The Galaxy Nexus will be reaching the US pretty soon, expected to be released by Verizon on its LTE Network. What this means to be me is, I will once again become an early adopter to something new that came out, just like last time when Motorola put out the Xoom tablet; it was the only device with Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) which included new features such as: Holographic interface, no physical buttons such as the NO capacitive buttons as seen on most Android based phones, and improved multitasking. The year before the Motorola Xoom for me was the Motorola Droid, the first smartphone with Android 2.0 (Eclair).
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be the first new line up of superphones to run Google’s new OS, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This new release will finally intergrate both Phone and Tablet releases into one now, gone are the days of having two different release products for Phone’s and Tablet’s.
Some new features of Ice Cream Sandwich include: Android Beam, Face Unlock, NFC, Buttonless Phone, Zero Shutter Lag, Panoramic Mode, and more! It will be interesting how these new features work, I know for one that I will be excited to see how the Face Unlock works, granted I know this isn’t a complete secure method of locking one’s phone from the outside world.
