I'm upgrading my Galaxy Nexus (using my 10 year old daughter's line which is out of contract so I don't lose my unlimited data - she will retain her "dumb" flip-phone) so it should be a very nice improvement! My GNex (rooted and running the CM nightlies) rolls down to my wife (who currently has my old HTC Thunderbolt - also rooted).
I would have preferred to grow up to a 64GB S4, but a sideways upgrade from the GNex should be nice, if only for the many improvements in speed, connectivity & battery life that have come about since then.
The plan is to get it updated with the latest FW, then root it to get rid of the bloatware. I may eventually get CM loaded onto it, but only if they have seen to include APIs that take advantage of the new features (S-apps, motion control, eye-tracking pause, etc.).
Picked up my case/holster & Zagg screen protector yesterday, and have a class 10 64GB card waiting to be picked up. The only remaining item on my list is a spare battery & battery charger (for extended excursions), but these are secondary until I discern battery life, which I understand should be an improvement over my GNex.
Sorry about rambling on - Always excited to get a shiny new toy! Expecting delivery Wed-Thur this week. Can't freak'n wait!
