Galaxy Nexus Smartphone Release Date: How to Win a Galaxy Nexus for Free?

With the imminent release of the highly anticipated Galaxy Nexus by Samsung, Google has launched the Galaxy Nexus Challenge contest for ten days, giving its Twitter followers a chance to win the new smartphone.

Ten winners over 10 days will be given a chance to win a new smartphone if the puzzle is solved correctly.

@googlenexus will Tweet a new puzzle starting Nov. 12 for ten days. Followers of @googlenexus across the world have a chance to win if they solve the puzzle.

To be eligible, followers must be a legal resident of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, South Korea, the United Kingdom or the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. They must also be a registered member of Twitter and be an active follower of the GoogleNexus Twitter feed.

Users can reply their solutions to the puzzle by including the #googlenexus reference.

The ending date of the contest most likely confirms the date of the official launch of the new smartphone, which will be the first device to feature Android’s 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Verizon Wireless, the wireless carrier to release the Galaxy Nexus, has still not confirmed the launch date in the U.S. In the U.K, the phone will launch on Nov. 17.
