Samsung Galaxy Nexus Will Launch On December 8th In Canada

Looks like Canada has something to look for in the next few weeks. Mobile carrier Bell has just announced they will launch Google’s new gem on December 8th for a mere $159.95 on a three-year contract. Virgin Mobile also confirmed they will launch the phone on December 8th for $159.99. Now wait a minute, doesn’t this date sound a little familiar? It should look familiar as we recently pointed out just three days ago that Verizon seems to be releasing the phone on the same date as well. Perhaps Google wants a simultaneous North American launch of the phone? Maybe. You can find the full presser after the break.


“Galaxy Nexus superphone by Samsung will be available exclusively from Bell Mobility and Virgin Mobile Canada this holiday season – starting December 8.

    Of course Verizon is late to the party…….. too bad another network cannot come close to competing coverage wise.
