Google confirms bug on Samsung Galaxy Nexus

It might be one of the more sought-after phones on the market, but the Samsung Galaxy Nexus isn't without its problems. In fact, Google has just confirmed the most talked about problem, along with a fix for it.

That problem, as we mentioned earlier in the week, is what appears to be a software glitch that causes a random and significant drop in volume on the flagship Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone. Annoying, to put it mildly. It wasn't clear how widespread this issue was earlier in the week, but it's widespread enough for Google to make a statement on it.

According to Crave, Google's statement reads: 'We are aware of the volume issue and have developed a fix.' The company adds: 'We will update devices as soon as possible.'

We don't know how soon, but if the fix is there and affecting the reputation of the handset, it's likely to be here very, very soon. What will it fix? A network-specific problem, by all accounts. It is said to be caused by the 900MHz 2G frequency, which is used by O2 and Vodafone. If that's your network, you could have a problem. However, if you use Orange, T-Mobile or Three, you probably won't be affected, as these networks use the 1800MHz 2G frequency. It really is that specific.

Once Google sorts that and Adobe updates Flash, we really will have a competitor to the iPhone. Shame neither was sorted for the launch day really.
