Galaxy Nexus Roundup: Android OS Update on First Day, Extended Battery with NFC, and One More Spec List

When you cruise into a store to pick up your Galaxy Nexus on Friday, December 9, you will be prompted to update the OS within the first few hours of activating. We are sort of guessing here, but would expect that to be Android 4.1 that hit test devices last week. According to the document above, it does not appear to be very large in size – should only take 3-5 minutes to install. Whatever is included must be some sort of fix to the issues that were holding this phone up.

Below, we have a look at the accessory lineup that should mostly be available at launch. Many of you will be excited to see an extended battery of 2100mAh with NFC capabilities on the list. It also doesn’t appear to have those sharp jagged tank edges and extensions that the Rezound, Bionic and Thunderbolt all had. You may be able to throw this battery on your phone and not be the inside joke of your friends. Otherwise, it’s most of the stuff you all saw in the video demos of accessories from late last week, but know that the portrait HDMI may not be ready just yet. No landscape dock either.  

And here is one more look at specs to help button things up.

Everyone ready for this?

Cheers ___!

    Does anybody think we can change the battery cover on the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. I’d like to switch it with the original Non-Verizon one.  I can’t stand that they had to brand it with there logo, and ruin its beauty.  Where would someone get the original cover, and would it fit?

      Oh, wow. Scratch it off or something. That’s like not eating food because it looks bad. Not that big of a deal, broski.

      So you want to replace one brand with another? Makes sense.

    If I hadn’t just been fired from 60k+yr job on Saturday, I would enjoy buying this phone even more.  Ah f-it you all know that I am getting it.

    I have a question: why the hell can’t we pre-order this phone?

    Verizon knows it’s a major release yet they want to sweep it under the rug because it doesn’t have Droid branding. Frankly, I don’t care about their branding. It’s a major release and I want to preorder so that I can go to a store, pick it up, and know it will be there. I don’t want to sit around in a line hoping to get my hands on it. 

    This is absolutely insane handling by Verizon.

    So he could totally be lying to me or maybe he had no clue what he was talking about, but I just talked on the phone with one of the store reps for the Rancho Cucamonga, CA Verizon store (my local store). He said they have not received anything regarding the release of the Galaxy Nexus and he thinks it may be an online only thing because of it being pushed back so much. errrr

      He was lying. Trust me.

    I can’t imagine an extra 250 mAh will add that much thickness to the phone.  That will be nice to have some extra juice without the usual pregnant look extended batteries tend to give 4G phones.  No offense pregnant people.
