FIRST!  NTT DOCOMO Jumps Gun, Announces Galaxy Nexus for November

FIRST! NTT DOCOMO Jumps Gun, Announces Galaxy Nexus for November

Someone over in the NTT DOCOMO camp has an itchy finger.  That’s quite alright with us though, as it only helps to build anticipation for the new mobile hotness of 2011.  Thanks to an early tweet and some spilled beans, we are fairly certain that we have the full list of hardware details for the Galaxy Nexus.

The Japanese carrier confirmed that they’ll be shipping the Samsung handset in mid-November, matching up with details that we’ve been hearing for more than a few months.  Now, if we can just get to the bottom of the remaining unanswered questions, we’ll be happy Androids!  According to the image here, the Galaxy Nexus will be included as part of the carrier’s “NEXT” series.

Here’s what we’re looking at in terms of specifications for the Galaxy Nexus.  Keep in mind that no matter how official looking, these are unconfirmed.  Sit tight, kiddos, we’re a half a day away!

    You know this was reported on about two hours or so ago by other android sites right?

      I think the whole “FIRST” thing was about the site that got the specs up, not about AG posting it :-)

    This looks wrong: “External Memory: 32GB microSD up to a maximum 2GB/microSDHC”
    Does it mean 2GB up to a maximum 32GB?

      They’re referring to microSD’s 2GB maximum size, you need a microSDHC to go higher.

    I think the “First!” part of the headline was in reference to NTT DOCOMO jumping the gun and being the first to announce they will have the device

    Something still bothers me about the UI in the picture. It just feels so un-Android and definitely looks nothing like Honeycomb as Google said it would. I really hope that’s not stock ICS. The Google search bar looked much cooler when they showed off what it would look like with the next update.

    This phone is HUGE! It’s even bigger than epic touch 4g.
    Where are all the guy who insisted that they could make the phone just as big as 4.3′ phone without those buttons? lol
