The first Android 4.0 device is here. Verizon started the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus today. The Galaxy Nexus puts you back $299.99 with a 2-yr contract. Amazon Wireless is offering the Galaxy Nexus for $199.99, but is backordered.
The Galaxy Nexus features a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display technology at 720p resolution and a 1.2GHz dual core processor. The GALAXY Nexus is the first smartphone to feature a 4.65-inch display with a resolution of 720p (1280×720px).
Other features of the GALAXY Nexus include 4G LTE, 5MP Camera (why not 8MP?), 1GB RAM, 16GB/32GB Storage, and a 1,750mAh battery. Measurements of the GALAXY Nexus are 135.5x67.94x8.94mm and the weight is 135g.
Succeeding the original Contour Display of Nexus S, GALAXY Nexus comes with a rounded shape that fits within your palm or to your face for phone calling. Hyper-skin backing on the battery cover improves the ergonomic feel of the device and makes the phone slip-resistant. At just 8.94mm thick, with a minimal 4.29mm bezel, GALAXY Nexus still provides portability alongside an expansive screen.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
