A leaked Verizon marketing roadmap has given us a tentative time frame for the release of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus – the long awaited Google phone that will be the first to run the brand new Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

According to the document, the initial marketing push for the Galaxy Nexus is set to begin on Black Friday, or perhaps a little after Black Friday (the giant shopping day that falls the day after Thanksgiving). This time frame has been confirmed to Droid Life by “multiple sources.”

It appears that Verizon is going to kick off the marketing campaigns for the Droid RAZR and the HTC Rezound before the Galaxy Nexus, pointing to possible Black Friday (or earlier) launches for those devices. Check out the screenshot below:

So the Galaxy Nexus could launch on Black Friday, or possibly a little after. This is a little later than many would have hoped. When the phone was unveiled at the Samsung/ Google event in Hong Kong, a non-specific “November” release date was given – but I’m sure thst few thought it would be the very end of November.

Some leaked documents had pegged the U.S. release for as early as November 10th.

Last week, Samsung mobile announced via tweet that the Galaxy Nexus would be arriving in the U.K. on November 17th.

Are you planning on buying the Galaxy Nexus? Are you having a hard time staying patient? Let us know in the comments.
