Stacy here, bringing you the latest in the Verizon Galaxy Nexus release date nonsense. So I guess some Best Buy screen shot showed up in the rumor mill today, showing an “in stock” date of December 11th (what’s this like the 36th one now?) . No this isn’t official and no I don’t recommend camping out in Best Buy’s parking lot the night before.
After talking with a local Best Buy manager I learned that while sometimes these dates actually end up yielding product, that doesn’t mean that they will begin sales on that day. Also, this is a screenshot for ONE store, meaning every Best Buy’s inventory screen throughout the country could potentially show different stock arrival dates. Besides, even if they did arrive on the 11th, deliveries don’t always happen in the morning, therefore the 12th could potentially be the release date. So until we get official word from Verizon themselves, I would hold off on making any real plans to buy this phone, and trust me, you will know when it’s official because we will post ‘confirmed’ in big block letters in our article’s tittle letting everyone know when it’s time to rejoice. Hopefully by then I will have a good head start and will be halfway to my local Verizon store to pick mine up before you do. (I kid, I kid)
Until then, take this with a grain of salt cause it may in fact be a fake, possibly, but not probably. You see, the dimensions are a bit off from Google’s official specs that are posted on the US variant’s webpage, but of course we all know how Best Buy likes to make critical errors when entering device information, so who knows. Just thought we should pass these details along.
