And so it begins. Today, it seems that Virgin have made the Galaxy Nexus available to customers. Virgin are launching the handset $0 on the Fair Go plan, which entitles the customer to $700 of calls and text and 3GB of data on a 24 month contract. Considering Optus are launching on the $79 Cap, this is a pretty good deal, with still a large enough entiltement of value for a wealth of fun. I can also confirm that the Galaxy Nexus is now in Virgin’s activation system – V-Connect. So now with Virgin and Optus both down, I guess the focus turns to Vodafone and Telstra and the Samsung Event scheduled for the 14th of this month.

I just got off the phone to the upgrades team – it’s not available yet, and they wouldn’t be drawn on a timeframe for release 🙁

2GB, 3GB, 300GB, it makes no difference when the optus network is as oversubscribed as it is currently.  I get quicker speeds out in the sticks with almost no signal than in metro areas with full coverage.  Need more towers and more capacity but I doubt they’ll bother with LTE not far off now.

Virgin $59 Fair Go gives you unlimited text not $700 of calls and text.

no doubt telstra will spend months “optimising” the phone before releasing it

Seems silly launching a flagship phone with very limited stock, especially after lengthy delays.
