The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has gone on sale at UK online retailer Clove technology with orders being shipped from tomorrow.
The device costs a rather meaty £515 which is more than we'd pay for a top of the range handset (the iPhone 4S in comparison costs £499).
Clove says that they are aware of the issue relating to the volume changing eratically, and they have been sent a batch that has been through "additional quality control checks", which should have addressed the problem.
As an additional check, Clove are currently testing a number of handsets to make sure that the problem is not affecting any of the Nexus handsets they received.
There are a number of videos on Youtube that show how interference caused by another handset nearby disrupts the volume on the Nexus.
This leads some to posit that it could well be a hardware issue rather than a software related issue, which would make solving it extremely difficult, if not impossible.
That said, the Galaxy Nexus is a rather tasty handset; it is the first phone to come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and an HD ready display.
The screen is a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED one with a 1280x720 pixel resolution. There's a dual core chipset clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a five megapixel camera with a 1.3-megapixel front facing one, a 1750mAh battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi direct, Face Unlock and Android Beam.
