Yes folks, the highly anticipated device is now available in the US and you can start queuing up at Verizon and Costco locations. The flagship Android smartphone is selling on Verizon Wireless for $299.99 with a new two-year customer agreement, so in case you are wondering to take a bite out of the Ice Cream (pun intended) Sandwich, then you know what to do.
This feature rich smartphone runs on Android™ 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, which is more intuitive and dare we say cooler than its predecessor. Other features include; a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED™ Contour Display with 720p (1280×720) resolution, stunning 1080p video capture, an impressive 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with zero-shutter lag, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video chat and the now mandatory Mobile Hotspot capability. However, it is the Face Unlock feature that excites us the most as one can unlock their device via state-of-the-art facial recognition (how Hollywood of Samsung) technology and up their geek ante.
Interestingly right after its announcement, the Android 4.0.2 build ICL53F update was announced that claims to further enhance the device. So download it and expect the 3G connectivity to work faster, some minor “visual improvements, and pesky mail errors to be fixed.
