    Any idea what those three little dots were officially? I don't think I missed that. Assumed it was inductive magnetic charging like macbook
    for a dock. I never saw an actual charging port though so i wonder if those actually charge.
    Yeah, the little dots on the side are for docking and charging. The Nexus one had them and, it's pretty awesome IMO. It's much easier to fit the phone in a desktop dock or car dock than, usb is.

    So wait, it's super AMOLED, not super AMOLED plus?
    Yup, just Super AMOLED. Which means its pentile, but due to the high pixel density it might not make much of a difference.

    I came away very impressed with the GN phone and ICS. I think that Google finally gets it. Android needs to create a strong emotional bond with people. ICS is great start in that direction, IMHO.

    The UI seems "clean" and friendly. The workflow seems simple and intuitive. The "wiz-bang" feature seems to be the ease of use, IMHO. I'm looking forward to dumping my 3GS and getting this phone.

    I wonder if email systems like Exchange or Yahoo will work similar to gmail. I hope so.

    I agree about the camera. My Iphone 4 cam is only 5 MP and, it's a lot better than the Bionic's which is 8 MP.
    i hope they're at least using the same camera as the iphone or something comparable. they can just add it to the lawsuit. >_>

    there is so much covered in these events but what i'm worried about is what's not covered because that might be a cause for concern >_<

    looks like it DOES have a removable battery but the storage is in fact internal. I didn't see a sd card slot. Which explains the 16GB and 32 GB model. fine with me.

    The sd card slot is not that big of a deal to me as it was a year ago. All my main stuff is on the cloud. Pictures could probably go to picasa.

    Their camera is still likely to be better and the GPU is far superior. So, GUI, camera, and GPU. For many folks thats a huge deal breaker and will turn them to the IP4S. I'll have to get my hands on the Nexus before I decide, I don't do a lot of gaming of my phone but I want it to play smooth when I do.

    I'm happy with what I saw. ICS looks amazing. I'm not really disappointed by the specs even though I had hoped some things would be slightly better. Honestly, given that single core phones were still being recently released and bought by lots of people, I doubt the specs on this phone will really be an issue. Early hands on report seem to be quite good. Plus I look at it like this, I will gladly take this phone now and it should keep me quite happy for a while and if something really amazing comes out next year(SG3), then I'm sure this phone will sell well and I'll purchase a new phone at retail pricing.

    Sorry meant GPU and I didn't say I wanted an Iphone I have used android since it came out on the G1 I just like the Hdmi for movies out to my TV and that is also Where the Sd card comes into play.
