Ready to add another rumor to the pile surrounding the US Galaxy Nexus release date? No? I don't blame you. Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do to stop this whirlwind of release date madness.

We've been hearing December 9th as the final release date for the Galaxy Nexus on Big Red for several days now; heck, an orgy of proof showed up yesterday that all but confirmed it - or so we thought. Now we're hearing that 12/9 isn't the day after all. No one is sure what's actually going on, but we can say that we're not alone - a slew of other sites are hearing the same thing.

C'mon, Verizon, what's the hold up? At this point, I think that most users wouldn't mind waiting a couple more weeks if you would just give an official date. We're all pretty sick of this musical dates crap.

    They did the same thing with the tbolt which ended up being a failed product. Can we expect the same with the nexus. If they push it back another week I'll ride out my contract and go with tmobile in January.

    Seriously Verizon?

    I was in the States, I'd just import the phone and use it on T-Mob.

    There's not been very many times I've been glad I live in the UK, but this is definitely one of them.

    Stop spreading rumored dates and you won't get disappointed when they are in fact just that. Rumors.

    • Cameron Summerson

      Did you click on any of the links in the post? Not a single one goes to an Android Police post. We don't normally post rumored dates unless there is some really hard evidence to back it up.

      With that said, I think most of our readers have already heard the 12/9 date from nearly every other source on the net, and it's fair to let them know that plans have changed. Therefore, I don't find this post to be "spreading rumored dates."

        I don't either Cameron. This is another reason why I respect AP so much.

  • Michael

    at this rate T-Mo is going to launch it before verizon lol

  • twister

    in germany we have still no nexus...
    Amazon has send today the first units, but only a very small amount...
    planned release was 17. november...today is the 7. December....

  • Tres Nugget

    It's sad to say but I had a hard time falling asleep last night thinking "2 days left." Now my sad life has gotten sadder. If anyone cares, the rumor is that it's because of micro-sim card LTE issues on the East Coast.

  • jarhead

    The sad thing is...keep pushing it off and they might as well not release it. The next bigger and better thing is right around the corner.

    • brianmag

      Verizon....LMFAO At this point I'll just wait for the HTC EDGE. What a joke!!!

  • Crippler_p

    Its not Verizon. Its all the bloggers getting everyone's hopes up. At this point, I'm just sitting tight, going to start ignoring blogs, and look for the official release. Thanks

    • Cameron Summerson

      I disagree. Most blogs that post rumored dates have evidence to back it up, which is generally from an inside source within the carrier - in this case, Verizon.

      The fact of the matter is, if VZW would just announce the date already, rumors would all be laid to rest. It has very little to do with bloggers - it really is all about the carrier.

    • jerry

      I agree with you there. Its all droid life's fault saying its official when in fact its not.

  • david

    Rumor is there is a spectrum policy on the C-block deal from several years ago. Not including Google Wallet caused this violation.

    If we all switch to a GSM provider this madness will stop.

  • Mike

    I own 3 verizon stores. The email i got this morning was that the Dec 9th release date was changed to TBD.

    • http://www.joshuanaylor.com Joshua Naylor

      Can I buy a nexus from you now, please?

      • Mike

        Lol, I wish, but i could lose my business for that so that answer is no.

    • Coldman

      Can I buy a Verizon store from you now?

      • Mike

        You want to buy a store?

  • http://TweakMyDevice.com Ryan

    I just confirmed with several local Verizon stores that it WILL be released and available Friday 12/9.

    • Mike

      Not happening man. I am a Verizon store owner and it has been changed to TBD even if they have not recieved that communication yet. Owner here, and likely employee you talked to.

      • Jerry

        Are the units in your stores though?

        • Mike

          Yes i do have them in store. We recieved them this morning and funny thing is 5 mins later i got the TBD Email.

      • http://TweakMyDevice.com Ryan

        Thanks Mike...didn't see your comment until after I posted. When I called earlier today they confirmed Friday for release, but just now they said release it TBD.

        This is frustrating. I suppose the delay is due to the software update that has been planned for Friday?

        • Mike

          Who knows that answer. We rarely know info until pretty much launch time. Being in this business about 10 years i have found this to be the same for all carriers though. They didn't give us any reason or suggestion as to why. Just TBD as the launch date and we were instructed to put all merchandising material away until further communication.

      • Luke Turner

        Mike, how much is it to buy a Verizon Store? I want to buy one

  • me

    Radioshack should have them later this week for Verizon.

  • Steve

    Yeah... The hold up is because everyone is upset because of Google Wallet. :-)

    Just kidding....

  • geauxtig3rs

    Here's hoping that the release exclusivity is timed for the end of the year...

    If that's the case, we may see AT&T or T-Mob jump on it in Jan-Feb

  • Kevin

    Got mine yesterday here in the UK. Now I can't get the Case Mate Tough Case as they're sold out everywhere. So the phone is back in the box for the time being.

    I've been waiting months for my GN so a few more days won't matter so much.

    And the moral of this story? Good things come to those who wait.

  • joebob2123

    GALAXY NEXUS AVAILABLE NOW!!!!
    Just order international version and hook up to ATT or Tmobile. Works great on both AND is fully international compatible (unlike the mythical Verizon version). You CAN have your ice cream sandwich and eat it too!!!

  • R

    I stopped by the RadioShack near me and they said they are getting them in this week, thats all the info he had.

    At this point it's turning into the Droid Bionic.

    • DoomsDave

      I agree 100%, I stopped chasing that headache to wait for this one. It may be the Rezound. I am tired of my Incredible, 2yrs is 2 long for 1 device.!

  • E.

    Lol, dang. Yeah, I just checked with my verizon store manager and he said it is TBD as well :( ...

  • Rob

    Watch, this thing is going to get released and AT MOST a month later every phont will have the 4.0 OTA update.
