    Don't know, why do they release their flagship and give it a 5mp camera. I know that's a niggly thing to talk about and I don't really care its just curious. The GSII has an 8mp camera. You would think this phone would beat that phone in every regard. 1 gig of ram, So does the GSII. 1.2GHZ, going by some rumors, same as GSII. I don't get it. That's why those specs seem a bit off.

    This.

    When I think Galaxy, I think TouchWiz. While of course, when you hear Nexus, you think pure Google Experience. While it may not have TouchWiz or anything on it, it sounds stupid to combine those ideas. I didn't wanna believe these rumors that there are 2 separate devices. And it's really starting to sound like Verizon is dropping the ball once again. Why skip out on the SII to be the first to get Nexus, only to get what is starting to sound like the lesser of the 2 phones coming out.

    +1. If these specs are true, the should just call it the Samsung Galaxy 2.5 or something. Or maybe they should have just went with the GSII anyways... I guess i just don't understand why they would make several DIFFERENT phones/phone models with such closely similar specs (i.e. Nexus Prime - however many "different versions" of it they're making (???), and the GSII)

    I don't know if I buy these specs. Something seems fishy here...

    Oh, maybe it's the tuna.

    I'm starting to get the feeling that Verizon is skipping out on the best possible Android phones, because they wanna start catering to Apple now. Ever since it made it's way to Verizon, it's all been about iPhone. Open up the Shop tab on Verizon's website....iPhone 4. Go to pay my bill....preorder iPhone 4S. It's truly amazing how the #1 Android provider seems to be missing out on all the flagship devices. If that is the case, I may need to start looking to go back to Sprint again. I don't really need the fastest 4g speeds. Having unlimited everything for a much less price would nice as well.

    Maybe there's still hope that this thing won't be gigantic. Even if it's 4.5" I'll feel better about it. I just can't see a 4.65" screen not being a monster of a phone, soft keys hidden or not.

    No SD means nothing to mount though. And, SPR is outdated anyway. Even if RZR came to the Nexus, I can't see how you would mount the SD. May it changes to mount filesystem?

    I think I read on some forum or web site (don't remember which one) that Google was trying to encourage phone manufactures to increase the available storage on their devices and discontinue the SD card. Think about it. On a PC or large mainframe computer the slowest part of any processing is moving data from a phsycial device to the CPU processor so much so that on many mainframe computers when a call for I/O is issued the CPU will swap the application out and beginniing working on another application that is resident CPU, and in doing so it lets I/O routines handle the data movement. The CPU processor will return to the application after the data has been read from the disk and moved into storage.... so from a performance standpoint it might make sense to increase on board storage and eliminate physical storage such as an SD card.

    I don't care as long as I can transfer my data to my PC or other device.

    I back-up using ES File explorer via wifi all the time. I think you can also do it over bluetooth, and I'm sure there are some other file managers that do it as well. Not as fast as USB, but pretty darn easy and convenient for moving a few hundred megs back and forth.
