Samsung has hit back at rumours that thehad been delayed until December, today confirming that the 4.65-inch smart phone is on track for its 17 November release.
"Samsung can confirm that the UK launch date for the Galaxy Nexus is the 17th November." the South Korean tech giant told us, in a statement as brief as it is heartening.
It was whispered that the Galaxy Nexus had been delayed, thanks to an Amazon.co.uk listing that pegged the new mobile as dropping on 2 December.
That listing is still live, so it's possible that while the Galaxy Nexus will be available in Blighty on 17 November, Amazon won't be getting it until a little later. We'll be keeping a close eye on that listing to see if it changes to Samsung's earlier date.
Samsung can't afford to let the Galaxy Nexus' release date slide. This massive phone will be the first to launch running, the latest version of Google's operating system, and it needs to get it into shops quickly to compete with and the looming threat of , both of which have spangly new versions out as well.
We've gone hands-on with the Galaxy Nexus already, and it looks like a tempting bit of kit.for the skinny.
