We still don't have a set release date for Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, but it looks like Verizon's planning a major marketing push for the phone from Black Friday weekend through at least December 19th — likely until 2012. According to a leaked roadmap from Droid-Life, who has a fairly strong track record when it comes to such things, the carrier will be focusing on HTC Rezound from around November 14th until Black Friday, after which it'll shift gears for Samsung's holiday portfolio with Galaxy Nexus — and all the while touting its "best network for Apple iPhone" (4 and 4S) message and the new Motorola portfolio including Droid RAZR.
That's quite a one-two punch for the pre-Christmas period, having both Google's flagship Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device and the really sleek RAZR hardware, so don't expect Verizon to shut up about it until the Next Best Android Phone comes along to take their place.
