Three customers who’ve pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy Nexus could face a wait for their handset, the carrier has confirmed, as networks gear up for the soon-to-be-blockbuster smartie’s official launch on November 17th.
An update on Three’s official Twitter feed disclosed that would-be buyers who ordered the phone yesterday will not receive their slab of Android Ice Cream goodness until Nov 22nd, owing to what it dubs “stock delays”.
Orders processed before yesterday - Three began taking them on November 14th - are thought to be unaffected.
The announcement comes amid signs of huge demand for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which blends the bloatware-free appeal of vanilla Android with a Super AMOLED HD screen and the blazingly fast dual core skills of the Samsung Galaxy S2.
As the first-ever phone to showcase the ICS version of Android, it also introduces some features that are wholly new to the platform. Not least the Android Beam function that harnesses NFC technology to let users share content by touching their phones together and a rather novel screen unlock method with face detection technology.
Three is offering the third Nexus-branded smartie for free from £34 per month or on the top-end One Plan from £40, including all-you-can-eat data.
