Newest Batch of Verizon Release Dates: Galaxy Nexus December 9 – DROID 4, White RAZR and XYBoards After

We have been shying away from “rumored” release dates over the last couple of weeks unless we have photo evidence, but today, we are making an exception. The newest targeted release date list has been made available to our friends at Verizon and we couldn’t help but share. To my knowledge, these could be final.

The 9th for the G-Nex sounds odd I know, but the date came up today from two sources that have been spot on in the past. If it’s here on the 8th though, so be it.

We should also point out that stores are picking their SME (subject matter expert) for the Galaxy Nexus. This is essentially the designated rep in the store that will get the device a few days prior to launch to become the expert on it. It usually takes about a week for this to happen, which would put us right about the 9th.

Ahhh, hypebeast.

Cheers ___ and ___!

    Say it isn’t so!  I originally bought a Droid2 and LOVED it, but like an idiot I dropped it, cracked the front.  Insurance replaced it with a D2G and I HATE IT!  Been thru three of them, they keep going wonky on me!  I could write novels with the weird s**t this thing does!  To add insult to injury, this weekend I was helping my mother paint and I dropped it in my paint tray.  Amazingly, after much tedious cleaning, it still seems to function for the most part.  But I just kept whispering to myself, “It’s just until Thursday, Jenn, it’s just until Thursday…”

    Now I have to wait TWO MORE weeks??!?!?!?!?!  This phone is going to be the death of me, I just know it…

    I’m happy with my black Razr. My 2 years with my DX got me hooked on swipe. Its much faster than a physical board. Better yet, the voice-to-text works much better than before. It comes with task manager, witch is more stable then the task killer we’re all used to. If you haven’t upgraded yet, get the Razr. You won’t be disappointed.

    man for people upgrading from the og droid to a droid 4 with lte. yalls is going to love it!!! 

    just waiting for this damn nexus to drop already…. 

  • PC_Tool

    Samsung Galaxy S3? (The G’Nex has been such a let-down in so many ways it’s not even on my radar anymore…)

  • Ray

    Don’t know if its true, but I just went to a Verizon store today to get the rezound. I told the associate that I would trade it in as soon as the nexus came in. He said to wait, it will be out Thu Dec 8. He said he was the resident nexus ‘expert’.

  • Anonymous

    I was just in the store last night and the rep had no idea what I was talking about when I asked about the GN.  He told me they weren’t getting anymore phones before Christmas… How can this guy be so wrong and/or clueless, especially if they are getting or have gotten a test phone that is a week away from release?!

    Remember, the Nexus is not a phone VZW wants to hype. It won’t go BoGo ever probably, and they don’t make as much money from it. That’s why there is no hype upfront. I think when they realize how many people buy and want thus phone, they will pimp it like a Droid or an iPhone.

  • Anonymous

    We need a poll to figure out whether more of us want the gnex or d4..

      Droid 4 all the way.

      Why does it matter?

      • Marshal

        Ya, doesn’t really matter but at least for the readers of this site, I think it’s pretty obvious most want the Nexus. As for Verizon customers in general, I doubt stock Android and unlocked boot loaders are high on their list of requirements.

    its beyond me why anyone would use sprint, my wifes company uses sprint blackberrys for all management, they all hate it,no signal,drop calls , etc etc

    my guy at verizon said he has already had it in hand and trained a week or two ago

  • Anonymous

    i just left my verizon store and the manager said he got an email this morning that the gnex will be available next friday. i guess the dec 9 date looks good. he said they already have accessories in the back. keepin fingers crossed. i resccommended thaht he check out kellens review on the screen comparisons of the rezound gnex and razr. 

  • Nex-Guest

    haha all great comments!! Thanks for the good Read! I was getting bored at work!

    As long as I don’t have to wait much longer to get a better network than Sprint I will be good. The speeds on WiMax are fine for me but the random disconnects and not waking from sleep drive me nuts.

    Hello, anyone out there. Listen Verizon took a long time to release the Nexus because Google just did a software update from 4.0 to 4.1.0 so isn’t safe to say that Verizon wanted to take their time and have this phone work flawlessly (I hope). No smartphone is perfect hut who wants a nexus with bugs in it. Come on everyone chill out the nexus will be here soon enough. Verizon never played games with anyone be size they haven’t said anything about a release date untill they are sure sure.

    • Anonymous

      I agree with you. A lot of nexus geek always crying and blaming the carrier.

      • Anonymous

        because it is the carrier’s fault you moron. verizon is in charge of releasing the nexus, not samsung, because the phone is already released outsideo of the us. but of course you feel the need to blame samsung on everything, due to your apparent hatred toward the whole company and there products.

        • Anonymous

          You are a turd, if you keep defending samsung, they will continue to make bad products.

            weak radios don’t make a phone. but you don’t seem to realize that motorola has there share of faults too. but in your head you see moto as a perfect company who only releases perfect products with no faults or problems. you are ridiculous AnGeLFaCe77.

            I have mentioned the bad things about my bionic. I never liked the build quality nor the display. They are not perfect, but better than htc and samsung. You are the ridiculous one not me.

    So where are the verizon preorders n official announcement I want that g nex now

  • waitingpatiently

    My Verizon Rep sent me a text saying the rumor is the 9th. He might be that “Rep”

  • techRob

    I just wanted to add, that I after talking to a very tight lipped VZW employee today, I walked down the mall to a “reseller”, and they said they’d have the G.Nex in stock on the 8th, but not certain of go live date.  … so the 9th is sounding pretty good. :)

    PreOrder date? anyone

    Friday the 9th does make sense. The Razr came out on 11/11/11 which was a Friday.

    I’m primarily interested in the Droid 4, but I’ve only been closely following Droid-Life recently because I’m due for upgrade mid-Dec; and I’m wondering what the nerd-gasm over the Nexus is. I get that its “Pure Google”, but my response is “So?”. I’m am genuinely interested, so have at it.

    • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

      Listen there’s no getting around it if you need a keyboard you get the froid 4….but if you can live without one its the nexus….HD screen, ICS, updates first, LTE, bigger screen, no skins….for me its all about screen, lte, ICS, and updates

      • Anonymous

        I’m not all gun-ho for updates, since I (ironcially) blame moto’s strong support of the original droid for the reason why its become so painfully slow, and I’d rather my phone just perform well consistently.

        • dieringer scott

          Google will update the phone until it doesnt think it can handle it.  Hence why they are no longer supporting the nexus one

        • Joseph

          The latest OS isn’t that important. Honestly, it doesn’t make your phone do much more than it already does.

      • Rccrod

        droid 4 has LTE doesn’t it?

        • Lewis

          The D4 has LTE and global GSM/HSPA.

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

      Honestly if you love hardkeys the 4 is the only way to go.  otherwise it’ll be preference Razr vs Nex.  Razr is essentially the 4 sans keyboard.  I personally want a better camera and less bloat, so I’m waiting to see what the nex is like.

      • Anonymous

        The Galaxy Nexus’ camera is not better.  If you’re going to root your GN than it doesn’t matter, bloat can easily be removed on any phone once rooted.

    The droid razr in white will be a thing of beauty :)

    • Dominick DeVito

      yet sadly moto fanboys called Samsung Apple wannabees for making the SII in white. I’m sure you blasted them somewhere in there yourself buddy.

        If you see touch wiz it is identical to the iphone big icons
        and colorful. I do love Samsung, but i always feel they are always a second
        choice. If i want to buy a TV, i will buy a Sony first then a Samsung. The same
        thing with cellular, i may buy a Motorola first and then a Samsung if they get
        their act together. Let’s see what the GS3 will bring to the tablet, since the
        GS2 is a winner. They can improve the sound quality though just saying :)

          Can’t argue with your stance on TouchWiz – it certainly is pretty awful.

    I hate to bother phone intellects with questions that are beneath them, but could someone please tell me if this phone has global capability? I cant seem to find a direct answer. Thanks.

      Droid 4 yes, nexus (Verizon lte one) no, nexus GSM version, yes

  • dplowden88

    Anyone else catch the 2 Billy Madison references in these comments? I got a chuckle out of it. Anyways, LONG LIVE THE NEXUS HYPE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am over getting myself excited at every possible release date. At this point, I ‘d probably find it hard to even smile at a date announced by Verizon. I’m  gonna save my energy for when this baby is released and in MY hand.

    I’d rather have a beer ;)

    Sure…..and my name is pedrodepacas.  Really turned off on this whole Nexus Verizon BS.  I was soo looking forward to upgrading to this phone from the OG, but now it just doesn’t feel right.

  • Androidme

    Verizon needs to satisfy us with a $199 or surprise us with a special feature for making us wait a few weeks longer than the GSM gnex!

    • Anonymous

      That special feature is called stock ICS..

    • Josh Nichols

      Your special feature is 4.1.. I wish my Nexus had 4.1 :(
