Bye-bye BlackBerry...

and hello Samsung's Galaxy Nexus running the new Android 4.0 OS code-named Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).   Here's a comprehensive review of the leading edge smartphone.

I've ditched my BlackBerry Storm2 during my two-year upgrade cycle with Verizon and acquired this new device at a nicely discounted price.  I've been using it for three weeks and absolutely love the vibrant display, and battery life is good for a 4G phone.  I eagerly await the ICS upgrade on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 that is presently running Android 3.2 (Honeycomb).

In sum, it's awesomely awesome technology.  Highly recommended.  I'll post more later about what I personally regard are indispensable Android apps.


  1. Best android app.. "Earthquake alert" can be filtered by magnitude, and has direct links to a location map, and links to the USGS updates that are related to the event you click on.

  2. Galaxy tablet takes the place of black berry and now it goes to compete nokia and I phone too.
