    "1-megapixel front-facing camera"

    WTF? is that correct? I don't think the Nexus 4G will have a 1-megapixel front-facing camera...... if it does, i will laugh my pants off and then buy it xD.

    You do know megapixel amount does not translate to overall quality, right? Although I do agree, 2 megapixel or more seems more sensical for such a phone, even if they do go with the reportedly 1 megapixel front-facing camera, other more contributing factors such as the actual lens, zoom, (or even a new technology?) etc. could make up for the extra resolution a higher megapixel camera would provide.
  4. Megapixels is not the same as quality. 1 Mpx will be able to do more or less 1280x720. A front facing camera is supposed to be used for videochat, do you really want to stream more than that?

    Also, I'd rather have a good quality image than a lot of pixels. That's what a Megapixel is, the number of pixels in can put into an image. Unless you plan to hang your photographs in a wall, even for landscapes, anything upwards from 3.2 Mpx is just marketing fluff (and 99% of the people will be satisfied with 1280x720, as long as it has quality).

    Someone should really put an end to this "More Mpx -> more quality" crap, it gets on my nerves.

    "Nvidia Kal-El processor", i'm sold, lol ;)
    but then i read
    "there won't be physical Android menu buttons"
    this kinda puts me off, still sounds impressive, will Samsung again be the manufacturer?
  6. "Google's Nexus One, manufactured by HTC"
    WTF? it was made by Samsung...

    Uh, no, the Nexus One was manufactured by HTC. I believe you're confusing the Nexus One, with the Nexus S 4G...

    The Google Nexus 4G will feature a next-generation dual-core 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz CPU: either an Nvidia Kal-El processor, an OMAP 4460, or an ultra low-power 28nm Krait-based Snapdragon.

    Wow way to contradict yourself. Next gen dual core followed by saying kal-el which is a quad core.
