Oh my.
As I said before, the size of the phone is an issue for me. I could care less about NFC, and we know nothing about ICS. So yeah

My god

If those specs are true... well, my desire is going into early retirement. I need to get a job to pay for it though

Then at the very least wait.

And phone size? Dude I can pocket my Galaxy S II no problems, and having played with a Dell Streak months ago made me feel that 4.3 inches is actually too small for me.

Yeah, heaven forbid I find those phones big. I am tired of my Droid X (for a number of reasons, mostly the size of the thing) And yeah I am going to wait, but so far I am leaning towards an iPhone

I actually played with the Droid X and tried to pocket it on one of my tight pants. Not that cumbersome actually, hell even an NDS or PSP doesn't faze me.

And I've seen... smaller people carry around monstrous phones. Asked them if the size is an issue, and to my surprise it's not. One of my classmates has an EVO 4G with an extended battery pack (making it thick as a brick) but she doesn't mind.

That's fine. But I still prefer a smaller phone

Don't fret.

- The Nexus Prime won't have capacitative nor physical buttons, so the increased screen size will cover the same position of these buttons and thus won't require a larger form factor.

- The Prime will be a very thin device, and its curvature will help in the overall natural feel in handling it.

How will it compare to an HTC Evo 4G? Those things are too big for my hands.

Hopefully the first point is true, but the second part.. well the phone doesn't look too thin, and is somewhat bulky at the top and bottom.

Also, as long as my next phone doesn't do this to my pants:
(yes, these are mine )
