I'm excited for these phones but I can't for the life of me figure out why they went with capacitive buttons instead of on-screen... 48 hr battery life, though...
This is one nice-looking piece of hardware... Plus the fact that it dual-boots Android is definitely a plus, considering apps will most likely be scarce at first. I'll be curious to see whether developers will port their apps over from Android or iOS.
I need a Nexus 7 because my first gen Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will never be updated again most likely... Good luck everyone!
These leaks are getting more and more interesting. I love the idea of always-on voice recognition the screen blinking notifications instead of a notification light but not at the expense of battery life. Here's hoping it comes with a monster "MAXX"-style battery.
Thanks for the heads up! I loved my Droid X back in the day. Here's hoping they really live up to the hype. I'd love to design my own phone to fit my life.

Also, I'm really excited for the watch and the game console!
I think a Google TV box would be really great if they make it compatible with tablet apps instead of having separate "TV apps." They could have some sort of touchpad remote or kinect-like gesture and voice controls to navigate.
Good luck everyone! Hope I win!
I'm not entirely sure that's true considering the Google Edition One and S4 that just came out. Those arguably are overshadowing the Nexus line. Either way, though. I'm excited to see what's coming!

I think it's a combination of things. First, as mentioned above, price is definitely a factor. Second, availability is a problem since it's only GSM phones. Third, even though I hate the look of Sense and Touchwiz, they add features users like. This is especially true given things such as HTC One's Ultapixel enhancements and features like the Zoes.
However, The white S4 looks so good in vanilla...
This is great! Hope it comes in that red version we keep seeing.

I Getz what you did there.
I feel your pain! I'm locked in for at least another year unfortunately... If only Verizon would carry "Google Edition" phones.
I don't think the update's been released yet. A couple other blogs that reported on the update said it'll be rolling out "in the next few weeks."
I'm excited for this update. I've been using the smart labels for a while through Gmail labs but the visual refresh will make it even easier to use!
You're able to use a tablet hybrid experience so you get more screen real estate because the area at the bottom of the screen where the home/back/multitask buttons is smaller. Plus, you can choose whether you want the tablet version of an app or a phone version. It's just more customizable in those regards.

I think the biggest drawbacks I see with Hangouts thus far is that a) I can't tell who's available on hangouts; b) Even though it has my "most contacted" list, it's not the same as the "Approved" list of friends I have on G-Chat; c) It still doesn't integrate all of the google chat services and I miss being able to call from Google Talk/Voice in one place; d) there's still a Google Messenger App with the Google+ app.
I do have confidence that it most of these issues will be worked out and fixed soon or at least by the end of the year.
Hopefully there'll be more space available than on the Touchwiz edition of the S4 since there isn't as much bloat.
I think the only people who don't think a GE HTC One is a good idea are HTC executives. I guess they're really set on everyone having blinkfeed and Zoes.
I felt that way after I was an early adopter of the original Galaxy Tab 10.1 and then they stopped updating it after the first ICS update. It should at least have been updated to 4.1.2. However, I love my Galaxy Nexus and I have friends and family with other Galaxy S phones and they haven't had those issues. My girlfriend's GS2 got updated to Jelly Bean recently, which is surprising but awesome.
These are a lot of fun. SO MANY PONIES. Hope Google releases more and makes some of them available on mobile.
