If you're in the UK and want to buy a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, you can now hand over your hard-earned cash and do just that -- with a few conditions. The phone is now available from brick-and-mortar Phones4U shops, as well as the retailer's online store. It seems Phones4U has been given a one week head-start on other vendors, however it's not selling the phone without a contract online -- you'll need to head in-store if you want a SIM-free Nexus.
Most retailers are now expecting to stock the ICS-powered Nexus next Tuesday or Wednesday -- Nov. 22/23. So if you're not up for committing to another 24-month contract, and aren't near a Phones4U store, you may have to endure another week with whatever smartphone is currently in your pocket.
If you are after a new contract, you'll be able to sign up for a variety of 18 to 24-month plans with Vodafone, T-Mobile, Orange or O2 over on the Phones4U website (check the source link). Notably absent from the list is Three, which appears to be in the same boat as everyone else, shipping on the 22nd or 23rd. See the source link for more info.
