Though at this point we can’t say we’re necessarily surprised, it appears the Verizon branded Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone will see yet another launch date. Earlier this week, it looked as though December 9th was the day, as both Verizon and Best Buy stores were starting to receive shipments of the flagship Android 4.0 Google phone.
Droid-Life received a slew of emails this morning which indicate that the Galaxy Nexus is no longer launching on Friday, but has been postponed to a yet to be determined date. Corroborating these emails were snapshots of Verizon’s internal Equipment Guide system. Just a few days ago, the Equipment Guide system was showing the Galaxy Nexus with a launch date of 12/9, but today’s update has changed that page to state a less-optimistic “coming soon.”
With the rumored launch just two days away, and still no official announcement to be had from Verizon, I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet that this phone will not be launching on Friday. Though the fact that stores are starting to receive their inventories is hopeful, with all the delays that have hit the LTE version, we’re starting to doubt that Verizon will actually see this phone in 2011.
Update: Add December 13th to the never ending list of rumored launch dates.
