There has been a lot of speculation regarding the release date of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus since it was first announced a few weeks ago. The date has changed a few times already in the US with various reports claiming to be after Black Friday, with others saying sooner. Now we have some worrying news for those of you waiting for the device, as the UK Samsung Galaxy Nexus release is delayed so could there be problems with ICS?
According to the team over at Phandroid the device ship date for online retailer Amazon has slipped back to December 2nd. The official date for the device in the UK has been set for November 17th, and this could just be problems with Amazon getting enough stock. Samsung have not said anything about the official date being changed yet, but the date change by Amazon doesn’t look good.
If the date does change for all suppliers of the device it will be disappointing news for many interested consumers. Although a six week wait for the device after its launch isn’t as long as some other handsets have taken to come out. The handset is set to be the first to run Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, and it makes you wonder if there could be a hitch with this.
US customers are still left up in the air regarding a release date or even how long the device will be exclusive to Verizon Wireless. The on contract price is believed to be $299 but it would be nice to get some official word on the Galaxy Nexus. So if you have already preordered the device on Amazon looks like you will have to wait longer than was first thought.
