    Pretty incredible. I'm looking forward to the 11th. Really looks like a great device.

    Probably a typo. That would be an almost 1 foot thick phone haha.

    As far as what he did, no idea. You could ask him here: My take on Nexus Prime dimensions: 6.4mm thick, 4.29 inch screen, same height and width as Nexus S : Android

    I wish it were a 6.4mm phone clocked at only 4.29". But I'm willing to bet this thing will be about 9.5mm and of course a 4.65" display. We shall see though.

    Yeah I'm with you. I did the calculations and if it really is 320 dpi, I'm betting on 4.6 inches (I calculated 4.59), however it should still be roughly the same size as most 4.3 inch phones, and still quite thin, probably between 8.5mm - 10mm.

    So how thin are we are talking here, just to get a perspective..? Like...iPhone thin?

    GS2 thin and if the screen size is accurate it looks like it'll be similar to the same height as well. Found this over at Reddit.

    More or less. It may not beat the GSII, but it could still be considered very thin. Also, the curved design kinda makes the device feel thinner in the hand. I compared the Nexus S to the Galaxy S a while back, and the NS actually felt thinner, though it was beat by about half a millimeter.

    So, the power button is on the same side as the dock connector? Can't see that causing any problems...

    If it's true it definitely fills Samsungs awful button design quota. I still haven't gotten used to the volume and power buttons being on opposite sides of my Charge.

    I'm sure it would be okay. It may not be aesthetically pleasing and if there was a problem with it being there....well then I doubt Samsung would have put it there in the first place.

    I'm sure they know what they are doing.

    How's thin supposed to be good? Is this gonna be powered by dilitheum crystals? If it's 4G Lte ain't it going to be sucking up lots of juice. I'm not a big fan of putting a phone on a charger every few hours. I think I'd feel better if it was less 'sleek'.

    Do yu guys think this has a metal chassis because this was one of the rumors I loved and I remember one rumor say it would be 8.8mm thin. But metal chassis? 8.8mm thin?

    Look at it this way... If the rumored 2000 MaH battery isn't large enough, the slim build lends more estate too a 3500 MaH without being much larger than say the bionic :-). Or a nice super strong case... Cause looks like this thing wouldn't survive a fall..

    I did something similiar. By my measurements, it's 6.4mm thin at the thinnest point and a 5" tall phone (4.65" screen). From the lowest point the the highest I measured about 13mm though.

    If it doesn't have an SD slot then that would be a bummer....but...I don't think that will happen. I don't see them going backwards, only forwards.

    And if it doesn't have an SD card slot...maybe it will have an internal 16 or 32.
