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, 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).
