Some months on from the Galaxy Nexus’ Australian launch, many buyers are still waiting for official accessories to hit stores. There’s good news here — official accessories are coming — and some bad news, as you’ll have to wait a little while longer to get them.
A Giz reader called Whytey tipped me off to this one (unsubtle reminder: you can always drop us a tip in the tips box), as some months after the launch, there’s still no sight of accessories such as the car dock; the only thing listed on Samsung’s Australian site are Bluetooth headsets, which frankly would work with any phone. This is what Samsung Australia currently lists as compatible accessories:
Compare that to the US version of the site and you get an idea of the problem:
So I put the question to Samsung to get to the bottom of why we’re not seeing accessories such as the car dock in Australian stores; their official response indicates that we will see them — but not for a little while. A Samsung representative told me that:
“We anticipate that additional supplies of Galaxy NEXUS accessories will be available in Australian retail stores from April.”
So in other words, hang tight, Galaxy Nexus fans — the long wait appears to (nearly) be over.
