We're still firmly filing this one in the "unconfirmed" category, but the screen you see above supposedly is a "work in progress" of what's about to go out to Verizon stores. And it pretty much looks like we could be looking at a Nov. 17 availability (and Nov. 15 in-store marketing) for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which would bring Big Red in line with the rest of the world.
We're going to remain a bit dubious until we get word from Verizon itself, and our source says it's "been told the document pictured is a work in progress that will be sent out next week to all retail stores/partners along with promotional materials such as posters and flyers." So we'll see if the document is the work in progress, or the date, or what. And it's always possible this is just a friend of a friend messing with people (hey, it happens). But it does make more sense than waiting past the Black Friday holiday, don't it?
Internet service providers are all different, yet all the same. Generally, the performance matches what you pay for and it is reliable. While all services have outages from time to time, but when your internet is dependent on cellular coverage a lot of question marks start forming. T-Mobile Home Internet is lives and dies by the network coverage, which makes its performance hit and miss.
Apple is finally updating the Apple TV 4K with a new chip and a desperately-needed remote upgrade, but it's too pricey, and too late compared to the Chromecast with Google TV. Google TV may still have a few bugs, but Apple's new box is way too expensive to put up a good fight.
