It looks like the U.S. will be "late to the party" getting the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The device just launched in Canada at Bell and Virgin Mobile, both of which are offering the device for $159.99 On-Contract, or $649.99 off-contract.
That's lovely... not only do the lucky Canadian's get it first, but they get it cheaper too! Aren't folks in the U.S. so fortunate that this was a Verizon exclusive... Be sure to visit our International Samsung Galaxy Nexus Forum for more discussions!
