While we’re pretty sure Samsung and Google will be introducing the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich powered device, the Nexus Prime aka Galaxy Nexus, on October 11th at CTIA, we’re still unsure about when the device will be arriving on shelves. We’ve heard November 3rd mentioned as a possible release date before and now, some new intel has suggested that it might, at the very least, be hitting Verizon on October 27th.
That intel is apparently some info that is arriving in Verizon inbox’s today and it lists a certain ‘Samsung Prime’, a Droid Charge replacement, as a device that will be hitting Verizon’s network on October 27th.
Of course, it also says that the dates are subject to change so it’s possible that October 27th may not end up being the actual release date. It is certainly a date to circle on your mental calendar though.
Here are the contents of the message:
Motorola Xoom 4G LTE Tablet – 10/6
Pantech Hotshot – 10/6
Samsung Stratosphere 4G- 10/13
Pantech 4G Global Modem- 10/20
Samsung Prime (Replacement for Charge) 10/27
No mention of the HTC Vigor which is a bit curious seeing as though we had heard that it might be destined for an October launch. Still, I theorized that Samsung and Google and thus, the carriers, probably wanted to give the Prime launch some space and it appears that they have done just that.
In any event, we’re just a few weeks away from a launch and that’s exciting.
