First GSM Carrier to Offer Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus

i wireless is pleased to be the first GSM carrier to add the Samsung Galaxy Nexus to their extensive Android lineup. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus runs on Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, which is the latest version of the Android platform. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is now available at i wireless locations and for $199.99 after mail-in-rebate with a new two-year agreement.

Android 4.0 offers users a refined and simplified experience with easier multitasking, richer notifications, resizable widgets, and new more powerful ways of communicating and sharing. With all new features and applications, Ice Cream Sandwich allows you to drag an app to get information about it, uninstall it or disable a pre-installed app all at the touch of a finger. Additionally, Android 4.0 utilizes a new typeface that is optimal for high-resolution screens which helps to improve readability and makes devices more user friendly.

“i wireless strives to deliver the latest innovative mobile entertainment devices to our customers,” Maggie Squires, Director of Corporate Development at i wireless. “We are thrilled to be the first GSM carrier to introduce the Samsung Galaxy Nexus as the latest addition to our complete lineup of Android-powered 3G and 4G devices.”

Customers are able to access 4G coverage in select i wireless markets, as well as in areas where T-Mobile provides 4G service, including Des Moines and Ames, Iowa. Currently, T-Mobile’s high-speed 4G network continues to expand and is now available in more than 217 markets, reaching more than 200 million people nationwide. Whether accessing email, sending an invoice, getting directions or uploading photos, customers stay connected and informed virtually anywhere life takes them.

The Galaxy Nexus’ 5 Megapixel camera with LED flash is enhanced with decreased shot-to-shot speed and zero lag exposure, which make capturing moments faster and easier. Plus you can edit and share photos and videos easily with friends through many social media avenues. Additionally, the Gallery Application makes it easier to manage photos and videos and it comes equipped with its own photo editor with the ability to crop, rotate, remove red eyes, and much more.
With Android 4.0 offering some new and some updated features and applications the Galaxy Nexus is bound to amaze.
