Tomorrow was supposed to be the day when the next Google Nexus phone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Nexus Prime was going to be unveiled. But Samsung and Google decided to postpone that event out of respect for Steve Jobs’ passing, and they will supposedly announce a new date for an event in the near future. Obviously, speculation has already started, with some pegging the new event for October 27 in London. Whether or not it’s a good idea to announce a Verizon-exclusive device (many rumors pointed to that) in London remains to be seen. Or whether that will be just an international launch.
Either way, for those of you in the US, we may have some new info. Phandroid received a tip from “a trustworthy insider” that the Nexus Prime will be released by Verizon on November 3. That’s right, not announced, but in stores ready to be purchased. That’s certainly not a long time from now, so those of you who can’t wait to get a Nexus Prime will be very happy soon enough.
If this rumor is true, of course. Anyway, if the phone will go on sale on November 3, then it should be announced (obviously) earlier than that. So while Google and Samsung still haven’t set a solid new date for that announcement, it’s bound to be in the next few weeks. You can just feel the anticipation growing with every day that goes by.
