Looking for a new handset? Guess what -- you've got a new option! Verizon Wireless is introducing their own version of the Galaxy Nexus, an LTE-enabled build of Samsung's mega-smartphone. Users in the US can buy one today, for $299 on a 2-year contract. It's the first Android 4.0 phone, with a 4.65” Contour Display with a true high definition (720p) resolution HD Super AMOLED screen. Galaxy Nexus also features a dual-core 1.2GHz processor. So, you buying in? This kid is:... Read more...
What's this? Yep, the back-and-forth surrounding the Galaxy Nexus continues, and unfortunately, it looks like the roller coaster is heading toward a dip, not a climb. While there's no doubt in anyone's mind that a 4G LTE-enabled Galaxy Nexus is en route for Verizon Wireless, we've received reason to believe that it won't be launching on 12/9, as previously assumed. It's tough to say what the hold-up is. Verizon has long pushed the DROID franchise, and they're certainly doing all they can to manuver the DROID RAZR as the flagship phone for the holidays, despite overwhelming buzz and demand for an...

Yesterday, we told you about the HOT new upcoming DROID smartphone, the Droid 4. Now, new details are surfacing that suggest this new phone (which hasn't even been formally announced) could be available as early as next week. According to Droid-Life, the DROID 4 could make its debut on December 8. Another HOT new smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus, is also said to be launching on the 8th. Coincidentally, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is also pegged for a release on the same day. As you may recall, the DROID 4 has similar specifications as the recently released Droid RAZR. Key differences include... Read more...
A Verizon Wireless ad for the Galaxy Nexus has appeared in various locations around the web. This ad suggests the Galaxy Nexus, which will be the first phone to feature Android 4.0, could be available for $199.99, which is $100 less than some of Verizon Wireless’ other high-end smartphones. After clicking on the Learn More button, users are taken to a promotional page for Verizon Wireless that does not list the Galaxy Nexus. It’s hard to say if this price on the ad is a long-time deal or if it will be a special holiday promotion. The ad does appear to be legit however, since it’s... Read more...
We all knew Samsung wouldn't introduce an LTE-enabled Galaxy Nexus last week without having a Verizon Wireless SIM card up their sleeve, right? Just a few days later than expected, VZW has announced that they will indeed be a carrier for the Galaxy Nexus -- making them the first carrier in the States to fess up. A few UK carriers as well as NTT DoCoMo in Japan have fessed up as well, but this is the first confirmed LTE model thus far. Aside from announcing that they'll get it, not much else is clear. It'll ship with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and will be "available later this year in Verizon... Read more...

Yesterday, we told you about the Nexus Prime, a hot new smartphone that was expected to be unveiled next week. Now, we're getting word that Google and Samsung may be delaying the arrival of this highly-anticipated smartphone. In a statement released today, the two companies said they won't be showing off the Nexus Prime at the Samsung Unpacked event next week during CTIA as we expected. The Nexus Prime is also known as the Galaxy Nexus and the Droid Prime. Whatever you call it, this smartphone was expected to give us the first look at Google's next version of Android known as Ice Cream Sandwich.... Read more...
