    Eh? It has a no-name fortified glass screen, just not Corning Gorilla Glass... Might not be Gorilla Glass, but it ain't plastic.

    AFAIK it's "fortified glass" not plastic. There's at least one key scratch video out there as well.

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    This is now the second public announcement that EmptyN has made in a week that seriously pi$$es me off!
    That's before taking into account their cr@p customer service and useless support services coupled with my ridiculously high monthly bill :|

    Honestly, why do I do this every 24 months??

    People who moan about that should be shot Gingerbread is good and you can always get onto xda and get Gingerbread updates or ICS for that matter.
    Procrastination. I'll find a signature for this later.

    Indeed...but Moto also said that the RAZR is inline for ICS upgrade anyway. I saw on the net that it is scheduled for 2nd Q of this year. Not too much longer to wait I think. Getting mine tomorrow....woop woop!

    TBH I do know why - it's because they offer me very attractive credits on my accounts as a retention tool.
    Unfortunately if I move over to Voda, they refuse to take into account any of my 12 year history with MTN.

    I have received the ICS update for my Sony Experia Arc.

    Glad to have it, but it doesn't really change anything - no noticeable difference !

    I have to say that i love the size of my samsung galaxy note. As cool as the nexus would be, im not sure i can go back to "small" phones again...

    Been using the galaxy nexus for close to three months now and one thing is for sure...I am a nexus convert and my next phone will be a nexus.
    love the screen, love vanilla ICS and really enjoy using it, its smooth and fluid

    It's a nice phone...however:

    Nexus = R6990
    SGS2 = R5399 (CA Cell -I actually picked my GS2 up for R4899, so in my case R2k)

    R1500 (R2k) for a slightly larger screen? Thanks, but no thanks. ICS will be on the GS2 shortly, apparently.

    I just read an article about the RAZR ICS update, it looks like they didn't go to haywire with their theming...Looks good

    Also notice on the one pic where they had the Google Apps folder (pic 4) there was one icon that was removed in between the letters C and D...could this maybe be google drive app that should be comming soon if rumors are correct
