Since the device’s official US launch back on November 14th, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge has been available on three out of the four major US carriers, leaving those on Verizon Wireless in the dark. If you’re a fan of one of the more unique smartphone designs from the past year, you’ll be happy to know that Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge is finally heading to Verizon Wireless this Thursday, January 8th. There’s no word on Verizon’s pricing, but expect this device to fall in line with other carrier pricing, taking a huge dent out of your wallet. Sprint currently has the Note Edge up for grabs with a 2-year contract at $429, T-Mobile is $870 off contract, and AT&T comes in at $399 with a 2-year agreement.

Please keep in mind that dates do change at the last minute and nothing is confirmed until we hear so directly from Verizon. That said, as it stands now, January 8th is looking pretty good.
Our tipster provided us with another juicy tidbit of Verizon information, sans mandatory blurry image though. According to sources in the know at Verizon Wireless, Google’s Nexus 6 won’t be launching until mid-February. If waiting another month and a half doesn’t make you a happy camper, it’s worth mentioning that the Nexus 6 does currently work on Verizon Wireless, you just have to pop an already activated SIM into your phone, and you’re ready to go. Having the latest from Google officially supported by Verizon does make activating the device a bit easier for new accounts and Verizon customers can also save hundreds of dollars by purchasing a Nexus 6 with a contract.
