It may seem that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been slow to arrive on American shores, but there's reason to believe it will hit the ground running.

TheAndroid faithful are placing their 4G hopes and dreams in a video circulating today that shows the new Google Ice Cream Sandwich phone on Verizon's LTE Network clocking in at download speeds between 8-10Mbps. The silent videographer notes on the screen that the test is being conducted over a less-than-ideal connection--indoors and with only two bars.

If you're not salivating yet, this comes as Verizon is planning a big 4G rollout next year, CNET's Roger Cheng reports today. Let's hope all this speed will be totally frictionless; we wouldn't want to melt that new Ice Cream Sandwich.
