The Galaxy Nexus, Google’s new flagship smartphone, is expected to be available in white starting in 2 weeks for the UK and in early February for people of the US. Most smartphones are typically released in black, though manufacturers have managed to roll out white models shortly after the original launch of a phone.
It’s an added revenue stream for phone manufacturers and from the looks of it, there’s consumers out there who want a white phone versus the standard black. Just look at Apple and the white and black iPhone. So far, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is doing quite well with sales of nearly 2 Million in just a couple of months.
Supposedly the white 16GB version already exists in some stores in the UK, though that hasn’t been confirmed. Being that this is the latest and greatest smartphone, be prepared to shell out a good chunk of change.
People in the UK can except to pay £614.95 retail and for US customers, no price has been revealed yet, though expect it to be the same as the original model, $649.99 or $299.99 on a two year contract.
