    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.

    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 :p

    dont worry about it...its been discussed.
    Nexus S only has internal storage and is completely hackable.
    also, my HP touchpad only has internal storage and has Clockwork MOD and CM7 installed on it.
    if the devs can put android on a product never ment to run android, they wont have an issue getting CWMR and custom ROMs on it.

    I read that as well. All I can say is, the numbers and terms and their seeming interchangeability is making me numb to the marketing hype.

    I just want to see the end product and if it performs better than the other options, for the purposes for which I will use it, I will buy it.

    In one phone, pentile "sucks ass", and another phone has the "best" screen yet then turns out to be,,,,, pentile!!

    Whatever. I will see and then buy.
