We told you guys the Nexus Prime + Ice Cream Sandwich announcement wouldn’t be far off. Alongside our source’s word that details of the new venue and date were imminent, a rumor swirled around saying that October 19th in Hong Kong would be the hosting site of what we expect to be the blockbuster unveiling of the year. Samsung has just confirmed with us this change of events which means the phone’s launch date was likely not compromised as rumors suggested.

Specific time in Hong Kong is 10:00am, which would be 7pm pacific and 10pm eastern on October 18th for those of us in the United States. I wish I could tell you guys we’d be there, but that’s up in the air at this point. Hopefully this date sticks! Keep YouTube.com/android bookmarked for when that day comes.
