Galaxy Nexus Sale in Canada, Still No U.S. Release Date

The Galaxy Nexus and Google’s Android Ice Cream Sandwich have finally arrived in North America but not in the U.S.

Last Thursday, Android fans in Canada were able to purchase Samsung’s new Galaxy Nexus smartphone as it launched on Canadian carriers Bell for $159.95 and Virgin Mobile for $159.99, along with each company’s respective data plan.

Unfortunatly for many, the Galaxy Nexus does not yet have a release date or even a price set for the U.S.

The Nexus has been on sale overseas in Britain for weeks now and is even launching across Europe in the next few days.

Whenever the Galaxy Nexus hits the States, it’ll be available on Verizon’s 4G LTE network (something we’ve known since mid-October), sporting a massive 4.65-inch touch screen with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, a 1.2-gigahertz dual-core processor and 1 gigabyte of RAM.

The new handset will also have a 5-megapixel rear camera capable of shooting 1080p video and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front for video chatting, and no physical buttons on the curved face of the device. The back of the Galaxy Nexus looks, well, a lot like the Galaxy S II and the LG Nitro HD.
