Google Nexus 3 to remove all physical buttons? TechHog has posted what they claim to be the upcoming Google Nexus 3 flagship Android device, one that will run on Android's "Ice Cream Sandwich" platform.
ICS will be the first Android version to mix 3.1 Honeycomb (optimized for tablets) and the Android 2.x series built for smartphones.

In the leaked photo, the alleged HTC-built Nexus 3 will remove all physical buttons, the signature home/back/menu keys.

Additionally, the site also says that the company is working on both HSPA+ and CDMA versions, one for AT&T and one for Sprint.

While many will decry that the photo is faked, the editor of the original piece says the photo is edited, but only to remove items that would otherwise lead a trail back to the Google employee source.
