Galaxy Nexus gets a rumored European release start
SamFirmware, a news site that specializes in Samsung leaks and a source which has had reliable information in the past, has said that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will start rolling out across Europe on November 17th. So far, we know that O2 will be a partner for this launch in the UK, but we haven't gotten word what other carriers will be getting the device, or what countries.
Still, you can mark it on your calendars, November 17th: the day Ice Cream Sandwich hits Europe. Meanwhile, those of us in the US will just keep arguing over whether or not Verizon will have an exclusive on the phone.

Do phones sometimes come out in the US before they hit the UK...??? Nov 10 < Nov 17... pre-order date?

this may be a dumb question but why do all the phones come out in Europe first?

because if its fails in EU it will fail everywhere else.

android is american made by google, i think android phones ESPECIALLY one unveiled from google (and samsung) should be released in the us first.

Google may be American, but Samsung is Korean, so they're splitting the difference with the EU first

It's the regulations and carriers that slow everything down a carrier has to buy the phone send to FCC to pass tests then the carrier changes the OS and adds its bloatware then we get to buy them 6-8 months after they hit europe one plus is sometime the phones are updated bugs fixed ect but this is rare
Oh yeah here is the release dates for all europe and carriers for the nexus and Galaxy note
