By the way, in airplane mode with only a bright white solid color showing the Galaxy Nexus consumes 2.9W. OLED consumes a lot of power displaying white so if you’re an owner make everything as dark colored as possible.

Update: via Engadget: A new version of Google Maps, with “better battery life”.
