We’ve heard reports previously that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus would be released on November 10th. These reports seemed a little optimistic, after word came that Clove will be releasing the device November 17th. Now it seems that U.S. based customers will have to wait even longer – possibly until after Black Friday.
Droid-Life managed to pick up an advertising schedule for Verizon. According to the screenshot, the big advertising push for Samsung’s “Holiday Portfolio” (including the Galaxy Nexus) will begin immediately after Black Friday. This tends to indicate the smartphone will be released more than a week after it’s available in European stores.
Of course, it’s possible that Verizon will start selling the device (at least pre-orders) before Black Friday. This is just a preview of when the big marketing push will begin. But for those hungry Android users out there, it looks like your best bet of getting a Galaxy Nexus early would be to order online from Europe (such as from Clove in the U.K.)
