    Am I the only person who noticed a 720x1280 screen (2.25' x 4") would be a retina display (320 dpi, almost exactly same as iphone 326 dpi) and even though it would be 4.8" it would fit in the same sized phone as today's 4.3' screens (2.21" vs. 2.25").

    I don't know about you but a dual core 1.5 ghz 4.8" screen with native 720p rendering sounds like a game changer. It will almost eliminate the benefit of carrying a tablet around all the time. Internet surfing and streaming video will be awesome and it will still fit as well in your pocket as a Samsung Galaxy S II.

    Now that is some Ice Cream Sand-witch I want to sink my teeth into!

    I've been looking at 720p since I love the higher resolutions and I don't see myself going back down from the iP4 in that regard. The rumored LG P930 had me salivating.

    where did the article say 4.5 inch screen? If it was 4 inch, the ppi would be 367, which beats the iphone 4. Even a 4.3 inch display would beat the iphone, with 341

    Yea Im just wondering, the article said 4G LTE and yes ATT and is putting up one of these networks however its not even up yet its seems crazy that Google would throw all its weight behind an ATT network that might only be working in a couple of cities if that by Xmas, so does that mean (dare I dream) that its coming to Verizon????? So is this report a big streaming pile or fact???? Sure with BMX was still with Verizon!!!

    First of all (not to burst anyones bubble) Verizon will not support a completely open Android Platform where they can't lock down tethering and can't load their bloatware.

    Secondly, At&t is the same way, the fact that the Nexus S didn't support 3G on AT&T should say something.

    Thirdly, T-Mo is out of the question with all the drama that's going on with the merger/senate hearings. If I was a corp exec, that's the last place I'd launch a pilot operating system phone.

    And lastly, Sprint and Google are getting nice and cozy in bed together with full google voice integration and the rapid launch of the Nexus S 4G, (T-mo sales were pathetic on both the Nexus One and S). Google is going to launch it where the developers have the most freedom to bring ICS to popularity... which is Sprint (the most desperate company, so they'll do whatever Google says.) The Prime is coming to Sprint... period.

    And personally I hope its an HTC device, they seem to know what they're doing compared to Samsung, which Samsung's Galaxy line left a bad taste in customers' mouths. Plus if its a TI chipset, its more than likely a Motorola handset...

    Verizon almost got the Nexus One - the availability said "coming soon" on google.com/phone for a while, until they pulled the plug. Perhaps Verizon and Google have come to an agreement two Nexus phones later?

    Secondly, At&t is the same way, the fact that the Nexus S didn't support 3G on AT&T should say something.
    The Nexus S 9020A supports U.S. AT&T 3G.

    Thirdly, T-Mo is out of the question with all the drama that's going on with the merger/senate hearings. If I was a corp exec, that's the last place I'd launch a pilot operating system phone.
    Keep in mind that the GSM Nexus is not an officially supported phone on any carrier here. Google doesn't need to reach an agreement with any GSM carrier - they just sell it themselves as an unlocked phone.

    And lastly, Sprint and Google are getting nice and cozy in bed together with full google voice integration and the rapid launch of the Nexus S 4G, (T-mo sales were pathetic on both the Nexus One and S).

    Things do look good for future Nexus phones on Sprint. This doesn't necessarily affect the GSM version, however. Remember - the Nexus line is sold worldwide, and most of the world is GSM.

    Why Motorola? LG Optimus 3D has a TI chip.

    But I'm with you on the HTC part. I also wouldn't mind if it was made by LG or Motorola. HTC makes solid hardware all around - interior and exterior. I really don't like that plastic feel of Samsung's phones! I feel like if I dropped my Nexus S on the ground it would shatter into pieces. That's why when I walk it's either in my pocket or I'm holding it with a death-grip! I know there's a lot of people who'd prefer a heavier aluminum unibody design than a featherweight shiny plastic.

    Spec-wise, this next Nexus sounds great and all, but by the time it's actually released it might already have some competition, even if others don't have the next OS version.

    Ya, I'm not saying its not possible, just a very slim chance for Verizon... Was there an update for 3G on the Nexus S T-mo version or is the 9020A a different model? Cause I know when it first launched there was no 3G... I sold maybe 2 of them for AT&T customers when it first came out, now I just sell the Nexus S 4G...

    And come to think of it, with Verizon's new tiered plans coming, they might just be getting ready for an open google device! I didn't even think of that...

    Ya I didn't even think about LG, it'd be nice to see LG get back in the races with a pure google phone, that'd help them a lot I would think.

    Me personally, I'm waiting for these new TI OMAP 5 chips, those have me chomping at the bit for some sick battery life and 2GHZ Dual Core action!

    OP had mentioned 4.8" screen with what seemed to me like incorrect dpi figures so I went with 4.5" for two reasons: in my estimation 720p on anything smaller than 4.5" would seem like a waste and 4.3" paved the way for larger handsets as well as we already have a couple of 4.5" released recently (see Infuse and Inspire); at 4.5" it would match the 326ppi on the iP4 which is a great looking screen and Android needs to at least match it in the "spec race" that we ourselves are pushing so it's no longer a ding against it on a comparison chart.
    Just my opinions and "guesstimations" based in part on hardware trends and my own wishes for a better screen.

    Remember folks, BGR didn't say that the Nexus Prime is coming out for all carriers. He said that flagship devices will be coming out for all carriers - so like the OG Droid, Xoom, etc. I'm not sure what the rules are for "flagship" devices but I could see Verizon making them limit some things like the tethering before they allow it on their network.

    imo It looks just like the Nexus of today. You can take a pick at the right angle not to show [the] buttons.
    That picture is of the Nexus S turned off. Its just there to provide context, not really intended to be a preview of the phone. If they really did have pictures of the actual device, don't you think they would have discussed, or at least mentioned, the appearance? They've had and used that picture for a while with many of their Nexus themed posts

    I would love to see a phone like this on Verizon. Obviously, the LTE rumor would indicate most strongly Verizon, but AT&Tmo is building their LTE network as well. Further, Sprint will be moving to LTE (although I don't know when that would be). As previously mentioned, Sprint is also very much in bed with Google (to the point of a rumored merger between the two I think I read somewhere on this site). I don't think the argument that Verizon won't get it because of the tethering apps is bunk because NONE of the major providers want you to be able to tether for free. Also rumored with the release of ICS was the disappearance of capacitive/physical buttons, thus allowing for a larger screen in the sam physical space as the smaller screen/button combinations of today.

    Whatever the specs and provider, here is what I'd like to see: An operating system and programs that can fully take advantage of the hardware. Give me something that works and works well. We're talking about quad-cores when dual cores can't even really be taken advantage of yet. I would appreciate a dual core beast that can be fully taken advantage of due to the software optimizing its operation than a real "spec monster" that can't last a day because of all the bleeding edge technology. Instead of upping my cores/screen size/speed, invest in battery technology so I'm not looking for an outlet every four hours. Isn't that truly the point of a "mobile" phone anyway? Give me a solid device that works as well on day 720 as day one. Afterall, we are getting locked in to contracts that only offer upgrades every two years these days. YMMV,

    Hmm.... Google as a wireless provider? I'm in. It'd be cheap, effective and have beta programs for whatever new technologies (WiMAX/LTE merge or new software/apps akin to GVoice) they could come up with! Has anyone thought that this may be a Global phone with a combo WiMAX/LTE radio which can be sim'ed to someone's network like Verizon already uses for their LTE? If so, they'd have CDMA, GSM, WiMAX (based off of the 802 standards so might be able to do a combo Wifi/Wimax radio) and LTE! Then it would work on ANY network!
