Hungry for when you might be able to get your hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus with all of the delicious Ice Cream Sandwich goodness? Some information spotted on the web might give us a clue.

UK smartphone retailer Phones4u has listed a delivery date for the device on their site. According to this, it looks like folks (in the UK at least) could be getting their new Google phone as soon as November 16th.

The site has the Galaxy Nexus available for order through Orange.

When the phone was officially unveiled at the Samsung/Google event in Hong Kong, the tentative release timeframe of "sometime in November" was set.

Around the same time that the Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich was being unveiled in Hong Kong, a leaked MAP list suggested that we could see the device release as early as November 10th. The list showed a MAP period that ran parallel with the HTC Rezound.

The Galaxy Nexus (previously codenamed Nexus Prime) is set to launch with impressive features. It will boast an enormous 4.65 inch screen running at 1280x720 resolution - a true Super AMOLED HD experience. It will sport 1GB RAM and a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor.

Aesthetically, it is a thin phone, measuring only 8.84 mm thick. There are no mechanical buttons on the phone, instead everything it built into the massive touch screen.
