Verizon Galaxy Nexus has signal problems, offical fix incoming

Galaxy-nexus-verizon-official
With every new flagship release, we seem to more firmly establish the idea that each new device will have some flaws when starting out. The iPhone 4 had antennagate, the 4S has a battery life problem, and now the Verizon Galaxy Nexus has a signal strength problem.

Since the device's release on Verizon, many users have been complaining about numerous dropped calls and poor 4G signal strength. Some were able to temporarily mitigate the issues by turning airplane mode on and off, but that was hardly a permanent solution. LTE has also apparently been draining excessive amounts of battery life, perhaps because it was having trouble connecting.

Fortunately, Verizon has officially recognized the problem in a message from their official Twitter account, saying, "A fix for this issue is under review & will be included in the first post launch maintenance release SW for this device." Verizon's quick response should be great news for users, just as long as they actually push out the update and make sure that Android's flagship smartphone isn't marred any further by their various delays.
