Samsung Galaxy Nexus shows off its back side as we near the official unveiling

We've seen quite a bit of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the past little while but as we get settled in for the full unveiling things are starting to come together -- like the Galaxy Nexus website.

Surprise! There's going to be a GSM version of the next Nexus phone, which also will be coming to Verizon. Go figure, eh?

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....

ICS on Youtube

Android Developers YouTube channel confirms what you already knew: Ice Cream Sandwich at CTIA

Given how ridiculously goofy the Internet's gotten today, we suppose one more story won't hurt. The Androiddevelopers YouTube channel has a placeholder live event up, cryptically named "Android ICS Launch." It's timed to go live on Tuesday. That's also when the Google-Samsung event is scheduled...

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...

Something big is coming from Samsung -- as they just let the world know with their latest video for Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011. The event this year will be held during CTIA in San Diego, CA where we're expecting to see the Nexus Prime fully revealed. You can hit the break for the video - not...

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. That's not surpring since it's a Nexus device, but surprising because it's Verizon. Some of us (cough) thought would never happen. (And I'm required by law and/or Phil...

Samsung and Google appear poised for some possible Ice Cream Sandwich at CTIA

Behold the invitation to the Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 "Google Episode" at CTIA in San Diego. So...

Android 2.3.6 rolling out to some Nexus S owners - Fixes voice search, breaks tethering

Some Samsung Nexus S owners are seeing Android 2.3.6 roll out to their devices. We say some, because not all devices and not all carriers appear to be supported as of yet, though Google states the update will be rolled out over time and in some cases -- depend on carrier approval. Sprint has an...

The Droid Prime -- Just as Uncle Jerry predicted?

Who needs anonymous sources when you've got a witch like Jerry Hildenbrand? Here, in his own words, from last week's Android Central Podcast, is Jerry predicting a Nexus-caliber smartphone with Droid branding. Or, maybe Jerry and those anonymous sources are all wrong.

How might a Droid Prime affect the future of Android's Nexus line?

Perusers of our Rumored Devices Forum were the first to learn weeks ago that the Nexus Prime is (a) coming to Verizon and (b) we should expect it in October. But what if it's a Droid-branded device? BGR brings that bit of unofficial info this morning, adding that it'll be the SCH-i515, and it's an...

Motorola won't have exclusive on Nexus devices, Andy Rubin says

So what does Google's acquisition of Motorola for $12.5 billion mean for Android's Nexus program? (For those new to the platform, that's Google's yearly "Pure Google" phone -- basically a developer-level phone that's also refined enough for consumer purchase.)
