The wait is over: Galaxy Nexus is here
The wait is over. The Galaxy Nexus finally arrives. The specs of the phone were leaked like crazy, so there really isn't that much of surprise here. However, the simple fact that it's here is enough to bring a new round of excitement to Android fans.
As noted by many people, Verizon is nowhere to be found in the release party. On one hand, I think it is because both Google and Samsung want to make this a global launch (Japan's NTT DoCoMo is the only mentioned carrier in the presentation.) On the other hand, I think the release of the Droid RAZR earlier today is another factor. I mean, the RAZR is basically DOA. Priced at $299, it's on the high-end of the Android family, but after seeing the Galaxy Nexus, I am really doubtful that any serious Android user would choose the Nexus over the RAZR. May be a law enforcement office should get the Kelvar coated RAZR :-)?
