Generally, we let Taylor do most of the unboxing videos here at Android and Me, and for good reason. Simply put, I suck at them and don’t have a dedicated videographer brother capturing it all so I don’t have to fidget with the camera while trying to show off the latest gizmo. Or at least that’s what I tell myself. I generally don’t mind being on camera, but avoid it as much as possible.
Tonight, I was able to get my hands on the Verizon-branded Samsung Galaxy Nexus, thanks to our trusty local Verizon PR folks. I’ve spent a grand total of about 45 minutes with the device, but I can say with certainty that it is the nicest Android phone that’s been put on the market to date. Sure, there’s been a ton of hype, but we strongly feel that the device will live up to the hype. Ice Cream Sandwich is that good, and the innards of the Galaxy Nexus are more than powerful enough to show it off.
We will have a full review of the LTE Nexus up in the next week or so. For now, enjoy my crappy unboxing video and accompanying screenshots below.
