Galaxy Nexus now available in the U.S.

Thursday, December 15, 2011 | 9:24 AM

Starting today, Galaxy Nexus by Samsung will be available in the U.S. on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Network. Visit google.com/nexus to buy it online, or go to your nearest Verizon Wireless, Best Buy, Costco or Radio Shack store. Galaxy Nexus is also available through our carrier partners in Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Korea and Japan. Soon, it will be available in Australia, France, Russia, India, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and elsewhere!

Galaxy Nexus is the first phone with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and combines the latest Google software with cutting-edge Samsung hardware. With a super slim profile, Galaxy Nexus features a 4.65” Contour Display with a true high definition (720p) resolution HD Super AMOLED screen. Galaxy Nexus also features a lightning-fast dual-core 1.2GHz processor combined with 4G LTE or HSPA+ technology. To see Galaxy Nexus in action, check out this video:

Paired with Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest Android software, Galaxy Nexus is simple and beautiful. WIth innovations like Android Beam, a camera with fun Live Effects and zero-shutter lag for instant photo capturing, a deeply integrated Google+ experience, and a new People app, Galaxy Nexus is beyond smart. Galaxy Nexus is also the first device to feature Face Unlock, which uses state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to unlock your phone.

GSM version for us in the USA?

Nick B said...

I would love to hear from Google's PR as to why they're holding back on this, as well. I know I can order one from Virgin in Canada or a few other sites for more money, but if this is a Google-contracted phone built by Samsung, why wouldn't Google (or Samsung) offer the retail unlocked version to the general public, as well?

Google seems to be an advocate of an open internet, but seems to bow to the wireless carriers in the US when it comes to their cell phones.

Anyone from Google care to comment? Even an answer of "Verizon partially financially supported the design of this phone" would be fine. I would consider it a show of respect to at least know the answer, even if I don't agree with the reasoning.

No GSM version?

AC said...

I'll "+1" the questions for GSM, mainly just wondering if the HSPA+ version is coming to T-Mobile and AT&T at some point in the future when Verizon's exclusive period runs out.

But, the other question is--did Google lose the battle with Verizon on Google Wallet?

Vonson said...

+1 on getting a Google rep to comment on what is going on. So many secrets, so many disgruntled Google/Android fans... I for one won't switch carries just for a phone...

I really want to get a Galaxy Nexus, but the whole Verizon ISIS NFC debacle is making me hold onto my $ for now.

I could buy it, root it, and put a custom rom on it to get the functionality, but then what's the point of having a "pure" Google device?

I would love to have.

I often travel to Europe and I'd like to know if this phone works there too. I assume not, since it doesn't on the T-mobile and ATT networks here.

Moreover, I don't get the reasoning of Verizon's plans. If I buy it with 2-year contract or month-to-month, the plan costs the same, while the phone more than doubles!

If I pay the cost of the phone upfront (which I'd be will to do, especially if it works in Europe), I expect to pay LESS in monthly payment, since they are not subsiding my purchase. With this price policy, I'm holding my breath and won't buy.

Don't want a sorta Nexus. Thanks for screwing it up Verizon. You are a carrier NOT a developer Verizon.

All I want for Christmas is Google to start supporting the open internet, starting with offering unlocked versions of their phones. I understand it costs money to make, and that the customers will be charged an outrageous amount of cash, but still...

danileo said...

I have this phone for two weeks now and i'm really glad that this was my choice. I spent a lot of time checking reviews and playing with all the available smartphones but this is the best, maybe better than iPhone (though i was interested only in Android OS phones). And it seems like Galaxy Nexus is the best phone for 2012, at least till CES.

The Samsung Galaxy S is an Android smartphone that was announced by Samsung in March 2010. It features a 1 GHz ARM "Hummingbird" processor, 8–16 GB internal Flash memory, a 4-inch 480×800 pixel Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, Wi-Fi connectivity, a 5-megapixel camera with a maximum resolution of 2560x1920 and, on select models, a front-facing 0.3 MP VGA camera (640x480). The base version of the phone, the GT-I9000, was quickly followed by variant models for the US carriers such as the Epic 4G, Vibrant, Captivate, Fascinate, and Mesmerize.
