Galaxy Nexus on sale tomorrow, Razr and Lumia 800 out now

The first handset to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich hits shelves tomorrow, and the Motorola Razr is out now. What a week.

What a week. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus -- the first handset to run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) -- hits the shelves tomorrow morning, and the Motorola Razr and Nokia Lumia 800 are on sale right this very minute.

A great time for fans of new high-end handsets -- not so much if you like saving money.

There's also a deal to be had for you early birds planning on snapping up a Galaxy Nexus. Get yourself down to Phones4U on London's Oxford Street for the 8am opening tomorrow morning, and if you're one of the first 100 to buy, you'll get a £250 voucher to use on music and films for the handset. It's such a good offer, we might even see you there.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich brings a host of new features, including the ability to unlock the handset using facial recognition, group apps in folders, resize icons and more. It also has a cool Tron-style look. The Galaxy Nexus has a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED screen that's 720p HD resolution, and a 5-megapixel camera.

The Razr hit shelves today, and it looks like a triumphant return for Motorola's famous phone. It's quite ridiculously slim at just 7.1mm, with an 8-megapixel camera on the back, and 4.3-inch screen.

Nokia's Lumia 800, meanwhile, is the company's first to run Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system. We gave it four stars, applauding the tile-based OS, though the 8-megapixel camera could be better. Carphone Warehouse is selling it for £470, while Three is offering it on pay as you go for £400.

So, nothing if not a lot of choice if you're due an upgrade. Which will you be adding to your shopping basket, if any? Let us know below, or on our Facebook page.
