Samsung Confirms Galaxy Nexus Hitting U.S. in December
Current rumors place the Galaxy Nexus’ release date some time within the remaining days of November. But, Samsung apparently confirmed to Business Insider that the Galaxy Nexus will be reaching the U.S. in December instead of November. Another source, CNET, received an email from Verizon regarding the device’s availability in the U.S. later this year.
CNET added that this could mean release later this month, as initially announced. However, the site noted that the possibility is not likely since November is already coming to an end.
Another sign of the December launch is a recently leaked marketing scheme schedule from an unnamed source. Written in the schedule is the December 8 national launch of the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon. The report also detailed that delivery of demo units and accessories to stores will be done before launch date.
One rumored possible explanation for the confusing rumors about the release date is Verizon’s difficulty in acquiring Technical Acceptance, which means the final software has to be certified by appropriate authorities. Others speculate that the lag time may be to avoid many bugs in the system, such as those discovered in the U.K. GSM version.
The Galaxy Nexus has already been released in the U.K, and the release in Canada also has a more-or-less non-fluctuating release date.
Anyone getting impatient at the delay in releasing the Galaxy Nexus in the U.S.?
