    • The rear-facing camera comes with an LED flash
    • Smaller form factor = 0.88 pounds, half an inch thick
    • No full-sized ports = Instead has the usual mini-USB and micro-HDMI sockets
    • A headphone jack & docking connector
    • A microSD slot
    • Android 3.2,
    • Completely Stock Android except for a Swype keyboard option
    • 16GB and 32GB versions
    They didn't indicate pricing or availability, but they hinted at early December for less than $400. You can see a few more pics and a video at the Engadget source link.
