Another Look at the Galaxy Nexus Retail Box

The pictures we saw this morning of a white box that were said to be the retail packaging of the Galaxy Nexus had some of us scratching our heads. It had to say something on it, right? It does. It says “Verizon” in white and is essentially the anti-Rezound box which was all black with an almost un-readable black Verizon logo on it. I’m trying to find some meaning for the all-white exterior, and all I can come up with is “Vanilla.” Vanilla meaning no skins attached, a “vanilla” version of Android, and the anti-every-other-damn-locked-down-phone-on-Big-Red. In other words, a breath of fresh air.

Cheers @drewm25!

    I would have to agree Kellex with your assumption(on the box color meaning). Good guess by the way, Cheers from the Android nut:)

    Got a launch kit today. Nexus is on my lap as I type. December 8th is looking like the day (or 9th, but I’m going with 8 since we’ve always launched devices on Thursday’s a majority of the time). =)
