Samsung Site Confirms Galaxy Nexus On Verizon And Posts A Picture

Somebody jumped the gun over at Samsung.com.

A search for "Galaxy Nexus" on their web site will get you this page. It sports a fancy new press shot of the GS and a one line description, "Sign up to get the latest on the Galaxy Nexus from Verizon."

So there you have it. The Galaxy Nexus is on Verizon. The wording makes it sound like it's exclusive to Verizon, doesn't it?

Motorola Droid RAZR Bootloader Locked, But Are You Really Surprised?

It was inevitable that the question is the bootloader locked? would pop up within minutes of Moto's RAZR announcement. The answer should come as a shocker to no one: Yes. According to Moto's Twitter, the bootloader will indeed be locked. It's not necessarily Motorola's choice, though, as the tweet specifically states that "the bootloader was locked per the carrier" Oh snap -- it was all Verizon's fault.

Galaxy Nexus Ad Shows Up, Confirms Nearly All Specs

Hot on the trails of this morning's Galaxy Nexus confirmation comes yet another leak of the device, but this time it includes some eye candy. It looks like it's a Japanese magazine ad of some kind, but all the important parts are in English, including hardware specs and Android version number. Have a look:

Here's a rundown of what this ad does tell us:

  • 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display (possibly rounded up from the rumored 4.65)
  • 1.2GHz OMAP4460 Processor (likely underclocked from 1.5GHz)
  • Ice Cream Sandwich will indeed be Android 4.0
  • Galaxy Nexus is the official name

All this information lines up with what we've been hearing for the past couple of weeks, so it's more of a confirmation than anything else.

[Exclusive] Ice Cream Sandwich Will Finally Bring Native Screenshot Capabilities To Android

In what will probably be the last melting drop of the Ice Cream Sandwich leaks (oh the puns), we wanted to highlight one highly desired little feature ICS is finally going to bring to Android after all these years - native screenshot capabilities. If you thought 2 years was a long time for Apple to implement copy/paste... let's just say Google definitely has that record beat.

Update 10/18/11: Confirmed during the ICS unveiling:

Users of some Samsung, HTC, and other devices have already been enjoying this feature for some time thanks to manufacturer additions, but based on what we've seen so far (and we've seen quite a few things), the Galaxy Nexus will be able to take screenshots without the need for any external apps, root, carrier mods, or other nonsense - support for it is now baked into the core of ICS (I wonder if it tastes like caramel).
