First Samsung Galaxy Nexus customer given a developer's device, but all ends well

First Samsung Galaxy Nexus customer given a developer's device, but all ends well
Samsung gave the first customer ever to get his hands on the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich device ever his 15 minutes of fame via its UK Twitter feed, but fired the shot with him standing by a giant Galaxy Nexus prematurely, it seems.

Apparently Alex Ioannou got a developer's device, since the usual debugging stuff was still loaded, which also included a feature "Report a WTF condition", but he couldn't for the life of it log onto his Google account.

Needless to say, the guy ran back to the reps, who apologized and swapped the proto Samsung Galaxy Nexus with the real deal, restoring the balance in Alex's universe. This confirms for the Nth time that the life of early adopters is not just photo ops and bragging rights, although we wish we had his problem here in the US, where the phone is not even on sale yet.
