Earlier today we received the official Samsung Galaxy Nexus announcement from Verizon the device’s availability this holiday season. While that sent some Verizon customers’ rejoicing, others were quick to point out the fact that Verizon didn’t give us a launch or pre-order date for the device (negative Nancy’s).
It’s been strongly rumored for some time that the device could see a November 10th launch date but that was quite a while ago and as it so often goes in the wireless industry — dates are very subject to change. Tonight, a newer leak presents itself displaying not only the device’s official name (as opposed to “Prime”) but once again, showing the fabled November 10th date.
Given the fact that this screenshot was taken of a Verizon MAP (minimum advertised price), this is the earliest date we could see the device advertised for. You may have noticed the Motorola Droid RAZR showing up on the MAP as well but displaying the device’s pre-order date as opposed to a launch date. What does that tell us? Well, pretty much that everything is up in the air at this point.
So when should Verizon customers expect the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon? Well, I have it on very good authority that the device is and always was scheduled for an early November launch. Let’s see if this leaked MAP holds up.
