It's been a couple dates since the last rumored Galaxy Nexus launch date surfaced. But a couple of things have changed since then. First, we've heard through our sources that Verizon's finally picked a launch date. (Remember that the Nov. 11 memo we saw was a "work in progress.") Secondly, this one makes a little more sense.
Start with the Droid RAZR Nov. 11 date, which is official. (We'll overlook the lowercase branding whoopsie here.) The HTC Rezound (check out our hands-on) has already been made official at Nov. 14 -- also lining up with more unofficial chatter we'd heard. There's the Samsung Illusion -- a phone we've seen around since September -- on Nov. 17, but who knows how the hell a 3G-only Gingerbread device fits into things at this point. (Dilution, much?)
And, finally, we have the Galaxy Nexus, with a date of Nov. 21. That's still unofficial, mind you, and it's not yet known if you'll actually be able to walk out of a store with a phone, or if it'll be direct fulfill (aka ship it to you) instead.
Almost makes you miss the old Best Buy exclusive or Google Phone Store days, no? Anyhoo, we're one day closer to whenever this damn thing's going to launch.
(BTW: Looks like the Xoom 2 and Media Edition are headed to Big Red as well. How's about a 64GB version?)
Update: As TWong1200 points out, w/o probably means "week of." And we're getting more rumbles that the phone will in fact be available in stores, so that's a good thing.
