    Not me. The gs2 was going to be my next phone, but when I heard about the Galaxy Nexus, there was no doubt that the Nexus was the one I had to have. If I have to buy the phone unlocked and pay full price, then that is what I will do.

    Yeah GS3 should be coming out 2 months after the HSPA Nexus comes out on the other carriers, I'd wait if I wasn't on Verizon. Remember the GSII came out nearly 8 months ago now and it's still very relevant and even comparable to the 3 phones being released now. I imagine the GS3 will be ahead of it's time as well.

    The SG3 won't come out until Summer 2012 and that's a guarantee.
    Besides... nothing can beat a Nexus other than another Nexus.
    The incoming quad-cores? I'm not impressed. Don't need crazy cpus, work on other parts of the phone. It's overkill imo, and I'm a hardcore gamer.

    I agree that quad cores are worthless, but the GSIII will have a better GPU and a Super Amoled + screen. So it's definitely in the ring against the HSPA Nexus which will be a few months old by then.

    I don't think it will be Summer, Samsung is pumping out devices almost as quick as Moto=P I may be calling it a little early, but I'd say we'll see it by April, which should be around 2-3 months after the HSPA Nexus release.

    I had my Droid 3 for 2-3 months before I sold it off for the Galaxus... if the screen is terrible on my new phone and the gpu is failing, i might consider switching.. other than that, theres really no reason to lose the great things about the Nex for a slight improvement to an already killer scree and gpu (outdated but overclocked and best option, no probs here). :)
    The Nexiii just has too much to offer ;p

    I think it will be a while before we see widespread use of dual cores on phones as far as apps are concerned. By the time having a quad core is really useful you'll probably be close to an upgrade if you get the Nexus.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm getting the Nexus on Verizon and wouldn't trade it for anything, I'm just pointing out something people on other carriers will have to think about when the HSPA Nexus is released.

    I'm getting the HSPA+ Nex because VZW doesn't have prepaid 4G plans. Really excited ^.^
