Galaxy Nexus gets November 16 launch date from UK retailer

It looks like the Galaxy Nexus will be landing in the hands of UK customers first, as online retailer Phones4U has just posted a November 16th delivery date through carrier Orange. Google and Samsung haven’t made anything official on pricing and a solid release window, but a mid-November launch would certainly make sense leading up to the holidays.

In related news, Google has apparently confirmed that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which was launched alongside the Galaxy Nexus, will not be making its way to the original Nexus One. The Telegraph reports Google’s Hugo Barra has confirmed the device’s hardware is “simply too old” to run the new OS.
