The Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Google phone that had fans waiting for months, is finally here in Singapore this Saturday with a small bonus – it will come in both black and white.
The first model here to sport the new Android 4.0 OS out of the box, the top-end phone had been delayed from its original January launch, missing both the Christmas and immediate post-Chinese New Year buying sprees.
But the S$948 phone, which won’t be exclusive to any operator here, looks like it will still go on to be a hit after building on the success of Samsung’s earlier Galaxy S II phone which started shipping last year.
What’s great about the Galaxy Nexus besides its new OS? The XL-sized 4.65-inch screen for starters as well as near-field communications (NFC) support for wireless tap-and-go payment services when they finally get launched in Singapore (read our hands-on take on the Galaxy Nexus).
Along with the new “Google experience” phone, Samsung is also shipping the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and a “coral pink” version of the Galaxy S II this Saturday. Looks like the Korean phone maker is flooding the market full of gadgets for 2012.
