Vodafone customers in the U.K. will be able to sign up for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus today following a delay due to that infamous volume bug. The device is finally available to purchase from the carrier’s website and its retail stores, and best of all, it’ll arrive without the issue.
The Galaxy Nexus has been popular in the U.K. since it launched back in November, largely owing to the fact that it’s the first device to ship with Google’s new Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. However, early adopters have had their experience with the device dampened slightly thanks to a software issue that causes the system volume to fluctuate and mute itself while using 2G networks.
Samsung quashed the bug earlier this week with a software update for Galaxy Nexus users, and it seems that things have been working well ever since. Many carriers and retailers here in the U.K. continued to sell the device with the issue present, but others — like Vodafone — held onto it until it was fixed.
The carrier is offering Samsung’s latest Android device for free on a 24-month plan starting at £41 (approx. $64.32), which includes 900 minutes, unlimited texts, and 750MB of data per month. However, if you’re not too fussed about getting your hands on Ice Cream Sandwich just yet, you may prefer to bag the Samsung Galaxy S II, which is available for free from just £36 (approx. $56.48) per month with the same minutes, texts, and data. (And is arguably a better handset.)
