Unlocked Samsung Galaxy Nexus delayed in the UK ’till next week
Yesterday, both Clove and Three were saying that they would launch the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the UK before the end of this week. Today, however, they’re saying that the new superphone – the world’s first to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich – will actually not become available until next week.
Clove was supposed to launch the Galaxy Nexus (unlocked) on November 17, but now it announced that the first stock is expected to arrive on November 23.
As for Three, the network has informed those who’ve pre-ordered the new handset that “due to stock delays your delivery has changed to 22/11.” Even so, according to this tweet, retail stores should still “have stock on the 18th”, although they “cannot 100% confirm this yet.”
The news on the delay for the UK market comes at about the same time with a rumor implying that Verizon has also delayed the Galaxy Nexus in the US until December.
