We are not sure what Verizon Wireless is doing. They were expected to launch Galaxy Nexus on their network last month. It did not happen.
Then they were expected to launch it earlier this month. Did not happen. The most recent rumored launch date was December 9 and even that did not happen.
The latest reports claim that the launch is scheduled for December 15. Verizon has officially not revealed any dates even now.
They are the only mobile operator in the US market to have confirmed the launch of Galax Nexus on their network.
Sources say that they have exclusivity over the device for a period of time. That means that no other operator would be able to launch it before Verizon launches it first.
