    All we need is a unlocked bootloader and were fine no matter what's done to it. Root will kill the bloat and if we have a unlocked bootloader we will have stock ics. If this phone is locked it would turn me away.

    i pretty much agree - rooting and unlocked BL solves most of these issues. but, if it's not a stock device out of the box, then we are dependent on dev'rs for the OS updates. whereas if it were stock, the updates would come straight from Google. again, i agree with you - not a huge deal, but it would just make things much simpler if Sammy and VZW would keep their grubby little paws off the one thing us Andy enthusiasts hold sacred...

    Cant agree more.

    I still see it being stock regardless, anyway.

    Looks like this will indeed be the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon. Is this the death of the prime?

    What if Samsung releases two phones on Verizon. One named the Droid Prime that replaces the Charge. The Prime could sport a keyboard, 4G, and have ICS.

    The other phone will be the Samsung Galaxy Nexus which is apparently in the hand of testers.

    The Stratosphere is a mid-tier phone so that's not likely an issue.

    The Prime is gonna still be a sammy device. And if it's the one with a keyboard, i'll take it. I really don't care about getting STOCK ics. That's what rooting is for.

    3 Sammy devices within 1 or 2 months. That's a big pill to swallow.

    Well on article says that the Prime is an actual phone, it's just not the Nexus. It also said the HTC Vigor is better than the Prime which is not the Nexus. It went on the say that there is indeed a Nexus device.

    The second article is said the person said that the Vigor is better than the Nexus, but that is not what it said at all. it said the Vigor was better than the Prime, which the first article said is NOT the Nexus. Also how can a Nexus phone not be stock? The second article sounds like complete bull.

    Doesn't surprise me at all if the first article is true. I've been saying all along the the Prime and the next Nexus is not the same phone.

    Believe me, I have always doubted thedroidguy. Don't think there hasn't been anything credible to come from that site that hasn't already been known. Kellex on the other hand is someone I trust. His reviews are top notch and his information has been quite good in the past few months.If you read through the comments in the Droid-life article it is obvious that Kellex knows a bit more about this device then he is letting on. He seems to be posting the information from droidguys site because some of it is indeed credible. Kellex posted this information instead of his own to protecting his sources (seems to be self imposed NDA).

    What I think is confusing everyone today is the slide out keyboard debate. Kellex seems to be adamantly against it being VZW Nexus device. And in his defense, there has been zero mention of the Nexus Prime having a slider in any "leak". Hoax leak or not, it wasn't until Panda that we started hearing about one and its pretty late in the game for a phone that will be shipping in November.

    There seems to be three phones being talked about here. The Galaxy Nexus (sounds like there could be Droid branding) appears to be the VZW phone and I will put money on it not being a slider. With the Stratosphere coming out in the next month and the Droid 3 still being quite relevant I doubt that another slider is on its way. The market for them is not nearly as large. It also sounds like this is not a true Nexus device. Although at this point I think it is too early to tell. The Nexus device that everyone on here wants sounds like it will come out shortly after the Galaxy Nexus, probably closer to the Holidays.

    As for what will be on these phones. Who knows. There is a description of the Galaxy Nexus in the droid-life comments which Kellex agrees with. They seem reasonable but still very much speculation. My guess is something more solid will be coming in the next two/three weeks, especially if the Vigor is indeed coming out in mid October. I'd expect a good amount of "leaks" of the Nexus prior to Vigor's release.

    And actually, come to think of it, the possibility of them Prime being a different phone than the next Nexus was brought up weeks ago in one of those BGR articles everyone was basing all their info on. It just got ignored for some reason

    Yeah my bad I agree. I think I got the two dudes mixed up. Droidguy had the bs article that came out last week talking about the samsung chip being in the nexus.
