    Here we go, folks! The sign-up page for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus by Samsung is now up and ready for… signage. All you have to do is make sure you’re at least 13 years of age, enter you email address and you’ll be one of the first to receive information regarding the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon.

    And thanks to our member StupidGenius for pointing this out, I’ve included a shot of the banner ad that displays when you search for a Samsung phone on Verizon Wireless. May I draw your attention to the “Exclusively from Verizon” part. How does that sit with you guys? ;) Either way, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus should be arriving any day now! You guys hyped?

    Verizon has every bit of information about me they could need, and they want my mobile #? Get real.

    I don't think anyone has ever gotten anything with terms of updates for phones when they put those sites up. I always get an email telling me when there is a new iPhone though. I never got an email from VZW about the Bionic. I received one from moto.

    Yeah I don't know why I feel uncomfortable about giving my carrier my cell number but you have to wonder why they are asking for it. Like the above poster, I have signed up several other places but still only get the information from this website..

    I signed up for information from one of these pages on the Thunderbolt and received a text that it was available 10 hours after I had my Thunderbolt.

    What's funny, is that this is not a Verizon exclusive at all. Only in the US, and only for a very short amount of time.

    Whether or not it goes somewhere else, they are smart to capitalize on the idea while they can...

    yeah i agree, unless your like us and follow everything going on with this phone, your going to think "oh i better switch to verizon i want that phone" then 3 weeks later your old carrier has it. haha

    Although, this could follow release patterns of previous US Nexus devices I guess. Verizon could get "exclusivity" for 3-4 months, then other carriers to follow.

    this may be cold hearted but...... I don't care if other carriers ever it, just as long as I got a LTE Nexus!!!!!!!!! haha. By the way I wonder if this would work, I've already had to replace my bolt 3 times, and I know a while ago if you had to have 5 replacements you can choose another phone. Could I do that to get the nexus? haha

    I agree, I could care less. Verizon customers who know better, realize we've been getting the shaft on so-called high end devices. It will be nice to have the tables turned, if only for a couple months.

    I never signed up for RAZR info, but I got a preorder email today... I'm wondering if the responses to the sign up will impact the release date.

    Something interesting. On the sign up page yesterday, it said in the banner that the phone was a Verizon Exclusive. That banner is now gone off the sign up page. Things that make you say hmmmm....
