Ice Cream Sandwich phone a no-show on Vodafone

Carrier still 'testing' Android 4.0 Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Seven Steps to Software Security

Vodafone has been disappointing punters today by failing to release the Samsung Galaxy Nexus as hoped

Officially on sale for the first time today, and released by O2, Phones4u - with a Vodafone Sim even - and the Carphone Warehouse, the 4.7in, dual-core Galaxy Nexus has, however, been a no-show over at Vodafone.

The cellco says it is still testing the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone.

"We're continuing to test the Galaxy Nexus software to ensure our customers get the best possible experience of the device," Vodafone Community Manager Tom wrote on the firm's forum this morning.

"We'll provide concrete details on availability of the device once the testing process has been successfully completed."

And the Galaxy Nexus is still listed as "coming soon" on the Vodafone website.

Vodafone's forum post suggests to us - the cellco has not confirmed this - that the gadget isn't working smoothly with Vodafone's network. This is not uncommon. O2 had to delay the release of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play for a couple of months because of incompatibilities between network and phone. ®
