    Anyone who is familiar with @black_man_x will know he's pretty good when it comes to knowledge of upcoming products from his time with VZW and now Google. Well today he tweeted that everone who is interested in one of his famous poems should follow @tfleming223 for details on the Prime. I have been following BMX for almost a year now and I can't think of a single time one of his poems have been wrong. So when he talks it's in your best interest to listen up.
    RT THIS... NEW PANDA POEM #NEXUS #PRIME #RLS DATE @tfleming223 follow or miss out.. being late aint cool..
    ..again follow @tfleming223

    THE POEM
    While things that go bump in the night, surely give you a fright, Its all in good fun as I share treats and panda fun.
    So Instead of filling your belly with candies, jellies and other hollows eve fare, Perhaps your palate will cast a ballot,
    for an ice cream sandwich instead.

    With an internal date now set and LTE a sure bet
    Those that get Tim Cooks new pet will be filled with green eyed regret.

    But wait you cry for what date can you buy?
    This the panda did shall share...
    Fore on the date Bruce Waynes true father did die; you shall in fact be able to buy in stores of red and black.

    But those who pay other masters dont fret, over exclusive deals and bets
    For in many other favors (flavors?) you will get your treat
    be they GSM or wimax radios inside, the nexus brand will ride world wide
    the exciting, and mind blowing conclusion to come....later...

    But as he lays in the corner with a Beer and a ***** the Panda said with a sigh...
    Be it a Droid or Nexus branded new toy, with dual cores hd screens, fancy new widgets and more....
    The one with the keyboard is what I enjoy

    WHAT WE CAN GATHER AT THE MOMENT
    -ICS announcement near Halloween
    -LTE equipped
    -Released on NOV. 3! (VZW) (day Batmans creator died)
    -Released on most, if not all, carriers

    My vote (pun intended) is an election day release. November 8th.

    EXACTLY my thought! A Halloween announcement of ICS, followed by a device release around election day. Now, I hope tomorrow's tweets confirm some stock ICS...

    Not always. And the Prime isn't exactly going to be a regular Verizon phone.

    I'd say it will be either announced or released on election week. Not necessarily just Tuesday the 8th. That would be my best guess. :-)

    I don't think the point trying yo be made was a release that day, but within that week or anywhere around there. Basically early November seems a go.

    Sorry, just posted this in another thread, but here is the next piece of the poem...

    "With an internal date now set and LTE a sure bet"
    "Those that get Tim Cook’s new pet will be filled with green eyed regret."

    This is bmx's best poem yet, and we haven't even read the entire thing yet.

    Sounds like Google has the phone prepared and ready for launch if they have a set date. Also, to hear it has LTE this late in, defiantly means it's going to stay.

    The latest news is a bit confusing - P3Droid is saying it's not coming to Verizon, and then Panda confirms it will have LTE. Could that be just for AT&T? I'm not sure how many carriers worldwide have LTE and who carries the Nexus, etc.

    i believe p3droid said they would get a prime but it wouldn't be vanilla android (call it droid prime instead of nexus prime). and i'm sure it will be LTE equipped because a lot of carriers are moving towards it.

    Now he is saying he will hint at the actual release date as soon as droid life and android central follow him, lol.
    The next three lines are key...the riddle for release date are in them...but I won't share until @droid_life and/or @androidcentral follow!

    Yeah fair enough about LTE, but P3Droid was one of the ones (along with BMX as well) that discredited the original claims by BGR that a Droid Prime was being made. It seems like he came into some new info a day or two ago that now has him believing the phone is not coming to Verizon. He didn't, however, clarify if he meant the Nexus in any form/fashion (DROID version included), or just that it wouldn't be a true Nexus.

    from p3droid in order

    If what im hearing is true then I may cross the nexus prime off my christmas list.

    @verizonwireless you don't know what is best foe me can't you give me just one device, just one device that is all mine.

    The allure of the prime for me was a phone with a pure stock experience if that is not the case im not as excited. Its just another monster phone.

    Im pouring out this drink for the vzw nexus prime rip.
    I took that to mean that they are getting it, just not stock, likely touch wiz. Or maybe a G2X type situation at best, Stock but still have carrier bloat.

    Not to rain on the parade, but tfleming223 hasn't really told us anything. The phone is being released around Halloween and has LTE? This isn't even news.

    I think his tweets are referring to ICS. He says his next lines would make the date i the actual phone clear.

    Also, yes we've heard most of this already before. This is merely just a confirmation from someone 'in the loop'
