Verizon Officially Confirms Plans To Carry Galaxy Nexus

When discussing the possibilities of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus coming to Sprint, we also mentioned some of the lingering uncertainties surrounding its launch on Verizon LTE. While that seemed like a lock at first, even with claims that it would be a carrier exclusive, we didn’t get confirmation at the phone’s launch event, and communications from Samsung this week haven’t helped to clear things up any. We’re still left with questions, but today Verizon at last officially announced its intent to offer the Galaxy Nexus on its 4G LTE network.

Unfortunately, Verizon doesn’t mention anything about an exclusive, nor any specific release date, so those questions are left up-in-the-air. What this does amount to is confirmation that the carrier will at least be among launch-day carriers. It seemed pretty certain that this would be the case, especially with the discovery earlier this week of an image of the Galaxy Nexus featuring Verizon’s 4G LTE logo (it was the phone used for the time-lapse beach demos for the launch event), but the fact that Verizon had yet to make its own statement was starting to get some folks worried. Now, they can breathe a sigh of relief.
