After the Galaxy Nexus showed up on Amazon UK for £550 (US$745) without any commitment or contract, we got a little excited. Despite the high price tag, this showed us that the Galaxy Nexus would be here soon enough.
Although originally, the price tag was high and the shipping date was early, the tides have completely shifted and flip-flopped on us all for the worst. Or, is it for the better? To be exact, it’s a bittersweet update to the Galaxy Nexus release. On the good side, the price has been dropped all the way down to US$700 (£519.99). However, escorting the price drop, a big shipping delay. Now, instead of shipping out on November 17, the Galaxy Nexus will make it to your door step on December 2.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be the first smartphone to run on Google’s latest operating system, Android 4.0 code named “Ice Cream Sandwich,” and will arrive with a preinstalled NFC chip and Google Wallet services. It also packs a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, 1.2-GHz dual core processor, and built-in 16 GB storage capacity.
