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.

The staggered distribution begins today, UK retailer Clove reports, with batches of handsets receiving the new software this week. However, contrary to previous expectations, the latest consignment of Galaxy Nexus units from Samsung have not been pre-flashed with the update.

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.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Teardown reveals glass and display fused, low soldering

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Teardown reveals glass and display fused, low soldering

With the USA release of the Galaxy Nexus on the horizon and many folks on the outside of the states with the international edition in their hands already, we've only to cry in a corner until Verizon lets loose the device - but until then, we can dream with things like this iFixit teardown released today. What the folks over at the teardown palace have revealed is that not only is the Galaxy Nexus right in the middle of the pack when it comes to repairability, it's basically as simple on the inside as it is on the out. Not just one whole heck of a lot of surprises are contained within, but some pointers on how well you should treat the device do reveal themselves.

Fixed Samsung Galaxy Nexus stock has arrived in the UK, with a software patch in place to address the volume bug that affects existing handsets when using 2G 900MHz networks.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus pre-orders open tomorrow, no proof necessary

There's a few claims being written up today on the Galaxy Nexus as it'll be dropping on Verizon, each of them pointing in the direction of a pre-order date starting tomorrow, the 29th of November, 2011. What we're hearing is that there's this fellow by the name of Mike Peak who has been the only person in the world who's been able to contact Verizon and get a solid date out of them as far as when the magical Ice Cream Sandwich device will be available for purchase complete with LTE connectivity. The date is tomorrow, says the supposed Verizon customer assistant on the other end of the phone, and the event is a start for pre-release orders.

Galaxy Nexus volume bug fix released

Galaxy Nexus volume bug fix released

Samsung and Google may not have released their fix for the Galaxy Nexus volume flaw yet, but that hasn't stopped the Android modding community from addressing the problem itself. A patch said to be the official release to address the problem - which sees volume fluctuate when the 2G 900MHz band is used - has been released by MoDaCo, ahead of Samsung's own schedule which is believed to have temporarily stopped shipments.

Verizon LTE Galaxy Nexus price tipped via ad

Verizon LTE Galaxy Nexus price tipped via ad

We have no idea if this ad is legit or not, but this is the price that we were hoping for. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone has been price tipped via an ad. Apparently, the ad you see in the photo below is some sort of flash ad that is running somewhere. I've got most ads blocked so that may be the reason I haven't seen it.

Samsung could have new Galaxy Nexus stock - free of the volume fault - ready as early as next week, but is apparently freezing shipments in some locations until the updated phones have been prepared. Having confirmed it was working on a fix yesterday, Samsung has subsequently told Irish resellers that it will be bringing new, fixed stock in next week, one pre-order customer tells us.
