Android ICS Nexus S update out today for employees only

Android ICS Nexus S update out today for employees only

It has begun for those of you working at Google today running a Nexus S, the update to the official Google-distributed Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 build that you've been waiting for all these … days! Word is that the build sent out today to some (not all) Google employees is an early build of Ice Cream Sandwich, so there's certainly some kinks to work out, but this is no 3rd party street nightly build folks, Google sends out the good stuff right away. For those of you waiting at home, you can also get Ice Cream Sandwich right this moment if you wish, but you'll have to do some hacking to get it. Refer back to our post about the Rocket Launcher hidden in the system to see.

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.

ICS 4.0 hidden Android Dreams feature hands-on

ICS 4.0 hidden Android Dreams feature hands-on

Google is a place where even though their slogan may no longer have to do with the doing of no evil, they certainly do a lot of good AND have a lot of fun - case in point: a hidden feature in the newest version of their mobile operating system Ice Cream Sandwich by the name of Android Dreams. This feature is otherwise known as Rocket Launcher or "RocketLauncher" for those of you buzzing around the hacker circuit, and what we've got courtesy of our pal Cory from Android Community is a hands-on experience with this new way of looking at your apps. All you need is a bit of digging skills and you can see this rather spacey experience for yourself!

Nokia denies Carrier IQ tracking; iPhone code spotted but Nexus clean

Nokia denies Carrier IQ tracking; iPhone code spotted but Nexus clean

Nokia has denied reports that its cellphones and smartphones contain code from Carrier IQ, the mobile analytics company accused of logging keypresses, text entry and other use across a huge number of handsets. "CarrierIQ does not ship products for any Nokia devices" a Nokia spokesperson told SlashGear, describing reports otherwise as "inaccurate." However, evidence of at least some potential Carrier IQ tracking has been identified in Apple iOS devices, while Google's Nexus range is believed to be code-free.

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

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.
