Verizon Wireless Issues Fluff Statement To Employees On Galaxy Nexus Still No Official Date

On Thursday we (along with Russell Holly at Geek.com) broke the story that Verizon Wireless had received store stock of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. We heard for a brief second last night that the Galaxy Nexus may come out today, but after vetting that turned out to be false.

Mums been the word from Verizon Wireless, a strategy that keeps them out of hot water with Android enthusiasts. In case you weren’t aware Verizon Wireless isn’t late, they have only said that the phone would arrive before the end of the year and as of yet I haven’t seen Seacrest drop the big apple.

More after the break

To curb their fiesty and customer focused employees enthusiasm for the Android 4.0 flagship device, theverge.com has obtained this statement that Verizon released internally

“Rigorous device testing is part of our commitment to our customers. Verizon will not release a device until our highest standards have been met. We’ll announce the launch of the Galaxy Nexus by Samsung as soon as it’s available.”

But wait.. there’s more…

Of course Verizon Wireless wants to test, retest and test again we know they do this with every phone however if you remember this story from Thursday, the store stock is shipped are stores going to have to send these phones back if their rigorous testing finds something not too kosher? Or is there something else going on?

  1. I think they’re waiting for their Double Data promotion to end so they don’t have to sell you this kick ass phone with all that free data.

  2. Simple – They were fixing a software bug, and holding the device.  It was planned for release on the 9th, but the LTE network went down.  Verizon did not want to launch a phone and have people think it did not work.  “Were is my 4G?” so they held it.   Now the network went up on Thrusday afternoon.  At that point, it was going to be a pain to restart the launch.  So they held it to until next Thursday. They traditional launch day for new phones.

  3. Ugh… somebody please stick something sharp and spiky up the ass of whoever keeps delaying this phone. Nobody wants the RAZR!

  4. Yesterday a VZW store let me play with one (they had plenty in stock he said). He said they got then last week, but can sell them yet. He told me Thursday the 15th I could come back and get it.

  5. A Best Buy guy told me yesterday they had the phones in stock, but couldn’t sell.  Further, he said that the phones would get an automatic update on activation thus allowing the “fix” to be implemented without sending any phones back.  In reality, I have no idea if this is true or not. 

  6. Might want to take a look at this article on XDA http://www.xda-developers.com/android/is-the-galaxy-nexus-still-a-nexus/
