After repeated delays and a Google Wallet controversy, Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) is finally taking orders for Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy Nexus, originally meant to be the flagship Android phone for the holiday season. Texas Instruments (TXN) has to be pleased the Nexus is finally available, and so must Google (GOOG), given widespread reports of strong U.S. iPhone sales. (previously)

    I feel like they kinda dropped the ball on this one. There was a fair bit of hype around the Nexus a month or two ago. Not so much anymore, good reviews though.

     

    I think they could have gained quite a bit by getting the thing out the door closer to the "disappointing" iPhone 5 non-event.

     

    Also, the already crowded Android phone world is getting kinda ridiculous lately. Verizon can't decide which phone they want to push. They advertise the RAZR, Bionic and Charge as if each is the best thing ever, simultaneously.

    Agree. Having the Nexus available ahead of Black Friday would've made a difference. Especially since Samsung has been spending heavily on advertising for its phone lineup.

    I actually picked up a jail broken Galaxy Nexus (had it since last Friday) that is compatible with the t-mobile provider. I love the new OS, it is very user friendly. I had the original Nexus as well. I am a huge fan of the Nexus line.
