Evo or Nexus?
In anticipation of Sprint releasing the Nexus S I have tried to get myself acquainted with the device.
I am unsure if I want to go with the Evo or the Nexus S. I was about a strong winds blow from choosing the Evo. But now I´am going to wait to see what Sprint releases this 22nd.
I have never had an Android device and will be coming from the HPalm Pixi.
I have seen how to get around no LED notifications, is there a way to assign a physical camera button?
Also, is the nexus able to do some kind of face to face? Even with Skype? If no is it possible it could happen with an update?
Final query, whats the cheapest you have seen the Nexus for? I know when I was shopping for Evo´s I saw it at $149.99
Thanks for all opinions guys and gals.

Yea, I realize its only rumored at this point. Im just going with the old saying ¨where there´s smoke there´s fire¨
I seem to remember though when Tmo released the Nexus S it was available with in a week or so. I may be totally off on that though.

I am tempted to look at the Nexus if the battery life is better than the EVO's. I like the size of it too. I have a feeling the EVO 3D is gonna be even worse on battery than the first EVO is.Treo 650> Moto Q> Moto Q9c> BB Storm> HTC Touch Pro> iPhone 3G> Palm Pre> iPhone 3GS> Droid> Incredible> EVO 4G

I myself have an Evo right now and I love it, but honestly I am selling it as soon as this Nexus S 4G for Sprint comes out. Why? one word; UPDATES! The Nexus will get the latest updates from Google and not have to wit for Sprint or HTC to update their phones because htis is Googles baby. Even with the Evo 3D coming out with 2.3, once 2.4, 2.5 etc comes out expect the Nexus to be the FIRST to receive it and about 4-6 months later maybe the others.

Got a NS and the Misses has an evo.
Both are incredible phones but the battery life on the evo is what turned me away. Also, the pure google experience is amazing. That's not to say HTC sense on the Evo isn't good I just prefer to build my phone from the ground up.
Evo has the better camera
But NS has the better screen and battery life. Not to mention updates (though you may have to do some manually)
