If you’ve been holding out for the 32GB Galaxy Nexus here in Europe because the 16GB device simply isn’t enough for you, then you’re going to be a little disappointed with Samsung’s latest move. The Korean company has decided to terminate the 32GB GSM model.
The device has already suffered a number of delays. Its 16GB counterpart made its debut in Europe back in November, but just under three months on, the 32GB device is yet to show its face. Samsung had promised that it would arrive in January on its pre-order page… then February… then March.
But British retailer Expansys now lists the device as “discontinued” on its website, and a spokesperson for the company told SlashGear that “at this time it looks like they will not be releasing it.”
But never mind. You can just grab the 16GB device and stick in a 32GB microSD card, right? Wrong.
Unfortunately, the Galaxy Nexus is one of the few Android devices these days to go without a microSD card slot. That’s why ensuring there is enough storage on the device when you purchase it is particularly important.
I don’t know about you, but I think I’d struggle to get by with a 16GB handset. I opted for a 32GB iPhone 4S and even that’s not enough for me — I wish I’d picked up the 64GB device.
Will you go ahead and purchase the 16GB Galaxy Nexus anyway, or will you hold onto your cash until we see the Galaxy S III?
