Google and Samsung convened with media members in Hong Kong Oct. 18 to unleash the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, a next-generation 4G LTE/HSPA+ phone, which runs Google's latest Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich" operating system. Borrowing effects from the Android Honeycomb tablet branch, Ice Cream Sandwich includes better notifications, software navigation buttons, multi-tasking and holographic widgets. There are also near field communications (NFC) capabilities to let users tap their phones together to share applications and YouTube videos. The phone has a big, 4.65-inch display powered by a 1.2 GHz processor. The phone will be available in the United States, Europe and Asia beginning in November and will be gradually rolled out to other global markets. We're guessing it will cost $299 in the United States with a carrier contract, possibly from Verizon Wireless. Check out these photos of the Galaxy Nexus in this eWEEK slide show.
