Motorola takes on Google Nexus with RAZR Developer Edition

Motorola is taking on Google's Galaxy Nexus at its own game, courting Android coders with a Developer Edition variant of its own RAZR smartphone. The RAZR XT910 Developer Edition is functionally identical to the existing GSM RAZR, but will come supplied with an unlocked bootloader so as to make installing unofficial firmware builds possible. However, in return, Motorola will withhold the warranty, so if users brick their phone they're on their own.

Kogeto ICONIC adds 360-degree video to Galaxy Nexus

Kogeto is hoping the ICONIC 360-degree camera adapter will do for the Galaxy Nexus what the DOT did for iPhone 4S photography, a stick-on lens that allows the smartphone to capture all-round video. Clipping to the back of the third-gen Googlephone, the ICONIC - along with the companion Android app - will shoot 360-degree video and then piece it together into a playable, draggable clip shared online.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Here in the LTE version of the newest Google hero phone, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (also known as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE) has not only the unique claim to running Google's newest mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich first, it's also connected to the fastest network in the states, and best of all: you can go to your corner Verizon store and purchase one, unlike the international edition. All that said, you've really got the same device only ever so slightly modified for this particular carrier: Google's vanilla hero phone remains nearly as pure as its first release internationally. What you're going to get here is another perspective on the Galaxy Nexus in general, how ICS handles our day to day, and what it means to own the LTE version of this device here in the USA.
