Talk about a short life cycle! Just launched by Telus this past January
, documents leaked from the Canadian carrier reveal that the Samsung GALAXY Nexus has been discontinued since May 16th
. On some level, this makes sense since the Samsung Galaxy S III is coming down the pike, but on the other hand the device was just launched on January 13th. And considering that the unit offers stock Android, why not keep in on the shelves for those who want the pure Google experience, at least until the next Nexus handset arrives?
Also found on the discontinued list is the Nokia Lumia 800 in magenta
. That model will say adios on June 17th, according to the document. Telus also offers the model in black and cyan which will be your only two choices in a few weeks. Other handsets of note found on the list include the 16GB Apple iPhone 4
and the white BlackBerry Curve 9360
