Google Nexus Prime release date set for November

Japanese network tweets arrival of Google handset will be next month

A long time coming, the Google Nexus Prime will be arriving soon. After much speculation about when it will finally be heading to UK shores it's now clear that the handset will indeed be arriving sooner than expected

Japanese telecoms company DoCoMo has leaked in a tweet that not only will they be one of the first companies to offer the handset but that the Google Nexus Prime will be making its arrival in November, just a few weeks away.

While not revealing anything further it was long expected that the handset would be making an appearance soon, especially considering the fact that Google's new operating system, Android Ice Cream Sandwich will be making its debut early tomorrow morning.

Despite the fact only one teaser image has appeared, artists and experts have already been creating mock images of what the device could potentially look like, with a curved glass screen being almost a definite.

Google Nexus Prime: Ice Cream Sandwich

Of course the biggest selling-point of the Nexus Prime will be Ice Cream Sandwich, Google's hybrid operating system which is designed to bridge the gap between tablets and smartphones that run Android.

Taking design cues from Honeycomb it's believed the OS will see a large range of improvements across the board along with a whole host of new features. Most recent of these features is the inclusion of an image-editing function which will apparently be making an appearance, however this has not yet been confirmed.

Either way all will become clear early this morning as Google makes its official announcement in Hong Kong at 3am (GMT).
