The Galaxy Nexus Is Coming To Rogers And Telus In Canada On January 13th

While Canadian carriers Virgin and Bell have had Google's newest flagship phone gracing their shelves since December 8th of last year (that makes it sound so long ago, doesn't it?), competitors Rogers and Telus are finally getting their piece of the Nexus pie on January 13th.

There is no word on pricing at this point, but the competition launched the device for around CA$160 on a three-year agreement, so we expect the above mentioned duo to come out of the gate with similar pricing.

[Rumor] Verizon's Galaxy Nexus May Not Be Available On December 9th After All

Ready to add another rumor to the pile surrounding the US Galaxy Nexus release date? No? I don't blame you. Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do to stop this whirlwind of release date madness.

We've been hearing December 9th as the final release date for the Galaxy Nexus on Big Red for several days now; heck, an orgy of proof showed up yesterday that all but confirmed it - or so we thought. Now we're hearing that 12/9 isn't the day after all. No one is sure what's actually going on, but we can say that we're not alone - a slew of other sites are hearing the same thing.

Galaxy Nexus Units Start Showing Up At Verizon Wireless, Release Imminent

 

Good news for everyone waiting for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon: Galaxy Nexus units have started showing up at Verizon stores. This can mean only one thing - release is imminent. We've been waiting long enough for any details about the GN's US release, so without further ado, the goods:

As you can see, the packaging is about as clean as it gets - a solid white box, suggesting these are just training units. The sexy red innards with that big beautiful phone inside is definitely what we're all interested in anyway.

While we now know that VZW stores are getting test units, the last piece of the puzzle is still a mystery.

[Video] Concerned Because The Galaxy Nexus Doesn't Have Gorilla Glass? Don't Be

When it was confirmed that the Galaxy Nexus doesn't have Gorilla Glass, it was as if the entire world into some sort of I'm going to scratch the hell out of it hysteria. It turns out that all the kerfuffle was for nothing, as one Galaxy Nexus owner decided to put that big beautiful screen to the test.

I admit, it was a little painful to watch, but the end result was nothing less than spectacular. It turns out that Gorilla Glass isn't the only durable glass available for smartphones after all.

Now, do you feel better about the durability and scratch-resistance of the GN's screen?

Will The Verizon Galaxy Nexus Be Available Beginning November 17th?

The rumor mill is going nuts with release dates for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, and now we can add one more to the list. We already know that the European version of the device will be available on November 17th, and, according to an uncompleted internal Verizon document nabbed by Android Central, it looks like Verizon may be joining the global revolution on the same day.

There is absolutely nothing that screams confirmed! about this, so just take it at face value for the time being. I'm sure Big Red will make an official announcement as soon as they have a solid date in the crosshairs.

Verizon Holiday Roadmap Leaked, Samsung Galaxy Nexus Shows Up Just After Black Friday

After the Galaxy Nexus announcement, there was one question still rolling around unanswered: when is it going to be released? While that question has been answered for our brothers and sisters across the pond, those of us here in the US have been left without a word from Verizon (or anyone else, for that matter). Of course, we have heard dozens of rumors, but nothing with any proof to back it up. That all changes now, though, as Verizon's Holiday Roadmap has gracefully fallen into the hands of Droid-Life.

It's pretty clear-cut, and most of the devices on the list we already know about; so, let's get to the point.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Not Exclusive To Verizon After All?

How long have we been hearing that the Galaxy Nexus would be exclusive to Verizon? Quite a while -- probably since rumors of the "Nexus Prime" first started surfacing. It looks like those rumors have been around so long that Verizon itself started to believe it, too... until they were told it wasn't true.

Verizon-Wireless-SGN

Last night, Big Red threw an exclusive tag on Galaxy Nexus banners floating around on its site. Today, however, that specific tag seems to have vanished into thin air. Was it Halloween trickery? Alien abduction? Or perhaps a hint that Verizon won't be the only US carrier carrying the GN?
