What can I say, if google decides to sell again directly through their own webstore, I think they will see much better results this time around as well as see a growing foundation of loyal Nexus followers. Theres no question the Nexus One is a good phone. But integral to its value, at least to me, was the ability to buy it factory unlocked at a good price (compare with new iphones sold unlocked for up to $1000!!!). Also the slow progress of the Nexus Ones sales can just as easily be attributed to the lack of advertisement behind it. I really dont see the difficulty. Sell the Nexus 2 at a lower price point through phone companies with their contract, and sell it for $500-600+ directly from Google for those that prefer that. Both will draw in their respective customers. As far as specs I would like to see, I could happily use a 4.3 screen (although I dont think this will be done at all). But a 4" one will also be cool (more likely). Retina display would be awesome, but even still the amoled is fine by me. I expect a front facing camera is in order as well as the ability to shoot HD footage. HDMI out - very cool. And of course a better trackball replacement. Oh and better speakers, or at least ones that are facing forward or evenly located on the sides. I wouldnt mind seeing HTC go for a second round. I havent personally had any notable issues with the build quality on the N1. Also, worst case scenario (i.e no untampered Google OS) I would probably prefer Sense UI over another option. If I remember correctly Sense UI introduced expose for the homescreens. If they have this kind of vision, they may have some other useful tricks up their sleeve.
