The long awaited Samsung Galaxy Nexus was finally released yesterday on Verizon. There were rumors that it would come to Verizon before Ice Cream Sandwich was even announced. When ICS was announced back in October, carriers in Europe announced that they would have the pure Google phone. But for us in America, we had no official word on who would be carrying it.
There were more leaks then facts about the phone. There were lots of different internal documents from Verizon, Best Buy and lots of other stores that claimed a release date for the phone but most did not come true. But now that it has, it has become a extremely popular phone that caused Apple like lines outside Verizon stores.
But will there be a Galaxy Nexus for the rest of us on other carriers? Well there is good news for us. Our friends at TechnoBuffalo have received news that the Galaxy Nexus is only exclusive for Verizon for 60 days. At the ICS/Galaxy Nexus announcement, they spoke of an LTE and HSPA+ version. Plus earlier this month we say a AT&T radio band go through the FCC; so is it coming to AT&T first after Verizon? If this is true, CES would be a great time for AT&T to announce their availability.
Stay tuned to learn more about the availability of the Galaxy Nexus on AT&T and any other service provider!
