Yesterday, Samsung released a cryptic video teasing next week's Android Unpacked event. The end of the video shows a suuuper curved phone with the tagline, "Something BIG is coming." Hello Nexus Prime?

We've been expecting the Nexus Prime, the next great Android phone that'll introduce Ice Cream Sandwich with it, for quite a while now and there's really no better time to introduce it than right now (as Apple just showed its cards). The phone in Samsung's teaser video looks deliciously thin and curvy, let's hope it's as good as we want it to be.

Cute teaser video. [CNET]

Seriously though, the curve seems kind of goofy. Unless it fits sideways in my pocket (not likely) it'll awkwardly bulge out more than the thinness makes up for. And even at this extreme angle it doesn't seem to offer enough ergonomics to make it better to hold up to your face. Last I checked mobile phones didn't suffer much from the microphone being a tiny bit further away from your mouth.

This is just seems like a gimmick feature to make it stand out, but does nothing functionally.
