Ugg! Why does Verizon get all the fun. So yes, the latest phone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was released, to sport the new Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 operating system. Man, I hope Sprint will get it soon. Lots of new features, including:
- finally native installed ability for screenshots. No more special apps, no more rooting (even though I am)
- NFC support. Only the second phone with near filed communication. The next thing in wireless communication. Initially for lots of vendors–you tap your phone and use it to pay for things (including SHEETZ!), but also the Beam functionality to share with other nfc phones
- Like Honeycomb, the ability to resize apps and widgets. VERY nice!
- Face unlock. Yes, you unlock the phone with your face.
- And 0f course, a whole new UI
Can’t wait! Hopefully we’ll get the Galaxy Nexus or another nfc phone on Sprint soon. Even though I am not due until next summer, I would definitely step up from the EVO soon!
