    Well to add insult to injury this little bit of news will ruffle more than a few feathers. Turns out a couple people have already secured Verizon's Galaxy Nexus at Best Buy. Why is this bad news? Because don't count on going into a a Best Buy and snatching one up for yourself. Notice the SKU #, all 9's mean the SKU was entered manually so somebody is in a lot of trouble.

    There are a few more pics w/ evidence over at Android Police. This launch has been nothing short of wacky.

    I'm now debating calling every store that will be selling these within a 20 mile radius.

    Eh, those managers will get over it. I'm going in tomorrow so hopefully I can get a peak at one while I'm working.
