Last week Monday, it seemed like the Verizon edition of the Galaxy Nexus was just about ready to be sold to many hungry Android fans. In fact, we'd even heard that the release date was going to be the 9th of December, or last Friday.
Of course, now that it's the Wednesday of the following week, we know that didn't happen at all. And because of that, a lot of prospective customers are worried that the device will never make it to the market.
Thankfully, I get to call bologna on that, as even more pictures of Big Red's fabled device have started to pop up. The one you see to the right comes courtesy of yet another anxious Verizon employee who was the chosen one to open the package.
The newest release date to come out of the rumor mill is December 15th, which is tomorrow. I'm hoping that's true, because I'm certainly interested in the Galaxy Nexus; after my dismal experiences with the iPhone 4S' battery life, I might be ready to go somewhere else (unless iOS 5.1 fixes it).
In any case, this is welcome news to a lot of people and I just hope that the next time a pure Googlephone comes to it, Verizon won't be so hesitant to put it out.
Update: Verizon has finally, officially announced the Galaxy Nexus for its network. It'll be available tomorrow for $299.99 on contract. Thanks a ton, Verizon![Phandroid | Engadget]
