"Largest in class display"? 4.3"? What class are they talking about? and "Googles latest ICS OS"... Have they heard about Jellybean?

+1 to the ICS comment, really poor that any handsets are released already behind.

Send private message many phones available in the NZ market have Jellybean natively installed so to say latest is correct for the NZ market. As for the 4.3 screen size I think when they say largest in class they're talking mid range phones. I don't see a lot of phones that have screens this large at that price point.
