Looks like all the waiting has drummed up quite a bit of interest.
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.
