    According to this leaked photo over at AndroidCentral, it appears that Verizon may get their Samsung Galaxy Nexus launch on November 17th. Also, from a lot of intel in the industry, it appears that this will be the world launch date for the phone as well. It would be nice to see it come out for all the carriers here in the States at that time, but that may not be the case. It is possible that Verizon could still get some limited exclusivity rights for a small bit of time. Luckily, we only have two weeks to find out all of the above.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to release it on Black Friday? One day sale price of 250 then jack it up to 250? Not to mention you avoid all the hassles of the pre-order RAZR returns although I doubt there will be many.

    One day sale price of $250 and jack it to $250? You doing government financial statements. :D

    Actually, Black Friday's are terrible for new device release. Most people will either be hiding at home or concentrating on the malls and sales. Further, most will need communication with family members travelling and out shopping and don't want to be setting up a new device in between.

    I'll take the 17th any day of the week. :D

    The 17th works well for me as I do not want to have to fight black Friday crowds in anyway.
    Besides, it is to the point I am drooling over pictures of it already, makes me nervous I am going to accidentally short out my keyboard any time I log onto DF (pic at the top)...

    Oh please let this be true! I should have the money for this after tuesday, and my D1 is on it's last legs.
    If you dont preorder it, you think you can just walk in and buy one on launch day?
    Maybe I should camp out.

    I'd still not rule out the 17th, personally.

    Hmm, getting a warranty replacement on my DX, again, and I'm tired of fighting it. Might have to find a way to give this to myself for Christmas as my 1 year early upgrade is available.

    I really hope that it will be released on the 17th. I am tired of bringing my Storm 1 back to life.

    The 17th would be great... I have until the 19th to exchange with Best Buy... so that leaves the Razr, Gnex, Rezound all as options if I decide to drop the Bionic (which I might not!)... man what choice that would be!
