i dont get it whats the hype with the HTC Proto. from what ive seen the specs are sub par so why all the hype if they want to compete with Samsung and the Note 2 and S3, they need to step up the games

The HTC proto is goigng to fill the gigantic price gap left between the One V and the One S. It's not a competitor for the Note 2 or the S3, but for the Galaxy S Advance or the Galaxy ACE 2 (Galaxy S2 as much).

i think perhaps the 2 phones that would get the most attention would be the Galaxy Note 2 and the Optimus G

You don't need 1080p on a screen that small. That's 468 ppi. That means you won't be able to see about 160 ppi. Anything over 300 ppi is fine, as your eye cannot detect pixels over 300 ppi. Why can't people learn this? 1080p would just waste your battery life and graphics.

And the unit for measurement of battery capacity is mAh I'm pretty sure, not MHz. Also, HTC probably isn't going to go back to removable batteries, along with Motorola and Sony. They're just going to make the batteries better instead of making them removable

I'm sure Google will host their own event for announcing the Nexus.

I expect them to be 'nexuses' not just nexus ;)

I believe the correct term is still Nexus, as it can still be considered plural if using the certain context. Or Nexi, as the plural of words that end in "us" usually end in "i" (Octopi, cacti, etc.)
