Apologies for not being with the liveblog, I had an… altercation.
Anywho, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It is beautiful. While maybe not as thin as the Motorola RAZR, it still packs some key features.
First, LTE. While we in Britain may still have to make do with 3’s ‘honest, it is 4G’ HSPA+, those in America may actually be able to use internet on your phone now. Have fun with Netflix (or should I say Qwikster) on the 1280×720 display!
Secondly, Ice Cream Sandwich. The first ICS phone on the planet, anyone not allowed to update will be pretty livid right now (I’m looking at you Xavier). Bump-to-share, no physical buttons, data-usage manager and according to our friends at Engadget, unbelievable speed. Android might actually have overtaken Windows Phone again.
All in all, the Nexus is beautiful, thin, and apart from the camera, everything we hoped for/knew. The iPhone 4S has another fine competitor in the shape of the Galaxy Nexus. We’d have told you more, but not being in Hong Kong, we couldn’t.
