It doesn't have the 5.3-inch screen of the recently released Galaxy Note, but the Nexus is no lightweight either, boasting a 4.6-inch high-definition screen and 1.2GHz dual core processor. The real attraction, though, is the fact that the Nexus will be the first smartphone to show off the new Android 4.0 software - also known as Ice Cream Sandwich - and will include advanced new features such as face-recognition to unlock the phone.

Price: TBC - but probably around £500 Sim-free
ETA: 17/11

Dave Murphy..... read the article before commenting, 2 of the 3 Nokia phones in this article are windows phones, whilst one is the last of the Nokia Symbian phones. Brain into gear before fingers go walking on the keyboard please !

I admit that I love my gadgets and my phone being one of them but I do think some of these phones are well over priced and you have no sooner bought the latest phone and it's out of date within a year, those who say a phone is for making calls and nothing else are the same people who have no idea about technology and just don't know how useful todays phones are other than making calls but it's each to there own I guess.

If someone could teach me how these gadgets work I might just buy one - but until such times that those who sell them are also  willing to spend enough time to teach an 'old' girl how to use them, I wouldn't buy one.

The RIM looks pretty awesome & is the only one of the bunch with a physical QWERTY keyboard,...i like!Smile

Why is it the US get all the decent QWERTY moby's,like the Samsung Captivate Glide & Motorola Droid 4?Isn't there a market for smartphones with a physical keyboard here?

well lets hope HTC don't miss this chance, by equipping it with more than the usual 500 meg internal memory. as they did with the wildfire, that clogs every time you update the apps on the phone. power is one thing capability is another .

please learn to spell before you post a script, although I do agree I wish people would look where they are going instead of staring at their phones!

Can you see the screen on a sunny day?  What good is a phone when you struggle to read the screen in bright daylight - hope these new smartphones do the job...............probably wishful thinking like every other phone on the market!!

What happened to Microsoft and Nokia teaming up to make a phone because they can't compete with Androids and iPhones? Here Nokia are getting ready to release three more fails.
