Take this with all the salt in the world: we’ve heard from a few people in the know (some more trusted than others) who have told us that the Galaxy Nexus is in Optus’ sale systems ready to go once stock arrives and the go-ahead is given by the people in charge. We’ve also heard that a release is expected to happen closer to the end of this month with an announcement expected earlier. This would mean that the Galaxy Nexus will completely miss the Christmas sales, however, it could be put on sale for Boxing Day.
The launch date might not just be for Optus; Vodafone and Telstra might jump on the bandwagon as well. We’ll find out in the coming weeks — remember that salt though.
