I was looking forward to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, however, with the 
absence of a micro-sdhc card slot, I'm a little bummed. I have music 
and movies that I carry with me, and while the music locker is cool, 
there isn't anything for movies. For the photographer, it only has a 
5MP rear camera. And 4.65" might be a little large. 

My next choice is the Droid RAZR. It looks like a solid piece of 
hardware. 8MP camera rear-camera, micro-sdhc card slot, very thin. It 
too, will have Ice Cream Sandwich (Android OS 4.0) in early 2012. But, 
it has a locked boot-loader. Perhaps this will change once Google 
completes it's acquisition of Motorola Mobility. 

All About Android is a good program. Highly recommended.

It is 18months old now though, which is ancient in phone technology. I am keeping my eye out for what will be available come June when I can upgrade.
