by: Chris SmithAugust 7, 2012

Jelly Bean (left) vs Ice Cream Sandwich (right)

Google’s latest two Android versions are yet to become available to the majority of Android users, who are anxiously waiting for their devices to be updated to ICS and / or Jelly Bean. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is available officially only on over 15% of existing devices, and Android 4.1 Ice Cream Sandwich is approaching the 1% mark.

Sure, there are plenty of unofficial ways to run either Android version on your existing device already, but we’re strictly referring to official Android builds here.

Whether you’re already an Android device owner, or whether you’re thinking about buying an [...]

Sprint joins the free Galaxy Nexus party

by: Bams SadewoAugust 4, 2012

The Galaxy Nexus may not have the most advanced specs anymore compared to the newer Android phones available in the market, but it does hit the sweet spot between hardware, software and price.  If the latter was the biggest concern that’s been holding you back from diving in, the time for hesitation is through, as Sprint is now offering the Galaxy Nexus for free.

You will have to be a new subscriber or add a new line to your Sprint’s account to take advantage of the offer. Tick one of the boxes there and the Galaxy Nexus can be yours in 2-5 business days, provided you agree to use Sprint’s voice and data service for the next two years.

Google Wallet now works on Verizon Galaxy Nexus, lets you add any credit cards

by: Bams SadewoAugust 3, 2012

Even though the Galaxy Nexus is meant to be a pure Google device, Verizon couldn’t help putting some extra touches, including preventing the Google Wallet from running on the phone. It didn’t exactly stop creative folks from coming up with a workaround, though. However, the days of tinkering are over, as Google Wallet is now officially compatible with Verizon Galaxy Nexus.

Several users have reported that they have successfully downloaded and installed Google Wallet on their Verizon Galaxy Nexus – without any tinkering. So if you happen to do a search on the app at Google Play, you should no longer see the Verizon Galaxy Nexus listed as [...]

Sprint now has Jelly Bean binaries

by: nathanAugust 3, 2012

Sprint and Verizon seem to be in the pole position for Jelly Bean binaries for several devices. Announced two days ago, the Nexus S 4G plus the GSM variant and the Moto Xoom WiFi are now capable of getting the tasty treat. In addition, the binaries for the GSM Galaxy Nexus and Verizon Galaxy Nexus have been updated. Unfortunately, Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus does not get VIP access to the fun this time around.

As far as all these devices are concerned, JB should add a separate dimension of tech-wonder and usability to them. For the complete changelog and access to proprietary drivers, please visit Google Developers and download to your heart’s content. Please do [...]

Better than free: Verizon Galaxy Nexus available via Amazon for a penny with $40 free credit

by: AdrianAugust 1, 2012

 

If you thought Verizon’s deal from last week, dropping the on-contract price of the Galaxy Nexus to $99, was great, wait till you hear about the new special offer for the “pure Google” device. Not only are Amazon and Big Red now offering the GNex for free with a two-year contract, but they are also throwing in a free $40 credit to sweeten the deal even more.

And sweet it is, considering exactly how cool and snappy the Nexus still is, even compared with high-end smartphones released in the last few months. Powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, the GNex might not exactly have the same oomph as, say, the S3, but it does come with a beautiful 4.65-inch HD [...]

Google has cut the price of the unlocked GSM model of Galaxy Nexus to $350 for quite some time now on its Play Store.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus CyanogenMod 10 (Jelly Bean) preview build now available

by: Chris SmithJuly 29, 2012

The CyanogenMod 10 preview builds continue to trickle in, with Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus being the latest Android device to run a Jelly Bean-based preview of CM10.

Just like in any similar cases with other devices – and we’ve seen CM10 available for the Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S2 or Nexus 7 to name just a few – this is an early CM10 version for the Galaxy Nexus available from Verizon. CyanogenMod developer Brint Kriebel posted more details on Google+ regarding this early CM10 build:

Since all the cool kids are doing it, I’m releasing a preview CM10 build for my device – the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (toro). I’m sure [...]

by: Chris SmithJuly 28, 2012

Android fans, and especially developers, that own Nexus-branded devices such as the Nexus 7 tablet or the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus smartphones, should know that Google has already posted the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean factory images for these devices, or at least, for most of them.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus users alongside Sprint Nexus S buyers and Korean Nexus S owners will still have to wait for the corresponding Jelly Bean factory builds for their devices, as Google did not make them available yet.

The factory images will help you restore your device to the initial settings if anything goes wrong while meddling with your developer device [...]

Best Buy says some Galaxy Tab 10.1 buyers thought they purchased iPads, returned the Android tablets

by: Chris SmithJuly 27, 2012

Things continue to look not-so-good for Samsung in its complicated patent-based lawsuit against Apple. The two giants are going to face each other off in courts starting with July 30 in the U.S. case, the most important one of for both companies – and they’re fighting it out in over 50 cases in 10 countries.

Earlier today, we heard that Google warned Samsung that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 looked too much like the iPad, which is what Apple was able to get apparently from Samsung documents.

Now we hear that the iPhone and iPad maker scored other similar documents that reveal internal Samsung discussions regarding similarities between its [...]

Apple says Google told Samsung that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 looked too much like the iPad

by: Chris SmithJuly 27, 2012

The Apple vs Samsung patent-based U.S. case is set to start on July 30, but until then we already have various tidbits to show you from the cases each company will try to prove in court in this legal clash of the titans – and they surely have a complex relationship.

The two companies are fighting for market share and profits in the smartphone and tablet business, but they are also bound by a multi-billion dollar component supply partnership. Also important is the fact that they are facing each other off in more than 50 cases spread across 10 countries, and they’re all mobile-related.

Apple argues that Samsung Galaxy-branded [...]
