Verizon Galaxy Nexus shows up in online ads for $199; you still can't buy one

Talk about a tease! A tantalizing Verizon advertisement has been popping up all over the web showing the much anticipated Galaxy Nexus — and if that wasn’t enough — the ad prices the Galaxy Nexus at $199! Unfortunately clicking on the ad to ‘learn more’ takes you to the Verizon site where the Galaxy Nexus is nowhere to be found. On the flip side, it’s been pointed out that the url tag contains a possible 11/29 date reference, but as we all know, that can mean anything.

So what exactly is going on here? We’re not positive but let’s take a look at this optimistically for a change. Perhaps the ad was pushed out ahead of schedule but contains completely accurate information. Maybe we will see the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus go on sale this Tuesday for the great price of $199. Let’s get our hopes up even more by assuming this price is for the 32GB version of the Galaxy Nexus. If the above speculation is true, there are going to be a lot of happy fanboys (including myself) out there that will forget all about the Verizon delay. What do you guys think? Are you seeing this ad half full or half empty?
