Galaxy Nexus looks like it's gonna rock-Has almost everything you'd want

Has pretty much everything I'd need, and I'm loving the 4.7" screen... a couple things some may miss might be the Predictive Text entry, an FM radio, and a Memory Card Slot, but I think I'll be able to get over it if this baby operates as smooth as I'm hoping on Androids 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Agreed. This thing is a beast.

I, too, was initially turned off by the lack of an SD card slot on the original Nexus 4G, but with so many ways to store things online, it's kind of a trivial gripe at this point.

Google Music cloud storage means never needing to carry music...
So what would you need more than 16 gigs of onboard space for?

I probably won't buy this phone but not because of the 16gb because I have an SGS2. But, 16gb would be enough for me. I don't have the worlds collection of blue ray images stored on my phones, I can move pictures and vids on and off the phone as I need them. I happen to think this is a great phone. Sure an SD would have been nice, but probably wouldn't have bothered getting one. I do understand peoples needs are different. But I have enough HD space on my computer at home to archive stuff I would need.

I am going to have a agree with some of the above statements, no SD card is this phones greatest downfall. Although, I would still love to see how Ice Cream Sandwich is actually going to preform and can't wait to see some of the new phones that will come out with this OS. 16GB, isn't bad, but it could be better. I have a large music and Video library that I have loaded on my phone and currently am using a 32GB.

You folks are failing to realize that the stats indicate that a 32GB version is AVAILABLE. If you need more space, buy the 32GB. Rolling Eyes

One U.S. reviewer recommended this UK store to buy, incl the 32GB ver. Looks like about $672.00 plus shipping.

Again people are not realizing that with even Edge Network coverage, you can stream your music via Google music pretty quickly. Obviously you want a 3G or even a 4G for higher quality streaming, but you do not need to store you music locally AT ALL. When it comes to videos, again, Dropbox is free and you do not need to store them locally AT ALL except when you are ready to watch them. You could potentially, and without to much trouble, run an android phone with 100 gigs of music and videos using only 100 megs OR LESS, and most of that would be your local pictures, which technically you could also store in the on one of the million picture cloud storage sites.

And guess what? There is a benefit here also. You will NEVER run out of room fo...

Who needs an FM radio when we have the TuneIn Radio app, it has tons, and tons of radio stations from all across the globe, including local.

True, but sometimes at the gym, I'll wanna do my much overdue cardio & wanna use my headphones & tune into a game, or some other show that Gold's is broadcasting inside the gym & ONLY an FM radio will do... but yes, it's a small price to pay to have one of the coolest friggin' phone to date... no FM radio on the Galaxy Nexus is not gonna keep my hangin' on to my FM radio'd laggin' average camera'd Droid X (which I actually like in spite of itself) - lol. Release this puppy already. Been hearing that it may be released on the 15th... but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

Really? Tell me, what's the name of the phone that has 1080p and a 2.0GHz quad-core processor with Android 5.0?

Far as megapixels go. They mean $hit. The Motorola Bionic has an 8 megapixel camera and the iPhone 4 has a 5 megapixel. You tell me which phone takes better pictures. Rolling Eyes
