Google's Galaxy Nexus by SamsungThe wait is finally over as Google and Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Nexus (not Nexus Prime as most people thought it would be called) today in Hong Kong.

The Galaxy Nexus is the first phone to come with the latest Android operating system ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ as well as a plethora of delicious features including a giant 4.65-inch HD touchscreen (720 x 1280), 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, 16 or 32 GB of internal storage, NFC chip for wireless payments and mighty 1750 mAh battery. Network-wise there’ll be support for HSPA+ while an LTE version will be available depending on region.

The Galaxy Nexus is expected to be available across major global markets in November but outright/unlocked pricing has not yet been announced. There’s also yet to be any mention of an Australian release date but with the strong Aussie dollar there’s no doubt many will be looking to take advantage of that and grab one outright from an International online retailer.
