    is nobody else a little underwhelmed by the Nexus? not that it's bad by any means, but besides the nice/big screen, I don't see anything drastically new or different that doesn't appear to be, dare I say, kanged from either a current app or another OS.

    To me they took some features from some roms and made them stock, which is awesome, IMO. And they did make the camera more like the iPhone's which is also a big win for me. Plus the phone seemed to be very responsive. I loved the new UI.

    I didn't actually see the vids, just read the live blog with pictures and feature discussions... maybe that would help.

    I wasn't underwhelmed at all.

    As you said, the screen is pretty incredible, the size and quality are unmatched currently.

    It's camera looks incredible and had a lot of improvements. The panorama is something I haven't seen before personally. Zero shutter time is just something I've been dying to have.

    Android beam actually looks pretty amazing and I can't imagine what people do with it once they start using it for more features.

    I think you'll always find hints of other apps/OS features in any device, as you have to start somewhere. It's sort of like how Siri wasn't anything new, we've seen it for years, but apparently they have improved upon the program.

    I guess we have different ideas of marketing.

    I'm following a device that I'm interested in, I'm looking at the facts and the abilities that have been presented. I'm not looking at a commercial or seeing a celebrity using something and believing that I have to have said device.

    I believe it was found that 34% of people who bought the Iphone 4g thought they had 4G internet speeds, that's what I call falling for marketing.

    well to be fair it was 34% and 28% of android users thought they had it when in fact they didn't as well.

    Plus I view that more as a failure of education on whatever sales rep sold them the phone. Whether it be an Apple employee or a carrier rep selling Android phones.

    Sorry but we do not have different ideas about anything.
    You just have a complete misunderstanding of something clearly defined in the business, pr, advertising and marketing world.
