Verizon announces white Droid RAZR in stores tomorrow, silent on Galaxy Nexus


Here’s some disappointing news for the masses that are waiting on Verizon’s version of the Galaxy Nexus. Today Verizon took the time to issue a special press release to announce that the already available Droid RAZR will be coming in a new color variant tomorrow, but they failed to mention their most highly anticipated phone of the year: the Galaxy Nexus.

Pretty much everyone thinks that the Galaxy Nexus is (was?) going to be available tomorrrow, December 15, but then again those same folks (including us) were convinced it would arrive December 9 and that never happened.

We took the time to call several Verizon Wireless stores in the area, and they were all mum about the Galaxy Nexus release date. It seems they have been fielding quite a few calls about the device, because they instantly knew what I was talking about. The official word coming from Verizon stores is that corporate has still not sent them a release date and they don’t expect it to go on sale tomorrow.

Rumored launch dates so far have included Nov. 3, Nov. 10, Nov. 13, Nov. 17Nov 21,Nov. 27, Nov. 29, Dec. 8Dec. 9, Dec. 13, Dec. 15, Dec. 24 and Dec. 31.

At this point, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus launch is becoming quite comical. It wouldn’t surprise me if the phone gets pushed back to early next year. Like many of you out there, I really want to buy this phone, so please prove me wrong Verizon.

Update: For what it’s worth, we have received several emails from our readers that said their local Verizon stores are still gearing up for a December 15 launch. Still nothing official from Verizon PR though.
