I haven't been able to find a thread like this one, so I decided to post it, but feel free to move it if there's already one.
What are you expecting/hoping for in the next Nexus (or the next Google phone)? Specs, new hardware that enables cool things (like NFC did in the Nexus S), what company will make it (LG??), capacitive or hard buttons, screen size, etc.
Personally, I definitely expect dual core, if not quad core (because Ice Cream is expected to support it), and if Samsung makes it (probably not), then I would want Super AMOLED Plus.
EDIT: So far, this is what I want to have in the next Nexus:
-4.3 or 4.5 inch rumored Super AMOLED HD screen
-Tegra 3, 1.5 GHz dual core OMAP, 1.2 GHz dual core Exynos for a Samsung-made phone, 1.2 GHz dual core Qualcomm processor
-dual channel memory (like the Optimus 3D)
-All GSM/CDMA frequencies, with support for both Verizon AND AT&T LTE
-12+ mp camera with 1080p recording
-2+ mp front facing camera
-Personally, I would prefer hard buttons, but it doesn't really matter to me
-1GB of RAM

I really think that Google should just make the developer phone the EVO. Last year's EVO set the bar way higher for what a Android phone should be than the Nexus One did. I realize that the EVO came out after the Nexus, but my point is that they were handing out EVO's last year at I/O, and not the Nexus.
Let's face it, the Nexus S doesn't really do anything ground breaking. The only thing they really did thats new is the whole NFC thing which no one has a use for (yet). The Nexus S isn't even dual-core.
So what I'm trying to say is, I really think the next Nexus should be similar to the EVO 3D in terms of specs. It doesn't have to be 3D, because in my opinion I think it's kind of gimmicky, but that's beside the point.

And I bet everyone at I/O this year gets either a Nexus S or a XOOM.

Hope for a new gingerbread 2.4 that enables more 3d in basic apps to work well in the new 3d phones and with support for dual cores which are the new standard for high end phones
device should have qhd screen at 4 or 4.3, dual core at 1.2 or 1.5, 8 megapixel 1080p video, nfc, 3d

4-inch qHD screen (anything less would be stupid at this point)
Any non-Tegra dual-core chip (it's overrated IMO)
8+ MP camera
All GSM/CDMA frequencies, with support for both Verizon AND AT&T LTE (I'd settle for pentaband HSPA+).
After that, they can throw whatever they want in.

This is out there but this is a wish list:
4.3 inch 3D Super Amoled Plus Display (Concaved)
2ghz dual-core TI mobile chip (should release in 2012)
Dual 8 mega-pixel cameras for 1080p 3D Capture
2.0+ mega-pixel front facing camera
1 GB of RAM
Capacitive buttons is a must
And it needs to have every antenna possible stuffed inside it and available for every carrier.
That would be the ultimate Compu... (cough)... uh... phone

The next Nexus is going to be a Motorola. Based on upcoming motorolas here's what the specs should look like:
-4.3 inch qHD screen fronted by Gorilla Glass
-TI OMAP 4 dual-core processor
-1 GB DDR2
-16 GB onboard memory (or a microSD card)
-10 megapixel camera or greater
-1.3 megapixel FFC
-Either HSPA+ on T-mobile, or LTE on Verizon
-Ice Cream Sandwich
I'll bet money the next Nexus will be available in a GSM and LTE models. GSM is better for developers so they can switch out devices frequently, but LTE is also very important since developers need to start writing apps that make use of that high-speed connection.
