Exactly, this looks like a piece of art. This is a true mixture of art meets technology. It's a very sexy looking device. Samsung is on fire & is taking the mobile design to another level. Samsung makes great components, but are implementing those components it in avant-garde ways! Thus the Google Nexus Prime!

I hear this Google Nexus Prime will have some metal. Again I could be wrong but that is what "they" are saying!

I suspect that the upcoming D-C 1.5GHzs are going to destroy the iPhone 5.

That screen is huge! It's over a Hand (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_(unit)); more than a third of a foot! Wow.

What's next... a screen a seventh of a yard big?!

i agree.. i find 4' screen size to be apt. it fits comfortably in hand and is big enough. though SE arc and htc sensation has worked hard to increase the size of screen to 4.2' and yet keep the same size of 4' phone..sammy has kept increasing the vertical growth of phone.
but that again is a personal taste.

Agreed. I think newer HTC devices like the Sensation, EVO 3D and Vigor are the perfect size - they kept the width of a 4" screen but stretched it to full 16:9. Others prefer fatter phones like the EVO and Thunderbolt. Another matter of taste. At least we have options!

Unveiling is not the same as being available for purchase.... I hope this is available for purchase in the U.S. sooner than it took for the GSII.

rumor is VZW is getting some kind of exclusivity.. which at this point i doubt.. or at least hope not. Tmo has launched every nexus thus far so i doubt they will be left out in the cold for launch. Sprint will want it asap.. hopefully ATT has learned their lessons and sells it right away too instead of waiting till its nearly irrelevant like last time.

everyone except verizon wont be getting the pone until later.thts why verizon doesnt has an s2 device is so it can gain exclusivity for the nexus for some time

Even if it's only 3 months exclusivity, that gets them through the holiday sea$on.

It doesn't look like the hump at the top and bottom is part of the phone. Heard someone say there will be a tablet it will dock into similar to the Asus Padfone. We can only hope...

Photoshoped image shows that screen is far less curved than video suggested, because of extended glowing line that emphasized it. This is pretty good curvature, maybe more than Nexus S but not too much, just the right amount.

you don't need to wish/hope... If the rumors hold true (which they are looking quite so), it will be exclusive to verizon as the droid prime.

concidering how many iphone rumors proved to be crap, i wouldnt put too much stock in nexus rumors just to keep from getting your hopes too high, lest we end up with our own "Iphone4S" drama

would've been better if HTC manufactured it.

no, then it wouldnt have access to exynos 2nd gen chips nor super amoled HD, which are the 2 stand out features of this phone other than ICS. Noone comes close to samsung when it comes to tech advancements.
