Samsung's Galaxy Nexus car dock for the Verizon LTE version of the phone turned out to be less of a dock and more of a snugly-fitting piece of plastic. So far Verizon customers haven't been able to take advantage of the three electrical contacts on the left side of the phone at all. Though Google states (emphatically and repeatedly) that the docks on the Google Play Store are for the GSM model only, at least one LTE Gnex owner on XDA got it to work.

Android Open Kang Project: when it comes to taking advantage of the Galaxy Nexus, no one's going faster or harder. The custom ROM team has one of the most comprehensive modifications to the Galaxy Nexus' nearly unique soft navigation buttons out there already, with custom shortcuts, icons, colors and widgets. Their next trick is to add multiple widgets to a single icon, allowing users to quickly and easily adjust settings and playback from just about any app.
Pebble Smart Watch for an exception. But finally there's a worthy case we can get behind, because the creators have wisely decided to include both the Galaxy Necus and the Galaxy S II in their support.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus was released exclusively on Verizon in the United States. In that time the phone has received one and only one official update, to Android 4.0.2.... which was almost immediately overshadowed by 4.0.3, then 4.0.4 over two months ago. Today reports are spreading that Verizon is finally, finally sending out the 4.0.4 update over the air, making its LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus officially current for the first time in almost half a year.

legitimate security concerns and a root hack, users from around the Internet are reporting a serious flaw in the structure of Google Wallet on new phones. Apparently a factory reset will completely disable Google Wallet on some (and possibly all) NFC-enabled Android devices. This isn't even a root/mod issue - just using the built-in Android reset function will break the authentication for your device, rendering it inoperable for Google Wallet.
HTC One X and upcoming Galaxy S III are looking mighty tempting... but you're stuck in your two-year contract. What's a saddened Android modder to do? Well, if you're OK with having the look without the horsepower, then a team of XDA members is here to help. He's developed a flashable theme pack that will turn CyanogenMod 9 for the Galaxy Nexus into a pretty good imitation of the GSIII.
preparing a long, long overdue Android 4.0.4 update for the Galaxy Nexus, which has been officially stuck on 4.0.2 since it's release. Obviously the OTA update didn't happen yesterday, but Google seems to be just as tired of the run-around as we are, because they've posted the relevant update file on their own servers. Stock Galaxy Nexus users, get it now, before Verizon decides that up-to-date software isn't appropriate.
Galaxy Nexus, and in all that time the majority of users have been stuck on Android version 4.0.2. Meanwhile, the rest of the official developer devices (you know, the ones that Google "officially" supports) got updated to 4.0.3 and 4.0.4 ages ago. Now unconfirmed rumors are saying that tomorrow (May 22nd) is the day that it'll finally land.
