blog Telstra hasn’t yet officially confirmed reports that it’s planning to launch Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy Nexus smartphone, but if this post on its CrowdSupport forum by one of its executives, Gerd Schenkel, is any indication, the telco is certainly eyeing the handset off. Schenkel, an executive director for Telstra Digital, writes over the weekend:
“How keen are you to get this phone? And why? http://www.google.com.au/nexus/“
Unfortunately, none of Telstra’s customers have yet responded. Of course, we would expect a more enthusiastic response if Telstra actually confirmed the launch. Local site Android Australia has been linking Telstra to the Galaxy Nexus for some time, with the phone reportedly showing up in the company’s internal ordering system already. We’ll find out if the big T is joining Vodafone (and perhaps Optus) in launching the Galaxy Nexus later this week.
Update: OK, now it REALLY looks as though the Galaxy Nexus is coming to Telstra. Check out this very cute video the telco just posted. “Coming soon,” it screams, with a bunch of shots of the Ice Cream Sandwich and Telstra logos. The Galaxy Nexus, of course, is the first handset to run version 4.0 (code named ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’) of Google’s Android platform.
