    "An article published by the UK’s Telegraph this morning has our inbox filling up with worried future Galaxy Nexus owners. Could the world’s first Ice Cream Sandwich device launch in Europe on November 17, but not in the U.S. for another couple of weeks? According to this article, that’s exactly what will happen. Here is the quote from the piece that has scared us all:

    “At a recent Samsung European launch…the company confirmed that the European launch will precede the device going on sale in America and the rest of the world.”"

    Crap.

    I wonder why the U.S. always seems to be getting the short end of the stick when it comes to smart phones. I can't even count how many time I have read an article about an upcoming phone, got excited by the super sexy specs, and then felt my hear sink when I read that it would be released only in Korea or something.

    But still, Europe getting the Nexus before the U.S. wouldn't surprise me at all. We are dealing with Samsung here. How long did they make the U.S. wait for the GSII?

    This isn't Samsung, it's Verizon.

    This is all just a minor irritation for me because, I really don't need a new phone but, I fell sorry for people who actually need a new phone and, are trying to hold out for the GN.

    I don't mind waiting an extra week or two, the og droid is still holding in there, if verizon doesn't want my money yet, they can wait for it.

    It's more like how long did the carriers make Samsung wait in releasing the GSII in the U.S.? They are the gatekeepers in this case.

    This is why Verizon's vague press release (in terms of dates) concerned me in that we would see it later rather than sooner. Always prepare for the worst case scenario. I don't mind waiting, personally, but I know a lot of people with old phones are probably fed up.

    I think this is just a situation where a writer is getting confused by wording. Look at the Android Central article from when the November 17th date was announced: http://www.androidcentral.com/galaxy...ere-thereafter

    Kind of similar, right? America's launch was never mentioned. The fact that Verizon is involved makes everything a lot more secretive. Seriously.

    Everyone take a breath.

    Their press release said "By the end of the year"
    That makes your worst case scenario Pre-sales start 12/29
    Correct. When I mean worst case, I mean the less desirable outcome (not necessarily horrible). I'm just saying people shouldn't get their hopes up for a mid-November release.

    Lol...I wrote an email to VZW about it and they called me back. Told me any delay regarding the Galaxy Nexus was Samsung's fault.

    They also said I should contact them to find out if and when Verizon will be carrying the device.

    LOL. Last week I told a Verizon rep that I planned on buying the Galaxy Nexus from them, which they recently announced, and she said "Oh I haven't heard of that, but ok!"

    I'll say 32% of VZW employees know their company officially announced the Galaxy Nexus.

    Haha... so they're not saying there's a delay, but if there is one it's most definitely not their fault.

    You gotta love Verizon.

    I'm not worry. They never mentioned the US at all at the recent Samsung event. It could easily come before or the same day. All they said were the Europe dates and the rest of the world would followshortly after. It could be that its not Samsung's place to annomce the US date because the carriers and/or Google might not be ready to relase a date This article isnt backed by anything. There's still a chance of a 17th launch and Verizon and/or Google will release the date when they're ready. I'm under the impression that Verizon might have a date set, but with the flagship DROID RAZR and the HTC Rezound on the horizon, it not be in their best interest to announce the date for the Nexus.

    Update: they emailed me and let me know that, despite my concerns regarding the Nexus, they hoped I was enjoying my Bionic AND they emailed me a link to the Bionic user's manual online! Awesome!!!!!

    The US Version could easily be launched weeks after the European Versions. I dont think this has anything to do with Verizon and their launch. Remember... there are two versions of this phone... Verizons LTE verison (sch-i515) and the version for everybody else (international and non verizon us carriers GT-I9250 i believe). I think all this talk about Europe getting theirs on the 17th and US getting theirs weeks after is only referring to the version available in Europe, the GT-I9250 variant. Verizon is on their own with the LTE sch-i515. What do you guys think?

    This is just a little blurb article that is probably just regurgitated information from other websites and other speculation.

    I wouldn't read too much into it. Most of the smart money is betting on US release for Nov 10 or Nov 17.

    Panda has stated that as far as he knows it is Verizon pushing the delay back to "space out" their releases.

    I think that makes sense with 3 major phones dropping in the near future here.

    This is all very interesting. It sucks that we have to wait but, I'm carefully trying to pay attention to how things are going.

    I've never wanted a Verizon phone this bad and, never had this experience of delay's & waiting. When it's all over, I have to remember for the future, what rumors were true and from whom. This way, the next time I won't hang on every word, when it comes from certain sources or rumors.

    That's what I love about Apple, they announce the iphone or Ipad2, then the next week pre-orders are available. You would think, other companies would have learned this by now. I know some of you hate Apple but, they are way superior in the way they handle the customer experience. Having said that, they only have one phone to worry about.

    Good idea. I just emailed asking if they had any info on the release date. I doubt it will get anywhere, but the more that do the better. Also it might be a good reminder to keep your emails professional and non-agressive.
