Verizon Galaxy Nexus (Prime) launching in December – Samsung confirms
Samsung has reportedly confirmed that the Galaxy Nexus – the world’s first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device – will not be released in the US this month.
According to Business Insider, Samsung stated that the Galaxy Nexus will become available via Verizon Wireless “in December.” Hopefully, the company talks about early December – we’ve previously heard that December 8 is a possible launch date. We’ve also heard that Verizon might offer the handset under the name of Samsung Nexus Prime, but that’s yet to be confirmed.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been already launched in the UK (last week) – where it’s available both unlocked, and via network operators like O2 and Three. The new superphone will also be officially out in Canada on December 8 (via Bell and Virgin Mobile), so maybe Samsung thought it would be a good idea to release it at the same time in the US. I’m pretty sure there will be many customers quite disappointed about this.
