Leaked Verizon docs show Galaxy Nexus with possible post-Black Friday launch, LG Spectrum with 4GAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Verizon has stayed mum on when it'll be launching the Samsung Galaxy Nexus save for a vague "later this year," but if a newly-leaked Big Red document is to be believed, the GalNex may not be landing until after Black Friday (November 25th). As you can see in the handy timeline up above, Verizon is planning to push its "Samsung Holiday Portfolio (With Galaxy Nexus)" beginning after Black Friday weekend. Obviously there's always a chance that Verizon could still launch the GalNex before the weekend of BF and wait to begin heavily promoting it, though, so don't fret too much just yet.
Continuing with the Verizon leak fun, our pals at VZBuzz have heard that the HTC Rezound could be launching on November 14th. Yes, that's a Monday and yes, Verizon typically launches phones on Thursdays. But with the phone being unveiled this Thursday (3rd), the DROID RAZR launching the following Thursday (10th), and then Thanksgiving on the 24th, a launch on the 14th would give the Rezound plenty of time on the shelves before the holiday without going head-to-head with the RAZR on the 10th. Plus, the Rezound portion of the timeline above starts on the 14th, so there's that. It also only lasts two weeks, which is kind of a bummer for the Rezound.
The final Verizon rumor we've got for you today concerns an LG-made device known as the Spectrum. As evidenced by the image below, the mysterious product has appeared in Verizon's system and is packing 4G connectivity and global support. Outside of that there's not much else we can glean about the Spectrum.
So there you have it. I'm sure that there will be quite a few disappointed Verizon customers if Big Red does indeed wait until after Black Friday to unleash the Galaxy Nexus, but with so many high-end devices coming out in such a short period of time, such a move wouldn't come as a total shock. Of course, nothing's official still we get it straight from the folks in red, so stay tuned for more. If the GalNex is released post-Black Friday, though, at least that gives us more time to save up our pennies, right?
