iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Samsung Galaxy Nexus On Preorder At Three

Mobile phone operator Three has announced that it is starting to take preorders for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the first smartphone to come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the first to sport an HD screen.

The cheapest contract (opens in new tab) costs £34 per month on a two year contract and gets you 1GB of data, 500 minutes and 5000 texts. A £37 monthly fee swaps the 1GB internet for an all-you-can-eat package.

Another £3 extra bumps you to the One Plan which quadruples your number of minutes and provides you with the invaluable option to tether from the phone itself.

At £499.99, the PAYG version of the phone is one of the most expensive on the market, on a par with the iPhone 4S.

The phone should be available from the 18th of November which matches the launch date on the 17th, this coming Thursday.

The Galaxy Nexus has a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD screen with a 1280x720 pixel resolution, a five megapixel camera with AF and LED flash, a super slim 8.84mm curved design, a dual core Samsung Exynos SoC clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC capabilities.
