    This is where I get confused and sometimes I think reading the web can be a net negative.

    I am watching all the upcoming phones, with an upgrade in hand. One of the phones I am most interested in is this Nexus.

    I want cutting edge technology that will deliver an awesome smartphone experience. But, gaming? Beyond AngryBirds, gaming means nothing to me on a phone.

    If all this negative hoopla over the processor is over using a chip that is not optimized for gaming, then I think it is stupid. And if it turns out they used this chip to maximize all the other aspects of the device, then I cheer the whole development team and this would indicate to me that they went with a very well thought out design. This would increase my already unrealistic expectations for this device.

    Their use of a 5mp camera made me think they were ignoring the typical numbers to sell things to ignorant consumers who only relate to higher numbers. I am hoping they did what it appears, and went with a high quality 5meg camera instead of stuffing 10megs into it just to brag is how you end up with a Bionic camera.

    I am going to stand by and watch, and buy the device with the best reviews in the next few months. This article gives me more hope that it will end up being the Galaxy Nexus. If somebody finally has the balls to produce quality gear and disregard the typical crap that sells to the lowest common denominator types, it will be good for all consumers.

    This is a good illustration of what I was saying above. I appreciate your effort, but I have no idea what that link was pointing out.

    I only care about relative performance. That is the only way I will know if the Galaxy Nexus is bad ass or not. The numbers may as well be Mandarin to me.

    Same on the angry birds comment.

    Never have nor never will care about extensive gaming on a phone.

    I don't care about anything other than a quick time killer for the rare times that I have any time to waste.

    Rather play on my Xbox 360, with a controller on my 55in plasma and surround sound.

    Just want browsing to be immaculate, please a battery that lasts a day. And hopefully no gps problems. Those are anyone's biggest concerns I think.

    I didnt buy my phone to play NFL madden on it.

    Everyone loves the fact that it has navigation, browsing options, big screen and 4g....work with THAT, something that competitors don't offer yet and base your design around that. I think that's what they did with this phone.
