Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE?

Another one of my criteria has apparently been met by the Nexus - native car and desk docks, especially car.

 

Genuine Samsung Accessories

 

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Vehicle Mount - Samsung ECS-K1F8BEG

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Multimedia Dock - Samsung EDD-H1F8BEG

 

I'm getting a warm and fuzzy feeling, even if I have to import

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE?

Thanks jckelly, that's super news.

 

I've never had an actual made-for-your-phone vehicle mount before. Then my wife got one for her Motorola Atrix, and I'm SOLD.

 

I wonder if Google will do a similar thing for ICS/Nexus as Motorola did for the Atrix, that being a special "Vehicle Mount Mode" which gives you big buttons for things you need while driving. (maps, navigation, music, etc.)  Has anyone heard anything?

Absolutely, already had all that with my Nexus One... it's built into the OS provided the phone has a way to detect that it's in a dock -- and the Nexus does.  Motorola didn't do that, Google did.

Oh, great news - I didn't realize that it was an Android feature.

This image here makes the Nexus screen look quite small. Anyone know anything about that? The S2 LTE looks enormous next to it. I am personally going for the biggest screen.

One more thing... even without a dock, you can still select "Car Home" and get the larger buttons that you're describing

Phew! I'm teetering between SGS2 LTE and Nexus. Most likely Nexus, although I want a new Android now!~

Re: Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE?

I'd love to believe that but it's a 3rd party site, They're just placing a date which will infuse people to purchase them early considering that Samsung has stated mid-november. I really can't see Rogers getting this anytime soon but if your not willing to wait, I guess you can get it unlocked and paid outright.
