In a rather unfortunate bit of news regarding Verizon Galaxy Nexus, a rumor that the device will not have support for Google Wallet has been confirmed. Apparently, Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus will also have some pre-loaded Verizon apps installed out of the box. Fortunately, Android 4.0 makes it easier than before to uninstall such apps should a user desire.
The phone has been highly anticipated because it marks the U.S. debut of Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android. However, Galaxy Nexus made debut in U.K. and GSM Unlocked flavor in U.S. as well. The Nexus boasts a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD touchscreen running at 1280 x 720 resolutions, which makes for an amazingly crisp display.
