FINALLY.  A phone with a Kevlar battery cover.  It's about time.

Funny, I just saw this on infoweek:

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.
