Galaxy Nexus Receives 5 Minute Hands-On Video Just Before Tonight’s Announcement

As we all wait patiently for the Samsung and Google event, a German technology website has posted a hands-on video of the highly anticipated Galaxy Nexus. The video shows off the new Nexus boot animation along with the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich user interface. The video was uploaded then suddenly set to as private, but thanks to our friends at Android and Me, we have it again. 

Anyone else as impatient as we are?

    Why is it that we are always caught in the middle?  Yet again it’s a 3-way tie between getting the new galaxy nexus, buying the galaxy s2 hoping it receives ICS in less than 6 months, or in the same time frame buy the galaxy s3 only if the 2ghz dual-core and 1.5 gb of RAM specs hold up.  One thing  is sure unless HTC pulls a “ONE MORE THING” fairly soon or Motorola remember that it’s possible to make blur free droid Samsung has my money in the bag

            Really….Verizon.  Hum…on the site doesn’t say anything about nexus….says about the razr though…

    • LiterofCola

      It says LTE moron

    Dear Galaxy Nexus,

    I need you in my life.


  • Ahsan

    I’m confused. Is their a menu button on 3.0/4.0? Whats that button with two rectangles on it?

  • Someone want to explain why a 200mhz bump in procc speed makes the nexus the cutting edge vs the bionics “last years tech”? It’s the same god dam SOC just binned…

  • JG

    my god the music on the Android youtube page is makes my pee pee tingle.

  • Some Random Dude

    Gots my laptop hooked up to my 50 inch LCD  … like a boss  8)   im ready for some ICS 😛

    Phone looks like crap.  Very plain and no frills.  RAZR looks so much more pleasing and that is more what the consumer cares about.  Quad-cores FTW!!

  • Mr_Snrub

    I don’t care what the MP count is.  The camera is supposed to be much of better quality, which is what matters.

    Face Unlock too.  That’ll be sweet.

  • just_some_nobody

    Why are the buttons at the top of the phone?

  • Tcali

    $300 you say?
    As a consumer, there is no way I would condone that! Especially without that mouth watering, South Korean, piece of beauty Exynos or MicroSD Card capabilities. *sighs* I guess my Ol’ Droid & I will have to wait for the Quad-core Wave…

  • Hep

    I hope this is my next phone.  I’m tired of waiting to replace my OG Droid.  And with a locked bootloader and no removable battery…the RAZR has failed me.  Running out of options.

  • kurttrail

    Paginated app list? WTF!

    On a tablet, I can deal with it, but on a under 5″ device, swiping each page is a PITA.

    • Ahoy

      Yeah, that’s kinda lame.  I was kind of happy to be leaving that behind on my Tbolt (less of a happy surprise with the gingerbread update), but oh well.

      Devs at Rootzwiki or XDA can fix that for you.  Just like in Sense 3.0

  • Pardes33

    Do videos play at FULL 720P resolution (landscape mode) on this puppy ?  worried about those lost pixels for soft buttons ….
