Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone nears release

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Samsung has begun taking advance orders for its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-based Galaxy Nexus smartphone.

Or, rather, Phones4U has, but it's the supplier Samsung is flagging up on its Facebook page, effectively making the yoof-centric chain Samsung's official Nexus seller.

Samsung Google Galaxy Nexus Android 4.0 smartphone

Last week, Samsung said the Galaxy Nexus will arrive in the UK on 17 November. Fill in the form on Samsung's Facebook page and "Phones4U will contact you about obtaining the Samsung Galaxy Nexus when it is launched".

Samsung hasn't specified a price for the Galaxy Nexus, and neither its Facebook page nor the Phones4U website list how much you might pay if your advance order is accepted. Other retailers have it listed at just under £520.

The Nexus runs ICS on a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. There's 16GB of storage on board, and a 5Mp camera on the back. The skinny handset has a 1.3Mp webcam too. Its display is a 4.7in, 1280 x 720 OLED job. ®
