    Folks need to stop buying phones with no SD slot. That's the only was to let them know we don't like that....

    They are trying to make people rely on streaming files, media, etc.

    But with data caps and the battery drain that streaming invokes, " its not going to happen.

    Even if adding a sd card slot added to the production cost(I doubt by much) people would still rather pay a little bit extra for it.

    But ok, omit the sd card slot.... But bump up the internal storage..... Because I know that really has little impact on production costs.


    Makes no sense... HD screen = HD movies..... Aren't most HD movies about 8 gigs in size?

    Blue Ray rips are much larger I believe.

    depends on the file type. I don't think the lack of SD and removable battery has as much to do with cost as it does with size. As previously stated, it's only a rumor thus far. We'll see what's reality soon enough

    I'll understand the non removable battery is a design decision, and but whether you have 8 gigs or 64 gigs of internal storage, the size stays the same.

    I didn't hear about the disagreement with VZ and Google. I was curious about why LTE wasn't mentioned. As for the storage, that still don't add up. Even for a Nexus device in terms of development. Now I'm wondering why is there a 32gb Nexus 7 coming out.
    Huh.

    What are the chances of verizon bringing back the unlimited family data plan for $30? It seems more likely that verizon will flat out not bring any more nexus phones then I will be leaving to t-Mobile... I'm sorry I have a droid x with a grandfathered in unlimited data plan and I can't upgrade because I fear will lose my data plan even if I buy a phone through eBay or Craigslist I shouldn't have to tiptoe around to avoid the new contract! t-Mobile is offering unlimited everything for $50 and I get to divide the cost of the phone for two years? Count me sold specially when gsm phones get faster upgrades and with less hassles than cdma phones!

    Rather astonishing there is no ext-sd slot. Even if they shipped it without a card, that could be acceptable.

    Im extremely interested in seeing what they do with the GSM GNex after this launches. If it goes down to $250 or even $200, there might be a bigger freakout than when the Touchpads went on sale for $100.

    They would rather sell them through the play store unsubsidized and most people will pay 400 for a phone but phone would pay 700-900 which is what phones with those kind of specs cost such as the note 2
