Google ends full support for CDMA devices, including Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus

Disturbing news from the official Android developer website: it appears that nearly all reference to CDMA phones and tablets has disappeared from the official documentation. This includes Android source code and factory ROMs for Verizon's CDMA version of the Galaxy Nexus and Motorola XOOM, as well as the Nexus S 4G. What this implies (and only implies) is that Google is no longer providing official updates for the removed devices, as is generally expected of "developer" hardware. The GSM Nexus S and WiFi-only Motorola XOOM are still present, as are the two initial images for the Galaxy Nexus CDMA/LTE, though these are marked as "archived, for reference only".

Google Wallet officially available for download on AT&T’s Android Market

Those of you with a Samsung Nexus S or Galaxy Nexus using an AT&T SIM card are now able to download Google Wallet straight from the Android Market. T-Mobile customers - as well as Verizon - will have to use an alternative method for downloading the application. It's not too sneaky, and has been confirmed by multiple users as a working perfectly.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus headed to WIND February 3rd

For our readers in Canada, you'll be happy to know the Galaxy Nexus is coming to mobile carrier WIND February 3rd. That's just 3 days away, and you can finally get your hands on some Android 4.0! Prices for the device vary depending on what program you decide on.

New Galaxy Nexus spotted in Benchmark tests

For now we are going to chalk this up as just a rumor or most likely some spoofed information. What we are seeing is apparently some benchmarks ran of the popular NenaMark2 suite. What makes this unique is the device is being listed as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus -- only with a new TI OMAP 4470 processor with much, much better graphics and a possible speed of around 1.8 GHz. Interesting indeed. Is Samsung about to pull a Motorola and drop another device so soon?

ClockworkMod Recovery Touch beta ready for download

Tired of wearing out your volume keys navigating through a ClockworkMod Recovery interface to flash the newest and coolest ROMs? Good news, everyone! Now you don't have to, assuming that you own a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (CDMA and GSM) or the GSM variant of the Nexus S. Clockwork developer Koushik "Koush" Dutta released beta versions of the custom recovery software for both phones yesterday. Instead of the basic button-based UI employed up to now, ClockworkMod Recovery Touch allows users to select folder, files and actions via the touchscreen.

Seidio releases 3800mAh extended battery for VZW Galaxy Nexus

Warning: The Seidio Innocell 3800mAh Super Extended Life Battery for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus will not stop bullets. It cannot be used to jump your car battery. It does not double as a maritime anchor. You might be tempted to try any or all of these things once you slide its massive bulk into your Galaxy Nexus and insert the custom battery cover. Do not. It won't end well. What the Innocell battery will do is give you some truly massive runtime, more than doubling the capacity of the standard 1850mAh battery included in the CDMA Nexus.

Galaxy Nexus accessories delayed, Expansys offers car dock January 29th

Ever since the popular Samsung Galaxy Nexus launched we've been waiting for a few awesome accessories from Google and Samsung. We saw a great desktop dock in Hong Kong during the official Nexus unveil, and an impressive car dock that I'd love to buy but sadly none are available. Popular online shop Clove UK has recently updated their blog stating that accessories have been delayed. They aren't the only ones pushing back dates either but we do have some good news after the break.
