android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

Motorola DROID 4 launch date pushed until February 2, 2012

To be honest, this shouldn't be a surprise. The Galaxy Nexus was postponed for more than a month, and we all figured the Motorola DROID 4 wouldn't see a pre-holiday release 3 days before Christmas. It was rumored we may see the device tomorrow, but evidence was still thin. Now we have some concrete info from a Verizon document stating a February 2, 2012 launch date.

Android Community Weekly: December 18, 2011

This week in tech news we finally nab ourselves a Verizon branded Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE, review some excellent devices, and see Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) progress through some much needed updates. Monday, by no surprise - Facebook topped Nielsen’s list of most popular Android apps. To be honest, carriers should start including it with devices from now on, as it is probably the first application downloaded from the market by many.

Target offers Verizon Galaxy Nexus for $189.99 with a new 2-year contract

Now that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus has finally launched, the only thing left to do is look for the best deal. LetsTalk had quite a good deal at 12:00AM PST this morning, with it priced at $154.99 after using a special coupon code. Unfortunately, they oversold it leaving some customers on a 2 week waitlist. This is not an ideal situation to be in, so you may want to act fast on this deal at Target while it's relatively new.

Netflix updated with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich support

Just in time for everyone in the US to start receiving their Galaxy Nexus phones running ICS, Netflix has updated today with full support for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The update has just hit the Android Market and it only shows a few small bug fixes and ICS support. This is just in time because I'm sure many are picking their Nexus up at this very moment.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus LTE Hands-on and Unboxing

When it comes down to Android running on a smartphone, there's a collection of devices out there that bring you a "Pure Google" experience, developed between the manufacturer and Google specifically to bring you the best experience you're going to get with each main version of their operating system - the Galaxy Nexus is next in line in this family line, and here in the Verizon version we get our first official USA glimpse of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The first version of this device was released a few weeks ago internationally, this version just dropping today at Verizon with 4G LTE capabilities and a couple tiny modifications to the operating system in the form of apps placed there by Verizon. In our first look here, we'll explore how the device feels to handle, some initial benchmarks, and some photo and video examples so you can see if you'll truly want to be running down to your local Verizon store to snatch one up.

Google finally advertises their Samsung Galaxy Nexus on TV with two new commercials

The only other commercial of a "Nexus" device seen so far was of the Nexus S 4G, and it wasn't even sponsored by Google. Well, that changes soon with a couple cleverly funny commercials made by the manufacturer. The first commercial embedded below is my favorite - a child tries unlocking his father's Galaxy Nexus using the face unlock feature by making faces towards the Nexus. When all fails, he hopelessly hands the device over to his dad and finally gets to use the device. We all saw a commercial like this coming, and it was produced perfectly.
