Google and Samsung today unveiled the Galaxy Nexus, the first phone designed for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Google and Samsung Unveil the Galaxy Nexus Smartphone

With a super slim profile, Galaxy Nexus features a 4.65" Contour Display with true high definition (720p) resolution and a lightning-fast dual core 1.2ghz processor combined with 4G LTE or HSPA+ technology. Galaxy Nexus also features the latest in software: Ice Cream Sandwich makes Android simple and beautiful, and takes the smartphone to beyond smart.

Beauty and simplicity
With Ice Cream Sandwich, our mission was to build a mobile OS that works on both phones and tablets, and to make the power of Android enticing and intuitive. We created a new font that's optimized for HD displays and eliminated all hardware buttons in favor of adaptable software buttons. We also dramatically improved the keyboard, made notifications more interactive and created resizable widgets.

The desktop-class browser is significantly faster, featuring a refined tab manager and the ability to sync your bookmarks with Google Chrome. Ice Cream Sandwich also features the best mobile Gmail experience to date, with a new design that lets you quickly swipe through your inbox and search messages even when you're offline. Calendar boasts a clean new look and you can zoom into your schedule with a pinch.

Connect and share
People are at the heart of Ice Cream Sandwich. We rethought how you browse your contacts with the new People app, which combines high-resolution photos and updates from Google+ and other social services. It's also easier to capture and share your life with family and friends. Galaxy Nexus sports a high-end camera with zero shutter lag, automatic focus, top notch low-light performance and a simple way to capture panoramic pictures. Shoot amazing photos or 1080p video, and then edit and share them directly from your phone.

Beyond smart
Galaxy Nexus isn't just a smartphone-it's beyond smart. Ice Cream Sandwich gives you complete control over the amount of mobile data you use by helping you better understand and manage it. We're also introducing Android Beam, which uses near field communication (NFC) to instantly share webpages, YouTube videos, maps, directions and apps by simply tapping two phones together. Face Unlock uses state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to unlock your phone with nothing more than a smile.

The Galaxy Nexus will be available in the U.S.A., Canada, Europe, and Asia starting in November. Google also announced that it's now activating 550,000 Android devices daily.

HAHAHAHA What a loser. Get a job you fan boy #loser. Jealous much? Better check your return period for your 4s.
DacksMac - October 19, 2011 at 3:53pm
I think the return policy is 30 days. Same as every tier piece if hardware ever made

Haha Didn't Know there where Droid groupies out there. Got you feelings hurt about the ShitDroid. It's not that I'm just a Apple Fan in which I will not deny. If I didn't have a job I wouldn't be able to buy an iPhone or any Apple product, I'd probably would be settling with a ShitDroid. It's about quality, design and performance not quantity and whatever else ShitDroids have to offer, if there is any. Also, if it wasn't for the iPhone your pice of ShitDroid would have never even existed. Hahaha.
