    A new report from Radio Shack seems to indicate that the December 8th or 9th date for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus is accurate. According to sources within Radio Shack, they expect to get the device, "this week" at select stores. Their schedule for displaying their marketing material and posters is December 8th. The phone will be on sale for $799.99 without a contract, or $299.99 with contract. Interestingly, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be replacing the Samsung Droid Charge on the store display. Perhaps that date flip-flopping from Verizon won't happen after-all?

    Update: Apparently, Radio Shack isn't the only one expecting to get the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Friday. Costco also expects to get it that same day.

    How could they have announced the push back when never officially announced the release date?? This is all tip based.

    I think people are realistically hoping itll drop Friday rather than tomorrow. I'm just sitting back and enjoying my OG.

    I thought i saw Costco selling phones for a bit cheaper than normal. So they might sell the GNex for cheaper? I always thought Costco sold phones for a bit cheaper, but I havent looked at phone prices in nearly 2 years so i may be speaking out of my bum.

    They usually sell them for cheaper with accessories as well. Hopefully they'll get it! :D

    Swyped and sent through the interwebz directly to you from somewhere and some device that doesn't concern you!

    My wife works for an authorized Verizon retailer and she forwarded me an e-mail she received today that stated the Friday launch was canceled with no reason or new date given. Hope it's not too long of a delay!

    I doubt they are just sitting on the nexus. They want it to be perfect so they are fixing all the bugs.

    Would you rather it come out sooner and be full of bugs or later and be perfect?

    Also with the 4g lte issues as of late I wouldn't be surprised if they pushed tge launch date back. What would be the point of selling the Gnex and have everyone complain 4g is dropping?

    It would hurt their sales and cause alot of angered customers.
