    Exactly my thinking. Damn it!

    EDIT: and the crappy GB rollout with Tbolt and DINC has somewhat soured me on HTC.

    simple... the vigor has a dual core 1.5ghz compared to the nexus having only 1.2ghz. also the vigor will have a 8mp camera compared to a 5mp on the nexus. not too mention htc's build quality is always superior to samsung, at least in my experience.

    If HTC is going to keep in the Android race, they need to "announce" the Vigor before the RAZR and Galaxy Nexus go on sale. Otherwise they will be losing a lot of sales.

    For me, I've got until late December until I'm eligible for an upgrade (current phone is Droid Incredible). So I've got time to watch and see how things pan out. But it sounds like at least three great phones are going to be coming to Verizon in the coming months.

    - Motorola Droid RAZR
    - Samsung Galaxy Nexus
    - HTC Vigor

    Decisions.. decisions.. :-)

    Dude, quite simply doesn't make it faster, once dual cores came out all phones are generally the same despite a .3 mghz difference. Now its all about the software baby. 4.0 ftw. And on a side note, the 8mp cam makes it faster? Lol wut 0.0

    Yea tough decisions.. went from Fascinate which was 1st smartphone; thin/light w AMOLED screen; but eternity for Froyo to arrive (Sammy/VZW to blame?); and still no GB on it over to T-BOLT. HTC brought me larger screen; LTE performance and outages :-( Sense is very nice...but random reboots and again delays w updates to GB cause me to be leary... the RAZR looks wicked nice and can only assume now that owned by google that ICS can't be far away.... corp phone is a D2G and it's gotten updates pretty frequently as of late w/ GB and GB re-release... same for my XOOM wifi - cant' wait for the ICS update to arrive :-)

    Ditto. Have an ATRIX 2 with AT&T, and I am hopeful, Motorola with Google and ATRIX 2 carries that ti omap processor. Ics on the herizon for latest Motorola handsets feels for sure.

    no the cpu will be faster and the phone will probably get more developer love. i mentioned the camera is better as well. since when do you guys come here to bash the vigor?

    it's all about choice and i love the fact we will have soo many great devices to choose from in 2012. verizon has really stepped it up here. i bet here hear confirmation on the vigor by the beginning of november with a late november or early december release. they won't pass up the holiday season.

    I think he just means that's what he feels makes the Vigor better than the Nexus in his opinion. It is true that you can't always judge things by specs alone but it does make a good starting point. Software and a few other things do go into it though. Until both devices are out and tested no one can honestly say which is faster and more than likely even when it is decided the difference may be undetectable by the human eye. I do hope that HTC does announce something soon because their lack of action and promotion for this device may cause what looks to be a really good phone a ton of sales and potential success. People have a short attention span now a days and if you expect them to wait you have to throw them a few crumbs every now and then or you lose them. Even though I am pretty sure I will get the Vigor I do plan on actually holding both the Vigor and the Nexus in my hands and putting them through their paces. But even so a little news every now and then wouldn't hurt.

    To be honest, the optimization of ICS will probably give the Nexus a slight edge over the Vigor on GB. If not, they are still going to be extremely similar, its not like were going to see a performance difference coming from a OG Droid to the Galaxy Nexus or Vigor. For just simple navigating the OS, 0.3 Ghz may not really matter.

    true but also the vigor and razr will get ice cream as well.

    Well I am still new to the smartphone market so I don't really have any brand loyalty to speak of. I do like the general look of most HTC phones though and there is no use owning a device that you can't stand to look at no matter how good the internal specs are. It's like having a Porche engine in a Yugo body. Who cares, it's still a F'n Yugo...lol. I've really gotten in to music more than ever before so the Vigor having Beats by Dre and the ability for me to swap out SD cards for music, music videos, and movies is a big plus to me. I'm hoping they do improve the battery life but I'm already pretty sure I'm going to get a spare battery anyway so unless it's WORSE than the TB batt. I don't think I'll have problems.

    Not much but here's a link to a nice looking new case for the Vigor.

    I'm waiting on the vigor too. HTC makes better quality handsets than Samsung(personal opinion). Don't get me wrong Sammy has some sweet androids but I just like the look and feel of HTC better. Also with Ice Cream Sandwich being a hybrid mesh of flavors, I am not sure about how the apps will work resolution wise as well functionality. So, that's a bigger reason for me to to stick to what I know for the time being. That said leaks or not I'm soooooo siked for the Vigor so hurry the up Big Red!

    Was interested in the Vigor...until I saw ICS. It fixes all my gripes about Android, and comes packaged in some really nice hardware. As much as I like Sense and HTC, the GNex is what I'm looking for in a phone. (and the RAZR is a close second)

    it looks like a glorified incredible 2 or sensation. I personally am liking the design of the Razr or Nexus more

    When it comes to smartphones it really is all about personal taste. One of the main reasons I'm not getting the phones you named is because I hate their look. I mean I'm sure they are good phones in their own rite but MAN. The Razr is just way to boxy for me and the Nexus is just..... well it's hard to put into words but the best I can think of at the moment is it looks sterile. I mean it looks like it wants to be edgy but not too edgy, classy but not too classy, modest but not too modest. It just looks sort of nothing specialish. That's just my opinion and you know what they say about those..lol.

    well of course with anything style and looks and opinions play a huge part. I just feel like this device looks like everything else they have come out with. It's like the I phone why in the world would anyone want the same thing over and over and over again. I respect that everyone has there opinions and feelings of what they like but until I see all 3 phones in hand then I can finally get rid of my I phone

    And yet the iphone 4S sold out all it's pre-orders...lol. I mean I agree with some of what you said but it just seems like sometimes logic has nothing to do with things. I have never seen disappoint in apple fanboys more than I did with the 4S release. I mean look wise it's literally the same exact phone and it still is on it's way to being the best selling iphone ever...sigh.

    I think part of the buying experience with the I phone was people who had a 3gs and were waiting for there upgrades to come. And then blackberry crashed in good timing with the 4s arriving. To me. I was disappointed. I waited for a bigger screen. New software, etc etc. But there upgrades to there iOS are still only catching up to android. Thats coming from someone who has a macbook, 27in mac, i pad, i pod, i phone lol. And now I'm turning the cheek and looking for the next best thing and I phone to me is not it.
