You know when something sounds too good to be true? Yup. Probably is.
Google and Samsung's promise that the Galaxy Nexus would hit on November 17th is a case in point. Because it looks like it'll be month twelve before any of us get our mitts on it.
This isn't based on a comment from Google, which has remained hush on the subject, but on some work from the chaps and chapesses over at Recombu who've been monitoring various sites and have noticed that release dates have slipped.
If the Galaxy Nexus has indeed been pushed back then we dread to think what this means for current Android owners who were hoping to update to Ice Cream Sandwich before Christmas. This is because there will be a period of at least a few weeks after the phone is launched where it has exclusivity on the new OS before it's rolled out to the likes of us.
Interestingly, Phones4U is ramping up its adverts for the Galaxy Nexus with London's Underground network currently plastered in adverts for the elusive young Droid. Perhaps they know something we don't...
Or maybe we know something they don't. Our money's on the latter.
