Galaxy Nexus Hands-on and Unboxing

What we've got here is the Galaxy Nexus, Google's hero device for their next-generation Android operating system version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich - manufactured by Samsung and made to exemplify the most basic flavoring of the next step in the software series.

You'll find right away that this little monster truly takes the cake.

Ice Cream Sandwich SDK ROMs already in the works

Ideally, ROM developers wait for the open-source, AOSP version of the latest Android release before building a new ROM. But there is something of a work-around: industrious programmers can take pieces of the SDK and cobble together a working phone or tablet ROM. A good example is the various community-authored versions of Honeycomb based on its Software Development Kit. Now preliminary versions of Ice Cream Sandwich based on the recently-released SDK are already making their way onto the Nexus S.
