Galaxy Nexus to ship 'everywhere' on Monday
(Update: not worldwide) Google has just informed The Verge that the Galaxy Nexus will be "pretty much everywhere" beginning Monday, November 21. This likely means a launch in Canada and the US among other countries, making North Americans wait an extra weekend compared to UK buyers. The UK version is LTE-less, just like the Canadian version, while the US phone will have an LTE radio onboard.
Some UK carriers are only taking pre-orders for the handset, and only one Phones4U store actually carried the device in the UK. Vodafone, O2, and Three will get their shipments in over the next couple of days, likely having in-stock examples on Monday or early next week.
The Oxford Street Phones4U store offered the device for free when paired with a £41 (about $65) per month plan and associated contract. The first 100 buyers also got up to a £250 (nearly $400) voucher for movies and music for the device.
Update: A clarification reveals that "everywhere" referred to the UK, not worldwide. Canada and possibly the US may not see the Galaxy Nexus until early December.
