The year’s most anticipated Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, is coming to O2 and Vodafone.
Unveiled yesterday amid the kind of fanfare more in keeping with an iPhone launch than an Android kit, the third-gen Google handset is the first phone to run the all-new Ice Cream Sandwich version (aka Android 4.0) of Google’s smartphone platform.
It’s also the first-ever smartphone to completely shun front-facing buttons and features a whopping 4.65-inch SuperAMOLED screen, a brawny 1.2 GHz processor and, if we’re honest, a somewhat disappointing, five megapixel snapper.
So what about UK availability? Well, although a concrete launch date is hard to come by, O2 has confirmed via its Twitter feed that it is carrying the handset and expects to be selling it “soon”.
And, according to Tech Radar, it’s coming to Vodafone, too, with the carrier on board from day one – whenever that might be.
Pricing isn’t yet confirmed. But we're predicting it’ll be around the £30 per month mark on free phone contracts.
