Vodafone is now selling Samsung Galaxy Nexus Ice Cream Sandwich mobile phone on £26 a month deal

Mobile phone network Vodafone has started retailing the world's first handset to run Android 'Ice Cream Sandwich' 4.0 - in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, with a cost attached of £299 and a monthly fee of £26.

Vodafone reportedly delayed the selling of the Galaxy Nexus due to a bug discovered, although no details have been made public about this issue.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus arrives with a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED screen, running from a dual core 1.2GHz processor, with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, a 5 megapixel camera that is capable of 1080p video camera and NFC capabilities.

Vodafone is carrying the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on contracts with 100 minutes, a 500 text message bundle and a 250MB data allowance - or for £41 a month, with no cost for the device, with 1200 minutes, unlimited text messages and a 750MB data bundle.

Our soon-to-be-merged mobile phone sister site One Mobile Ring caught up with Samsung at the Galaxy Nexus launch event in London, where the site has published a hands on walk through in pictures here.

OMR also has obtained a briefing for the handset from a senior product spokesperson from Google, which was caught on video here.
