In addition to the recently-outed white Galaxy Nexus and Sprint 4G LTE Galaxy Nexus, it seems like the elusive 32GB GSM version is now on the horizon, too. So far all the GSM-flavored Nexuses sold in Europe and Asia (and imported into the U.S.) have been of the 16GB variety, but according to one British retailer, the 32GB version should be available in a little over a month.

On its official blog, Handtec reveals that the first batch of 32GB Nexuses is expected during the week commencing Feb. 6. That just happens to be the same week the 16GB white Galaxy Nexus is due to land in the UK. Pricing is still up in the air, but we've seen the 32GB model listed elsewhere for an eye-watering £600 (~$930), so you'll likely pay a pretty penny for that extra 16GB of storage if you take the plunge next month.

Man, that is good and bad news.
Good because you get more storage.
It's bad if you got a 16GB but wanted more.

It just goes to show you that despite being a big leap forward this launch was generally a poor showing by Google/Samsung.

Sorta delays in the United States.
Updates shortly after the device is released.
GSM problems.
Conflicts with competing services, Google wallet vs isis (I blame Verizon).
A cosmetically different one leaked within a couple months of initial release.
Rumored hardware differences, Sprint's version 1.5Ghz, 32GB GSM and white ones.
I'd be pissed if I got one and then found out just a few months later there was a "better" one coming out. What's next, An 8 megapixel camera?

The 1.5GHZ really isn't a big deal. The 4460 processor is rated for 1.5GHZ. More than likely it's the exact same processor, however Sprint probably told them to max it out. It's easy to up the clock speed on the current ones.

And there is a competition to win this one on android central? ;)

it's getting old, but Larry Page and Google really need to take some notes from Steve Jobs about how to release a smartphone. First the delays, then these random and staggered releases that no one has any clue about, and yet we still don't have any reasonably priced options for a GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus.

Yea, it's getting old to say that, but so is Google's lack of coordination and timely release schedules. I expected better from Google.

Google doesn't release the phones. The manufacturer and phone companies do that. Apple is a Hardware/Software company. Google just does the OS and consults on the hardware.
