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

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.

Galaxy Nexus getting Flash and AIR support come December

Galaxy Nexus getting Flash and AIR support come December

We knew that Adobe was on track to roll out Adobe Flash support for Android 4.0 (and in particular, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus) before the end of this year but, at that time, we didn't know the exact month, whether it'd be either November or December. Now, fast forwarding to today, Adobe has just tied up a couple loose ends and confirmed that Adobe Flash Player 11.1 and Adobe AIR 3.1 will both be heading to the Galaxy Nexus (and thus Android 4.0) at some point next month in December.

Galaxy Nexus release dated for Japan, USA release hopes dashed

Galaxy Nexus release dated for Japan, USA release hopes dashed

If you were here yesterday checking out the story that many publications were saying was "confirmed" on how the Galaxy Nexus was going to be up for pre-order on Verizon today, you may well be sort of like "WHAT IS THIS" on the news that Japan's DoCoMo may well be another carrier to get the device before anywhere in the states. Yesterday's news told of a man who heard from a man who heard from a Verizon representative, or so he said, that today was the day, and yet here we stand, next to a tiny model of a promise that might as well be for ants (see below), it's so small now! In all seriousness though, yes, we will be getting the Galaxy Nexus at Verizon some day soon, just not this day.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Teardown reveals glass and display fused, low soldering

With the USA release of the Galaxy Nexus on the horizon and many folks on the outside of the states with the international edition in their hands already, we've only to cry in a corner until Verizon lets loose the device - but until then, we can dream with things like this iFixit teardown released today. What the folks over at the teardown palace have revealed is that not only is the Galaxy Nexus right in the middle of the pack when it comes to repairability, it's basically as simple on the inside as it is on the out. Not just one whole heck of a lot of surprises are contained within, but some pointers on how well you should treat the device do reveal themselves.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus pre-orders open tomorrow, no proof necessary

There's a few claims being written up today on the Galaxy Nexus as it'll be dropping on Verizon, each of them pointing in the direction of a pre-order date starting tomorrow, the 29th of November, 2011. What we're hearing is that there's this fellow by the name of Mike Peak who has been the only person in the world who's been able to contact Verizon and get a solid date out of them as far as when the magical Ice Cream Sandwich device will be available for purchase complete with LTE connectivity. The date is tomorrow, says the supposed Verizon customer assistant on the other end of the phone, and the event is a start for pre-release orders.
