Andy Rubin touts Galaxy Nexus US release, names next countries for release

The Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus, Google's next hero device for it's newest mobile operating system version Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, has been released today and pumped up by none other than the big G's Senior Vice President of Mobile Andy Rubin, with the rest of the countries yet to receive such a privilege listed as well. We've got our own hands-on and unboxing of this device up in the archive already, and your humble narrator himself has a similar situation going on over at Android Community, so you'll have no excuse but to grab that device for yourself once you realize how unabashedly awesome it is. That said, the waiting continues for the rest of the world citizens who don't have this device in stores yet.

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 announced for sale [UPDATE: Off-contract pricing included]

The device known as the Galaxy Nexus has been formally announced for sale this week via Verizon Wireless, this device being the first LTE smartphone running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and indeed the first Android device running that newest version on the market. We've been waiting for this release since the first announcement of the device in its international form back in Hong Kong a few weeks ago, and starting this month we'll be able to pick the device up here in the United States at our local Verizon store for $299.99 connected to a 2-year contract - starting tomorrow, the 15th of December, 2011.

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.)

Galaxy Nexus ICS ROM restores Facebook contacts sync

Galaxy Nexus ICS ROM restores Facebook contacts sync

Facebook and Google may have fallen out over contacts sync, Google stripping support for adding Facebook friends into the Android address book back in the Nexus S days, but that hasn't stopped modders from adding it back into Ice Cream Sandwich. A newly released MoDaCo ROM includes contacts sync support once more, along with some relatively low resolution contact photos that show up for each user.

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!

$290 Galaxy Nexus tipped as retailers struggle to shave price

$290 Galaxy Nexus tipped as retailers struggle to shave price

A $300 price tag for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus looks increasingly likely, with the latest leak indicating even cost-cutting wholesalers like Costco can't bring the coveted Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone down by more than a few bucks. A leaked screenshot from the members-only retailer suggests the LTE Galaxy Nexus will be $289.99 with a new, two year agreement, phoneArena reports, though Costco will at least sweeten the deal somewhat with a mysterious "Member Bonus Accessory Pack."

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 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.
