Samsung Galaxy Nexus launches just in time for Christmas

Vodafone and Optus have announced pricing and availability for the Ice Cream Sandwich-toting Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

The Australian debut of Google's latest smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, is less than a week away. Vodafone and Optus have both announced that the phone will be available this Friday (16 December) on a range of pricing plans.

Both telcos have promised pre-Christmas delivery for customers who order the Samsung Galaxy Nexus online before 16 December. 

Vodafone

Vodafone, who was first out the door with the announcement, will sell the Galaxy Nexus on a variety of 12 and 24 month contracts, starting with a $29 cap over 12 months (plus $35 monthly handset repayments). Other plans include a $65 Infinite plan over 24 months (plus $10 monthly handset repayments) and a $59 cap over 24 months (plus $5 monthly handset repayments).
