I don't actually mind Samsung making the next Nexus phone considering HTC has been failing so much lately. They need to start making phones like the Desire and Nexus One. I really loved the styling.
Note: Reading around the thread I notice alot of people complaining about "low hardware specs". There is reasoning behind that. Google seeks to create a "reference" device with the Nexus line-up. This basically means that its the bottom line or standard for that year/OS version. It says to OEM's that "if you go below this line, YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG". It's also a developer reference, meaning: This is (most likely) what phones will look like for the rest of the year. (HW/OS). Don't expect the next Nexus to have flagship specs and don't complain about the Galaxy Nexus, the OMAP 4460 is currently only in the Nexus and was barely released in Q4 '11.
