    Well guys, it looks like the most anticipated phone of the holidays has been delayed yet again. Reports are coming in that Verizon has pushed backed the launch of the Galaxy Nexus from its Friday (December 9th) release. Who knows why the release has been pushed back but in any event you guys might want to hold off on taking Friday off from work.

    Source: CNET

    *Also, when we get them in stock at Best Buy, I'll be sure to let you guys know. [Update:] Right now they are shipping to our stores.

    Thanks to Malvado for the tip :)

    I think Sprint will have a full LTE network and the Motorola Nexus Xippity-do-da Touch 4G before Verizon gets around to selling this.

    This is nothing compared to the Bionic or Thunderbolt releases. I'm sure it's not more than a week away.

    I agree. People should use these last few days to just enjoy the phones that they are using currently. ESPECIALLY the OG owners looking for their first contract renewal since the Droid that started it all.

    I have confirmation from an authorized VZW retailer that he has ordered his first shipment this morning and they are already en route. Was official word given or is this just blogosphere scuttlebutt (cnet link plz)?

    They're shipping them to retailers but they are not to be sold until VZW signs off on the initial update which is necessary to squash critical bugs.

    Verizon has yet to officially announce anything regarding the Nexus besides "Coming Soon", which was first seen a couple months back.

    The stores in my area have them now. They had them Tuesday when I stopped by, and both told me Friday. I'm going to go down on Friday and try.

    Stores are ordering them, but their computers won't allow them to be sold.

    Its like VZW WANTS to be hated.

    This delay is so ridiculous, it just pisses me off that the consumers are being punished for whatever the VZW higher ups are negotiating with Google about or whatever marketing scheme they want to implement. This is a NEXUS! That used to be synonymous with NO carrier intervention. Completely 100% stock. The branding, addition of two pieces of bloatware, and the disabling of Google Wallet annoyed me, but this makes it so much worse.

    I guess there could be a silver lining. Maybe Google is seeing the response to the VZW crapware and making them remove it... doubt it, but hey, maybe.

    I just hope this doesn't become another Bionic, but as its shaping up right now, Big Red might get the GS Note before the GNex is released! And if I had a choice between the two I would choose the Note with the epicsauce screen and crazy CPU. At least they say upfront that it will have Samsung intervention.

    Oh well, I'll just redeposit the money I took out to buy the GNex... again.
