Wouldnt be the first Nexus with a curved screen, the Galaxy Nexus had one, the slight curve was actually nice to hold in the hand, but i wouldnt like anything as extreme like in the render.

I don't get the point of having a curve phone at all. I mean whats the advantage? A flat phone has a perfect view, fits in the pocket well. Where as for curved phone, its like going back to old CRT days (with televisions having curved screen), it will feel weird to carry phone on pocket.
Just my view though.

My opinion of curved phones changed drastically since I held the LG Flex. It would also be great for people who think 5 inches is to cumbersome. Really it did not feel like I was holding a 6 inch phone. I really do want one but the fact that it's shipping with 4.2 says I better not lol

Maybe planned obsolescence.

I also appreciate that the person posted photos. The concept is still horrendously idiotic if you ask me. No need to get in a wad, my friend!
