First Galaxy Nexus Sold in UK, Owner Has to Exchange It

Samsung UK on Thursday morning proudly tweeted this picture of the UK's first Galaxy Nexus owner. Sadly, it seems that toothy grin didn't last long. When Alex Ioannou got home, he realised that something was amiss. According to Engadget, he had trouble syncing with Gmail because the normal account set-up options were missing.

"Instead, his phone was apparently preloaded with a bunch of weird dev stuff -- including the handy option to 'Report a WTF condition,'" writes Sharif Sakr.

Alex has apparently since confirmed that he got a brand new Galaxy Nexus that is in perfect working order. However, neither Samsung nor Google have explained what was wrong with the first handset they sold in the UK.
