Google launching Galaxy Nexus bug fix “in the coming week”

Google has updated Galaxy Nexus owners on its plans to fix that odd 900MHz volume glitch, claiming that an over-the-air update will arrive within the next week or so. According to The Verge, this is Google’s latest official pronunciation on the issue:

“We’re currently rolling out a fix for the volume issue which will reach everyone in the coming week.”

Plenty can be read into those few words. Given that it will “reach everyone” it has to be an imminent OTA update, right?

Of course, we already know the software update for the Galaxy Nexus is being tested, with the unofficial official release already available for brave users who don’t mind a bit of manual OS updating.

      sssshhh, lots of people have been getting very rich reporting the scale of the story… sensationalist advertising is BIG business… Who cares what reality is…

      Great – but it happens for me when the phone switches from 3G tp 2G or a call or data is initiated in 2G

    got my phone, and as soon as the sim was in, the update downloaded installed after a restart. tmobile network.
    tried to emulate the problem by turnign off 3g on my iphone 3g and moving it close to the nexus, but it was fine :)

    no updates for a week ? Is Eurodroid dead?

    seems eurodroid is dead :(…and i just started here as well!!!

    well, i’ve had one weird experience so far. as i was listening to a song, my nexus just decided to die on me, after going through some screeching noise and the screen going all crazy/static!!!

    taking out the batter and rebooting seemed to fix the problem, and i’ve had no issues since.

    it think this may be the “force GPU” error that i’ve seen mentioned in some site :(

    Yeha force GPU does def stuff some stuff up.

    I’m sure GaryC is just a bit busy and will be back in Android action asap.

    Not dead. A tree snapped my phone line so I’ve just had FIVE WHOLE DAYS without the internet.

    There’s quite a bit to catch up on, it seems!

    while gary gets back up to speed (a bit of pun there :-p), here’s my review of the nexus:
    hardware: good, but not as good as the s2
    ICS : fast, smooth, visually crisp and clear and with lot of things to play around with (literally!! the “silly faces” option my neice and nephew have been playing on it since they got their hands on it, as well as showing off the “face unlock” to their friends lol)

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
