MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 2, 2012) - The third handset in the Nexus line, the eagerly anticipated Galaxy Nexus by Samsung, is coming to Videotron.

Videotron customers will be able to pick up Galaxy Nexus as of February 8.

Breathtaking HD images

The new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform is more intuitive, more fluid and more fun.
