Galaxy Nexus to reach Canada December 8 for $160

Galaxy Nexus priced and dated in Canada first

Canada beat the US to getting a commitment for a ship date and pricing for the Galaxy Nexus. Samsung's Android 4.0 flagship will ship both to Bell and to Virgin on December 8, supporting rumors. Both carriers will sell it for $160 on a three-year plan or $650 contract-free.

Bell is running a Twitter "lineup" from 10AM to 10PM Eastern on December 1 that will guarantee a Galaxy Nexus by launch day for the first 100 spots. Visitors have to both get a pre-made Twitter post and have to re-post every hour to guarantee their spots.

The timing strongly supports the talk of a December 8 Verizon launch, as Samsung representatives had told us both Canadian and US releases were synchronized. Verizon's model may be nearly twice as expensive on contract, both from the shorter two-year contract and the inclusion of 4G over LTE.
