The device will as always, introduce new technology— while making existing technology a little bit better. Read on past the break to have a brief breakdown of what is known and what we can expect in this new superphone.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Users Affected by Reboot Bug

The new Samsung Galaxy Nexus is an extremely amazing phone. I love mine so much my sweetie fears that I will run off with it. It’s the first device to run Android 4.0 and the first “Google Experience” device on Verizon’s network. However being that it’s a brand new device with a brand new OS it’s sure to have its own set of bugs and problems.

As it is, numerous users are reporting that there is a bug that causes their devices to randomly reboot. Most that are reporting the bug are those with the GSM model, however, Verizon’s CDMA model isn’t free of it. There isn’t a pinpoint cause for the bug as it can happen while streaming music, playing games or even when the device is idle. Users are finding that the frequency of the issue happens more and more as time progresses but Google has indicated that they are aware of the problem and are investigating the issue. Are you guys having these issues?

Mystery Xoom update begins roll-out this evening [Update, its ICS!]

We have been aware of an impending update for the Motorola Xoom for some time now, and tonight we may finally find out what has been shrouded in mystery all this time. A minor update, or what we’re all hoping for, ICS.

Here’s the email popping into inboxes of those who signed up for the Xoom “Google Experience Device” Testing.

Thanks for your patience as we’ve waited for this project to begin. Because we are dealing with a Google Experience Device (GED) we have less insight to timing than we would usually have.
However, I’m happy to announce that we will start the update this evening. Because it was delayed a few days, we will also have additional time to test; we will let it run through the weekend.
Remember to keep your feedback in the private community provided, and in the survey I will send after a few days.
Please go here to access the private site and to learn more. Note that you will not be able to post on the other areas of the site during the soak — this project is confidential.

The link in the email is yet to be functional, stay tuned.


Confirmed. ICS rolls out to test participants starting at 9pm PST 1/12/2012 and will continue throughout the weekend. Assuming no extreme issues are discovered, Motorola says they will very likely release this update to the masses. A group of some thousands of Xoom Wi-Fi owners will receive the software upgrade which includes some random participants outside of testing as well it seems. Good luck Xoom owners!

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
