Smart’s first batch of Samsung Galaxy Nexus already sold out in one day

Well that was quick. Yesterday, Smart started accepting pre-orders for the world’s first Android 4.0 smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Not a day has passed and the first batch of units are already sold out.

Smart Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Does this mean that there are only a few units available for reservations in the first place? Or is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus really that hot? I believe it’s a combination of both? Google phones are all about exclusivity when it comes to the Philippine market. Not to mention the gorgeous design and specs the phone  comes with – 4.6” HD Super AMOLED screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processors, HSPA+ support and Full HD video recording capabilities.

The first batch of Smart’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be available for pick-up on January 28th. Afterwards, it’s time to wait again for the next batch.

Smart is offering the Samsung Galaxy Nexus free on Smart All-In Plan 3500 or UnliData Plan 2000. If you can’t wait for the next availability, grey market units are selling for almost Php40k.

    The competition begins: iPhone 4S vs. Samsung Galaxy Nexus!!! :D It would be nice if you blog about this 2 monsters. :D

  2. For people craving for ICS then its hot. Beyond that, well they are offering the Galaxy Note at the same plan unli data 2000 for free. A no brainer.

    The Nexus does not have expandable memory, it can only boast of ICS. Better get the bigger Note with expandable memory, better cam or just get the Galaxy SII

    The Note and SII will be getting ICS anyway so at unli data 2000, a lot would choose the Note. IMO

    • good point you made there paul

    • Good point.

      IMHO, the big + with going with an official Google phone over OEMs would be the updates to the OS. It’s known that OEMs take a long time to update. So if you want to be on the ‘bleeding edge’ in terms of OS updates, Galaxy Nexus is the way to go. Otherwise, the Note is a great pick.

  3. Still thinking on getting a plan Nexus, Note for smart unlidata 2000 or Xperia Play from globe w/c cost 999 per month + 5100 cash out.

    The Nexus was a bit of a letdown for me, probably because I was expecting it to be a successor to the S2 in terms of specs. Still, bearing the Nexus monicker, I don’t see why they compromised on things like the camera and expandable memory if it’s supposed to be the best representation of what Google intends ICS to be.

  5. yey, may stock na ulit samsung nexus

  6. Does this really mean Smart got exclusivity on the nexus? if so, wow. poor globe.
