Oops, Some Best Buy Locations Selling Verizon Galaxy Nexuses Early

The final release date for the worst Android device launch in Verizon's history since the Thunderbolt and the Bionic is still unclear, but some Best Buy locations apparently didn't get the memo and started selling the Galaxy Nexus ahead of schedule. Some of those who were lucky enough to grab this holiday season's hottest LTE-enabled Ice Cream Sandwich gadget decided to let the photos do the talking, as folks tend to get pretty edgy when it comes to Galaxy Nexus news. Let's have a look, shall we?

First up we have Sean Bates, aka sfbates, who posted the following:

I'm not sure what the deal is with all 9s in the SKU, but something tells me someone either made a booboo or knowingly sold an item with a SKU that clearly indicated the item was not meant to be for sale just yet.

Have you before? Or does the phone come second to the network? Sound off in the poll below, and head down to the comments to speak your mind.

Protip: Use Coupon Code "VZSucks" And Get $45 Off Your Unlocked U.S. Galaxy Nexus At eTailer Negri Electronics

With a phone as highly anticipated as the Galaxy Nexus, it's understandable that people are (very, very) frustrated with the many rumored release dates passing with nothing to show and no official word, especially when stock of the phone is sitting in store rooms at retailers around the countries. Worse, many theories are that it's basically motivated by greed on the part of Verizon. No surprise, then, that even retailers are hopping on board the Verizon-sucks bandwagon:

[Rumor] Verizon's Galaxy Nexus May Not Be Available On December 9th After All

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.

Verizon Wireless Says It Isn't Blocking Google Wallet, Blames Integration Issues - Orly?

Yesterday, a Google representative confirmed that the upcoming Verizon Galaxy Nexus will not support Google Wallet, Google's NFC payment service. The news was disappointing - it is a Google phone after all, but understandable to a degree, since Verizon Wireless is part of the competing Isis consortium, which also partners with AT&T and T-Mobile.

Verizon Wireless, however, today posted a statement and wants everyone to know that it isn't blocking Google Wallet (they actually say "Verizon does not block applications" - orly?). "Instead, in order to work as architected by Google, Google Wallet needs to be integrated into a new, secure and proprietary hardware element in our phones."

Update: "Verizon asked us not to include this functionality in the product," a Google representative told CNET.

Confirmed: Verizon's Galaxy Nexus To Lack Support For Google Wallet

In a rather unfortunate bit of news regarding Verizon's Galaxy Nexus, a rumor that the device will not have support for Google Wallet has been confirmed.

A Google spokesperson confirmed to Computer World today that the hotly anticipated Nexus device won't support Google's burgeoning NFC-based mobile payment system, but gave no word as to why Verizon decided to forego the service.

Verizon's decision could have something to do, however, with Isis – a consortium comprised of VZW, AT&T and T-Mobile, who have paired with four major credit card companies to form their own NFC-based payment venture. Of course, this is purely speculation, as there's no official word just yet regarding the Nexus' lack of Wallet functionality.

Galaxy Nexus Units Start Showing Up At Verizon Wireless, Release Imminent

 

Good news for everyone waiting for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon: Galaxy Nexus units have started showing up at Verizon stores. This can mean only one thing - release is imminent. We've been waiting long enough for any details about the GN's US release, so without further ado, the goods:

IMG_20111205_085741 IMG_20111205_085816

As you can see, the packaging is about as clean as it gets - a solid white box, suggesting these are just training units. The sexy red innards with that big beautiful phone inside is definitely what we're all interested in anyway.

While we now know that VZW stores are getting test units, the last piece of the puzzle is still a mystery.

Samsung's Galaxy Nexus Stops By The FCC Again, Appears To Be Headed To AT&T [Update: It May Actually Be Headed For Canada]

Our elusive friend the Galaxy Nexus has made yet another appearance at the FCC, gaining approval for GSM 850/1900 and WCDMA II/IV bands, indicating an impending AT&T release.

Update: A tipster has informed us that the GT-I9250T's 'T' suffix may indicate that the phone is not actually headed for the US, but for either Telcel in Mexico, or Telus in Canada. This speculation seems conceivable, given that previous Galaxy models with a T suffix went to one of the two carriers listed above. Again, this is merely (informed) speculation – since neither AT&T nor Telus have said a word about the Galaxy Nexus, anything is possible.
