So a few of our readers have noticed something very odd. The URL vzw.com/galaxynexus used to redirect to the sign-up page where you’d request more information via email when the device becomes available. Today, the URL points to shop.verizonwireless.com with a page ID of “Samsung Nexus”.
Unfortunately, that page is about as blank as the expression on a customer service rep’s face when asked about the device’s true launch date. Is Verizon preparing to put something there sometime within the next couple of days? We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves but it’s still possible they could launch the device before the weekend is over.
Is this just an error? It’s possible the page was set to automatically go live at a certain time (reports came in early this morning) but someone forgot to change that. The signup page that vzw.com/galaxynexus used to point to is still live at this link. We’re not sure what’s going on exactly.
Many have gotten excited in suggesting that this could be a sign that Verizon will announce the phone today, but we’ve been burned too many times to even crack a smirk. For now, we’re just going to say move on and wait for an actual press release. [via Reddit, thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
[Update]: And now it’s back to normal. Most likely just an error.
