BY BRIAN BURGESS, aNewDomain.net: The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will ship in the UK and select European cities on November 17, 2011, Samsung execs confirm today.
The first Android 4,0 Gingerbread phone, it's got a dual core 1.2GHz CPU with 32GB of storage and 1GB RAM inside. Its Super AMOLED 720pixel 4.65-inch screen is enormous and gorgeous, by all accounts. But will you Apple iPhone loyalists even stop to check it out? You'll love 4G and LTE speeds.
That I guarantee.
I'll be updating this coverage with specs, comparisons and more in the next few hours and days. Good morning, UK, Europe, India, and Good Day Asia, Aus, NZ! Forty percent of our readers are on your side of the world! aNewDomain.net coming 11.11.11
There are some great views of the phone from Samsung. I hate running stock vendor art, but these are working look at. Notice the latest Sense ui interface, probably my favorite feature after the camera and screen res.
News comes fast and furiously. If you're already cloudy on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus specs announced October, here they are. Courtesy: Samsung
