The Galaxy Nexus, Apple’s Worst Nightmare, Is Finally Here

By Steve Kovach

At long last, we finally got our paws on the Verizon model of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus.


There’s not much different between this version and the GSM unlocked version we’ve been using for several days now. But right off the bat, we’ll say it’s noticeably thicker and heavier. We actually think that’s a good thing, since this model feels a lot more substantial than the original.

It also runs on Verizon’s zippy 4G LTE network, so you’ll get speeds that are a lot faster than the HSPA networks on carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile.

And yes, Verizon did include two of its own bloatware apps. They can’t be uninstalled without hacking into the phone, but you can disable them.

We’ll have a full review of the Galaxy Nexus in a few days. Check out the hands on photos for now.
