If you’ve been patiently waiting for the release of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, you’ll have to wait a teensy, tiny bit longer. Earlier this week, we’ve reported on spotting the anticipated gadget in the UK. A couple of days ago, the device finally made an appearance in Australia. The latest gossip we have for you, thanks to Engadget, means you have to get ready for the droid sooner than you think!
Even though the Galaxy Nexus was initially reported to be released by Verizon Wireless, an anonymous tipster sent Engadget some new information on the big date. Along with some photos, we found new information that the inaugural device containing the anticipated Ice Cream [...]
Although it is not the prettiest leaked photo, the LG Spectrum has finally made an appearance. More specifically, you can clearly tell that it will not be packing Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box and will be a Verizon 4G LTE phone instead. In addition, it will be similar to the Nitro HD. Actually, they are more like twins, just on two different networks (Nitro HD is on AT&T). Pocket now reports that the LG Spectrum will be packing a killer 1.5GHz dual-core processor as well as a high-definition display running at 720p and an 8MP rear camera.
What looks to be just a Verizon branded Nitro HD might also just be LG’s way of trying to [...]
A few days ago, Huawei shocked everyone when it officially released the Honor (U8860) running on what appeared to be the demo version of the Android 4.0, or better known as the Ice Cream Sandwich.

It also contains information on how to switch back to Gingerbread. This truly marks the Chinese phone as the second device to contain the Google OS. One reason [...]

Despite the lack of confirmation for the final date, a video has been released displaying an actual unit operating on the ICS OS.

You may consider the Xoom as Motorola’s unofficial candidate against the Nexus One and Nexus S. This is based on the fact that the Xoom offers a pure Android experience without the custom UI and skins. [...]
