Samsung GALAXY Nexus to launch December 8th in Canada; pre-orders start today

Samsung GALAXY Nexus to launch December 8th in Canada; pre-orders start today
Reports that the Samsung GALAXY Nexus is going to launch December 8th are right on the money. That is, if you live in Canada. Of course, in the U.S. a number of dates have been bandied about with December 8th being one of them. The first Ice Cream Sandwich flavored phone (sounds delicious, doesn't it?) will be available north of the border from Bell, which is charging $160 with a signed three year contract. The carrier is accepting pre-orders for the device starting today.

Bell is using a "Twitter line" that will be open from 10 am to 10 pm Eastern time on December 1st. The first 100 people on the line will be guaranteed the opportunity to buy the phone and have it shipped on December 8th. But those who take part in this experiment (for lack of a better word) will have to tweet out a promotional message for the phone every hour from 10 to 10 on the first of next month in order to keep their place in line. Those who can't be bothered to sit in front of a keyboard all day can simply place their preorder for the phone. The advantage for using the "Twitter line" is that you can be locked in as one of the first 100 in Canada to receive the phone.
