Three, O2 and Vodafone to carry Galaxy Nexus in the UK

Three, O2 and Vodafone UK are the first British network to announce that they'll be carrying the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which was unveiled at the recent Samsung Unpacked event in Hong Kong.

In Three's case, the device will run on the carrier's HSPA+ network, which it aims to have rolled out to 80% of the country by the end of 2011. Voda and O2 have kept quiet on the subject of HSPA+ so far.

As there doesn't seem to be any exclusivity agreement in place in the UK, we can probably expect fairly competitive pricing as the three networks battle for their share of Galaxy Nexus customers. We'll keep you posted if we hear anything from the two remaining carriers, Orange and T-Mobile. Hit the source links for more details direct from Three, O2 and Vodafone.

  • compatible with any US carrier?
  • AT&T
  • T-Mobile, the phone has AWS bands.
  • I just have one BURNING question: is the galaxy nexus going to be available one AT&T!? I know they were saying hspa+ where there is demand. Does that mean AT&T?
  • I don't know how US carriers operate, but in the UK with something this big, each carrier likes to have their little moment in the spotlight. Probably just going to have to ride it out until AT+T decide they want to say something though 
  • TMO please! :)
  • I'm using Three. Not had good internet speeds from them (nowhere close to the advertised speeds), but apparently they are getting much better coverage at the beginning of next year and with the introduction of HSPA+ the speeds should be better. Anyway I'll stick with them and maybe get a Galaxy Nexus with them.
  • wonder on what carrier it comes in the netherlands. thoug ill just buy it carrier free.if i can.
  • I recently got a Three HSPA+ MiFi and I've been really impressed with it. I use my Nexus S on Vodafone's network, but I will be really tempted to jump ship (especially if they are offering the all-you-can-eat data package with it).
  • If frequeny is 2100/1700 it will work on USA T-Mobile I believe.
  • Yea, I'm really hoping this rolls out like the Galaxy S II and goes to multiple carriers. I was going to upgrade to the Galaxy S II, but I think I'll wait to see if this phone releases on AT&T.
  • This is how it should work over here none of this carrier gets it first or any of that crap sorry but Verizon having it first for months has turned me off ever buying this Samsung crap
  • woot mid nov to my network and I got upgrade dec 9th wonder what I'll be getting :O
