    CK, If the rumor is true about Nexus Prime coming to VZW would you still get the S2 or the Nexus?
    Nexus...

    Do we really think Vzw will "allow" a nexus device on their network that they can not control?

    I could see it, they do so with iPhone, and they have very limited control over Windows Phone 7 handsets.

    Yes, if Google pays them enough. They let the Motorola Droid and Motorola Xoom on their network. Only thing they control on those devices are pricing and contribute to the update process.

    Added note: I'd most likely pass on the Nexus Prime if it has a 4.6" display. That's just too much. It better have an HD display if its going to be that big. That would make consider it again.

    it will supposedly have super amoled hd screen. but, don't forget that they are eliminating the soft menu/home/back/search buttons and incorporating them into the screen. so, the space taken up by those buttons can be subsumed into the screen, and the physical dimensions of the device won't change noticeably.

    I am wondering who is the manufacturer for this Nexus? LG is next in line and they are not favorable on my list of good phone manufacturer.

    There is no line. So far every major phone manufacturer has sent in a prototype candidate for the Nexus Prime. LG and Sony Ericcson are at the bottom of the barrel. My guess is Samsung or HTC. Aside from this rumor, last I heard was that the manufacturer still hasn't been picked. Also, each prototype has different specs. Take this with a huge grain of salt for now.

    can't pass up a Nexus device. Plus Samsung is making it. What more could I ask for.

    My wait continues. This is becoming the story of my life. I swear Husker I SHOULD be purchasing something this year. All signs point to it....

    Wow, this throws a wrench into everything. I would hate having to wait until October, but this phone basically has everything I love about the S2 and then adds onto it. Only thing I didn't like about the specs is it look likes the cameras, both front and back, took a bit of a hit.

    I think a big factor for me might be whether the S2 has LTE or not. I might also just get the S2 and sell it after the prime comes out, but it seems silly to take the financial hit for such a short time.

    *knock on wood, for chrissake; knock on wood!!!!!!!! if the Prime doesn't come out this year, it will be because CK jinxed it...

    i haven't paid much attention because Nexus devices have never been on VZW - but, i'm assuming that the developer support for Nexus devices is pretty stout???

    Well, that certainly makes the mid-August rumors more feasible.

    That's why we're pleased to announce 4G LTE Verizon Wireless and Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1!

    Lame indeed. Android and me just got a Samsung Galaxy SII box, inside was a small looking glass... Also, it appears AT&T is getting a non-qwerty version as well.

    Keep watch for the next generation Galaxy S | Android and Me

    An annoncement must be close. Samsung is building a lot of hype this week and at this point, I'm pretty sure Samsung is behind these leaks. We have had like 4 or 5 'leaks' this past week or so, most of them being today.

    This is BS!! Why is VZW dragging their feet. There are more choices on other carriers for phones. It sucks. If there service wasn't so good I would jump ship.

    I say asked and answered.
