Samsung Galaxy Nexus heading to Verizon according to promo video?
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has just been revealed as the first device to run on Google’s newest operating system, Android 4.0(Ice Cream Sandwich). Neither Google nor Samsung made any mention on which carrier this device will arrive to in the US. Samsung has created two different models of the Galaxy Nexus, an LTE model and a HSPA+ model.
Since it doesn’t support WiMax we can eliminate Sprint for the time being. An HSPA+ model could arrive at either AT&T or T-Mobile since both have an HSPA+ network. Meanwhile, Verizon has the biggest LTE network in the country, but AT&T also has a smaller LTE network that is currently being built up. Verizon is expected to have the Galaxy Nexus for an exclusive period of time after it passed on the Samsung Galaxy S II. We have just found more evidence that the Galaxy Nexus will be heading to Verizon thanks to the promo video of the device. In the video, you can see the Verizon Wireless logo on the notification menu.
Although there is some evidence that the device could be heading to Verizon, the fact that Samsung rescheduled the event to Hong Kong could mean that there is some trouble brewing between the two companies. We will keep you updated on the status of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
