Telstra to release the Samsung Galaxy Nexus tomorrow

By

Lucky Telstra customers will be the first in Australia to get a hold of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, when it launches here tomorrow morning.


The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first smartphone in the world to feature Google's new Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, which will see Google taking the fight to Apple's recently released iOS 5 operating system.

Optus customers will have to wait a little longer, with the device being released there December 20.

Andrew Volard, Director, Telstra Mobile, said the pre-Christmas launch of Galaxy Nexus on Telstra would see people around Australia re-writing their wish lists.

'Our customers will also enjoy superior web browsing on the Galaxy Nexus thanks to Telstra's HSPA+ mobile download speeds. Customers can pull down web pages faster, stream video with less buffering, and access their social networks more quickly,' Mr Volard said.

Vice President of Telecommunications at Samsung Electronics Australia, Tyler Mcgee, said "Samsung is delighted to introduce a new addition in the highly successful Galaxy family to Australian consumers. The GALAXY Nexus is the first Australian handset to feature Android 4.0, bringing an entirely new look and feel to the popular operating system."
