I really want the dual A15 as well, but the quad A9 will still blow everything else out now out of the water. I have a feeling it all comes down to marketing. Seriously.

To the average consumer (ie, not us on this board but to whom 99% of cell phones are sold to) 'quad' > 'dual' and that's as far as the argument goes.

I like the unlocked gsm galaxy nexus for a few reasons. For one, because its gsm and unlocked, its not going to drop in value nearly as fast as cdma phons do. If by next spring something killer is out, I won't be on contract and should be able to sell it for a decent return and pick up something new. Plus I'll be first in line using jellybean in the mean time keeping things interesting.

I also have some travel potential (overseas) so I won't have to worry about it with an unlocked phone I can just pick up a sim when I land.

Unless the leaks about the galaxy s3 are all dead wrong, 2012 is going to be the year of incremental improvements as opposed to the doubling of nearly every spec from 2010 to 2011. I was originally holding out for the s3, but so far I'm pretty 'meh' on those specs and would take the aosp expirence and ability to let carriers compete for my dollars.
