Verizon Galaxy Nexus Accessories Hands-On

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Accessories Hands-On

We didn't just grab the new Verizon Galaxy Nexus yesterday, we picked up the official accessories too, so whether you're concerned about power-hungry LTE or just want to treat your new toy while you're still in the honeymoon period, there's probably something for you. For most it's the extended battery ($49.99) that will hold most appeal, an NFC-enabled 2,100 mAh Li-Ion pack offering an extra jolt of runtime at the expense of a slightly bigger phone in the hand.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Hands-on

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Hands-on

After weeks of waiting, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus LTE has finally arrived. It's hardly an unfamiliar phone - after all, we reviewed the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus back in November, coming away charmed by its combination of 720p HD display and Ice Cream Sandwich OS - but it brings with it a few advantages and a few potential compromises too. 4G means high-speed downloads on a par with what many people expect from their home broadband connection, assuming you have the coverage, but we've also grown used to LTE phones chewing through battery life in record time. Read on for our first impressions.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus gets interactive support simulator, help with Android 4.0 ICS

Verizon Galaxy Nexus gets interactive support simulator, help with Android 4.0 ICS

Though the differences between the original Galaxy Nexus that's been released a couple of weeks ago by Samsung internationally and the Verizon 4G LTE version of the handset are few, Verizon has gone above and beyond the call of duty in creating an interactive "this is how you do it" page for the device's relatively new software. What you'll be able to do on this Samsung Galaxy Nexus support simulator is find out how to access and use everything from Phone Calls to Android Beam, all of this fully activated and ready to go on the handset set to release SOON (tomorrow, if you believe the whispers from above.)

Verizon Galaxy Nexus set for December 15th says multiple sources

Verizon Galaxy Nexus set for December 15th says multiple sources

This week we've got more sources than we know what to do with telling us that Verizon's new release date for the Galaxy Nexus is no later than December 15th - no sooner, either, if you put it that way. This device has been one of the most hotly debated madness inciters in months as it was released in the UK several weeks before being dropped here in the USA through its first and only carrier: Verizon. This device is the first device to carry Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is Samsung / Google / Verizon's hero phone when it's released later this week - we hope!

Verizon 4G LTE back online

Verizon 4G LTE back online

Verizon Wireless has restored its 4G LTE network, following an outage over the past 24-36 hours that saw customers dumped back onto 3G or even 2G data connections. The cause of the outage is yet to be confirmed - Verizon said only that it was a "technical issue" - but subscribers across the US were impacted as the high-speed service went offline, embarrassingly just days after the carrier had celebrated its first year of 4G service.

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 Wireless network down in Midwest USA, no ETR for repair

For those of you experiencing difficulties with your Verizon data-laden products this afternoon, specifically with LTE devices such as the DROID RAZR or the BIONIC up in the Midwest part of the United States, Verizon has confirmed that they are working on the problem as we speak, though there appears to be no ETR (estimated time of resolution) at the moment. We've been hearing for a few hours now in some cases that users in and around Chicago, lower parts of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa are all experiencing troubles with their data on smartphones, tablets, and Wi-fi hotspots. If you are one of these people, please feel free to comment below and we'll forward the information to Verizon so the scope of the problem can be assessed.

Verizon Family Data plans coming 2012 says CEO

Verizon Family Data plans coming 2012 says CEO

Here at the end of 2011 it seems almost strange that this didn't happen already on multiple carriers: that family plans would spring up not just for calls and text, but for data as well - this is going to be a reality inside 2012 according to Verizon Communications CEO Lowell McAdam. This week at at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference, McAdam noted that of course it makes sense for families with several screens to deal with, not wanting to pay for each of them on a different bill - Verizon not wanting to deal with that if they don't have to either. Verizon isn't the first to hint at such plans, but this is the closest we've gotten to confirmation that such plans will start rolling out on carriers across the USA inside the next few months.

Verizon denies blocking Google Wallet on Galaxy Nexus, blames hardware

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.
