The Galaxy Nexus is unique in that it carries Google's 'Nexus' moniker alongside Samsung's 'Galaxy' branding. This represents the first time that Google has allowed the manufacturing partner of one of its Nexus phones to have an equal share in the name of the device and indicates that Samsung was a little more than just a third party manufacturer. As such, it seems only right that the Galaxy Nexus get the same treatment as the Galaxy S, the Galaxy S II, the Nexus S and numerous other Samsung devices in that it will be available in both black and white. This makes the Nexus One the only Nexus device that was not offered in white.
UK retailer Clove is now taking pre-orders for a white version of the Galaxy Nexus, which will supposedly launch on February 6. Pricing for this snowy white Galaxy Nexus is set at £498, the same price Clove is charging for the black model. Shipping to the U.S. is available for those that can't wait to see when this phone will arrive in the U.S. For those who can sit on their wallets a while longer, we'll update you when we know more.
