    Stock/Touchwiz/Bloatware probably won't get in the way of me purchasing this device. Yeah, I'd prefer stock in true Nexus-fashion, but if it's not I still think it's going to be a kick *** phone that VZW will treat as their flagship device.
    Yeah, stock or no stock, this is going to be a kick *** phone!
    Super Huge 720p Resolution (1280x720). MiniTablet baby! Oh yeah! Now, we're talking. Forget buying an Android or iPad tablet and a smartphone...buy a phone that's both a Tablet & a Smartphone
    Android 4.0 ICS - Sweet new revision of the OS...I'm still stuck on 2.2 (rooted and haven't made the time to update).
    Thin Metal Chassis - how knows? Maybe rumors are right and the body will be sexy.

    What does the sgs2 have to do with the Nexus??? News flash people want the Nexus because it's stock duh!
    It illustrates the point that there are no other stock device options to choose from. Thus, it's pretty much irrelevant. As a matter of fact, I'll go as far as to call his bluff on this one.

    I'd love to have a pure Google Android phone with no bloatware installed...but...I'll deal with bloatware if I have to and root the phone if need be. I think most of us are most interested in the huge high quality Samsung res and ICS.

    The 4.65" 720 screen is far and away the most intriguing aspect of the rumored specs thus far...not to say I'm not excited about ICS, speed, etc, but the screen is going to be absolutely incredible if these rumors come true.

    4Chan allows anonymous posting of information. Basically, anyone can post anything about anything. Highly unreliable source but as I mentioned in another post, I will take any information I can get on this device.

    I call bull. One report they are saying it's running gingerbread because ICS isn't available yet. Now all of a sudden it was running ICS? Also like they mentioned ICS is Gingerbread 2.3 plus Honeycomb 3.0 so how can the number be 2.4? Also why would Verizon want the Samsung chip VS the TI chip? I think now they are just making this crap up either web hits, or for some ***** to be able to brag about his made up info, on made up specs made the web news. Also, why the hell would a Samsung employee sit down with some random guy to talk about this phone? Why??? For what purpose? I call bull! Not going to lie the "specs" of the "SGSIII" sounds amazing more reason it's probably more bull!!

    on the whole, i think you're right - it's a load. but, some of the assertions cause me some pause. for example, the idea that ICS might be numbered 2.4. i remember months ago when the ICS name leaked, it was suggested at that time that even though it was coming after HC, it would have a 2.4 number. so, that's not completely out of whack.

    as for the chip, we've all been working under the assumption that it would be a OMAP chip, because of Google's announcement that TI was its preferred chip partner. but, that announcement just came recently, and (if Google is to be believed) the Nexus has been under development for almost a year now. so, it would be reasonable to assume that Sammy chose its own chip initially, and it may not have been possible to switch over to Google's "preferred" chip.

    so, some of this stuff is entirely possible. but, it is also something that could have just been made up using the rationale i did. the thing that speaks most to me is the way in which this guy leaked the info - that, more than anything, just reeks of being unreliable.

    I think it is because VZW will get the Droid version of the phone. I still think it will be stock ICS, but come with some bloat.

    I think it will be like the OG Droid. Stock with some bloat. That is my .02.....

    Just to make sure no one missed it, the following is part of the poem that @tfleming223 has given.

    "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."

    Im guessing this line means and announcement on Halloween

    "Perhaps your palate will cast a ballot, for an ice cream sandwich instead"
    and this line means a release date of November 8th, because that is the day voting will take place this year
