    Is it possible that the GS3 developer edition is the new nexus phone? Can anyone shed some light on this POSSIBLE PIPE DREAM? Please understand that this is total speculation on my part due to the delay of any info about this dev. phone.

    Too close to the last Nexus phone launch, and not enough difference in hardware to warrent a new nexus.

    but that is just the thing: no announcement on a release date for this thing. And isn't there a new nexus every year or so?

    Suggestions lean towards a different OEM than ever before, like Motorola or someone else. Motorola would be interesting actually. I would welcome that, and it would make sense since Google now owns Moto. I'm sure they could make a really neat "Nexus Moto"

    A Motorola android without moto blur. That would be awesome.

    Google would never use the button configuration on the S3... but that would a fairly easy hardware modification for Samsung to make... I could see it happening. Although, I wouldn't be surprised if Google is in the process of designing their new platform around Qualcomm's new Quad-Core Snapdragon S4 (APQ8064/Adreno 320).

    The S3 Developer Edition is not the new Nexus. The only reason that phone is released is because on Verizon they restricted the original S3 so much. So to satisfy customers Samsung made a less restrictive "Developer Edition".

    If Samsung makes the next Nexus I think it's safe to say it will have a lot in common with the S3 since every previous Nexus phone resembled the equivalent Galaxy S model. But Samsung always dumbs down the specs on the Nexus phone in comparison to the same generation Galaxy S phone.

    Watch the next Nexus still have 5MP camera or something...

    I expect the S3 developer's version to still have Touchwiz, which obviously won't be on the Nexus. I'm surprised we don't know anything about the next Nexus at this point.

    Thanks, Robrecht
