Although carriers are staying light-lipped about a solid U.S. launch date, the Galaxy Nexus pure Google superphone will officially be landing in Canada one day before the expected launch. BestBuy.ca confirmed December 7th availablity today in the ad shown above. As part of a promotion and the early launch, it will only be available at one location– Bay and Dundas– and all Galaxy Nexus accessories will be 50% off. Supported carriers, Virgin Mobile and Bell, and other BestBuy stores will make the device available through their own retail outlets starting December 8th. It will debut for $159.99 CDN on a three-year agreement.
When it comes to when the device might be landing on Verizon, you can pick any number of unsubstantiated rumors ranging from December 8 to December 19. As of latest rumors, Engadget claims to have an internal Best Buy doc showing the Galaxy Nexus for December 11. We’ll obviously have to wait a couple more weeks to find out for sure. You might have to make your way to Toronto on December 7th if you just can’t wait.
