Samsung Galaxy Nexus sign-up page goes live with seven carriers

October 19, 2011

Good news for aspiring Galaxy Nexus owners: Samsung may intend to bring the phone to every single major American carrier, and at least three regional carriers as well. A new sign-up page has appeared at Samsung's store, directing US customers to list a carrier preference. Seven carriers are listed, including Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile.

We know that Verizon will be getting the Galaxy Nexus, and it'll probably have some kind of limited exclusive in the U.S. market. The HSPA+ version (the same one that was displayed throughout Google's Hong Kong event) has cleared the FCC using bands for AT&T and T-Mobile. The other four carriers listed on the website are probably up in the air at this point - there's no hard evidence that Samsung is actually making devices for anyone besides Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile, but if there's enough consumer demand, they'd probably be open to the idea.

We still don't have confirmation from Verizon that the Galaxy Nexus is coming at all (maybe they don't want to steal the Motorola DROID RAZR's thunder?) but Samsung confirmed that Verizon would be the first to get it in the US. One of the official Google videos also showed off the Galaxy Nexus with Verizon branding, so you can expect the phone to land in Big Red's stores sometime in November. Who knows how long it'll be before other consumers can get a hold of it - if you're on Cellular South, US Cellular or Metro PCS, it couldn't hurt to head over to Samsung's sign-up page and express your interest.

    The back of the device is mad ugly, I don’t like that look, reminds of SGS2 too much. They should have went with a Nexus One like backing, that would have much better aesthetically speaking.

    I emailed Sprint customer service immediately after the you tube video launch and asked about the availability on Sprint and how their supposed 4G LTE network is coming along.  Here is what Sprint told me:

    Thank you for contacting Sprint. Thank you for your interest in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Since this device is not available to our customers, I am unable provide the details you requested. If Sprint offers it in the future, you will find product and pricing details on Sprint.com and in promotional informationat our retail stores. We encourage you to watch news reports or monitor our web site to see if a change in availability occurs.

    So basically, all the Samsung page is for is to collect email addressees so that they can start spamming your inbox with garbage.

    Good news for me is that my contract expired in September.  I’m heading for the pretty girl in the pink dress.
