Cool! My Wife has a Galaxy Nexus, the firmware everyone in Australia is
stuck on is crap (4.0.4 is buggy and was on my Nexus S for a short time
before google released an update). She hated it till I loaded the firmware
straight from Google and now loves it. Regular OTA updates FTW!

Yep, although not available in Australia. Must need to go through some
arduous government process to be certified as it looks to be powered via
the same micro usb port as the phone.

However it looks like our friends in China may be able to help us out!
