The Galaxy Nexus and Google’s Android Ice Cream Sandwich have finally approached in North America, not in the U.S.
On Thursday, Android fans in Canada had the opportunity to purchase Samsung’s new Galaxy Nexus smartphone as it released on Canadian carriers Bell for $159.95 and Virgin Mobile for $159.99. However, the Galaxy Nexus, the initial handset to work on the highly anticipated Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, still has no U.S. release date or price. It seems to be a big regret for the US. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Nexus has been available in Britain for weeks and is releasing across Europe over the coming few days.
The Galaxy Nexus will work on Verizon’s 4G LTE network, featuring a 1.2-gigahertz dual-core processor, a massive 4.65-inch touch screen with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, and 1 gigabyte of RAM. In addition, the tablet will be equipped with 5-megapixel rear camera capable of shooting 1080p video and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front for video chatting, no physical buttons on the curved face of the device. Among specs, the back of the Galaxy Nexus looks similar to the Galaxy S II and the LG Nitro HD.
Along with the launch of Galaxy Nexus, Android Ice Cream Sandwich- Google’s first operating system designed for both smartphones and handsets is also available. Ice Cream Sandwich is the version of Android that Google expect to get hardware makers on the same page. In the past, many tablet makers got failure to issue software updates for older phones when newer versions of Android are introduced.
Whether Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich will make its milestone in the future, it will be answered soon in the coming time?
