Verizon’s Equipment Guide Updated, Galaxy Nexus Release Date of December 9 is “Official”

Yep, there you go. Just like we said last Friday.

Rest of the official specs below. 

Cheers __!

  • …..and i stopped caring.

  • Ok….so I’ve never in my life commented on one of these posts but given all of the speculation I thought I would share what I learned today.  
    I was in a VZW store in Michigan (Farmington Hills) and was asking about the Nexus.  During my conversation with the assistant manager, a woman walked over and HANDED ME her Nexus (complete with VZW branding and all) saying “Is this what you want to see”.  It turns out that she is the Samsung rep for that particular district and just happened to be at the store demonstrating the phone to the store manager, who was going to be the store “expert” on the phone.  It was fully functional (fast as hell) and she let me play with it.  She would NOT let me take any pictures (actually grabbed it back out of my hands when I tried).  She DID confirm that it will be released on friday 12/9.  

    Obviously, I too am skeptical that this is accurate but for three things.  She actually HAD the phone in her hand, the manager of the store confirmed that “if she says friday….then its friday”, and the manager of the store confirmed that she had just been delivered today 15 large boxes with specific instructions to not open, inspect, or inventory the contents until instructed to do so by corporate on thursday.  So…..take that for what its worth….but after having the darn thing in my hand….I’m a believer.  Good luck all!tmljunkmail

    • they had a demo model at costco in Canada, I touched it a bit and watched a video or two, no pics sorry

    If correct then VZW in store employees are really on a need to know basis only. Stopped into my local store on way home. Rep hadn’t seen the phone, couldn’t see any on the way, and there has been no training. She DID say that sometimes training occurs — and phones ship out — as late as the day before. Or, could start out as web only.

  • Give me a break Kellen, you guessed every. single. day. in December.

  • Matthew Morrison

    YES! that was sooooo much fun!! i cant wait to do this all over again with the next NEXUS device not too long from now.and the next one…. and the next one… and the next one… and the next : )

  • Christopher Riner


    They were probaly like, “well, shit, everyone pretty much knows anyways so go ahead and put the new shit up”.

  • Ok guys take this as you will. I called my local corporate store today after seeing this and tried to confirm. They gave me the regular, “no sir, I’m sorry we don’t have any information about that device. Have you tried signing up for updates on our webpage?” So I hung up and called good ol *611. Talked to a rep and she did confirm that the Galaxy Nexus will be available in stores on Friday December 9th, 2011. I laughed and said finally! I asked about preorders and she didn’t have any information about preorders. My guess is this phone will be available in stores and online on Friday with no preorders. If you don’t believe me call *611 from your Verizon device and see for yourself! 

    • Bbrutcher

      got the same information from the vzw rep i talked to last night but this one confirmed no preorders.  i asked him if he could just go ahead and put the order in for me since we were already on the phone and he said no the computer won’t let me do anything with this phone till friday!

  • Adsfadf

    I’m taking like a month break from droid-life once this phone comes out. I dont know what I’m going to do with all of my extra time honestly.

    Wow this thing is going for $759 unlocked on Amazon. Thats crazy. Makes me think about about a two year contract, until I realize hopefully VZW will “man up” and bring the new nexus out sometime next year. its like $63 something a month for a year. If it doesn’t it pays to have the peace of mind to drop VZW if they fumble this investment.

  • Mhultim

    Thats funny I just checked with the huge verizon store in my local mall , And they said they haven’t heard anything

  • Ldakota66

    Wow, it’s about time!

  • Just got home from my local Authorized Retailer. I asked him about the Friday release of the G-NEX, he went to his computer and said his shipment was currently on its way, with a grand total of 4 phones. They will be arriving tomorrow and will go up for sale Friday morning. He had not even gotten his demo kit yet. Very low key.

  • djjsin

    I love it.  I just called up verizon.  Though they DID confirm that they are releasing the device on the 9th.  They said no pre orders…wtf is that?!

    • djjsin

      the other thing i want to know.  I signed up for email alerts for this device on the Samsung Site, the Google Site, and the Verizon site.  Not ONE has sent out an email.  Come on guys….

  • Had the opportunity to play with the Gnex today. ICS OS is amazing but the phone is laggy compared to the SG2 :(. I hope that there’s an update on the way. I had real high hopes for this phone. Now I dont know. May roll with the razr. IDK

    This thing should wont be sold out in a day will it? 

    I hope not, I have to be at a client’s all day Friday – I probably wont have time to duck out and grab this thing until 4:30.

      I’m sure we will get an email before Friday. We knew VZW was gonna be hush hush about it. I wouldn’t be surprised if they actually didn’t announce it untill the day it is actually release. (Friday)

  • I’m late, but OMG SO EXCITED! Luckily I’ve been telling work all week, the phone will come out on the 9th or I’ll go nuts AND I’m def leaving and coming back to buy it when stores open. lol

    According to the Specs above..it says it requires a $g Micro SIM card (which we all know) but it is NOT listed as included with the device at the bottom….
    Are we gonna need to buy the 4G SIM card separately…???
    Also, there is NO mention in the Specs about NFC at all….I would think that WOULD be listed…NO????
    FOR REAL???/

    • lmao yeah you’re going to have to buy a SIM card……. lets be serious here for a second and think about what you just asked. what would they charge 25 cents?

  • Well that’s kinda depressing… seems to be the only news regarding the GNex is the 32gb $299 version.  I was kind of hoping there would be mention of the supposed 16gb $199 version, or was that SKU completely scrapped?

    • if you can’t dish out 300 for it then you don’t deserve a smartphone like this…. bottom line

      • Never said I couldn’t dish out the 300; if the 32gb SKU is really the only way to go then so be it, in the states of course.  All I’m saying is that storage capacity options would’ve been nice.

      • Anonymous

        I’ll be purchasing the 32gb – frankly I wish there was a 64gb! I have lots of music and I like it WITH me, not in the ‘Cloud.’

        But…a lower price point (16gb) phone might mean greater adoption, and thus a more popular phone.

    Even though there is a ton of evidence that points to a Friday release of this phone…I still will be watching my Gmail inbox like a hawk for that one verification that I can count on: A pre-order email from Verizon themselves.

    • Anonymous

      No pre-order…we will probably just get an email saying its on sale. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was the actual day it does go on sale that we get notification. Or they could just be waiting for confirmation that all stores have received their units before they make it “official”.

    welp just returned my rezound today after reading this since it was the last of my 14 days. cant wait to get this friday now.

    • NOOOOO! The return policy was extended to Jan. 15th! You didn’t have to return it today. Verizon didn’t mention it and try to talk you into keeping it?  

      Good thing you don’t have long to wait.

    Just called my local Verizon store and then called Customer Support, both of course denied knowledge of a Friday release.  Also, my upgrade isn’t due until the 27th of this month.  Both the store and customer support said the earliest I could upgrade was the 20th because the Galaxy Nexus is a 4G phone.  Was anyone else aware of that rule?

    • Moto Spark

      I upgraded early with a $20 charge to the Razr which is also a 4G phone, and returned it in 2 days due to how wide it was.

      …not that we have any NFC enabled credit card machines around town but would be nice just to know you have it..

    • Anonymous

      Rooting won’t be enough. Wallet requires access to the “Secure Element,” so it has to be flashed on. You’ll need to unlock the bootloader for that, although at this point the only way to root is to first unlock the bootloader anyway.

    Wow just noticed they listed the usage time as 12 hours

  • Rob

    $30 minimum data plan required??  what about the 300MB plan (double data promo) for $10?  I’m hardly ever off wifi.  is the $30 plan required for all LTE phones?

    • NotoriousNeo

      Yes, the $30 2GB (4GB double data promo) is the bare bones minimum plan you can attach to a 4G LTE smartphone. The $20 300MB is just for 3G phones. 

      • Rob

        I’m so confused.  When i go to the website and add the RAZR (for ex) to my shopping cart and proceed to plans, it shows the 300MB plan as a clickable option.  What gives?  This $10 difference will decide which plan is cheaper for between this and ATT (after company discount)!  Gahh….

        • NotoriousNeo

          Actually, I see that now too. From what we were told, however, 4G phones required a minimum $30 data plan. They even had us switch out price cards to reflect that. But hey, if it lets you do that online go for it, but be wary. 4G phones can gobble up internet pretty quickly, although I guess with that data manager the Nexus should help you avoid that.

          • Rob

            thanks for the help.  I just hope it wouldn’t be a situation where they let you choose the 300MB option online, and then a month later they automatically bump u up to 4GB.  

          • goodfella

            That’s called a lawsuit.

          • Anonymous

            Actually, while that would be one option, another approach would be to view it as a really good deal. At that point, Verizon would have fundamentally changed the terms of your contract. If you chose to decline that change, then they could either restore the original terms, or the contract would be null and void. 

            In that case, you end up with a subsidized Nexus, and Verizon ends up with no contract at all.

          • Rob

            interesting.  well, i did some interweb research and it appears that when they started the double data promo, they also made the 300MB plan available to all phones, so we’ll what happens on friday when i try to get a nexus!  otherwise, it’s gs2 time on att…thanks all!

    Got one in my hands right now. Gotta say, I’m digging the new interface. Not digging the performance hit all but one live wallpaper do though and that you can’t remove the Google Search bar. Other things are kinda annoying me, like the Facebook sync issue, but overall very solid phone. 

    • KevinC

      what performance hit?

      • NotoriousNeo

        All the live wallpapers, the exception being Phase Beam, have a noticeable effect on the scrolling and transition animations, the main thing being they cause the phone to lag. 

  • Ronnie Phantom

    Store in Boston still claims they’ve gotten no word on a launch date. They must not like money.

        Is this how google thought Verizon would advertise a nexus phone?

        • honestly i dont remember a whole lot of advertisement for the other nexus devices, granted i wasnt as much of a fanboy before.

          the only ads i recall are DROID and EVOs

          • Anonymous

            The Nexus S 4G had a pretty strong ad campaign with Sprint earlier this year. Other than that, I can’t think of anything either.

          • The original campaign was a failure as far as marketing goes. Most people still don’t know Android and far less know Nexus. They know Droid and I doubt the Nexus will get as good an advertising campaign as the Droid, but if they can get just a few TV commercials I think the GNex will do very well.

            I should point out that most people don’t realize the phone they are using is an Android phone. They compare it to the Droid.

        • The Nexus One had ads all over the internet, where most of the fan base was. Google probably couldn’t do that this time because the release was mediated by the carrier as opposed to it being open, like the Nexus One.

      • GN FTW!

    • nicotinic

      That’s what bloggers/web journalist do. They provide the info they get and try and indicate what’s most credible out of what’s been reported. The more accurate they are prior to release the more loyalty among the site’s visitors. But you knew that. I mean let’s be honest…

      Did we really need a let’s be honest post? Nah, cause I don’t recall, correct me if I’m wrong, you posting any potential dates on your website. How you managed to get so many likes just indicates that trolls reproduce at an alarming rate.

      • Anonymous

        Well isn’t that just the sweetest thing? You defended droid-life and you really put me in my place!….. Like I said to the other guy, I appreciate what Kellen does in running this website. We all want the damn phone to come out so when we all hear a bunch of different dates only to see them come and go, it’s frustrating. I get he is not the one delaying the phone but he is the other getting all of us excited for dates that don’t end up happening (which is looking like the 9th is included in that). I can guarantee those likes are from frustrated people who want the phone, not trolls.

        • nicotinic

          If you’re appreciative then why post that comment?
          People whine and complain about the multiple dates but that’s often why many come to the site in the first place… The announcement of a new device, it’s specs and the expected release date. Many dates are given and hopes are often dashed but it’s all part of what these sites do.

            Not today. Today I am quite ecstatic because of the officially official release date.

            But on second thought…until Verizon or whoever makes the officially official announcement of the release date of the Galaxy Nexus, I won’t be able to sleep. Damn them and their mind tricks.

            Is this how google thought Verizon would advertise a nexus phone?

          • Anonymous

            Verizon is not happy pushing this device for some reason, probably because it’s not pushing Verizon bloatware,. This is a Google device and Verizon only mark on this device is the Verizon logo on it and thats it. Verizon has stayed away from the other Nexus devices in the past.

        • chill, primo.

      Seriously. I’m curious about why there’s no online preorders yet. I don’t want to hunt down a phone through local stores where it may or may not be in stock.

  • Does anyone know if Verizon’s Affinity (whatever the name of that program was) discount applies to phones? I get a discount on my bill and accessories, but I don’t remember if phones are included.

        I think the next Nexus will be made by Sony sans Ericson.

      • Christopher Riner

        Agreed.  (looks around to make sure angelface isn’t near).  I used to think motorolas were awesome, but some of the stuff before the razr and droid 4 was kind of starting to dissappoint me.  I do like motorolas build quality, and with google owning them they just might wind up with one sweet damn nexus.  Probably won’t have a curved screen, tho, which I love love love.  The samsung nexus will definitely tide me over  ’til then, tho.

  • A little bittersweet to be honest. We know Verizon butchered this launch on purpose. The droid 4 is being released before the GNEX (allegedly). I hope Google learned from this horrrrrrrible launch and makes sure the carriers never get in the way again. Google has to start their own wireless company, its a necessity. Google needs to either become the dumb pipe, or invest in a dumb pipe. Or else the future of wireless is bleak for the consumer.

        Does the nexus have ddr2 ram. Gorilla glass, build quality, call quality, radios, smart actions, hdmi mirror, removable memory? Like i have been saying all along, the Nexus just has ICS going for it. The display still pentile, which makes the Rezound superior on that department.
