It looks like there were enough people with the now infamous volume rocker issue on the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus to warrant a full-scale investigation from Samsung and Google. They have both confirmed the issue, and that they are working on an update to correct it. Samsung UK released the following statement, “Regarding the Galaxy Nexus, we are aware of the volume issue and have developed a fix. We will update devices as soon as possible.” Google released a statement that was nearly a perfect match of this one. They haven't detailed a time-frame, but they are working quickly for a fix.
Although, more than likely the dealy of the release of this phone was a marketing decision to create a cohesive North American launch, perhaps this was something that was caught after the international release of the phone, and this is the real reason the Galaxy Nexus was delayed until December... What do you think?
