Samsung Android 4.0 smartphone priced for Blighty

Galaxy Nexus heads north of iPhone 4S

UK mobile phone seller Clove has priced up the Samsung Galaxy Nexus at £515 sans Sim lock.

That's for the 16GB, HSPA+ version of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-running Samsung announced last night alongside a 32GB model which, Clove told us, won't be coming to the UK.

Neither, of course, will the LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus, since there are no commercial LTE services in Blighty yet.

Clove said it expects its first batch of handsets to arrive early next month.

Danish seller MobilityShop has the new Samsung smartphone priced at DKr4499 which is equivalent to £524, suggesting Clove's Galaxy Nexus price is on the nose. ®
