Google confirms no Google Wallet on Galaxy Nexus

We already knew that Google Wallet wasn't going to be on the Galaxy Nexus, but until now, it was purely speculatory. Unfortunately, Google has confirmed themselves that Wallet won't be on Verizon's Galaxy Nexus, and it was at the behest of Verizon themselves (shocker, I know). Says Google:...

Editorial: Carrier IQ -- the 'evil' we agree to and hate that we did it

Seems like every time you turn around you'll see corporations using sneaky tricks to gain a competitive advantage over a different, yet equally sneaky corporation.  That's usually how money is made by the people who are best at making lots of it -- at the expense of others.  The cell phone...

Verizon says 'exclusively' for the Galaxy Nexus ... But it's not exactly true

So right about now everybody's freaking out over what so many feared -- and what many of us have been saying for quite a while.

Editorial: It's OK to take a breath

Way too much hay has been made over Google and Samsung's decision to postpone Tuesday's Nexus/Ice Cream Sandwich event at CTIA in San Diego. It's disappointing, to be sure -- especially to those of us who were going to be there. Samsung and Google events, separately, are something to experience....

Samsung bringing contact charging back to the Nexus?

We're getting a little too excited over this little feature, but it's one we're happy to see on another phone. See those three dots we're circled in Samsung's teaser of what's to come next week at CTIA? Those point to probably contact charging. That's a feature that never quite took off like we'd...

Supposed 'list of files' for Verizon Nexus Prime leaked, bloatware free

A list of the installed apps in the ROM for the Verizon Nexus Prime has been leaked, and they are unsurprisingly bloat free! OK.
