Galaxy Nexus contract pricing emerges

Contract pricing for Google’s flagship Android device, the Samsung I9250 Galaxy Nexus, has emerged and Vodacom have confirmed that the smartphone did launch last week as they said it would.

It isn’t entirely clear which stores the device was launched in as the Samsung branded store in Vodacom World had very limited supplies last week Friday (24 February 2012). No other shops in the Vodacom-branded mall had stock.

However, Vodacom shops did have pricing information on Saturday and are able to take orders, though stock is expected to take a minimum of three working days to arrive.

Vodacom also provided an update on the launch special it is planning to offer.

Previously the red network said they would launch a contract that includes 100MB of data for R279 per month.

This deal is to cost R299 per month now, and 100MB of data is only given for the first three months of the 24-month contract.

The recommended cash price of the device is R6,999.

The data for the following table was taken from a Vodacom Shop price list and shows the regular deals Vodacom is offering the device on.
