Poll results: bring on the Pixel phones!

Poll results: bring on the Pixel phones!
So, Google's new vanilla Android-rigged flagships will be called Pixel, leaving the Nexus name in the past. And we are about to see them pretty soon, too — they are to be announced next Tuesday, alongside some other juicy Google-made things, for sure.

Google's flagships were always more of a concept device, geared towards the Android geek, with no heavy marketing surrounding them, and no fanfares on release. Last year, Google started slowly changing that, and made an effort to present the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P — the first-ever metal-made Nexus — in an upbeat event, which praised the phones' features. It is speculated that, this year, we will be seeing even more flashy presentations, as Google slowly tries to push its own phone as mainstream devices.

But hey, for those that have been following the past Google phone releases, it may be a bit hard to un-learn the habit of expecting something low-key. We decided to check your hype levels with a poll. It seems that there's a good amount of excitement, or at least interest, for what Google is about to unveil in a few days!

Are you excited for the Google Pixel event next week?

Oh, yeah! Bring on the Pixel phones!
I'm interested to see what Google will introduce, but not hyped
The who the what now?

Heard a rumor on slashgear 2 days ago that the back of the pixel phones will be used as touchpads (possibly for dual booting).. Don't know how true

touchpad on full touch-screen device? sounds really useless... but maybe it serve specific function (like on PSvita)

If that were true, then there are a lot of phone case manufacturers that are going to be kicking themselves right now. All of the phone cases I have seen for these devices covers the entire back except for the fingerprint scanner and camera openings.

That was what I was thinking exactly.. But then again, if you look at it from another angel, there's just has to be something interesting bout the pixels as all the rumors so far have been basically run of the mill. So if google is actually bigging up the phones and positioning them as galaxy and iphone competitors, then they just has to be something exciting that we don't know of, at least considering the price. Or don't you think so? But if I may ask, what's the function of the touchpads on the ps vista?

The touchpad on the back of the Vita was supposed to be used for extra functionality. You could control different features with it. I personally didn't care much for it. It was meh.
