Galaxy Nexus Promo Video And Registration Pages Live, Spec Recap

The Galaxy Nexus, Ice Cream Sandwich event has come and gone but you can relive the glory by visiting the official Galaxy Nexus website over at google.com/nexus. There is a “register now” option and we highly suggest that you take the time to register so you know the minute this thing becomes available, hopefully for our beloved Magenta.

After you take care of the registration direct your attention below to the two minute promo video and a highlight of the Nexus/Ice Cream Sandwich debut. Please ignore the 21 second mark with Verizon Wireless, we already knew that was going to be a guarantee. As you can see by our spec sheet below we’ve highlighted the penta-band support with clear T-Mobile AWS capability. So, we’re not giving up any hope of a T-Mobile supported variant.

    I guess worth noting is that it doesn’t say the HSPA+ capable version with T-Mo bands won’t be region specific while only the LTE variant does state that it’ll be available dependent on region.

      The LTE version will be availble in the US on Verizon.  That’s a lock.  What’s not known is well it be on T-Mobile anytime soon.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Simon-Yu/100000989859895 Simon Yu

        Obviously, but I meant to note how it doesn’t state the HSPA+ version will be exclusive to any region.

      Did you not see the t-mobile hspa+ 21mbps bands in the spec sheet that david circled?

      • http://tmonews.com David

        That does NOT mean it’s coming…it means a T-Mobile capable variant will be available somewhere in the world.

  • J. Williams

    I just want the ICS on my GSII, and I will be good from there.  GREAT DEVICE though.  The Galaxy Nexus, is going to crush all, just like the GSII did and still does.  This 4.0 is just simply amazing!  T-Mobile will have it soon…

    • Fish

      lol…GSII will never see ice cream sammich…have you not paid attention to samsung’s rep regarding OS updates?

      • J. Williams

        Fish…I have. And this WILL be on my GSII. Don’t hate… congratulate.

        • Fish

          not hating…just warning…GSII is great hardware.  i’m gonna go ahead and say “i told you so” now, that way i don’t have to reply to your “where’s my ICS?” posts 6 months from now…GS3 will have ICS, but that’s how they get you, you’ll buy another phone before they push an update to you…

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CNT4STRR32F4334TXB65VVNT3Y Rampage

          or you can always install a custom ROM (cyanogen)

          i love that the basic android os won’t be basic at all with this ICS….  but rooting is one of the major reason why android is the #1 os in the world…  no matter what they leave out.. just buy the hardware that suits you best and mod it up…  i love it…  this new os is sick..  im drooling right now..

    I really hate getting a$$ed out of new releases because some bigger fish gets exclusive…my nexus one is getting old and would like to have a newer faster device

  • Anonymous

    I think this is the first time that you can FINALLY SAY that google OS no longer needs home screen replacements, rooting, manufacturer overlays, etc. 
    Google has FINALLY become the captain of their ship. 
    I was SHOCKED at all the new features. 
    When they unveiled the Nexus I dont remember their being this level of features packed into the Google OS. 
    Bravo Google!

    Bummer it doesn’t take a microSD, if I was able to have 64 gigs total storage, I would ditch my iPod and jump on this right now.

    • WW

      agreed…a way for them to rip you off for $100 for something that normally costs $25 (at retail) and is more versatile. same reason i didn’t buy nexus s. i was so looking forward to it but this may be a deal breaker.

  • QDOG8

    HSPA+ and 4G LTE. ..does this mean Sprints not getting it?

    • HTC Pyramid

      I wonder the same.

      I though that sprint was changing its WiMax to LTE?

  • Anonymous

    Could the little android people’s color be symbolism? You have a red android he would represent verizon. You have a yellow android that would represent sprint. You have a cyan android that would represent AT&T and then you have the Green android for the original android carrier, t-mobile.

    If it has the T-Mo bands, couldn’t we just buy it from another country (on eBay or wherever) even if T-Mo doesn’t officially support it?

  • Rsg_1

    Although T-Mo will support this phone, it won’t sell it like the previous versions of Nexus.  The Nexus S was exclusive to Best Buy last time around and this time it appears it will be exclusive to Verizon.  However, we could probably buy this from on-line retailers like Amazon Wireless, Wirefly and some others for full retail price near $600.

  • Anonymous

    IF…I SAY IF STRONG!  If it comes to T-Mobile.  I think they would have the best phone lineup EVER!   Samsung Nexus + Samsung GS2 + HTC Amaze/Sensation and hopefully a comeback for Windows(HTC Radar) …  

  • BP

    Everybody please don’t get your hopes up.  T-Mobile has shown over the last few months that they just want to be sold to AT&T.  Until we see an official article, don’t believe its coming.

    • Rsg_1

      It may not come to ATT either and officially only to VRZ. It will support all frequencies though and you may have to pay full price for one at $600+.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CNT4STRR32F4334TXB65VVNT3Y Rampage

        Where did you get this $600+ figure? It may be close to that but I’m just curious.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HK7ALWU4PMZC7SUZ4NZLXDT6R4 Chad

        I’m fully prepared to pay full price for this phone, had my money ready for quite sometime now. My guess will be anywhere between 529-550 for the 16gb and add 100 to either one of those prices for the 32gb model. Even if it doesn’t come to Tmo it’ll still be readily available to purchase through Amazon, Expansys, eBay so I’m not worried about that at all, the main thing is it supports Tmo bands

    Barometer?

    No 42mbps = no thank you.

    5MP camera and SGX540 are also bummers, not the mention a smaller battery compared to the GSII.

      Not really, I love my Galaxy S2. You will live a sad life trying to keep up with the latest and greatest.

      • Kyle3

        LOL! well you have to love you $$$ child regardless. I would sue Samsung for making you phone totally obsolete after 1 week.. Lets see: 1260×760 vs 800×480, ICS vs 2.3, Pure Google experience vs Touchwhiz, NFC, 1750mAh battery vs 1650, first Google updates vs none if ever, no physical buttons, barometer, newer processor..

        • AfricanKing

          I went to a T-Mo store to check out the SGSII based on the satisfaction I got from my Vibrant and to me it just appeared to be a magnified Vibrant, save for the speed and a few updates here and there but almost all else to me was just about the same, even visually; I was not impressed. Definitely not something I would consider an upgrade, more like an upsize…so I held off. Glad I did.

        • Bobby Phoenix

          SGSII has an 1850 battery.

      This phone is the climax of Android. nothing else is better. windows phone 7 is death.Apple will be catching up for long time. I love the UI, the crazy fast full of features camera. That beam feature almost gave me a heart attack. the lock screen is great i loved it on honeycomb. the face unlocker out of this world!!! everything seems so smooth. the web browser is amazing. TO all of those who are saying that mine is better, downgrade blah blah blah crap. go cry to your pillow  is not my fault  you already spent all your money  on whatever phone u did and now you feel outdated. If you love your galaxy s 2 or iPhone , blackberry …. why bother coming here and comment on it. I am because i love it and i will be buying it!!!!

      yea like u really need so called “42mbps” in a cell phone! be thankful that it’s gonna make it to T-Mobile.

    • http://twitter.com/Smov3RocShorti3 DaeRoc

      Only data cards for laptops get 42 Mbps. Research the SGS2 on HSPA+ 42 Mbps, which only gets up to18 Mbps. So don’t cry for sorrow cry for excitement!

    It’s beautiful! Can’t wait for pricing

  • Calvin

    Can anyone explain the samoled to me? Besides the higher res, is there a difference between this and the samoled plus on the gs2. I guess what I’m asking is why isn’t it called a HD Super Amoled Plus screen? Would the “plus” just be redundant or is this screen not as vibrant as the gs2?

  • nerdlust

    This is an awesome phone but no sd card slot. Maybe when its released I can scoop an amaze or galaxy s2 for a good price. Perhaps cloud storage?

  • http://www.facebook.com/iiJecire @Jecire

    If anyone has logic clearly Samsung  used the SAME hardware style frame as they did on sprint an tmobile versions just different internals and the my epic touch fly’s im sure it will be even more sufficient with an upgrade!  4.65 minus capaciative buttons roughly same 4.5 in screen .It will be interesting to see how they “skin” these phones htc and Samsung need to stick to the manufacturing and APPLICATION’s like media hub social hub etc since I get the want to capitalize in all areas BUT stop skinning the OS it is no longer cost effective and waste of time and money.

    Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ but only to 21mbps…isn’t the Samsung Galaxy S2 good for HSPA+ 42 Mbps on TMO? So, the flagship phone is slower…

    • Tito!

      you guys are idiots, right?

      welll. . . the Nexus wasn’t just a built for a T-Mobile audience.
      I mean 42 Mbps would be great.

      If you want it, you’d have to go with a different processor.
      the Nexus is too sacred, and is completely free of carrier say when it comes to electing a conductor supplier.

      Maybe wait for the GSIII? :D

      the Nexus is still a sexy beast.
      I, personally would like to see ICS run on a Galaxy Note as well. haha

    EPIC FAIL!  Cool to look at but really…. it stops at HSPA+ 21??? Really????? And this is why Samsung sucks!
