Verizon Galaxy Nexus 4.0.4 update ZIP ready to download

Verizon's definitely sending out the 4.0.4 update to its Galaxy Nexus customers, as noted earlier today. But it appears they're taking their sweet time about it. If you're still running the official 4.0.2 release, you can click here for the official download of the updated ZIP file. It's about 40 megabytes, so even those with tiered data plans should be able to grab it without issue. You'll need to be rooted and running a custom recovery to apply it.

Google’s return to retail: the good, the bad and the ugly

The biggest news in the Android world last week wasn't yet another faked Galaxy S III photo, or Apple's latest legal shenanigans. It was Google's return to a model that we'd all thought they had abandoned almost two years ago. Not only did the Big G start selling the Galaxy Nexus directly to consumers, it did so at a severely reduced and probably subsidized price: $399 for a no-contract, unlocked GSM superphone. And unlike Verizon's version (which still goes for $650 without a contract), it's getting the latest Android updates as they come out.

Android 4.0.4 update rolling out to some Verizon Galaxy Nexus units

It's been over four months since an update came in for Verizon's Galaxy Nexus, which is still running Android 4.0.2 while version 4.0.4 sits on the open source repository. Or at least most of Verizon's Nexus units are: more than a few have rooted and are running custom ROMs, and this morning a few lucky customers received the genuine article in an over-the-air download. It looks like the 4.0.4 rollout on Verizon might finally be beginning in earnest.

Rumor: Samsung making the next Nexus phone

If the Samsung Galaxy Nexus doesn't do it for you (and for many, it doesn't) there's always the next Nexus to look forward to. But if you were hoping for an HTC, Motorola or ASUS phone to bear Google's developer branding, you may be out of luck. DigiTimes reports that Samsung has won the bidding to become the manufacturer of the next Nexus, probably due late this year or in early 2013. Samsung has made the past two Nexus devices, the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, while HTC made the original Nexus One back in January of 2010.

Google’s US GSM Galaxy Nexus gets separate software image

Google made a splash earlier today when it reanimated its direct phone sales, selling the Galaxy Nexus directly from the Google Play Store for $399 unlocked. In a Google Groups post, a representative stated that while the hardware is identical to the GSM model that's been available overseas for almost six months, the software gets one important revision: Google Wallet support is added natively. Google Wallet is still only available in the United States.

Unlocked Galaxy Nexus on sale in the Google Play Store for $399

Here's a surprise: Google's suddenly returning to the Nexus One model of direct phone sales via its shiny new Google Play Store. You can go to the Play Store right now and order a brand new Galaxy Nexus (GSM/HSPA+ version) for the impressive price of $399, unlocked and SIM-free. This deal seems to only be working for the United States at the moment - reports from the UK say that they can't even view the page.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus price plummet Monday

Great news for all you Nexus fans looking to upgrade into one, as of April 23 you will be able to pick one of these bad boys up for $199 with either a new 2-year contract or an upgrade for 2-yrs. It would be wise to hold off for a couple more days if you were planning on dropping your money on one this weekend. It could save you $100 to do so, and who couldn't use that kind of saving?

Sony Xperia Arc S ROM ported to Galaxy Nexus

When considering Android modders and the projects they choose to devote themselves to, the question "Why?" often arises. And the answer, almost universally, is "why not?" Such is the case with GNexusTimeScape, a new ROM for the Galaxy Nexus from noted XDA member koaaN. The custom ROM takes the interface, apps and widgets from the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S - an older, smaller and considerably weaker phone - and puts them front and center on the Galaxy Nexus.
