Google Google is taking a new stab at selling devices directly: the Galaxy Nexus is now available in the Google Play devices section. That is, if you happen to live in the appropriate country - I can't see the page (as usual), so for all I know, they're selling fake Rolex watches in there.

I think people need checkbox features to psychologically justify money spent on new gadget. They may not understand what it means but it gets them warm and fuzzy feeling that the upgrade is real. Of course there are countless reasons to upgrade but they are too subtle and complex to be enclosed in one word monicker. That's exactly the same as in camera megapixel race. Producers pitch the sensor resolution in new gen cameras. They are indeed better but the real advancements come from optics and software while trying best not to screw up with even tinier photocells. Megapixel is just a rating system agreed between consumers and marketers.
