    Nothing I can really show you without people screaming "FAKE!", but a reliable tipster's shown me a Word doc that points to a possible Oct. 27 launch. Certainly in the realm of possibility since we're expecting an Oct 11 announcement.

    Note that it's also listed as the "Samsung Prime" -- no mention of "Nexus." Not sure whether to worry about that. But gut says not to. Also says it's a replacement for the Droid Charge.

    Update: Now that other sites are reporting the same news (*cough*), we'll show you the actual Word doc.

    I'm glad Apple isn't the only company that is capable of releasing a product within weeks of announcing it. I really hate being teased new products and then having to wait months for a release.

    Thanks phil. Hopefully this doesn't end up like the Thunderbolt. I remember when you told us your source predicted February 14 or 17th. Then it got delayed lol

    Fake! Kidding, but seriously this is good news. My upgrade isn't till the 19th, but at least this will give me a chance to see the device and how people react to it and the issues it's bound to have at launch.

    It will be a Verizon droid with ICS on the OMAP platform. This droid will be a respectable one if Verizon can keep from locking it down and bloating it to much. Look forward to the droooiiiid. (did you think it wouldn't, lol)

    Verizons iteration first, then a month or two later the "undroid branded" ones will hit the networks that carry the nexus name.

    It "could" be a droid, but it very well might not be. That's just a theory. Just in case anyone is wondering.

    Various rumors have called the phone:

    Droid Prime
    Samsung Galaxy Nexus
    Samsung Prime
    Nexus Prime

    I'm sure I'm missing others.

    Verizon's best Google device was a droid OG. Look at the direction it went. It will be a droid because that sells phones on verizon, but let us hope it is like the OG, mostly pure and unlocked.

    I could be wrong, maybe Verizon got drunk and allowed a pure untouched holy Google phone to hit the shelf????? Nah, it is Verizon.

    Its untouched as far as the information we gathered. I highly doubt it'll be Droid branded. I'm willing to bet Verizon simply gave the device the okay, but aren't selling them. Who knows, maybe Google paid them enough to sell and advertise their Nexus phone.

    I'm pretty sure it's going to be a Droid device. Verizon is not going to release a nexus device, and what else would they brand it?

    Why the hell would they stick an OMAP proc in there instead of the Exynos? That alone might make me forget about it. All I heard from reviewers was how awesome and blazing fast the E4GT was because of the Exynos.

    Between the iFail 4S announcement today and you posting that, I don't know WTF to do.

    I'm a VZ customer now but I'll wait for a true Nexus device. I'm sick of VZ's BS, they have to be the 2nd or 3rd most annoying company on the planet.

    Seriously. It seems as if VZW once again want's to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Why can't they just release an awesome phone, untouched. They always have to stick their hands in and muck things up. If their coverage wasn't so awesome I would have told them to shove it and went with AT&T or T-Mo.
