    first off you have 1200 posts how don't you know panda? Second off I think you are underestimating this device.....that screen alone will sell this device and I bet if it comes to verizon it will be sold out for weeks....

    Based on the responses to this thread, it seems like you are some sort of important person in the Android world, so forgive me if I offend, but are are you serious? I too would like a true nexus device on verizon (my carrier of choice), but if you think that "a lot of customers" are going to loose faith in verizon or switch carriers based on whether or not they get a nexus device, you're nuts. You want one, I want one, developers want one, and another four or five hundred people want one, but that's about it. 99% of the android population couldn't care less about a vanilla experience. I would even go so far as to say that most all of them even prefer having all the crappy verizon bloat.
    I don't know the exact numbers, but I'm willing to bet there are a heck of a lot more people than you seem to think that will be more than upset if this doesn't go through.

    I fully intend to take my three lines to another carrier just for this phone. ETFs and lost unlimited data packages and all.

    Well I'm afraid I may be the person who started this whole storm. So let me add my .02 here.


    I believe that the Galaxy Nexus is going to make its debut on Verizon. Is it having some problems, yes it is. Do I expect them to be ironed out, yes I do.

    I only shared information with all of you because that is what I do, but I do not think you all should be acting in this manner. Its just a phone, and its just a carrier. You will have an opportunity to get the device somewhere and somewhere soon.

    So please dial it back. This attention to detail is good for you and me. Because the ultimate goal of Verizon is to ensure a quality product running with no problems so that the network and device meet yours and mine expectations. In fact I want them to be thorough so we don't have another Thunderbolt fiasco.

    So relax, and enjoy the new OS by watching the replay over and over again, the device launch will be here before you know it.
    Oh P3, What am I to do with you? smh lol j/k

    Its obvious VZW is going to go G Nex. They passed on the G II. I just hope they dont postpone it too long. This needs to happen in November. But I agree. Get it right. Make it a kickA$$ LTE device.

    Amen man! Verizon will get this device trust me! I'm not important in the community or all knowing but come on of course they will get the Nexus this time. There are already Verizon versions, hell the videos they shot for the demo were with a VzW version. VzW isn't going to tell them to go away because of issues. They allowed the TBolt out after the months of delays and speculation. We will get the Nexus so everyone calm down and wait to see when VzW says we will get it! Till then enjoy the current Android phone you're on and be glad it's not iOS!

    Hi, I'm new into this thread topic but I do have a question. To help, my last Samsung phone was an Impression back on ATT.
    If the Galaxy Nexus is not coming with Gorilla Glass, which after having my DX this long with no damage I am a huge fan(plus I save money on screen protectors), what are they using on the GN that will assure me I can have a great screen and less chance of easily damaging it?

    I am not saying that millions will up and leave a carrier over this device but this was actually a rather big announcement covered by major press worldwide as well as US based and Verizon has become known in the tech world for not being as Open as they claim and when it comes to the nexus brand we all know how bad that looked.

    heck if every forum member on this site (a million) left vzw over this it would be considered a bad qtr and they would continue to do business as they have been. But the spirit of android and the thing that will help this OS continue to grow to the next level is getting all sides on the same playing field. This will not be a hero device for Verizon but it can be their love letter to those that hit up places like this, so when our less tech savvy friends, wives, husband ask where should they go we can say with confidence that vzw has something for every Droid fan..

    like I said I was just sharing my thoughts..

    Why all the drama? Its just a phone. Pretty soon everyone here will be complaining about data connectivity issues or some other problem. Some me will say it was rushed to market before it was ready and then people will say that the next phone is the one that this one was supposed to be.

    Thanks, Robrecht

    If you announce a phone it should be pretty much set to go...so I'm not buying into it being rushed....if its not ready than don't announce the damn thing....to add to it people have been waiting a long time for big red to get this and that is why people are crazy for this phone

    When did they say ever "Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon?" Oh they haven't. They simply stated LTE capable version and US carriers. They never said VzW or when it would hit for VzW.

    I'm worried because of the fact they didn't have an LTE version at the show yesterday. That's simply the only thing making me curious but w/e it will come to VzW I'm sure.

    I'm of the mindset that there will just be no major hoopla over the phone being on Verizon because if it is indeed a pure Google experience, VZW would rather push other phones, where it makes money off selling bloatware and forced verizon apps. With the Prime, there is no extra side revenue implicitly available to them, so there is no incentive to hype the phone, outside of appeasing us, the rabid fanbase. They will sell it, but there will be no tickertape parade announcing its arrival, because it just isn't a cash cow for them. I think this same logic applies to P3droid asking on twitter if we would pay full retail for the phone, because bloatware and vcast help subsidize verizon phones. Irregardless, I'll be anxiously awaiting this phones arrival.

    Why did no one take pictures of them? Not calling you wrong just haven't seen a photo of an LTE version other than the screenshot from their demo video.

    A certain, reasonable delay, coupled with some strategically placed leaks, creates pent up demand. More than that and it turns into frustration for customers (a la Bionic-esque 9 month delay followed by bug-ridden letdowns).

    Plus it's the holiday season. It's big bucks to miss the main shopping time of the year during this otherwise lousy economy.

    I would say let Verizon wait . And T-Mobile bring it on!!!
    Yep T-Mobile is the "Nexus" carrier, they were the first ones to bring out the now classic Nexus-One, and had the Nexus-S first for 6 months.

    If T-Mobile doesn't get the Galaxy-Nexus soon, it would be like ATT all of a sudden not getting the newest iPhone on release.

    I appreciate the insight. I'm on vzw now but was gonna go to tmo once the nexus dropped. Then i hear its vzw exclusive for now. Now this. IM SO CONFUSED!!!
    I stayed on Verizon just to have an EXCLUSIVE NEXUS phone, if this fails then I'm bailing to whoever launches this baby first.... maybe.

    to pull out a device that is akin to a brick with no data services at the unveiling of the device and OS its running isn't a smart PR move. US carrier announcement and launch will be done on US soil with data working devices...

    Makes sense now. Putting the LTE version there with it reading no service would look pretty bad. Thanks for the info!
