The latest Samsung release carries with it its new operating system called the Ice Cream Sandwich. The smartphone is already available in Canada and some parts of the world.
Verizon, the one responsible for the distribution of the Galaxy Nexus in the U.S., has not released a statement regarding the late release or the smartphone. But the company tweeted last Wednesday that the smartphone will be available the next day.
One possible reason for the delay might be Verizon’s decision not to include Google Wallet on their Galaxy Nexus. The reason for Verizon’s reluctance to include the feature on the Galaxy Nexus is technical issues. But some individuals does not buy Verizon’s excuse. Some have speculated that the reason they didn’t include the feature is because Verizon is developing its own mobile wallet initiative.
The Galaxy Nexus’ OS, the Ice Cream Sandwich, includes updates on a lot of features. The smartphones camera has zero shutter lag and has its own facial recognition mechanism.
