in my opinion webOS is prettiest, but Android is second best... way better than Blackberry and iOS

Nice, looking forward to see how the Nexus 10 turns out. Regarding the horizontal and vertical movement for panoramic photos, my S III has that already as default when switching to panoramic mode. Still excited to see what 4.2 brings.

I really hope that storage thing isn't true, I love the phone but only 16 GB of storage is a deal breaker for me I'm already using 20 GB of storage and thats not including my music.

Personally I need more storage.

There could be an expandable storage option on it. I think by next year we will see phones come standard with 32GB worth of data with an expandable storage option on most of them.

if storage is so important to you then get a phone with microSD slot, like Samsung Galaxy S3

Why did you choose the Galaxy S3 as an example of all phones

"The playground is open" Was already used in advertisements of the Nexus 7 (At least 2). Nothing new on that...

I hope that Google really change the Nexus program and make it more open, with more than one device launched per year. But I think that it's not so easy...

They will have to manage an increasing number of devices that should be updated with each new version of Android. For each new Nexus, they will have to allocate resources. And, technically, they will take a responsability that shouldn't be theirs (After all, it is someone else's hardware!).

Maybe, if the manufacturers really get in this Nexus fever, they can make one agreement, and pay for the google's software maintenance (Since they will have zero concerns and costs, in the software development).

also if you think about subjetively theree seems to be a Nexus Mesage on that invitation, "the playgrouf is oppen" could mean a overhauled nexus program and more than One Nexus Device. But hey look at this

-LG Nexus 4
-Asus Nexus 7
-Samsing Nexus 10
-Motorola
-HTC

only two big guys are missing so far to there to be 5 Nexus

You could also look into the four towers that are on the invite representing 4 Nexus devices too.

Sony Nexus was a fake.

Or the four blue towers on the left + the 2 red bridge structures on the right = 4.2

Motorola might not get in on the Nexus program this year, but they are pointing towards next year for the Google influence on Motorola to be apparent in the device lineup.

100GB free from Google, thats y the new nexus doesn't have that much memory. 8-16 is not for a game players like me. just one game from EA takes like 1.3GB .

What good does 100gb in the cloud do when the carriers are limiting our data? You can't stream with the new tiered our shared plans, unless you want to pay double or more.
