In other Galaxy Nexus news – this time for users on the other side of the planet – Canadian carrier Rogers has opened online reservations for the Ice Cream Sandwich handset. If you’re a Rogers customer, you can reserve the new Nexus via the carrier’s Reservation System. Mobile Syrup has a screenshot which shows that there is a $40 reservation fee you must pay:
As previously reported, the Galaxy Nexus will be available at Rogers in January 2012. Bell and Virgin Mobile have already launched the device in Canada (last week, on December 7).
