    I don't know if this is true or not but SGN not having flash would be an issue for me. Also don't like it not having removable memory. Anyone else confirm this? I really want a Galaxy Nexus but now I'm having second thoughts.

    Every Android phone you buy will eventually not have flash (or be woefully obsolete). The Razr and the Rezound will stop having Flash next year. That quad core coming down the road will not have Flash. Eventually, with mobile browsing being such a significant platform (thanks to Android and iPhone), most websites will stop using Flash.

    Somewhere a kitty dies and a new baseless rumor about a Nexus release date is posted.

    If a kitty has to die for me to get a Nexus, that's perfectly fine with me.
