    We have all been busy playing pin the date on the Galaxy Nexus, but confirmations appear more concrete everyday. The above screenshot leaks today from Best Buy's point of sales system showing the "In Stock Date" of an unknown Verizon handset to be December 11th 2011. This is around the same December 8th - December 11th date that has been mentioned by the best and most trusted Android Blogs around the web. A similar screen shot made it's rounds a few days ago, however this one now displays "Verizon Hardware / Verizon Handsets with the same SKU as the one posted earlier this week. So could it be, just 8 more days??

    Thanks for the tip, Arkbird!

    I think it'll be available at Verizon before Best Buy, so since this is going to be available at BB on the 11th, the 8th is looking good as far as availability at Verizon stores.

    I don't get it, why do they keep blocking out the UPC?

    I think this is going to get interesting. I wonder what the stores will be like... I actually anticipate lines at the stores for the first time ever for an Android.

    Cool because I just lost my phone at a track meet last night. Maybe I can pull the "mommy buy me this" scheme.

    I know the eye's aren't what they used to be, but tell me where this picture indicates a "Nexus" device on it?

    I figured you guys would get a kick out of that. I just wanted to let you all know that the picture really was from me and that I really do work at best buy. I mean I hope this phone comes out before the 11th but that's what our system says.

    Nope, most people don't even know this phone exists....only the SMALL number of people on this and other cell related forums know or care about it's launch.

    You're not going to see the hype that preceded the OG Droid and maybe the Razor.

    There are just too many new phones coming out too quickly for Verizon to properly market each one. Once the phone is out and people recognize it's features only then will the demand soar.
