Didn't see anything new? Are you kidding? Screen? Amazingly fast Camera + it's features, face unlock(I won't use it), voice to text (lol, they messed up on they, hey man = mad?) instant, uh.. settings features, data manager, the AWESOME task manager to finally REALLY stop apps running in the background unless launched, gmail and other app upgrades, google + features from camera, panorama, everything else listed on the first page of this thread, etc.
Goodbye Droid 3.. this things goin on eBay for like 250-300 so it gets bought fast. Then time to use my Mom's upgrade.. it's like I'm just getting a free switch of phones.

I am totally getting this. I was impressed and this was the first time i watched something like this. I really enjoyed it and had my roomate watch it . He was thinking about the Razr but not anymore.
A lot new, and a lot of enhancements. I'm sure many like myself were hoping for something earth shattering, but what's left really? Just looks to be very, very solid all-around. My suspicion was ICS was finally going to be a pretty polished Android (the phone tech helps, too) and we are probably very close.
Don't know if they got the hardware acceleration in this or not. That's kind of the final piece. Re-sizeable widgets, stock, is pretty big too. Didn't hear anything about additional homescreens or any tweaks there - certainly hope so with all the added power and functionality. Of course, with my Sweeterhome launcher I can have as many homescreens as this thing can handle.
To me what really impressed was ICS. The NEXUS phone is cool and all, but I still am cool with my BIONIC. Considering there is no reason why it can't run ICS.
Now I just gotta wait for someone to put it on it
I'll just leave this here...
"It is because of the OMAP4460 processor that the Galaxy Nexus will only have the PowerVR SGX540 GPU, an antiquated beast from 2007 that can actually be found underneath the hood of last year’s Nexus S, and in the Droid Bionic. The SGX540 is very weak compared to the Mali-400 GPU found in Samsung’s Exynos SoC (the one that powers the Galaxy S II), and it’s positively snail-paced against the Apple A5′s SGX543MP2.
What this means is that the Galaxy Nexus is going to be slightly faster than the Droid Bionic, slower than the Galaxy S II by a small margin, and significantly slower than the A5-powered iPhone 4S. The Galaxy Nexus might have a larger, brighter, higher-resolution screen than the iPhone 4′s Retina display, but it won’t necessarily have the graphics chops to actually render OpenGL games at 1280×720 at smooth framerates."
About ICS, will phones with 4 buttons not receive ICS? Will there be one button that does nothing on older phones?
