While those of us who live stateside still don’t know if/when we’ll be able to get our hands on the Galaxy Nexus, our friends over in Canada finally can begin pre-ordering theirs. Both Bell and Virgin Mobile announced today that they will be getting the Galaxy Nexus and it will be available for sale on December 8th for $159 with a three year commitment. Check out the press release below for more details:
