Reston, VA – December 15, 2011 – The wait is finally over. Wirefly (www.wirefly.com), the Internet’s leading authorized retailer of cell phones, smartphones and cell phone plans, today announced it now sells the most anticipated cell phone of the year, the Galaxy Nexus by Samsung, available exclusively from Verizon Wireless. Customers who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Google’s latest flagship smartphone and the world’s first device with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), can snatch their very own Galaxy™ Nexus™ off Wirefly’s virtual shelves just in time for the holidays – and at a special Wirefly price.
“For months, the Galaxy Nexus has been a hot topic on Wirefly’s facebook, twitter and blog, as well as the most asked about device at our call centers. It is clear consumers have been anxiously awaiting the launch of this incredible device,” said Andy Zeinfeld, chief executive officer of Simplexity, Wirefly’s parent company. “We are so excited to be among the first to offer this iconic device to our valued customers and, as always, at a great price.”
As the third installment of Google’s acclaimed Galaxy franchise and the world’s first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-powered smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus boasts a laundry list of impressive new features that are quite simply- out of this world. To begin with, the device is fast - incredibly fast. In addition to operating on Verizon’s fastest, most reliable 4G network in America and running the Android 4.0 operating system, the Galaxy Nexus is equipped with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM delivering high performance, increased productivity and maximum speed.
Ice Cream Sandwich also improves upon Android’s user interface by making it simpler and more intuitive to use. Examples include easier multitasking, richer notifications, resizable widgets, customizable screens and an enhanced web experience.
With an enormous 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED Plus display (1280 x 720), the Galaxy Nexus not only offers the largest screen available on any Verizon Wireless smartphone, it is also the first phone in the U.S. to use HD Super Amoled, making it most advanced mobile visual display currently on the market. Consumers will delight in the high definition viewing experience with superior colors, sharper images, smoother graphics and enhanced readability – perfect for watching movies, TV shows and playing games from anywhere. And the AMOLED display’s greater efficiency means that the Galaxy Nexus’ battery lasts longer.
Other exciting features of the Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.0 include:
Face Unlock which uses facial recognition to unlock the device;
Cutting-edge near-field communications (NFC) capabilities, which will eventually make contactless mobile payments possible;
5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, zero shutter lag, instant upload and 1080p full HD video capture;
1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chatting;
Detailed data usage monitoring with customizable alerts;
Fast, more powerful voice input engine for dictating texts;
Android Beam™ to quickly share Web pages, apps and YouTube™ videos with friends by simply tapping compatible phones together.
