Fledgling Ice Cream Sandwich handset receives back room patch for volume bug as retailers confirm new, issue free, stock is on its way to consumers
Having been forced to halt sales of the world's first Android Ice Cream Sandwich handset earlier this month due to bugs in the handset’s volume controls, a selection of online retailers have reopened orders after glitch free Samsung Galaxy Nexus devices were reportedly delivered.
Whilst online handset specialist Clove claims to have the software corrected handsets in stock now, fellow retailer Expansys has issued a statement revealing it expects to receive stocks of the patched Samsung Galaxy Nexus handsets later today, November 30th.
"The new stock has had a Google approved firmware update applied to it by Samsung's distributors in order to fix the bug with volume control that affected some original stock," the Expansys statement said.
Asides from being the flagship device for the latest iteration of Google’s increasingly dominant Android mobile operating system, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus comes packing a fanciful feast of premium specs and impressive innards.
Boasting a monstrous 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display with a staggering 1280 x 720p resolution display, the Galaxy Nexus sports a fully optimised 5-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities. A 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM feature under the hood giving the Nexus some almighty grunt.
There is currently no word as to when an over-the-air software patch will be available to early adopters of the Galaxy Nexus who are currently suffering with volume issues.
