Google Nexus 3: What You Need To Know

Well Google plans to release the Google Nexus 3 with features such as 4G for our fellow Americans, a dual-core 1.2GHz, maybe even 1.5GHz, processor; could be OMAP 4460 or the famous Qualcomm Snapdragon.
The display, which is reported to be MASSIVE, will be 720p HD and will have to ability to shoot 1080p HD. Now we're not sure as yet whether it will be Super AMOLED Plus like the Samsung Galaxy S II but if it wants to maintain or raise standards then AMOLED Plus looks like the way forward. There will also be 1GB RAM, which sounds exciting.
One downside will be that it will sport a 5MP camera; now even though this is yet to be 100% confirmed, it appears the 5MP is becoming out-dated. But we'll see...Google might change their mind...who knows?
Another aspect which some may appreciate and some may be disappointed about is that the buttons will disappear, as in the phone will be button-free (except volume... etc.) but along to bottom, no button, purely software based.
Now here is the main, exciting part: Android 4.0 - Ice Cream Sandwich. Now, many of you may have seen Google's IO event (Google IO Event - Video) on the release of the firmware but here is a recap of what to expect:
- It will run as a standard platform across all smartphones and tablets
- Holographic User Interface
- Improved Multi-tasking and App Switching
- More Advanced Applications
- Resizing Widgets to Suit You
- Face Recognition & Virtual Camera
- Much more to be announced and confirmed...
The device is said to hopefully be released in November or maybe even a bit later during Christmas time.
Tell us what you think? Is it something you would buy?
