Samsung Galaxy Nexus vs iPhone 4S and Motorola Droid Razr in November?
Multiple websites have confirmed that the new Samsung Google Galaxy Nexus will hit UK stores next month. According to SlashGear, the new Samsung Google Galaxy Nexus is on sale now via the third-party retailer Phones4U in United Kingdom, and will start arriving to consumers next month, November 16.
Apparently, the UK date could be a week after the rumored launch date of the device in the USA. Rumors say the new Google Galaxy Nexus is poised to hit Verizon’s smartphone lineup on November 10 sporting the tag price of $299 on 2-year contract agreement.
I should note that the date is not confirmed yet, and should be taken with a grain of salt.
Meanwhile, Motorola is also expected to seriously compete in the smartphone market with the new Motorola Droid Razr, or just Motorola Razr outside of United States (because Verizon is the exclusive “user” of the Droid in United States). The Motorola Droid Razr, according to rumors, will hit the shelves or online on October 27th.
Can the two new Android smartphones compete against Apple’s “most popular” smartphone yet, the iPhone 4S? According to multiple data, including the sales figure published by Apple’s PR, the iPhone 4S is an instant bestseller with millions of handsets sold in less than two weeks. According to Apple, it had sold more than 4 million iPhone 4S devices in just three days after its launch on October 14th in United States and selected countries.
The Samsung Google Galaxy Nexus and the Motorola Droid Razr are “strong contenders” because both smartphones are expected to offer the Android Ice Cream Sandwich. The Samsung Google Galaxy Nexus will enjoy months of Android 4.0 exclusivity, while the Droid Razr is expected to bite off the Ice Cream Sandwich early next year, Motorola has confirmed.
The Android Ice Cream Sandwich or the operating system’s version 4.0, offers new features like Face Unlock, more polished user interface including the redesigned contacts app or “People app,” virtual buttons, better widgets, and built-in photos and videos editing tools.
The Android Ice Cream Sandwich is the operating system’s bet against Apple’s new iOS 5, the operating system used by the iPhone 4S and other compatible devices like the iPad, the iPad 2, the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 and the 3rd and 4th generation iPod Touch. According to Apple’s estimate, the iOS is now used by 25 million Apple customers. The iOS 5 offers better notification, iMessage instant messaging service, dedicated camera button support and on-lock screen camera access, iCloud sync and PC Free service for the PC-less activation of devices.
