Google’s latest Nexus commercial shows the beauty of Panorama mode

Google is at it again and have just released their latest commercial of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Galaxy Nexus gets ClockworkMod Recovery with on-screen touch controls

This shouldn't really come as a huge surprise to most folks and I've been wanting something like this for a while now. Being able to control my recovery with the Nexus One ball or myTouch 4G trackpad it was only a matter of time before someone made on-screen touch controls like Ice Cream Sandwich. That is exactly what we have here -- ClockworkMod Recovery Touch Alpha.

2-click Windows root and unlock method developed for the Galaxy Nexus

As far as we're concerned, if you went out and bought a Samsung Galaxy Nexus on launch day, you have a responsibility to unlock that bootloader, root Android and get cracking with some custom mods and ROMs. Even though the process isn't terribly difficult, there are a good number of steps and checks, and not everyone is up for the challenge. Those of you who have been holding off for an easier method can thank "WugFresh" at GalaxyNexusForum.com, who's developed an easy Windows application that automates every step of the unlock process on Windows.

MIUI custom ROM is ready for the Galaxy Nexus

New Galaxy Nexus owners: this is what you waited for. As developer devices, the Nexus phones get pretty much all the desirable custom ROMs out there, and now you can download the popular MIUI ROM for Google's favorite son. Different builds for the GSM and CDMA Galaxy Nexus are available over at XDA, both compiled from the official MIUI source code from popular ROM developer DroidVicious.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus (LTE) Review

Well, it's finally here. Google's official developer phone for Ice Cream Sandwich has reached American shores with Verizon as its official launch partner, for better or worse. Like the two Nexus phones before it, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will set the bar for Android smartphones over the next year. The only question is, how high will that bar be?
