Of all the recent release dates attached to the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus, November 21 has been one of the most reliable. Why? Because a seemingly legitimate internal document from Verizon surfaced about a week ago confirming the date. It certainly makes the most sense; it’s after the UK launch, but before Black Friday. And the most recent internal document wasn’t the first time we’ve heard that date either. If yet another rumor making the rounds today is correct though, then we won’t be seeing the Galaxy Nexus until at least December.
According to P3Droid of MyDroidWorld, “word on the street” is that, thanks to a few bugs and rough edges, the Galaxy Nexus isn’t going to be released until December at the earliest. While none of this has been confirmed, there are other Android users in the know who seem to be saying the same thing. When it comes down to it, there’s two things to take away from this rumor.
Verizon is very thorough when it comes to device testing. If they don’t believe the Nexus is ready for launch, then it probably isn’t. They want it to be as perfect as possible. And in the end, that’s what will be best for Google’s reputation and for consumers.
The other point to take away from this rumor is just how lost everyone is when it comes to the launch date of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. There have been so many rumored dates and so many conflicting reports, no one is sure what to think anymore. Right now, the most accurate time frame is anywhere from next week to a month from now. Usually, when a phone is this close to release, pinpointing the launch date is a bit easier. The Galaxy Nexus is proving to be rather tricky. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as soon as we know more.
