An article published by the UK’s Telegraph this morning has our inbox filling up with worried future Galaxy Nexus owners. Could the world’s first Ice Cream Sandwich device launch in Europe on November 17, but not in the U.S. for another couple of weeks? According to this article, that’s exactly what will happen. Here is the quote from the piece that has scared us all:
“At a recent Samsung European launch…the company confirmed that the European launch will precede the device going on sale in America and the rest of the world.”
Uh oh. Could it be? Last week, the internets were abuzz when Samsung announced in London that the device would most definitely be out on November 17 in Europe, but this is the first time we have seen “America” brought up. I would say that most of us were under the impression that the U.S. version would more than likely be out at that same time to make for one big Euro-American launch. Now, I wasn’t at the event to know if Samsung actually used the word “America” or not, so I would say that we shouldn’t freak out too much at this point and look at this as purely rumor. This is the first time we have seen any news publication use something other than that the phone would roll out in Europe and the “rest of the world thereafter.”
Verizon has told us that the phone will be out some time this year – whether or not that’s November 17 is still a mystery. You can all survive for another week or so, can’t you?
