Gallery: Verizon’s 4G LTE Galaxy Nexus Unboxes For Your Viewing Pleasure

Rather than dive back into all of the bad news about the Galaxy Nexus that has come out today, we thought we would instead just plop this new set of pictures down in front of you. I know, I know, it’s not the actual device that you should have had in your hands in 2 days, but it’s at least another look at it. We get a crystal clear pic of the box both inside and out (see the raised Galaxy Nexus lettering on the inside?), a reminder that it’s not a unicorn, and a profile shot of its pretty little body.

Poor little G-Nex, he just wants to be out in the public, away from dirty old stock rooms. Set him free Verizon! 

Cheers ___!

      Media dock, maybe a laptop dock

      • we can only hope

        • EC8CH

          there is a landscape dock and car dock that utilize them.  power is passed through them to charge the battery as well as audio.  Both docks have usb and mini plug ports so that the cables can plug into the dock and not the phone making it easier to place and remove the phone into the docks. The N1 had the same pins and docks.

    Possible that the delay could be with the Micro SIMs. Seeing as how the 4G LTE went down today too…

    I just called my third party verizon retailer near my hometown and they said that they are still a go for a Friday launch for the Galaxy Nexus.  She seemed quite sure of it since she hasn’t gotten any emails or phone calls.  Same goes for the one that is actually in my home town.  They are still a go for Friday as well.  I’m so confused.

    • DWM

      That’s because she couldn’t receive them on her Razr because the 4G was down

    • Bbrutcher

      my rep called me and said they got official word tonight that they were not to sell them! 🙁

    Hello everyone. I’m sure you all know who I am. But what you all may not know about me is that I have the intelligence of a half eaten apple. My social life consists of me alone in my room occasionally watching porn or trolling this website in a failed attempt to feel bigger then what I really am. I

      Are you trolling bro?

        no bro. I’m letting everyone know some extra information about me. bro

          You are not telling us anything we didn’t already know…..

            Yes bro. which means I’m not trolling. I’m just stupid. with the intelligence of a half eaten apple.

          • thefullritz

            you are pretty funny 🙂

  • Steve

    why wouldn’t they just put an assisted GPS inside the GNex instead of a “barometer to help the GPS”??  Seems silly to me.

    • Anonymous

      Because it wouldn’t be Samsung with a working gps.

       They do have assisted GPS in the phone.

  • yes, we all want the g-nex including myself!
    but wouldn’t it be something to send a message to Big Red – no one buy the phone on day 1 of release

    you’ve waited this long, thru rumors and VZW bs … so when released wait one more day 😉 

    i’m certainly considering it – what’s one more day?

    • Anonymous

      in other words, you don’t want to wait in line on Day 1…. i see what you did there

      • KevinC

        lol, there’s not going to be any line for this phone on day 1.

        • Adam Metzner

          Maybe not in farm country or the hills of West Virginia. But in the urban areas I bet there will be people at almost every VW store. Not 100s, but some 

    • Professor Poopypants

      one more day means it could be out of stock, Most stores are saying they have about 15-20

      • Anonymous

        Judging the store by my house, that means there will be 13-18 left to buy on Saturday.

    • Bfirebird101

      Idc how pissed I get at VZW for this release, I’m still either getting the phone the minute the first store opens when they sell it by next tuesday. If the release isn’t within six days from now, I will break in and steal all the GNEX’s in the cage and give the rest to all of my Droid-Life users!

      What exactly is the message you are trying to send? “I am helping to delay a billionth of your profits by one day for failing to launch a device on time even though you never confirmed, hinted, or rumored for that day to be true but I thought it was because a blog made by Kellex, the Droid guru in Portland, and his buds and followers told me it would happen, and even though I signed up for your Verizon Nexus website and you never emailed me the announcement, that means nothing and I still hate pistachios?”

  • kasexy

    I know a friend of a guy of a dude who used to have a Verizon phone, and he told me that its definitely coming out of a unicorns as$ on Feb. 31st.

    For the record, I ache for this phone

    • Steve Martin

      Yea? Well I know a friend of a guy who once knew a girl whose fathers best friends uncle worked at mcdonalds where his bosses best friends nephews friend owned a verizon phone that he sold to his brothers best friends dad whose nephew works at Verizon. and he told me that the Galaxy Nexus will not be shipped to the U.S. until December 9, 2012.

    I’ve still got some hope that if the network gets completely restored, Friday may turn into an unofficial soft-launch at the stores’ discretion. Probably just wishful thinking, but it wouldn’t completely surprise me.

    I’m fine with another delay. ….    I like my current phone just fin…..   GOD DAMN IT RELEASE IT ALREADY!!!  🙁   

  • How’s the GPS? The GPS sucks on the Droid Charge. It its the same on the G Nexus I will not buy it. All devices should come with assisted GPS

    • Dominick DeVito

      it has an a-GPS along with a barometer, which speeds up GPS accuracy.

      Yea you better wait and see how gps on this phone. My old Samsung fascination, friends captivate and charge all had very very bad gps.

      those are two separate websites, put up by VZW and Google separately.

    I just contacted a third party verizon carrier near my hometown and they said they are still a go for Friday and that they have not heard anything about it being pushed back.  She seemed quite sure.  i’m rather confused.  I contacted the same verizon third party carrier in my home town as well today and they said that the Galaxy Nexus will be released on Friday.  

    • Eric Payne

      I work for a Premium Retailer and we got an email from our regional account manager this morning telling us that it would not be launching on the 9th, and no future date hinted at.

      • Dave Tam

        I dunno. Maybe that person didn’t get the email or something.  That’s strange though.

    • thebigmann

      Mine is barely hanging on as the touch screen craps out – some days it works fine, some it touches itself all over (not as sexy as it sounds).

  • Still looks like a unicorn to me 🙁

  • Gonna laugh all the way to VZW if this actually comes out Friday. Thanks for the good news Kellex.

    i dumped VZW ordered my gsm nexus should have it tomorrow 

    • Christephor

      good for you?

    • Guest

      because you didn’t want to wait 5 more days? or because they put two apps on that you can remove within 30 seconds of turning the device on?  yeah, you showed them all right. have fun without LTE

        because verizon has proven to be an unreliable company. because verizon has botched one of the biggest releases of the year. because verizon is trying to monopolize the nfc payment market on its network. because verizon has forced its applications on a device that is supposed to be purely free of carrier bloatware. 

        because throughout this entire process, we have seen how truly profit-driven verizon is. their lack of care for their customers and the public’s demand of just a DATE is completely unacceptable in a time-period when the public is focusing on what corporations do. 

        if you can honestly still use verizon without questioning whether you should switch to a different network, then good for you. the other networks aren’t any better, but by dropping verizon plans it certainly sends a message to the board of directors about public opinion. 

        i support you brooklynchildxbc. you da man. or woman. whatever.

          ????? What’s your problem Bro???

        • Flash

          You do realize that Verizon has hundreds of people dropping contracts and new people signing up everyday for various reasons. The fact that you dropped them because you are pissed how they have handled the release of this phone means absolutely nothing to them, they could care less. The people who follow these blogs and actually even know there is a new phone coming out is such a small percentage Verizon doesn’t even worry about it. You just dropped the biggest, fastest, most reliable network in the country over nothing. Give yourself some time to cool off ……. Cause you’ll be back.

          • Anonymous

            Do you have any idea how modern social networking works? The only press on them recently is how bad they’ve handled this. The only people who are tweeting them are people angry over the Gnex. EVEN THE FCC IS TAKING A LOOK AT THIS BULLSHIT. 

            For at least three weeks now, Verizon has received nothing but bad press. Every large paper from the Washington Post to the Wall Street Journal has editorials on how Verizon is pushing to increase the CR4s in almost every communication market. 

            I guarantee you have never worked in marketing, business, or policy. It only takes one mishap to stain the image of a corporation or a person. This may not be big enough to topple the company over, or really affect their net profits. The message of customers dropping service over this debacle is strong enough though.

      I’m betting on a soft-launch. No use having all those phones sitting around with people clamoring for them if the network is up and activations can take place…
