Galaxy Nexus is here!

With all of the rumors and leaks just days before the announcement, Google’s 3rd Nexus phone is finally here!  Introducing the Galaxy Nexus, formally known as Nexus Prime.  Samsung gets another chance to redeem itself from its lackluster Nexus S showing.  Questions are already popping up on whether the Galaxy Nexus will have a removable battery cover and if the 5MP camera be sufficient?  What’s new in the Android 4.0?  Battery life? HDMI output?  The answers are coming, so stay tuned!  In the meantime, check out the tech specs below and check out the official Galaxy Nexus page here.
