Australian mobile phone carrier Vodafone has just announced the pre-order availability of Samsung’s new Galaxy Nexus on its airwaves.
Users interested in the purchase of this mobile phone with a service agreement on this carrier can now reserve one from the company’s website
. The new Google phone
will be available for purchase for $5 per month with the signing of an agreement on the carrier’s $59 Cap.
With a minimum cost over 24 months of $1536, the option also provides users with $750 of Calls and 2GB of data, as well as with Vodafone to Vodafone & 3 calls.
Vodafone announced the pre-order availability via Twitter
only a few hours ago: “GALAXY Nexus, the first phone with Android 4.0 is available now for preorder from Vodafone!”
Previously, only two wireless carriers in Australia have been confirmed to bring the new Google phone to their networks, namely Optus and Virgin Mobile, but it seems that Vodafone was keen on not letting them get ahead.
Moreover, the carrier has made the Ice Cream Sandwich available at a cost that is close to what Virgin has to offer to its customers.
Optus was said to have it on a $79 per month plan, but chances are that it too will cut its price tag a bit, so as to make the offer more appealing.
The Galaxy Nexus
has a lot of appealing features to offer, and it’s not wonder that carriers will try to come up with great offers for it.
Running under ICS, the handset also offers great viewing capabilities courtesy of a 4.65-inch screen, fast performance due to its 1.2GHz dual-core application processor, and great photo snapping capabilities due to its 5MP camera.
“GALAXY Nexus is the world's first phone available with the latest version of Google's Android platform. Android 4.0 or "Ice Cream Sandwich" brings an entirely new look and feel to your Google-powered smartphone. Simple layouts with subtle animations and delightful flourishes make everything feel alive,” Vodafone notes.
