    I'm sold. This will be my next phone. The current demonstration of ICS is absolutely amazing.

    I like the face unlock feature.

    Even if it didn't work well in the demo.

    He tried to play it off well. It looked like it never reset after not recognizing the first guy. I think I am most impressed with the ability to flick away notifications and running applications. I was also extremely impressed with the data usage feature and the ability to limit an apps ability to run in the background. The no-lag shutter is also pretty amazing.

    The flicking stuff was cool on WebOS. Hopefully it's just as good in ICS.

    Now I've said it several times and I'll say it again, Google is starting to lead the pack for innovation!

    In what way is it not "quite as super-high-end as the recently unveiled Moto Droid RAZR?"

    One side note, I wasn't impressed with was the quality of the video feed and sync of the audio. You would think that it would be high quality HD stream being that GOOGLE owns YOUTUBE and this has been planned to be announced on the web.

    So what's the GPU??? Is it the SGX543 that's in the 4s???

    If it doesn't have a really sweet GPU, I see this as a fail.

    *Edit*

    NVM, found it.

    "It is because of the OMAP4460 processor that the Galaxy Nexus will only have the PowerVR SGX540 GPU, an antiquated beast from 2007 that can actually be found underneath the hood of last year’s Nexus S, and in the Droid Bionic. The SGX540 is very weak compared to the Mali-400 GPU found in Samsung’s Exynos SoC (the one that powers the Galaxy S II), and it’s positively snail-paced against the Apple A5′s SGX543MP2."
