Live Blog: Galaxy Nexus / Ice Cream Sandwich Event

It’s time to see what is new in the world of Android. Samsung and Google are about to drop Ice Cream Sandwich and the Galaxy Nexus on our laps – are you ready for them? Live blog is rolling after the break with the DL crew. Be sure to watch the event live with us though at Youtube.com/Android.  

Comments are still open down below as always, but we also have this platform up so that we can easily share pics, instant thoughts, etc. as the show rolls on live. You can send comments through it as well, but we can only approve the really good stuff. :)

  • trumpet444

    Will the mainstream media outlets be crapping their pants over the features in 4.0 like they did over ios5?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OOO7GVPXWATBC75FGMUTLHJJME SjB

      probably not, because soccer moms won’t be buying it.

    • Al Heasley

      nope, apple has them brain washed into thinking their istone is the most magical device ever created.

  • Ahsan

    Ship world wide?

  • Bionic

  • Ahsan

    wow they’re going head to head with the carriers with that crap.  you know that’ll be removed before it hits consumers.  they need that $2 or whatever it is per month for visual voicemail

    • Bionic

      • Anonymous

        that’s the one thing i really miss from owning an iphone.  that was very nice and convenient.  the F if i’m going to pay verizon $3 or whatever it is per month for it knowing it’s free for iphone people.

      don’t forget removable battery and unloackable bootloader (it has to be said, it’s vzw)

  • Ahsan

      Ha… NOT EVEN CLOSE

    • bigrob60

      I won’t even use my shaving razor ’till this come out. Just to prove how amazing this is going to be.

    • letsmotor

      A bit off topic but has there been any mention of the droid razr being upgraded to ice cream?

  • Collin

    Can anyone post a link to the actual video? It’s not showing up for me on the channel page. >.<

  • Mojo Filter

    I want to filter OUT the hipsters!

  • Bionic

    I dont like that photos automatically upload to G+.  wast of data

    • LiterofCola

      it’s a setting that you can toggle

    • Anonymous

  • Ahsan

    Fast camera.

  • Anonymous

    wow suck it iphone users.  camera looks awesome

    • Bionic

      I wonder if it will vastly improve out camera once bionic gets the ICS update?

      • Anonymous

        now that would be incredible.  i wonder if it is software or hardware that’s the problem with the bionic?

        • Bionic

          prolly a little of both.  but mostly software

  • Bionic

    Holy crap i envy that camera.  the bionic camera is soooooo slow to shutter

  • Anonymous

    Ok. I’m sold. ICS has a ton of great additions!

  • Anonymous

    I could care less about this phone I just want ICS

    • Bionic

      same here

  • Kierra

    So the face unlock thing doesnt work right? I probably wont be using much of it but still wish it was smooth. 

    • Bionic

      im sure it will be debugged

  • Anonymous

    i really think i may be selling my bionic next month… shit

    • Bionic

      im happy with my bionic.  even if i wanted to sell it I could only get 200-300 for it.  Retail for this phone will be 600 probably

      • Anonymous

        i know.  it’s going to be a horribly irresponsible financial move.  but i want it.  as long as they don’t come back with that locked bootloader crap

        • Bionic

          im sure it will prolly be unlocked.  Besides im sure ICS will come to Bionic next year 

          • Anonymous

            next summer.. maybe

          • Bionic

            summer?  why so long?  I was thinking early next year

        my friend pointed this out at work today though (he’s an android geek too):
        http://www.gazelle.com..
        looks legit.. said i could get $297 for a bionic in perfect condition.  figure you could probably get $300-$400 on ebay at least at that point..

        • Bionic

          big maybe.  dont matter, im keeping mine.  like i said, im confident bionic will get ICS

          • Anonymous

            me too.  just a matter of how slaughtered it is by the time moto/vzw is done with it

          • Kierra

            moto is good with updates. It will get it probably after the nexus series. 

          • Bionic

            especially considering google owns them now

          • Anonymous

            let’s hope google keeps them on a leash!  it’d be awesome if they became google’s pet manufacturer.

            imagine every presentation like this started with andy rubin leading sanja on a leash hahahaha

          • Kierra

            Feb?

    • Billy Jenkins

      lmao. I could’ve told you this would happen 2 months ago when the Bionic was released

  • http://profiles.google.com/drastik651 Jim Kalista

    The video just went to HD

  • Atkinste000

    im going crazy its so awsome

  • Billy Jenkins

    I want to see face unlock work by the end of the night

  • Supersailorearth

    So far I have yet to see a feature that shouldnt (theorhetically) work on my Thunderbolt.

    • Billy Jenkins

      True. I can’t wait until they either release an official ICS update for thunderbolt or someone from xda releases an ICS rom for thunderbolt

  • Alexander

    Supreme fail with the face recognition. 

  • Some Random Dude

    Im in love :)

  • Slythefox13

    LOL face unlock bombed

  • Anonymous

    ouch face unlock fail

  • Bionic

    Ok this phone knows your face?  ICS = Skynet

    • Anonymous

      this is how skynet finds john connor

      • Bionic

        LOL

      • Granted

        I’ve already found John Conner, he it’s setting lobsters free in a supermarket, instead of acting in a decent movie.

  • http://profiles.google.com/drastik651 Jim Kalista

    o WOW!! Face LOCK

  • http://profiles.google.com/drastik651 Jim Kalista

    NICE

  • Bionic

    I really hope Bionic gets ICS sometime early next year

  • Loquera

    Droid RAZR who?????  THIS 5H!T is AWESOMEEEEEEEEE   

  • Tyrian

    I feel that Google has taken everything our beloved developers have created and incorporated it as their own

    • Bionic

      smart business

    • Billy Jenkins

      nothing wrong with that. Now there might not be any reason to download another home replacement and waste memory. Now all the popular features will be built into the OS

  • Al Heasley

    Does the suit come with the phone?

  • Anonymous

    this is sweet.  i hope this kills manufacturer skins!

  • Billy Jenkins

    is everything he is talking about now part of icecream sandwich? like the ICS update will have scrollable widgets and resizeable widgets on every phone that has the update?
