Samsung, Google launches Galaxy Nexus that uses Ice Cream Sandwich
Just before the festive season, it is smartphone season in the US. After Apple launched iPhone 4S and Motorola launched Droid Razr, Samsung and Google unveiled its much-awaited Samsung Galaxy Nexus. But it was not only the new phone that was launched during the Samsung event in Hong Kong on October 19, 2011. The two companies also released their upgraded Android – Ice Cream Sandwich.
This phone comes with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 32GB storage, 1GB RAM, 4.65 inches of Super AMOLED HD screen, 5MP rear and 1.3MP front camera.
Google’s Android has been a success all across the world, and Samsung too has acquired a respectable, if not dominating, position in the smartphone segment. The rise of Samsung in this segment has been remarkable.
When all the tech giants were thinking smartphone, Samsung was still experimenting with its basic phones. It started late, but took off really high after its slow beginning. Samsung’s Galaxy line has been particularly impressive, especially its Galaxy S II, which is a tough competition to Apple’s iPhones. Its Nexus S too was well accepted by consumers.
The best part about Ice Cream Sandwich is that it can work on any mobile device.
