Verizon's Galaxy Nexus Sees High Demand at Launch

The Galaxy Nexus only went on sale Thursday, but already there are reports that the phone is out of stock at some Verizon stores. According to Android and Me founder Taylor Wimberly, his local Verizon branch ran out of stock just hours after the phone went on sale. BGR is also reporting high-demand for the phone on launch day, with people actually lining up outside the store in Washington D.C. This comes just one week after Samsung released a number of commercials poking fun at Apple fans that line up for the launch of a new iPhone. However, something tells us Samsung won't mind eating its own words in this instance.

If you do happen to get turned away because of stock issues, there are a number of places selling the Galaxy Nexus besides Verizon. Best Buy has  some (and is apparently eager to sell them), as well as Costco. You should also check out Amazon. Though you might have to wait a few days for the etail giant to ship the phone to you, it's currently selling the phone for $150 on a two year contract, half the price that Verizon is offering.

  • Theres probably a different reason they are all out of stock. Mainly that its got a lot of problems. I'm on my second galaxy nexus.. The first one went into an endless booting loop. I found out that if you have your wireless turned on and your connected to a known AP then leave the range of it. The phone will crash and constantly reboot until you enter known AP's range. Multi touch is broken, the signal is fairly weak, and GPS keeps dropping. I'd say wait till google gets their shit straight instead of releasing something so broken.. Btw I've only own android devices and I loved my previous two but this thing came out broken on Verizon. I'm starting to see why it took so long to release it..
  • I'd really love to replace the phone I've got and that Amazon deal is unbeatable......but I'm so used to paying $40 a month for Virgin mobile I don't think I could ever go back to a contract. Sure my phone reboots constantly and is as powerful as my microwave, but its cheap lol
