    Disappointed that they didn't show off the Nexus 8... a real shame. The Nexus 10 is really showing its age and needs a replacement. I wonder if there is a Nexus 8 in the #cardboard.

    And no 64-bit either, not before next year. Apple is releasing 2-nd generation 64-bit mobile platform in two month, Google fails to launch its first one. Lame.

    Why? The day a phone will need to be more powerful than a 32bit computer it will cease to be a phone imho. It is beyond silly to me as the biggest advantage is removing the 4gb cap and over 99% of users will never need that.

    That day has passed, my friend. 64-bit is here already, and it is not just about memory capacity, but also memory access speed and future-proof. World paces beyond immediate needs ;)

    I forgot that in two years snapchat will require 8gb of highspeed ram. Instead of looking years down the road they should target needs for today such as battery life.
