Verizon finally released the Galaxy Nexus and it just arrived for me to test out so in MobileTechRoundup show #256 Kevin and I chatted about some obvious differences and then went on to talk about how much we enjoy our GSM models with rooting and custom ROMs. Unfortunately, RIM shared some bad news this week and we asked what they can do to compete. Meanwhile, Amazon is having great success with the Kindles this holiday season. Kevin asked me if I installed the new Twitter clients and talked about his desire for a centralized notification service.

Please let me know if you have any topics you want us to cover on a future show.
