    If they are copying this story:
    oogle's big, bold, and beautiful new Android phone is today being released in the UK. The Samsung-built Galaxy Nexus was announced to be launching on November 17th a couple of weeks ago, but some carriers and retailers have since had to bump back their release date for it. Never fear, though, the official Google Nexus Twitter account informs us Phones4U will have the Android 4.0 smartphone in stock at 8AM today, with Vodafone, O2, and Three getting their shipments in at the same time or a few days later. Naturally, we're only talking about the GSM, non-LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus with this UK launch, though the LTE-equipped variety should be making its way stateside right about now so as to complete its highly anticipated debut on Google's home turf. As it turns out, the Oxford Street Phones4U store will be the only one to have the Galaxy Nexus on launch day today, but O2 and the other carriers are taking orders now and will be able to ship one to you very soon indeed. You know, in case you don't want to encourage this silly practice of exclusive single-store launches. Google tells us the Galaxy Nexus will be available "pretty much everywhere" from Monday, November 21st.


    They seem to be referring to the UK meaning that the one store will not be the only one carrying them :blink: I hope I'm wrong.. but it's linked through them.

    I agree, it looks like they brought up the LTE version, but went back to talking about the UK version, so it is unclear if they were talking about it being "everywhere" in the UK or everywhere in the world.

    With that being said, there have been a few more murmurs of a Monday launch this morning and lest we forget that the Google contest ends next Monday.

    If you do some searchs for black friday deals or use some keywords, there are several links that all say the phone should come out on the 21st.

    Yeah reports are cropping up more and more, new and old, that say "w/o 21th" I mean 21st... :) W/o being week of. But regardless, whether it's the 21st or not, next week sometime is looking pretty good when you put it all together.
