Galaxy Nexus Shows Up In Verizon MAP, Listed At $299.99 (Ditto For The HTC Rezound)

Nexus news is leaking like a sieve over at Verizon. This time it's from something called "Verizon MAP" (Apparently that's "minimum advertised price"). The latest tidbit of info is one of the last important bits, the price! It's $299.99.

Before you freak out about the November 10th date; that's not necessarily the launch date - more like the earliest possible launch date. We've got a least a month to go.

All this news also applies to the HTC Rezound (formerly the Vigor), which is apparently going head-to-head with Google's frozen flagship.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Prime) Hits Verizon Computers, It's 4G

Another hour, another sign ICS and the Nexus Prime are coming.

Did I say Nexus Prime? I meant Galaxy Nexus. That's pretty much official now. Verizon's Device Management system is giving up the goods this time, listing the Galaxy Nexus (I have to get used to that) in its database.

Also official is the 4G LTE modem, as if Verizon would let anything go out the door without one. Unfortunately. like most company programs, this database looks old and redundant, so it doesn't look like there's much more information to glean from this screenshot.

@Android Hits Twitter, Shares Pretty Ice Cream Sandwich Statue Picture

So I hear this new twitter thing is all the rage. The Android team has seen fit to set up shop in the twitterverse alongside @androiddev with @Android. Yes, somehow "@Android" wasn't taken.

So far tweets have consisted of the usual "Hello World" and the (awesome) Ice Cream Truck video. The one fresh bit of info comes from the account's avatar - it's a surprisingly big picture of the new ICS Statue.

Exclusive: Details Of The Verizon Galaxy Nexus Ice Cream Sandwich Phone (Sorry, "Prime" Is Not Likely)

At this point, it's pretty clear that we've all been knee deep in Ice Cream Sandwich goodies all week long. We've already given you the Music 4.0.1, Google+ 2.0, and ICS Clock widget APKs, but that's not all - now we have some details regarding the CDMA Verizon Nexus Prime. At least that's what we thought it was called before Google and Samsung decided on the Galaxy Nexus as the final name, according to our reliable source who goes by Geek Vundotra (remember the leaked apps above?).

Preview And Download: Leaked Galaxy Nexus/Nexus Prime Ice Cream Sandwich Audio Files, Including Brand New Alarms

The Ice Cream Sandwich leaks are continuing today with P3Droid's dump of the audio files found in the next Nexus' Ice Cream Sandwich innards.

From what I can tell, most of them aren't unique until we get to the alarms - a few of them are brand new based on my Google searches:

  • Fermium.ogg [audio:ics/alarms/Fermium.mp3]
  • Hassium.ogg [audio:ics/alarms/Hassium.mp3]
  • Neptunium.ogg [audio:ics/alarms/Neptunium.mp3]
  • Nobelium.ogg [audio:ics/alarms/Nobelium.mp3]

The alarm sounds are quite futuristic and magical, instantly reminding me of Tron.

[Download] Analog Clock Widget From Ice Cream Sandwich

Want a small goodie from Ice Cream Sandwich to take the edge off your craving for the newest iteration of Android? Of course you do! What we have here for your downloading pleasure is the analog clock from ICS. Essentially, it's the same as the Gingerbread clock, with some obvious aesthetic changes.

This is about as basic as it gets, as it's just the widget (no desk clock, alarm, etc.). Still, if you just can't wait to get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich, this is a good place to start.
