Hmm. We are still waiting for any sort of official announcement from Verizon that this phone is actually launching this week, but at least they are dropping us a few small hints. Verizon has just released a “simulator” page that allows users to basically experience the Samsung Galaxy Nexus from within a browser. Yes this is neat — but I’d really just like the phone please.

With Big Red’s moment to make an announcement slowly disappearing this week we have been getting tips and reports that the device is still set to launch tomorrow, December 15th. We’ve also had a few tips suggesting Friday instead but obviously nothing is confirmed. We could see a silent launch with device being available at stores and retailers at the expected times but I can’t imagine them not going forward with any advertising — although it doesn’t have the word DROID in the title.

While we continue to tap our feet and patiently wait for Verizon to officially announce something users can be relieved to know that Verizon is at least getting ready. With this site going live and retail stores nationwide receiving shipments all week long the day is coming — we just sadly still don’t fully know when that day will be. Hopefully we’ll be running down to our nearest Verizon store tomorrow morning to pick one up. Either way we’ll know soon.

    I tried this for a while but I had to stop when I just had a bloodied stump where my foot used to be.

    A verizon representative contacted me today about an email i sent them asking about advertising, nexus release dates and such. They have no plans to release a firm date due to competitors possibly releasing their phones earlier/on same day…they will not be doing any press because google is, “handling promotions and controlling the release.”

    My Verizon store set up an appt with me for tomorrow for purchase of my phone. They also let me play with the demo. They couldn’t explain the lack of marketing for this device.

      With all the pent-up demand and pre-release hype, advertising won’t be necessary, at least at first. Early adopters will pay full price, however.

    is there no 16GB coming out?!

    • Verizon is 32GB.. who’s complaining?

    • Dr. Septimus Pretorius

      It would be nice to see the 16 GB version for $100 less…
