What will the three buttons on the bottom of the screen be. The usual android phone from what i have observed at least always had 4 buttons. a back, menu, home, search (i have a droid 1 so its the d1 order. the order i know has changed for other phones). Will the galaxy nexus change the function of any of the buttons or just completely get rid of a button. My thought is that a big "bye bye" and a "get lost" will be sent to the search button, which in 2 years of my d1 i have never had/felt the urge to use. Anybody know what the plan for the three buttons are?
and one more question. the galaxy nexus screen includes the three buttons on it. if an application is run that does not use the buttons, is it possible that it uses the button space to get a bigger screen? im guessing yes but it depends on how its coded i guess.
