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.

Google confirms Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus won’t support Google Wallet

Google confirms Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus won’t support Google Wallet

So it's official, Google spokesperson just confirmed tonight that Verizon's Galaxy Nexus will not be supporting Google Wallet, along with those from other carriers, such as T-Mobile and AT&T (if they ever get the Nexus, that is). Same probably goes for all Android smartphones besides the Nexus S 4G for the currently foreseeable future. Well, that's not the most pleasant of news, especially for those who're already starting to utilize the NFC payment service offered by Google. What a bummer.

Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus to be priced at $299.99 on 2-year contract, reports WSJ

Following the newly released leaked shots today, the Wall Street Journal has just reported that Verizon's version of the Galaxy Nexus will be priced at $299.99 on a new 2-year contract, which sounds pretty archetypal alongside other Verizon offerings like the Motorola Droid RAZR and the HTC Rezound, both of which share the same price point. Unfortunately, what hasn't been confirmed is the actual release date, since the reports didn't get any more specific than "this month".

Verizon Galaxy Nexus in-store packaging appears

Verizon Galaxy Nexus in-store packaging appears

At this point we've got to assume that the folks at Verizon had all of this leak and pre-release panic planned for the Galaxy Nexus, because what we've been experiencing since the release of the international edition of this world's first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device is nothing but heartbreak and agony over the release date for the Verizon version here in the USA - that said, here's the in-store packaging. In what appears very much to replicate the packaging of the Nexus S, the hero device for Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Verizon's package has padding inside the top of the box, a simple cradle of red for the device, and all the regular bits underneath. Could this be the sign we've been waiting for?

Galaxy Nexus volume update: Are you fixed?

Samsung and Google began rolling out the Galaxy Nexus volume bugfix late last week, though it seems not all users of the Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone have yet received it. The update, ITL41F, hit our UK Galaxy Nexus on Saturday morning, but other owners have taken to Twitter and Google+ to complain that they're yet to see the amended software. Has your Galaxy Nexus been fixed yet?

Galaxy Nexus visits FCC again, but with AT&T bands

There's still no definitive word yet as to when Google's new flagship Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will arrive on Verizon, but it looks like the carrier won't be the only one to get the device for long. New FCC documents have surfaced revealing another Galaxy Nexus version that's destined for AT&T.

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!
