This Verizon Galaxy Nexus extended battery extends my tears for waiting

This Verizon Galaxy Nexus extended battery extends my tears for waiting

Back a little less than a year ago when the first Verizon LTE-laden Android smartphone was released, that being the HTC ThunderBolt for all you kids out there, it had an awesome optional extended battery that you could pick up to extend the battery time to a plausible amount of time - this being more than the 4 hours of regular time you got with LTE back in the day. Now we've got another device, the Galaxy Nexus, with an extended battery appearing for it, and though this this isn't the only other extended battery of its kind, it does remind me of the whoa I felt at the hands of the rogue FedEx delivery man I was subject to back then the day before CTIA, spring 2011.

Verizon denies blocking Google Wallet on Galaxy Nexus, blames hardware

Verizon has issued a statement today denying claims that it is intentionally blocking support for the Google Wallet mobile payment app on the upcoming Galaxy Nexus. The response comes after a Google spokesperson confirmed yesterday that Verizon's Galaxy Nexus would not support the company's NFC-based payment app, spurring rumors that rivalry from Verizon's own NFC payment system was in play.

Google confirms Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus won’t support Google Wallet

Google confirms Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus won’t support Google Wallet

So it's official, Google spokesperson just confirmed tonight that Verizon's Galaxy Nexus will not be supporting Google Wallet, along with those from other carriers, such as T-Mobile and AT&T (if they ever get the Nexus, that is). Same probably goes for all Android smartphones besides the Nexus S 4G for the currently foreseeable future. Well, that's not the most pleasant of news, especially for those who're already starting to utilize the NFC payment service offered by Google. What a bummer.

Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus to be priced at $299.99 on 2-year contract, reports WSJ

Following the newly released leaked shots today, the Wall Street Journal has just reported that Verizon's version of the Galaxy Nexus will be priced at $299.99 on a new 2-year contract, which sounds pretty archetypal alongside other Verizon offerings like the Motorola Droid RAZR and the HTC Rezound, both of which share the same price point. Unfortunately, what hasn't been confirmed is the actual release date, since the reports didn't get any more specific than "this month".

Verizon Galaxy Nexus in-store packaging appears

Verizon Galaxy Nexus in-store packaging appears

At this point we've got to assume that the folks at Verizon had all of this leak and pre-release panic planned for the Galaxy Nexus, because what we've been experiencing since the release of the international edition of this world's first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device is nothing but heartbreak and agony over the release date for the Verizon version here in the USA - that said, here's the in-store packaging. In what appears very much to replicate the packaging of the Nexus S, the hero device for Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Verizon's package has padding inside the top of the box, a simple cradle of red for the device, and all the regular bits underneath. Could this be the sign we've been waiting for?

Galaxy Nexus Verizon apps disabling photographed, launch imminent

Galaxy Nexus Verizon apps disabling photographed, launch imminent

What we're looking at today is a few more photos from the wild of the Galaxy Nexus working out on Verizon's 4G LTE network, this time showing off how the two, count them, two Verizon apps on the device will be able to be disabled at will right out of the box. This is not a miraculous feature as it was made clear that we'd be able to disable apps back when Ice Cream Sandwich aka Android 4.0 was revealed in Hong Kong a few weeks ago, but it is neat to see that this feature remains available here in the Verizon Galaxy Nexus device. What this means is not that these apps will disappear from the phone entirely, just that they'll be effectively gone from your sight and your processes.

Galaxy Nexus LTE for Verizon spotted in the wild, video by early owner

It appears that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus LTE, aka the version coming out in the USA under the Verizon banner, is closer than we thought - what we've got here is not only a couple of photos, but a video of one lucky early owner of the device just filmed today! What this likely means is that the release of the device on the 4G LTE network is right around the corner and that we can expect an announcement regarding such a release perhaps within the week. The video at hand shows everything to be in order for the device save a few carrier-added applications from the big V that we're sure wont be long for the root-sensitive amongst us.

Galaxy Nexus LTE press images appear in Verizon webpage guts

When you've got a device so monumentally important to the operating system it runs that people are hunting through the webpage code for the carrier it'll be carried on to find press images of it even though the only change they're sure to see is the branding on the back of said phone, you know you've got a winner - and that's just what's happened today with the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. This device carried by Verizon is the first official taste of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich we'll be getting here in the United States, and with the release in both the UK and Japan already in place, we've been feeling a bit left out of the party. Images found today by intrepid Phandroid Forum member Ytram have proven the wait to WE HOPE be over soon.
