Favorite things from the Google | Samsung event today (New Nexus Phone & Android 4.0)

GOOGLE’S NEW FLAGSHIP PHONE
1.  galaxy nexus phone coming to verizon!!!

-4.65″ 1280×720 screen (sounds huge, but supposedly has a tiny bezel so “the phone won’t feel any bigger in your hand”
-1.2ghz dual core processor (aka “super fast”)
-the back has a soft grip textured surface
-NFC
-camera (zero shutter lag, face detection, panorama mode, 1080p video, time lapse)
-removable battery
*cons:  no microSD card slot, no dedicated camera button, 5megapixel camera instead of 8 – not sure if the # megapixels matters though.

OPERATING SYSTEM – ANDROID 4.0 (ICE CREAM SANDWICH)

2.  screen capture (just hit power + volume)
3.  new camera app
4.  new gallery (editing tools like filters, red eye removal, etc)
