    First UK Samsung Galaxy Nexus Customer Has to Rerturn His First One - Happy After


    Apparently, the very first official purchaser of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the UK ended up unhappy with his new Galaxy Nexus and had to return it. Luckily this story has a happy ending. According to the report, the customer, named Alex Ioannou, was "...having trouble syncing with Gmail because the usual account setup options are missing. Instead, his phone was apparently preloaded with a bunch of weird dev stuff -- including the handy option to "Report a WTF condition."

    As it turns out, more than likely, somehow a developer Galaxy Nexus was packaged up and fell into his hands. He returned the phone, and while he waited the apologetic retailers stuffed him with Ice Cream Sandwiches and his new G-Nex was good to go!

    ...and he lived happily ever after. The End.

    probably could have sold that dev unit for a ton on ebay and bought a new one with cash to spare.

    Probably not because once you start touching those things nobody wants to mess with it because it's like buying a new car but yet those 50 fresh miles on it is probably from someone ripping the car and going fast. Plus once you do things to the phone warranty is gone and it can come back to you. Good for him fort being first.

    Not a developer, but I wouldn't want to mess with other people codes. Rather author them myself.

    Kind of a bad title for the article - gives the first impression the first ones are bugged. Should probably read "First UK Samsung Galaxy Customer Accidentally Receives Dev Phone"

    Also, I find it pretty hilarious how bad people are ripping on this guy on the Engadget forum for not keeping and/or selling it. Nerd fury!
