    My amusement is because I don't think the sg2 and prime will ever compete timewise. The sg2 is the best android device this year. Should be good iPhone comp.

    Agree, Prime is vapor in 2011. I predict Q1 2012 it will drop

    I hope it does drop that early, being in school, I can only get one or the other and I am not one to wait. I hope VZW gets the S2 soon! A charge, dx2, TB2 don't even interest me.

    That is IF the prime turn out to be what people hope. I think a lot of these phones come down to a few things. 1) hype: we want this super phone and every year we want better than what we got. When we had d1's clocked to 600 we wanted 1 gig. When we got d2's and dx's at 1 gig we want dual core. We will always want to see the limits pushed. 2) Manufactures and engineers may have 3 or 4phones slated as the premiere device (for the sake of my post lets call it the nexus megatron). So they may have 3 or 4 nexus megatrons being tested. One of them may be a quad core, super hd display, speaker sound and quality of bose speakers, and built like a tank. The others may be missing certain features or have a different design look. They will then present them to the carriers. The carrier will weigh cost and how much they can make off of it. The super phone may be the best of all specs but it will cost more and most us carriers know that the threshold for phones are 99-249 (really 99-199). So they will have to eat the cost of those phones initially, but they know they will make it back. Now the carrier want to pay as little as possible in this deal so if they can get you buying it at 249 then they make more of a profit the rest of your contract. If you get it for free then they have to wait 6 months before they profit.
    My point being that the testers may leak all these pics and specs of a super phone, but until the carrier buy off on it, it may never leave the testing grounds. SO it is not that all the leaks about superphones are fake, though some are, it is just many are concept phones that may get axed or pushed back for another year. Will the specs for the nexus prime actually turn out to make it to the shelves or are we seeing a concept device that will not see the light of day?

    No idea if the rumored specs will make into consumers hands pc747 but It's a safe bet to say one is in the pipeline. Where, when and who will get it is anyone's guess at this time. I realize there is rumor it's coming to Verizon but until that is verified all it is is rumor.

    I'll take the stance of "wait and see" on that.

    I won't be waiting on it though. If it comes out Q1 I'll make the decision then to pay full retail or not.

    I agree, it definitely will drop. Wait and see

    I dont doubt it will drop. Just hope big red actually jumps on the nexus band wagon and it turn out to be a promoted device either that or they just make it another DROID.

    Seriously doubt Google would allow Verizon to brand their device as a Droid device.

    I was meaning that they have the device in place and later just change from nexus to Droid, ie Incredible was suppose to be a nexus device but fell through so they rebranded it.

    The inc was never meant to be a nexus. Verizon got it because at the time google was only selling the nexus phones online so the carriers wouldn't make any money off of them.

    I really don't think it'll come to Verizon. The Nexus phones still don't generate the sales of flagship Droid devices with their marketing, so popularity isn't a reason for Verizon wanting it (as has been stated).
