Samsung Galaxy Nexus coming soon - could this be the phone of 2011?

    Details of the super curvy Samsung Nexus Prime are slowly being unveiled ahead of its launch next Tuesday, October 11th and I reckon it's worth a thread of its own because this could turn out to be a killer phone.



    Here's a particularly wild guess:

    I got excited about this....


    .... until i heard about the curve.

    Isn't that just going to make it take up more space in a pocket etc.

    Oh and cause cases etc. to be expensive?

    On a plus point if you place it face down on a surface less glass is going to contact so less chance of scratches n all that.

    But if I step on it or something, something is more likely to give than with a flat phone.

    Curved phones are nicer to talk into (assuming you've got them the right way around!).

    I still can't believe they've actually called something Ice Cream Sandwich. Everybody took the piss out of Ubuntu for calling their updates Nerdy Nautilus, Aggravating Aardvark and so on. This is now acceptable behaviour? I am mad face.

    I don't think most people give a shit about the name of the operating system, even when it's as rubbish as Ice Cream Sandwich. Or Snow Leopard.

    "Oh hai forums, my phone has a thing wrong with it."
    "Are you running Ice Cream Sandwich?"

    Probably more memorable than most tech names, tbf.

    Surely a curved screen is inherently weaker than a flat screen? And more prone to damage via being sat on / pressed flat etc...

    Well it'll be less likely to break if it's in your back pocket and you sit on it, but more likely to break if you decide to stomp on it.

    I've never got why they do that. Is it about trying to be *cute*?

    arghh, was considering the above instead of a 4/4s, but it's curved = easy to snap :mad:

    I'd wait until the thing is actually unveiled before making your mind up.

    It's pretty common to have internal codenames for stuff. Granted, it's far less common to tell your end users what they are.

    I seem to remember a previous project in a company I worked at many years ago called "UnFuck"...

    That's exactly the point, internal stupid names are fine but using it for marketing is bloody odd. Especially as the names are more than a little shite!

    It better have an SD card slot this time, can't believe that was omitted from the Nexus S. Saying that, still quite happy with my Nexus One, does everything I need it too, and even better with Cyanogen Mod on it.

    For a sec I thought cybershot meant one of these ^^^ when saying "it better have an SD card slot this time" :D

    actually why not? It would be pretty cool...

    I had one! It had WAP! I remember trying to get the latest news about 9/11 on it from Yahoo.

    It was a pretty good phone too. I found mine in a pub with no SIM card. No one claimed it, so it became mine.

    I would have preferred to have found it with a large packet of the finest cocaine known to man, but sadly it was not to be.
