Check out all the details on the Galaxy Nexus here
Erica is about to get some hands on time, so make sure you check back soon for all kinds of multimedia goodness.
Well, it's over now. That was exciting.
Works for sharing games, joining group chats, and all kinds of other stuff. They're shipping the API's for it, so developers will be able to go to town. The SDK is available as of right now.
You can send something as simple as a contact file, or if you have a map up on your screen, you can just tap it on your friend's phone, and the map opens up there, too.
They're showing off Android Beam, which is very similar to Bump, but it uses NFC.
High res photos, magazine-y look to it, all your info in one place.
The new People app looks fresh, way fresher than before.
50 Cent. Really? He's apparently popular among the Android crowd.
New People app that's an evolution of contacts. Where have I seen that before?
This time-lapse video they're showing on the webcast looks pretty goddamn spiffy.
Time lapse is a part of the video app? That's awesome. Awesomer still? You can take stills while shooting video with the Galaxy Nexus--just tap on the screen.
Instant upload to Google, of course.
Aha, panorama photos are also a part of the package. I dig it.
The new gallery is much prettier-like.
Also red-eye removal and other editing tools built into the redesigned Gallery app. But who cares, as long as your photos look like they were taken in the 70s.
HIPSTER FILTERS, MY DREAMS HAVE COME TRUE.
Photo editing, ooo. I wonder if they have instagram-style filters.
Face detection in the camera software, built-in. The camera looks pretty quick, between the zero-shutter lag and fast multi-shooting.
Instant camera access from the lock screen: now table stakes.
This breaks it down by app and gives you fine-grained control over how each app is using data. Nice, particularly given how multitasking in Android is a little more open with background apps than iOS or Windows Phone.
This is all handy, since despite setting all kinds of limits for how much data you can use, carriers aren't doing the best job helping you manage it and know what you're doing.
This is how much data you're using.
So now you've got controls to better manage your data, and to see how much you're using.
"People are going to be using a lot of data. That's just a fact."
Every core app gets an update.
The new calendar's redesigned to be easy to read, even when you super busy. Pinch zoom--done.
One of the most requested features in Gmail: offline search. It's here. And you can search the last 30 days by default, but you can change it to whatever you want.
The new consistently shifting action bar vaguely reminds me of Windows Phone, though.
The new Gmail looks hot. You know, as far as Gmail goes. Animations, one-touch access to common controls, two-line previews.
Porn mode. On your phone.
Bookmarks automatically synced with Chrome, that's awesome. And you can save pages for offline reading. Maybe I won't need a decent Instapaper app for Android anymore? Doubtful, but it'd be nice.
