Samsung Galaxy Nexus appears in 5 minute hands-on video before big unveiling

Dieses Video wurde von einem Android-Telefon hochgeladen. Oh you don’t speak German? This random video just appeared on YouTube with the description, “This video was uploaded from an Android phone.” Looks real to me. Real sexy. What do you think? Developing…

    Looks real to me, too. We have less than 3 hours to confirm, I guess. Can’t wait.

  • alex

    ICS is so smooth in that video

  • http://keridel.blogspot.com keridel

    it does look really slick. love the transitions very good

  • tron

    the guy in the vid says (min 4:26) that it “certainly is not a final version” (of ICS), no idea why they say it, they don’t really seem to have any idea anyway…

  • ben dover

    see the i9250 sticker on the back!? looks like the GSM version is the same as the verzion version.

  • kwills88

    This thing looks super smooth, oh my, I can’t wait, can I take a nap and wake up just for this

  • BiGMERF

    Please excuse me…. Im still crying and sobbing in a corner.. I cant believe it is a verizon exclusive

    • kwills88

      Even if it turns out to be an exclusive, let us not forget that ICS won’t be.

  • What

    Its private now? Someone rehost, its been less that an hour, geez that was fast

      Yeah it got pulled. I guess that confirms it is real. Didn’t see the need to download the video and re-upload with the real announcement coming in a couple hours.

      WTF >:|

      Anyways, I’ll be right back, I need to change my underware…

  • M3rc Nate

    I’ve seen it on GB phones (Droid 3) but i really dont like the side scrolling of the app drawer. I really love my experience with the G2 and Mytouch 3G where the drawer was vertical scrolling. Made it stand out even more from the iPhone, and now if that ICS is stock, just gives more fuel to apples fire that android is copying. I wish they would stick with the vertical scrolling.

  • GetGood

    There is a GSM variant already. Why is everyone complaining about verizon exclusive, it is a nexus, it won’t be VZ exclusive forever, guarantee that. There is already a GSM variant, so that obviously won’t be the case.

    • M3rc Nate

      I wish they had part of what made the nexus brand special is that everytime they came out with a nexus phone it was on all 4 carriers. Kinda like how the Galaxy was on every carrier, except it would be identical on every carrier.

  • Zomygodowned

    Damn, clearly someone used an iphone 4s to record this..

  • The Android Advocate

    Chaps, chaps..all may not be lost yet. I offer another hypothesis for consideration: Theorum: Could we all in our anticipation have latched onto the moniker ” Nexus Prime”..which may be the project/code name for the unrevealed product. We have seen GSM certification requests, which indicate there is a version for Tmo and Att out there somewhere. After all..Google has launched the last two iterations on Tmo, why would they ignore there existing user base, who naturally will trade up.

    Final Thought: Samsung will certainly want credit for this flagship unit, that will launch ICS, that is a major feather in their cap.do we really think that they would not insist the product have Galaxy in the name…we all know what the association means…Samsung… #iPH4Slayer
