Ok more drama to the saga. This flash ad leaked out that shows the Galaxy Nexus on VZW for $199 on contract. That is lower than first rumored and below what the other top LTE devices are going for. Still not concrete release date but the still inactive "Learn More" apparently shows a November 29th dateline. A $200 top tier LTE device??? Great news if this is all truth.
Update: According to multiple reports around the web, this promo picture is legitimate; however, from what has been pieced together, it also appears that this is an abandoned ad campaign from Verizon, and the actual date was indeed pushed to December 8th for some unknown reason. Speculation is that Samsung preferred a total North American launch of the device, and VZW worked with them to adjust for that. There has been no word on whether the pricing of this ad campaign will still be accurate at the time of launch, so perhaps we will get lucky and that part will stick.
