Our first challenger yesterday stepped up with a brand-new Galaxy Nexus, which, if you’re not familiar, is the latest Android phone from Google and the first to sport Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The challenge was to find a 4-start Chinese restaurant nearby, then find directions to it. Here’s how it went down:
As you can see, his voice search and my Local Scout search gave results just about as fast. But Local Scout gave me reviews, apps to use to make reservations…and instant directions. He didn’t have a quick way to do that on his Galaxy Nexus.
More to come from the $100 challenge. Keep an eye on my tweets for updates the action!
