I am definitely buying it. I guess my Blade has come to a time that will need to retire before it dies (poor key responsiveness, camera, lack of hw support in newer android versions).

Pros:
- Price
- Genuine Android (hell yeah)
- Screen resolution

Cons:
- Screen size (it would be shocking after I switch from the 3.2" Blade :) )

Is there a possibility do you think of Google bringing out a 32Gb version in the future a là nexus 7?


They didn't with the Galaxy Nexus, I doubt they will with the Nexus 4.

I think I'll hang on to my desire for a little longer and see if a 32 GB version comes out. The only other phone that tempts me at the moment is the S3 or possibly the Newman N2 which looks pretty similar in spec. I suspect that other phone prces may fall in the coming weeks.

Keeping the lg 2x for a bit.
Bound to be better deals than the device store like with the nexus 7.
Also loads of cheap great phones out soon, all with micro SD & better specs.

If what a few shops have said there might not be any better deals for it. I'm definitely giving up on the o2x, mines never been great so I can't wait to have a phone that actually works without having to find the perfect combination of ROM ril and baseband for your specific handset.

My 2X will be retired as soon as I get the nod from Google.
Just hope it's sooner rather than later.

As much as I love my Galaxy SII, currently running with CM10 rom, I really hanker after a change. CM does a great job of making the GSII a much nicer phone, but by not having the open sources it doesn't work anywhere near as well as it could. Therefore I'm pretty much decided that I need to make a move to a stock android device, where the updates are swift and plentiful.

However there are a couple of thorns in the side of my plan:
1) I understand why Nexus devices don't have SD card slots ... but really wish it could have had more than 16GB.
2) I really love the form factor of the Galaxy Note II !!!

But, as I'll be buying outright, and then selling the Galaxy S II, I think I'll end up with Nexus!

Orange regrets to inform you that their network will be going down in 1 hours time for all users apart from yourself. This is because nothing would go down on you, not even a network!

Surely the Blade has a 3.5" screen! :-)
