I think I get a bum rap as an “Apple Fanboy and Apologist”. I don’t dislike Android at all, and I have owned and used a couple for work (original Droid and an Evo4G). I think Android has been great for consumers, is an excellent option and the whole thing is really a tech/nerd fight along the lines of Ford v Chevy or Samy Hagar v David Lee Roth.
Now that there is yet another “king of the hill” Android available, and yet another, newer, better version of the OS out in Ice Cream Sandwich, and the reviews are starting to pour in. I invite any of you with the new Samsung Nexus on the Verizon LTE network to email me your written or video reviews and I will post them to the site.
For the purposes of snapshot, here are the aggragated generalities from the reviews
Pros: Wonderful speeds, both processing and internet connection/big bright screen/Ice Cream Sandwich
Cons: Plasticky feel/camera isn’t great/speaker stinks
Conclusions: Best Android Yet, Ice Cream Sandwich is big upgrade
The Verge – Outstandingly comprehensive review, and a video review so good I’ve added it below
Engaget – Great video with side by side comparisons of the Nexus and other Android and a 4S
CNET – Short and to the point written, and a comprehensive video too
Associated Press – Generally positive review
TechCrunch – A review from an iPhone owner/user
