You're really pulling my strings now.

- Record, playback and stream 720p/1080p HD videos via HDMI, DLNA, WiFi Direct, etc.
- Faster file operations, including large file transfers, zipping/unzipping, navigation of large databases
- Better decoding of high-profile codecs such as raw MKV, FLAC, etc. files
- Ability to work on a more desktop-like environment with appropriate setups (i.e. WebTop application on the Atrix, Bionic, Photon)
- Better rendering of content-heavy websites, including those with full Flash content and embedded plugins
- Added functionality of USB hosting, faster FTP access, WiFi hotspot, etc.
- Better management of Office documents i.e. PowerPoint presentations, PDF files

I want a sandy bridge phone.

on a serious note, the new phones "N-Prime and G-Note" are going to have 32nm CPUs, right? or are they still 45nm?
Shhh!

An SB phone won't be so far-fetched. Intel has partnered with Google to optimize Android for x86 processors, so we may expect Intel-powered phones and tablets sometime soon starting next year.

Actually you do. To get minimum 60FPS at max res with AA/AF, you DO need SLI/CF. What you DON'T need is 3-way SLI GTX 580's for say Starcraft 2 on Ultra at 1080p.

I understand very well the meaning of overkill, but a good game on full settings is a pleasure to behold and a genuine form of entertainment.

On the other hand, buying a $600 phone to play Angry Birds and browse this site is stupid when you can get the same terrible experience on a phone that's half the price.

This point of diminishing returns is a pretty simple concept to grasp...but it's something that ppl who will buy the Nexus Prime can't quite grasp, or they are just living in denial.

My point is this: spend your money on things that matter, and spend it wisely. If you believe that you need all this power to do the mundane things that a smartphone does, then you are blind.

PS. The point of diminishing returns on a gaming desktop is around the 6970/GTX 580 CF/SLI level. Past that, you're either running multiple monitors with all the details turned up, or you're a snob.
I take it you own a crap phone?

You won't know... until you know.

Yep.

At this point in time, our phones and tablets have now extended beyond just content consumption, for now these devices are now capable of content manipulation and creation. Gone are the days of our phones merely playing mp3's and surfing websites; now, we are able to record and edit HD video, create full Office documents, draw digital art and so much more - all in the palm of our hands. There's no use denying that smartphones are now becoming mobie computers, and will continue to close the gap in the foreseeable future.

Not to kill your buzz, but who the hell composes office documents or creates digital art on a smartphone? There's a rather broad line between mobile entertainment and true productivity; smart phones have a long way to go. I use a lot of statistical analysis software packages and subsequently many excel spreadsheets and can say whole-heartedly that I would never, ever want to use a 4" touchscreen to manage the UI, even if the programs were fully functional. Owning a tablet, I can say it is pretty much just a cellphone with a bigger screen. At this point, I think the hardware has outrun the software in terms of productivity capabilities as well as the usefulness of so called "productivity" apps. Smart phones and tablets are still media devices with a very limited productivity extension. It will require a rather large paradigm shift for smartphones and media tablets to move close to being a PC/entertainment platform/raw creative input device. Windows 8 anyone (not getting my hopes up)?

btw, sent this from an HP Touchpad


...and yes, I realllllllllyyyyyyyyy want this phone.

Will Verizon be getting a non-neutered version of this in the future or is the Nexus Prime as good as it's going to get for this line on Verizon?
