Samsung Galaxy Nexus UK launch confirmed for Nov 17th
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first handset to come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but it's also its huge 4.65” display with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels that excite us. And now we have one more piece to the Nexus launch puzzle – its UK release date. The Galaxy Nexus will land on British land on Thursday, November 17th and will be sold through various retailers.

Those include the Carphone Warehouse, Vodafone, O2 and Three where the handset will be priced at nearly $880 (£549) off contract or at $72 (£45) a month with a contract.

“The level of interest and anticipation surrounding the release of the Galaxy Nexus has been fantastic. … We’re delighted to introduce the Galaxy Nexus to the UK and are looking forward to seeing it in the shops on 17th of November,” Samsung's UK and Ireland head of mobile, Simon Stanford said.

The handset sports a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a 5-megapixel camera capable of recording video in 1080p. All of this is packaged in a pretty thin body, measuring just 0.35” (8.94mm).

That is the price. For the UK and the 1% of the US able to pay that ridiculous amount for a Nexus. It won't launch for in the US for $880, more like $549 or $599 off contract.

thats because europe and the britts have that rediculous VAT tax that jacks the price of everything so high.

That's right, I forgot about that. That would make the phone like $730 in the US, if you subtract the 20% VAT. LAME!

I was really hoping it would be less, the PS3 wasn't even that much when it launched at $600! The prices of these phones have inflated far beyond their actual worth. There's just no way the Nexus costs Google/Samsung any more than $300/each to produce.
