According to TheVerge, it looks like there is a flyer that has the release dates for the LG Viper and the Galaxy Nexus. The LG Viper is still staying put for Apr 15 but now the Galaxy Nexus is pushed back one week to Apr 22. I guess maybe Sprint thought they wanted to give the LG Viper at least a week head start to gain some sales. I don't think its going to make much of a difference given the popularity of the Galaxy Nexus.

Is it possible that Sprint will still release the GNex on the 15th, but it won't see authorized resellers until a week later? Sprint may want to drive sales at their corporate stores. This is a memo for Sams Club...

I agree, Good indicator that it's at least ready to debut and Sam's Club will get it later in the week.

Hopefully that is true that it sticks with the 15th and that will definitely validate the nice info Robert has received.

I still see it as validation either way...April 15th or 22nd. Scott, AJ and I saw the source info. We know it is legit from Sprint. So we know that if it ends up being the GNex on the 22nd, it's a slip. We see schedules slip for device releases all the time, especially from Verizon. To be on it by a week, that's accurate to me. And we called it before anyone else did.

 

If the Viper holds the 15th, then I will be smiling from ear to ear. I feel pretty darn good, already. But I have to admit, I'd feel even better if it did come out on the 15th to corporate stores.

 

I think Sprint will announce right after their HTC event this week. They don't want to upstage their HTC event.

I guess you'll be smiling then.

Looks like the Sprint Galaxy Nexus training material is coming out today for Sprint employees. Also if you look at the "Update" section in the article below it looks like it confirms Robert's article about LTE turned off by default. Nice to hear the internal docs are coming to fruition.

 

Update: We've since stumbled upon a full slide deck of the training guide, and while there's nothing too surprising here, we are seeing that early units will ship with LTE turned off by default, though the company will change that at an undetermined time in the future. Call us crazy, but it sounds like Sprint may start hawking these prior to its LTE network being fully active.
