I was dead set on this phone until lately...
Anything I'm missing?
Links to where these things were officially confirmed.
Agreed. I'm pretty sure you're off base with the GPU and Non-removable battery. The sd card though, is a definite possibility. Not necessarily a bad thing though since internal storage provides faster read/write capabilities anyway.

I concur. Not to mention 5mp camera? I KNOW mp aren't the most important camera spec, but c'mon man?!?
We will know officially soon enough, but that GPU is certainly popping up all over the web...

I dont care if the camera is 3-4 MP (seriously, because I have never once blown up a cell phone picture, so it is meaningless to me) AS LONG AS they focused on the quality of the sensor, and lens and making a quality, snappy camera. 5 mp is fine with me.
The GPU concerns me, but admittedly, I am not very tuned into this. I read the speculation also about the GPU from like 2007. Now, I dont know if this means it is the same gpu, unchanged, or if they started with this gpu and tuned and optimized it until it was perfect for this phone. I mentioned this earlier today after I first read that speculation. In the end, I will have to see it to believe it. I cant believe they would drop a $2 gpu in a $20 dollar screen. (But, weirder things have happened I suppose. Look at the Bionic)
The permanent memory card doesnt bother me at all. I never pull the SD card from any of the phones I have had.
If the battery is not removable, I may not like that. I mean, I am open to hearing the justification as to why they would do it, but it would have to be a hell of a reason for me not to find this a net negative.
The only deal breaker of all these would be the GPU. I dont care how old it is, as long as it maximizes the virtues of this high horsepower screen, and I get a screen that is bleeding edge, and blows me away every time I look at it, I am good to go. But if it compromises the overall display, and I am not wowed by it, I doubt I will buy this phone.
This was part of the reason my Bionic went back, that and the horrendous camera.
Bottom line. I will be shocked if they put a $2 gpu in a $20 dollar display. Time will tell.
So if there is no removable SD card how would I get everything from my TB to this phone? Normally I just swap SD cards.

What size is the SD?
If you're into hacking then no SD is a huge deal breaker. I have yet to see a custom recovery on a device with no external memory. Can't be done.
The Nexus S has no external memory card, yet has CM7 on it. OG Droids can be SBF'd to have CWM, I don't see a problem here.
I was really curious about this.. Could you partition the internal storage to make a "virtual" sd card?
Interesting, you can flash any zip from internal storage on bionic in CWM. I wiped and switched roms that way when I had put a zip in the wrong drive by accident. No issues at all.
I dont have a PC, I have a Mac.....will that work? I have had trouble rooting with my Mac I have had to use my wife's PC but I am stationed in Miami and she lives in Va Beach.

It has a removeable battery!! Makes me wonder if you guys ever look at the pictures on Engadget.com !
They even said the NFC was somehow linked to an antenna in the battery (wonder if that makes the battery more expensive).
It looks like there are two slots in the back, one for 4G sim, could the other be for SD?
It's been confirmed that the Galaxy N does NOT have the ability to use a memory card. Good thought about the price of the battery though, I bet they're going to be pricy.
yep i was wrong, the Nexus S has no SD slot, but has clockwork. i assume the internal is partitioned. It still concerns me to have only one storage feature. Not sure if there are any issues on the Nexus S as I've never messed with one.
There must be some sort of dedicated storage.

The gpu is pretty much my ONLY concern. Lack of bluetooth 4.0 seemed weird to me too... Even the moto fitness watch has it lol
I'm not too worried about the camera after seeing it in action. Wonderful

that would be the deal breaker for me.....
