Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus
is coming soon and the latest inside scoop from third-party retailer Negri Electronics pin-points the exact date to December 9th. Previously, we’ve heard various other sources agree on an official release
slated for December 8th or 9th.
“Based on the information we were given by OUR contact at #Verizon, we are set to have stock on 12/9. We will update here when we know more,” US-based Negri Electronics tweeted.
The Verizon-branded Samsung Galaxy Nexus is now up for pre-order
on the website of Negri Electronics for $678.50. The retailer also confirmed that Big Red will have the first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handset on December 8th.
The Galaxy Nexus comes with a huge 4.65-inch display with a resolution of the impressive 720x1280 pixels. It was greeted with mostly positive reviews by the tech community as it brings a needed polish and coherence to Android. The only slight drawback most reviews mention is the somewhat inconsistent camera performance. The handset features a 5-megapixel shooter on the back capable of recording 1080p videos.
