Samsung Galaxy Nexus to be launched in Australia this week
While we’re still waiting to find out when exactly the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be released in the US by Verizon, we’ve got news on the handset’s availability in Australia.
MobiCity, one of Australia’s largest phone retailers, currently says that the Galaxy Nexus’ expected launch date is November 24 – although it looks like the first batch of devices will arrive a day earlier, on November 23 (this Wednesday). You have to pay $799 if you want to pre-order the new Android Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone from MobiCity right now.
Kogan, another Australian retailer, has priced the Galaxy Nexus at $799, too. However, Kogan expects to have the smartphone in stock only starting November 30.
For the moment, no Australian carrier has announced any intentions to offer the new Nexus on contract.
