This is a sad and a joyful day. Verizon’s HTC Thunderbolt was the first 4G LTE smartphone that I had. I remember the blazing speeds of receiving 10 – 20 mbps! However, as of today, December 15, 2011, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has come out on Verizon. This is the first phone in America to have Android 4.0 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich). I am selling my HTC Thunderbolt on eBay (if you’re interested, hey let me know!) I will officially be getting the Samsung Galaxy Nexus tomorrow. I woke up at midnight last night to order online. I knew the Verizon stores would be sold out by the time I got off of work on December 15th. Therefore, I figured one more day of waiting isn’t going to hurt. Plus, I was guaranteed the phone then.
I will no longer be downloading custom HTC Thunderbolt ROMs and posting reviews on my site. However, I will continue to offer support and guidance for all past discussions to the best of my knowledge.
On top of that, I’m not sure how often I am going to be loading custom ROMs onto the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I will have to wait until I get it. However, since this is pure Google, I will not have to worry about Verizon’s bloatware on the phone. With that being said, I may bring WireValley back to talking about the latest technology going on in my life. I’m always looking to discuss with people the latest changes in the tech world on a more personal level.
Anyway, I will let you know how I like the Galaxy Nexus! From the reviews, it sounds like I’m going to LOVE it!
