Android fans seem to have been side-tracked the past week with the ASUS Transformer Prime taking over the rumor mill for the time being. Or maybe we’re still recovering from the great let down of 11/29. Maybe everyone is afraid of throwing out another possible release date before December 8th rolls around. Maybe we’re all just jealous that the rest of the world gets their hands on that ICS-loaded beauty of a phone before we do. Well, here’s a little pick-me-up to get you back on the edge of your seat for the Galaxy Nexus here in the US.
A video of Verizon’s LTE Galaxy Nexus shows off more than just its boot animation. The videos shows that the phone is currently running Ice Cream Sandwich, which is no surprise at all. However, it does show that there are two Verizon apps that seem to have been pre-installed: My Verizon and Back-up Assistant. I highly doubt anyone will mind seeing that these are two very useful apps for the normal consumer. So we’ll excuse it this time, but only because it looks like we have to. But the rebranding from “Google” to “Verizon 4GLTE”, not so much, but we’ll live with it.
It’s good to know that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus does actually exist. It looks great, but I bet you this phone would look a thousand times better in our pockets come December 8th.
