damn articles over and over again. This site has officially made me sick and tired of seeing anything that has to do with the Nexus.

      • John

        His sources such.. oooooor.. they are quality and the true date has actually been tossed around and moved around like crazy?  I suspect the ladder.

    Preorder the 8th, release the 15th.

    Pretty simple to understand that the date from Best Buy is obviously not the “release” date.

  • http://www.reedpop.com Milton

    I don’t care! I just want it. Change the date all you want, I’m gonna wait regardless. It’s gonna happen like Dirty Mike and the Boys. So I’ll just sit tight and not have a heart attack over it.

  • Justin

    December 11 is a Sunday. Seems odd to release a phone on a Sunday doesn’t it?

  • Anonymous

    Hmm, I predict that the new launch date will be December derfteenth.
