Just when you thought the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Nexus could go no lower, Google has defined all odds. Google has posted the unlocked Galaxy Nexus for $399 in the new section “Devices” in the Google Play Store. The 16GB contract free Galaxy Nexus only works on GSM networks (T-Mobile, AT&T).
Google is also throwing in a $10 credit for Google Wallet, the company’s mobile payment service. This deal is literally out of this world and we can imagine that many fans will be running to the Google Play Store to buy their unlocked Ice Cream Sandwich Galaxy Nexus.
Let us know in the comments after the break if you plan on ordering one for yourself.
Rumors are constantly flooding the web, its part of the technology world. But what we just stumbled upon may be more then just a rumor.
A Vietnamese site has just posted a video of them playing around with the new Samsung Galaxy S III. Where did it come from? We don’t know. What we do know from the leak is that Samsung has decided to go with a 4.6-inch display with a 720 x 1184 resolution. A 1.4 GHz processor and 1GB of RAM keeps this Ice Cream Sandwich phone running like clockwork. On the back is a 8-megapixel camera with a 2050 mAh battery with NFC capabilities. The sight of a 2050 mAh battery is exceptional news as Samsung had promised that upcoming 2012 released phones would feature larger batteries. Storage wise there is 16GB included on the phone as well as a microSD slot for added memory.
One may argue that this whole video is fabricated and false, however, with Samsung’s official announcement right around the corner, we believe that this is the real deal.
Check out the video after the break.
Update: Looks as if the posting of the YouTube video was a mistake as the video has now been made private. Hmm, things are getting quite interesting now.
When the popular photo app, Instagram was finally released for Android, iPhone users were up in arms ready to wag war for territory on it’s once exclusive picture community. Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of marketing was also not too happy about the release of Instagram on Android, going as far as deleting his Instagram account.
When Schiller was asked about the release of Instagram for Android, he said
“It ‘jumped the shark’ when it went Android.”
After detailed research, the quote in a nutshell means that something has begun to decline and is beyond recovery. As a fan of all things smartphone it is quite ridiculous to think that people can get so upset over an app being brought to Android. At the end of the day, none of us are getting paid by Apple, Google, nor Instagram so why be upset about it?
What do you think? Did Schiller over react? Or do you think his actions were valid? Let us know in the comments after the break.

According to a recent The Next Web (TNW) report, Google’s rumored “Google Drive” service will launch next week @http://drive.google.com for Mac, Windows, Android and iOS and will include 5 GB of free storage.
I can’t wait to see how the service will integrate with “Google Docs” and how we will interact with Google Drive. TNW is reporting that Google Drive will work “in desktop folders” on both Mac and Windows machines.
I’ve been a long time Dropbox user, but may replace it with Google Drive as my virtual storage of choice depending on its implementation.
Do you intend to use Google Drive when its released next week?
The time is finally here, the Sprint version of Galaxy Nexus is now up for pre-order. The announcement came via Sprint’s Twitter page, revealing that the Nexus will be sold for $199.99 and would be coming to stores April 22nd. All signs had been leading to a tentative release by Sprint and now it is a reality.
With Sprint being the only major cellphone company that does not throttle unlimited data plans, will you be making the jump to the Sprint Network? Let us know in the comments below.
