    Most interesting is this:

    This is a bigger advantage then I think people realize. Being able to buy without being linked t a contract or a particular carrier is a HUGE advantage I can't think of another phone sharing. If Google's goal is to quickly up their application base, I also have to acknowledge their open-platform method could make the Nexus/Android development a rapid fire world.

    Not in america really, where the only provider most people would want (Verizon) is on a completely incompatible cellular network. And from early accounts the T-Mobile version the googlers got won't work with AT&T 3G, just crappy edge. I want the Nexus/Android to succeed just to push Apple, but so far this phone seems no better than the droid + a better processor to me.

    Ad supported? Something we haven't heard of yet? Google needs to pull out a BIG surprise for this to not be a major ho hum revelation since all the other major points ahve leaked.

    Where's the beef?

    I sat through that entire debacle of a press conference and all I can say is this:

    "Anyone who pays for this mess gets what they deserve".
