While we await the October 19th unveiling for Ice Cream Sandwich and the new Nexus phone that goes with it, leaks about the Verizon version have coalesced around the "Galaxy Nexus" name. Most recently, it cropped up in a screen shot from Verizon's Device Management system leaked to Droid Life, which also suggests that it will sport 4G LTE. That same system also has the HTC Rezound, the rumored retail name for the Vigor, appearing with 4G LTE and a hint that it could be a world phone as well.

Both phones also appeared in a leak of Verizon's latest "Minimum Advertised Price" list, also to Droid Life. Each was listed with a MAP of $299.99 in the period between November 10th, 2011 and May 10th, 2012. MAP lists have usually been a fairly good indicators of both pricing and approximate release dates, but it's not unheard of to see last minute decisions render them moot.

After the sudden decision to postpone the Galaxy Nexus announcement, we have to admit that we've had our fill of last minute decisions. Hopefully we can expect a November launch for both it and Ice Cream Sandwich. Meanwhile, there's no word, rumored or otherwise, on when we will see an announcement for the HTC Rezound.
