    With much of the world still without the Galaxy Nexus many of us want to hear as much as we can about the phone. A couple of tidbits have sprung up from the official Galaxy Nexus Pre-Release thread at AndroidForums.com.
    First up, Paul from MoDaCo, the same guy who brought us the ever-so-useful UI tweaks, has achieved USB Mounting. This will allow you to plug up many things to your Galaxy Nexus using a microUSB male to USB female cable, including wireless mice and keyboards as well as flash drives.
    [​IMG]This sort of functionality is oft-desired on tablets and it’s no less cool on phones, especially if you plan on hooking yours up to a TV or monitor and using it as a makeshift PC of sorts (though the MHL port wouldn’t be available for HDMI mirroring). [Twitter via AndroidForums.com]
    Secondly, Joshua Topolsky from The Verge has been using his Galaxy Nexus and has something very promising to report regarding its battery life. He says on a pretty heavy day of usage he was able to squeeze out 17 hours of battery life and still have about 13% left.
    While battery life depends on whoever’s using their phone and how much they’re using it, it sounds very promising. If you already have the Galaxy Nexus be sure to tell us how battery life is working out for you. [AndroidForums.com]

    I said it before and I'll say it again, I was never worried one bit.

    While all this sounds good it really sucks that HDMI and usb devices will not be able to be used at the same time

    That's why it's a plus Verizon is getting the 32GB of internal memory. If you want to use the HDMI mirroring you put the file on your phone. Only in a perfect world would you have the option for both.
