    does ICS for verizon nexus have an in-built file browser to access internal storage?

    Also, i'm guessing this phone doesn't have any sd card slot. Rigth?

    This phone DOES NOT have a file manger built into it. There are greatfree ones like Astro. But nothing currently built in

    this card does NOT come with a SD card slot. The phone has 32 gig internal memory though.

    I'm kind of wondering why they didn't see fit to add a built-in file browser. I understand that, since they're using MTP instead of MSP, as long as the user transfer the files through the "send to device" option, there's little need to browse for media files and such (they'll be sent to the appropiate folder automatically) but it's still kind of silly that, in a developer oriented device, you have to rely on a 3rd party solution to run an APK file.

    Maybe they took the "if you have a file manger, you blew it" thing too seriously :p

    I also vote that ICS should have had a built in file browser... hell it should have had a built in root file browser and terminal app! ;)

    I really don't understand why Google hasn't included a file manager in Android yet. Maybe they will in Jellybean.
