Looks like someone may have dropped the ball over at Newegg, judging by one of the banner slides on the main page:

Do you see what we see? The Galaxy Nexus, now with 800MHz moar processor! It's clearly a typo, but it's pretty lulz all the same. Fortunately, the actual cell phone landing page has the correct specs, so hopefully no one out there will be picking up the good old GN thinking they're going to be clocking the fastest speeds known to man in a mobile device.

introduction

A rumor has begun circulating over the past week about the possible existence of an upgraded version of the just-released Galaxy Nexus. At CES, ASUS announced the TF700T, a beefier version of the Transformer Prime (well before the first Transformer Prime has even been released in many countries), leaving a lot of people who bought the first iteration a bit upset. Are Google and Samsung following ASUS's lead and planning on releasing an incremental upgrade to the Galaxy Nexus so soon?

Samsung-Galaxy-Note

Source code. Galaxy Note. AT&T.

What do you get when you combine those three things? If you said "source code for the Galaxy Note on AT&T," then you win a cookie. Go wait over there and we'll bring it right out.

Samsung just pushed the source to its Open Source Release Center for all to grab, but there is a catch. For some reason, there are three different versions of the code, all basically identical, save one line (thanks for digging through the code, JCase).

US Cellular back in May of 2011 announced that it would be rolling out 4G LTE to about a quarter of its customer base "before the holiday season." While that deadline may have come and gone without a word from the regional carrier, it just announced that the rollout is officially set to begin "next month" in select cities:

  • Milwaukee, Madison and Racine, WI
  • Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Davenport, IA
  • Portland and Bangor, ME
  • Greenville, NC

The company also announced the first two devices that will run on its LTE network: the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S Aviator.

Update: The link to the update is now working. Get on it!

Infuse 4G owners have been chomping at the bit for some Gingerbread love since the device's release in the middle of last year, and it seemed this morning they were finally going to get it. A moderator at the AT&T forums posted up the typical changelog marketing spiel, chocked full of customer benefits and exciting new fonts like 'Choco Cooky' and 'Cool Jazz' (I am not kidding).

Samsung has confirmed to TechRadar that the Galaxy S III will not be announced at Mobile World Congress. This lines up with what we've heard, and refutes earlier rumors that Samsung would be announcing the device in Barcelona next month. A rumor that Samsung never commented on until now.

What is confirmed is that the Galaxy S III will have its own event, similar to the Galaxy Nexus announcement. Of course, since this didn't come from "sources close to the matter" or "some guy I know who heard from somebody," we should obviously treat this with a healthy dose of skepticism.

If you're in love with the Galaxy Nexus, but also have an affinity for hockey, maple syrup, and carriers not named Bell, Virgin Mobile, or Telus, then you've been left out in the cold. Don't worry, though. The winter of your discontent is about to come to an end. The Galaxy Nexus will be landing on Canadian carrier WIND on February 3rd. If you opt for the carrier's WINDtab+ program, you can grab the nexus for just $249.

Yesterday afternoon, @SamsungMobileUS revealed that the company would be launching a "device so revolutionary only an ad in America's biggest game [the Super Bowl] can do it justice." Many on Twitter and across the web assumed it would be the Galaxy S III or a new tablet; while it was doubtful in light of recent rumors that it would be the SGSIII, the new tablet idea was at least feasible.

As it turns out, Samsung is "revealing" the U.S.

After Koush tantalized users with a video showing off the first official touch-based ClockworkMod Recovery interface two days ago, CWM has taken to Google+ and posted download links for the official beta, making CWM Touch Recovery available to Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S users.

Update #1: Nexus S 4G now supported.

Update #2: According to Koush, the newest ROM Manager update that is being rolled out now has a new option to download ClockworkMod Touch for supported devices as an in-app purchase (or for free at http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager).

Some unofficial builds have been floating around for a while, but tonight, it looks like Nexus S 4G owners are about to get some allegedly official ICS update action. Over on the XDA forums, user mrxkills has uploaded all the files necessary to get your Sprint Google Experience device updated to 4.0.4.

You read that right: 4.0.4. Compared to 4.0.3, the build we've seen passed around for a while on other devices like the Xoom and the Galaxy Nexus.
