Amazon UK has vendor with Samsung GALAXY Nexus in stock November 7th for $930
According to Verizon's latest MAP listings, we expect to see the Samsung GALAXY Nexus launch in the States on November 10th. But if the listing for the phone spotted on Amazon's UK site is correct, we might see it released a few days earlier overseas and maybe-just maybe-in the U.S. as well. The listing comes from someone with the name "KingofGadgets" which might put a bit of a damper on this whole thing.

The version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus on the Amazon UK site is SIM free and unlocked which means in the U.S., it will be running over AT&T's 3G pipelines. The price is 539.99 GBP which is approximately $930 USD. Of course, if you are a Verizon customer, and have an update to burn, you will spend just $299.99 with a 2-year contract.

Forgetting the price-after all, how many Stateside buyers are going to be buying this unit from the "KingofGadgets"-the main point of interest here is the November 7th "in stock date". Yeah, Verizon's MAP date is only 3 days later, but when you have a new OS build staring you in the face with 4.65 inches of curved glass and 720p resolution, dual-core power of 1.2GHz from a TI OMAP 4460 and 1GB of RAM, well, every second waiting until the device is yours seems like 1 hour. And don't forget the 5MP camera on back capturing video at 1080p, and the 1.3MP shooter on front taking your own photo as well as letting you video chat. Time tends to move slowly when you are waiting for a hot device, and tends to move quickly when your battery indicator turns red.

I'm now concerned about that curved glass adding a stress point leading to easier breakage. Galaxy Nexus and Droid Razr are back to neck and neck for me.

Ahh... I can't wait till some actual consumer hands on reviews come in...

Curved designs tend to be stronger than straight ones. For example, check out the short best bridges in the world.

So £435 = $695. Which is to be expected for such a high-end handset.

At $700, it's the same price as in the US. $300 is the price on a 2 yr contract.
