Samsung GALAXY Nexus shipments resume after quick hiatus to repair software

shipments to retailers should start again starting Monday with the newly reflashed models ready to be put up for sale. And newly produced units will have the revised software already installed out of the box. That leaves those who already purchased the phone and have had problems with the volume. We would imagine that an OTA update should be coming fairly quickly for those who already own the phone, considering that Samsung is able to reflash its unshipped models with a new OS version.
According to those who have suffered with the volume bug, the sound out of the speaker starts to decrease until the phone suddenly goes mute and the Samsung GALAXY Nexus becomes unresponsive. Of course, it goes without saying that we are talking about the GSM model of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. Verizon is expected to launch an LTE enabled CDMA variant of the first Android 4.0 handset sometime next month for a contract price of $199.99 with November 29th the latest rumored launch date.

I used to think like you. I would always wait for a better phone and end up getting a phone i could have gotten a few months back. Just get a good phone now then deal with it for 20 months.

I won't be. And if it's that much better I'll get it. I have a never ending stream of upgrades.... 5 lines out of contract and I give my family my hand downs and basic phones off Craigslist. Lucky me.

It's not coming next year sometime. They have already released it over sea's and have a launch date for canada. If you look back at the bionic they had a lot of problmes with that phone and that's the reason for all the delay's. The Nexus has been out for a while and they only had one problem thus far! and its fixed on the new batch! But, there will be a better phone for sure next year probably early to mid year!

When you pick upgrades though, you need to choose something that very clearly represents a step ahead. A processor upgrade and a camera upgrade is not a step ahead. There needs to be a step up in many ways, and no steps back.
