Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus Shipments Headed to Stores, Retail Packaging Pictured?

Now this is what we have all been waiting for, the arrival of the 4G LTE Galaxy Nexus on Verizon in stores (or at least on their way). Our sources have told us numerous times over the weekend that this Friday (December 9) is looking like the day, so with devices potentially shipping to stores now, we are surely closer than ever.

And how about that packaging? An all-white unmarked box with red interior? Could you be any more subtle? Any chance that the logos are embedded into the box like one the Rezound and are just not seen in this picture? Or are these boxes still needing to be printed on? No idea, but I’m loving it.  More pictures after the break.

Cheers Mooem, Nick and Jul!

    My OG is freaking out. Multiple screen presses on its own. Left quarter of the screen doesn’t even work. I cant believe I’ve dealt with it for months now because I’m waiting for this damn phone. Everyone of my friends and even my brother, dad, and step mom are making fun of me for waiting so long to get a phone. I have had an upgrade for a year and have waited it out on the slim chance of their being a nexus on VZW. Being an adult I don’t really get excited for Christmas  anymore. Three events have made me feel like a kid again this year. Cardinals World Series, MW3, and this Nexus. Thank you Verizon for giving me my bike under the tree this year.

    • Jared Kirk

      Well we all better get used to waiting 2 years between phones with Verizon’s new upgrade policy.

      I feel you pain man. I’ve kinda been without my OG Droid for the last 75 days, after it had a unfortunate accident. My girlfriend and a few family members keep asking me “when are you getting a new phone?” It’s hard to have to keep saying just a few more days… 

  • Dshudson

    i love the kickstand on my TBOLT, it’s about the only thing I’ll miss! :-(

    That’s awesome!  I rented a Rezound online, how do I exchange it for the Galaxy Nexus? Can I just do it at the local store, or do I have to call Verizon?

    • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.a.yager Joseph A. Yager

      I rented one from Best Buy myself – so glad I’m able to give it back for the GNex…Though I have to admit the Rezound is pretty nice, but would have been better without bloat (and with ICS, of course).

        I looked at it when I went in the day they changed return policy. I thought it was alittle to big and bulky. The Razr was pretty neat, very thing and I liked some of the stuff they did with blur. I told the guy straight up that I would be returning it when the Gnex came out lol. This guy didn’t know a whole lot. I schooled him on the rezound (didn’t even know he had it in the back) and the return policy. lol I should work there.

    • Jason

      You could probably take it to one of the real VZW stores and not a authorized retailer, they could prob help you out. I would call first though to save gas

    A thing of beauty, that will soon be mine

  • Carl Woolsoncroft

    the thickness of this phone really turns me off.. and it’s sad cause i love thick things :/

  • http://twitter.com/Skitz_Marz Alex Gandero

    what i hate is that verizon had a sign up page for info, and not 1 e-mail has been sent to us, and the phone is about to launch

    • thefullritz

      Yesssss, you are right….WTF?

    • Mikehen08

      I think that happens for every phone. I dont recall getting one email until the day the phone is out and I obviously know well before then the phone is coming out….except for this phone

    • Anonymous

      that is nothing new. Happens everytime they do a sign up page. don’t expect anything until after it is released.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1105448002 Bill Siembida

      you will get info the day it launches like they do with all their phones . i get a email the day its for sale 

  • Cflemister

    Could that be the box that they ship the demo unit?

  • thefullritz

    Is that a Nexus in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

    • Anonymous

      I see what you did there…..

  • Sinofue

    That “Master your Device” booklet looks a little worn. Are you sure this isn’t a Photoshop job?

  • Anonymous

    Remember the Nexus One and Nexus S had white boxes as well. This may just be a marketing move to retain the “white box” theme for familiarity, while still evoking a sense of mystery. Think The Beatles “White Album” or Prince’s “The Black Album.”

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Justin-Giles/24615546 Justin Giles

      Or Metallica or Jay-Z’s black album.. haha :P

    Kellex – Please to be reporting on the Costco Bundle deal if ever announced…

  • AH WHAT 2 DO?

    My local Best Buy’s wireless staff are “like SOOOO clueless, dewd”  that I was amazed that they could get out of their parent’s houses long enough to find a job at a Best Buy.  It was really eye an eye opening experience.  I have nearly $300 in store credit to use on my newest phone AND being a first generation Droid owner, my contract is up and I’m gnashing my teeth over which phone of the week to buy.  I almost pulled the trigger on a 64gb 4S but resisted the pull – ah what to do….

  • Julio Duverney

    So, is the 8th still a legitimate date? Or the 9th perhaps on some weird occasion?

    YES! Time to retire the OG and get the Galaxy Nexus!

    Screw Christmas (and I say that in the most respectful PC way)…. I’m more excited for that phone!

    • Sinofue

      If you want to be PC, you can’t say “Christmas”. Screw “Holiday” maybe.

      • http://twitter.com/C3V3 CeeVee

        Yea…I knew I was going to screw that up somehow.  Well…I hope an angel appears and hands me one.

    only guess but this  white box possibly represent the vanila ice cream of a ice cream sandwich and that the white box comes inside a brown box representing te choclate of ice cream sandwich. or the white represents google? just a guess

    my Galaxy S is 10mm thick.  This phone is 9.4mm thick.  IT IS A THIN PHONE people.  If you think the iphone 4S is thick (its 9.4mm) then you think this one is too.

  • Pardes33

    give me some nexus love!

  • Xhaxol

    I know that its pretty thin, but the pictures are not doing it justice. It looks Thick in these pictures.

    Common sense would have easily said that that the boxes should have been brown, with white inside.

  • Forrest Tracey

    Box…? We don’t need no stinking box! Just give us our phone!!!!

    What VZW store has a metal table? Warehouse anyone?

    • Anonymous

      That’s the problem.  It’s not a Verizon store.  The article says “with devices POTENTIALLY shipping to stores now”.  There’s no real evidence that stores are getting these.

    • Cam

      In the stockroom, maybe?
