    He could have meant the GSII wasn't coming But i can see them telling people that and pushing them the Bionic. When i went to the Sprint store for my Gift card one for the sales clerks was trying to pitch me the Photon lol I let him and when he was done i told him why I was there. He just said O and walked away lol

    What I like about Motorola is they Create some good phones and accessories but the Execution of them boggles me. The Bionics redesign is IMO what did it for them. They should just release the first 1 and called this something else or vise versa. I love the laptop dock but making it so it can only be used by one phone . Not a fan of Moto but if i was on Verizon i might have got it...

    You wouldn't have gotten the bionic if you were using it and the phone next to it was a Samsung Charge... They made a mistake placing those 2 phones next to each other.

    Rep was telling me that the Nexus was not coming to Verizon, how much do you think Verizon is putting into their heads to sell people on the Bionic.
    me
    These reps really annoy me. They literally know nothing about future phones. They barely know the phones they sell.

    I agree that Verizon is really annoying about selling phones. They get a phone in their sights as a "seller" and all they do is push it. I was looking a month or 2 ago at the LG Revolution, Samsung Charge and the HTC TBolt because I'm up for an upgrade and even then they were saying how the Bionic take all these phones to school but out of all of them the TBolt was best. Since that was "the phone" when it came out they were pushing that. Maybe Moto will get their stuff together now that Google has bought them and they will become an innovator instead of the last one in line for high powered devices. I am praying the most recent leak that it the Nexus Prime (or Galaxy Nexus/Prime) is coming out late October. If this come out as a non-Nexus device and is due out after the HTC Vigor I don't know if I will even get it. I had a DInc and loved that thing so much that I never even rooted it. I then broke the screen and had to get a DX as a replacement even though I got the phone on release day and it was only like 7 months old.

    I just got the Bionic today and I'm really thinking I'm gonna return it within 14 days to wait for the Prime or Vigor. The Bionic is a great phone, esp the HD Dock (does Samsung or HTC have anything like this?), but I don't care for the bloatware, Motoblur is okay, I added Go Launcher and it only seemed to slow it down some. More importantly I think I can wait another month or 2 for a BETTER phone. I'll fork over the $35 restocking fee.

    I also had a DInc and absoletely loved it. I put that phone through a lot too, damaged the screen 2 different times and even tho it looked like, the screen worked perfectly. I ended up losing it on a bike ride recently and replaced it with a Vortex, blah.

    I'll give the Bionic 2 weeks to change my mind!

    edit: What are the chances of Vigor or Prime being less then $300?

    I don't know if to buy the Bionic now and just sell it when the prime gets released. My issue is I leave for training (Air Force) November 8th so I won't be able to get it anyways till Jan of 2012. Im in a 4G area and miss using 4G after selling the charge (now using my extra phone the fascinate).

    as if right on cue.... Eric Schmidt: Ice Cream Sandwich Coming in October/November - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    Google's CEO said that ICS is coming Oct/Nov, which probably means a Turkey Day/Dec release for the Prime.
    How does the release of ICS in Oct/Nov point to a late November or December release? The Nexus S came out before (or about the same time) as 2.3 was released. Once we see the ICS SDK drop I think we'll be about 2 weeks away from our Prime.

    Exactly...What would the point be of a new OS if there was nothing to run it for months. The first device will follow shortly after ICS is officially released. Hopefully that device is the Prime on VZW, I am just saying

    Maybe the bigger thing is the potential release of the Vigor and iPhone in October. Typically Verizon doesn't release devices to compete with each other, and with other devices rumored for release in October, that'll be hard to do.
    Very true.

    Maybe Google and Verizon figure that they will get more sales if released around Black Friday and Christmas especially after the iPhone hype is gone and everything settles. I think that is possible because it makes sense to me if they wait until after the initial iPhone mania that always occurs then also have it during Christmas season.

    Actually it seems like the gap between annoucement and release of devices are getting shorter now.

    I was just surmising. I hope I'm proven wrong. I just refuse to get expectations, as I've done that before and been disappointed. In fact, lots of times in these forums people get expectations as to when a device "should" release, and then become bitter when it's "delayed" (even tho there was never a formal release date).

    The point of the new OS would be that it is meshing the phone and tablet versions of Android, so to speak. I hope that no one has forgotten about the Xoom. You could easily release ICS on the Xoom first and then launch the Nexus. Just my thoughts.

    I think the Prime will drop on AT&T or T-Mobile within 2 weeks of ICS being released. If VZ gets the Prime in it's unBinged, unTouchWizzed and unBloated form I'll be shocked.

    If the prime doesn't come with LTE, I seriously hope a meteor comes and destroys the Earth because I'd be done with existence.

    They att& tmobile are getting the Galaxy s 2. But it will NOT launch with ics. Verizon is getting the prime and this is the reason the aren't selling a Galaxy s 2. A nexus device will never have bing or a custom launcher like touchwiz, blur, or sense.

    Similar situation. Been waiting since Aug. 2010. Had my eye on the Bionic after CES and then transitioned to the GS2. I'm about out of towels to throw in.
    This. First i waited for Merge, then I waited for Droid 3 (but was turned off by reports of the screen) followed by stratosphere (jurys still out on whether i could deal with owning a year old device...) then my heart was broken a third time when GSII wasnt announced on vzw.

    He could have meant the GSII wasn't coming But i can see them telling people that and pushing them the Bionic. When i went to the Sprint store for my Gift card one for the sales clerks was trying to pitch me the Photon lol I let him and when he was done i told him why I was there. He just said O and walked away lol

    Exactly. There's always seemingly some major flaw with an otherwise outstanding device. From the keyboard on the og droid, to the odd performance issues on a phone that should be an absolute screamer (motorola triumph) it's boggling tbh.

    I cant see it not being an lte phone. There's already 3 high-end 3g only phones.

    Nexus phones are development phones. With the next big mobile tech being lte and faster speeds in general, it would make no sense to not support lte and the future of mobile tech.

    I see it launching on verizon and later at&t. Possibly a sprint wimax version, but they are switching to lte also (in a partnership with lightsquared).

    Highly unlikely that Sprint LTE will be from LightSquared. That network is a very effective GPS jammer, and despite all the FUD from LS, it's LS's fault. The FCC should never have approved the waiver, and about half of congress is going to give them a beatdown for it.
