Update: The takju mystery is solved: it's the U.S. GSM Nexus that Google released this morning. It's pretty clear that this device will be one of the first, if not the very first, to see the Jelly Bean OTA update.

We deal with rumors and potential fakes on a daily basis, and I have to warn you right away - on a scale of unconfirmed to solid, the source of this post is leaning to the left.

We've long suspected that the Spring Galaxy Nexus will be finally crawling out of the labs and into our hands on April 22nd, with today's Sprint planogram note BGR got ahold of confirming it. To make the case even stronger, we'll throw in a tip from one of our sources at Best Buy who sent us these internal images.

While neither picture explicitly names the devices, they should indeed be the Galaxy Nexus and the LG Viper 4G, the latter of which is officially coming out on the same date as well.

Everyone screws up at some point in life, but when a company as big as Sprint puts up a front-page banner showing a completely different, highly anticipated phone in place of one that's over a year old, we're going to have no choice but bring it up. And maybe even point the finger. Like so:

I'm sure we all wish the Nexus S 4G looked like that, but that is most definitely not it.

If you really want an Android tablet, but don't want to kill your wallet, then picking up a refurbished model is a great way to save some coin.

There's no doubt that the Galaxy Nexus is one of the best things Verizon Wireless has going for it right now. If you've been thinking about jumping over to Big Red so you can grab the Android 4.0 flagship, but can't justify the $300 price, then AmazonWireless and Wirefly are here to save the day.

Both of the online retailers are offering the GN for a mere $80 with a new two-year agreement, so the toughest decision that you're left with is which one one to buy from.

Things are really starting to heat up for the arrival of Sprint's Galaxy Nexus on both the 'net and in Sprint stores; in fact, rumor has it that employee training started today. Graciously, one of those employees happened to send a few slides over to Android Life that confirms almost everything we want to know about the device, excluding one small detail: the release date.

Ever since Sprint announced the GNex at CES this year, there have been rumors that it will have a 1.5GHz processor.

We teamed up with Tasks N Todos back in February to hook one lucky winner up with a Galaxy Tab 8.9 and ten more with pro licenses of Tasks N Todos, and now, we're back again to give one lucky winner a White GSM Galaxy Nexus.

So, what's so great about Tasks N Todos?

For starters, it syncs with Google Tasks, so if you have access to GMail, you have access to your task list.

Okay, I know what you're thinking: isn't the Sprint GNex coming out on April 15th? Well... maybe. Actually, we're not sure now - according to a new document obtained by The Verge, it could actually be coming out exactly one week later, on April 22.

Despite the fact that the earlier leak came from a highly trusted source, this image appears to be legit, as all of the other dates are spot-on.

Begun, the camera shutter wars have. Ever since Samsung and Google debuted the Galaxy Nexus' zero shutter lag feature, handset makers have been cranking up their camera apps. Sony's Xperia S is a 12MP monster camera with a fast shutter, but the real speed demon here is the HTC One X. In the video below, the only area the One X loses is in not having a dedicated camera button. As a side note, manufacturers, why don't your phones with amazing cameras have dedicated camera buttons?
