GALAXY S 4 Nexus edition eyes-on: Hugo Barra’s got it

GALAXY S 4 Nexus edition eyes-on: Hugo Barra’s got it

This week we were treated to a rather unexpected surprise: Google's one and only I/O 2013 keynote address revealed a faux-Nexus edition of the Samsung GALAXY S 4. As luck would have it, we caught up with Google’s Vice President of Android Product Management Hugo Barra last night - and he happened to have one of these devices in his pocket. Being the friendly fellow that he is, he have us a brief once-over with the device to show how Nexus-like it really was.

PSA: Google I/O 2013 registration begins at 7AM

PSA: Google I/O 2013 registration begins at 7AM

Google I/O registration begins tomorrow at exactly 7:00 AM PDT, so I hope you all have your alarms set, Google+ accounts registered, and Google Wallet information prepped to shell out $900 for a ticket ($300 for academic students and faculty). Yes, Google is requiring registrants to have a Google+ and Google Wallet account this time around, but I'm guessing most of the people attending already have both accounts set up (or at least one).

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update step-by-step

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update step-by-step

This week we're seeing the last of the iterations of the so-called Galaxy "Nexus" as it exists on Verizon's 4G LTE network. The Verizon Galaxy Nexus (made by Samsung, mind you) has since birth been plagued with talk of its mudblood-like software from the carrier as Verizon modified its contents past what Google originally intended - thus besmirching the purity of the Nexus smartphone line. Because of this Verizon-specific build, the Galaxy Nexus is last in line to receive the update to Android 4.2.2 - but here it is, ready for action!

Verizon Galaxy Nexus reaches End of Life with Galaxy S III and DROID RAZR

Verizon Galaxy Nexus reaches End of Life with Galaxy S III and DROID RAZR

This week there've been a couple reports of Verizon hitting the End of Life marker for a variety of phones working with their 4G LTE network, this including (for starters) the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S III (32GB), and original DROID RAZR. When an official End of Life notification hits Verizon, this means that any devices tagged with said notification will no longer be shipped to retail locations and the carrier will be winding down advertisements for said devices as well. While this isn't a definitive marker for Verizon's end-of-service for software updates, End of Life is often indicative of lowered priority for the devices listed from that point forward.
