Android team wishes you a Santa-laden Galaxy Nexus Holiday

There's a video out there today by the name of Happy Holidays - from Android, which contains spirits being made bright, laughing all the way, and Santa himself, not to mention the brand new Samsung Galaxy Nexus making everyone's noses glow with delight. Of course there's no way this is a response to Santa using Siri, right? It really doesn't matter, what matters is that this commercial is completely lovely and makes for a warm cup of hot chocolate directly from Google's Android headquarters where though it doesn't often snow, it certainly did this year.

Google holds Android 4.0 updates for Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus

This device is the first to work natively with Google's mobile OS by the name of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and runs a Texas Instruments OMAP4 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Is it enough to compete with such gaming titans as the ultra-powerful NIVIDA Tegra 3 quad-core processor toting ASUS Transformer Prime, or perhaps the iPad 2 for good measure?

Android 4.0 ICS tablet interface discovered inside Galaxy Nexus

Back a few months ago there was a discovery made by an intrepid developer inside Android's Honeycomb OS in which changing the LCD density to a smaller value than the tablet it was running on had revealed a smartphone interface for the otherwise tablet-sized OS - one day after the USA-based Galaxy Nexus has been revealed here in the USA and our pal Michael Crider from Android Community has discovered that essentially the same thing happens in reverse with Ice Cream Sandwich. What Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is meant to do for the Google mobile OS is create one single OS that works just as well for handsets as it does for tablets, but until now we've got less than an adequate look at what this means for larger screened devices. As Crider shows here, it's a rather interesting experience that everyone should have.
