Alex Loannou was the first person to buy a Samsung Galaxy Nexus as they went on sale in the UK earlier today. He proudly posed for a picture that was tweeted out by excited Samsung staffers. That was the good part of the story.
When Loannou got home though he was quite disappointed. He found that the GMail sync didn’t work right and there were “a bunch of wonky developer tools” still present. Somehow this early stage model was packaged in new packaging and sold to Mr. Loannou.
Lonnaou was able to go back to the store where he purchased his Galaxy Nexus and get a replacement that worked properly. On the flip side to that though, we’d think they should have been sold out by then, right?
