    Default Nexus S, Honeycomb, and the touch sensitive buttons.

    Do you think google will actually just cancel out touch sensitive buttons all together or give you a choice when it comes to phones. I think having a home button on the screen and also a back and menu button would just take up app room, and not fit the screen very well. Other thoughts?

    It will be up to the manufacturer whether a phone has hard inputs. The android approach has always been to give manufacturers and consumers choices.

    No, what I am saying this with the NS it will feel "weird" having those buttons there but they would be unusable and just not needed.

    What I'm saying is they'll be usable but not necessary.

    Kind of like the trackball/trackpad on a lot of current phones, I would imagine.

    Nobody knows because we haven't seen the phone version yet.

    That's why I said "do you think"

    I think when honey comb comes to ns, the menu button would perform as the multitask button on xoom.

    Honestly I think Android phones could do with less haptic buttons. It totally gets in the way of gaming and ergonomics. 1 or 2 physical buttons to take you home/back would be sweet.
