Smile Getting a new phone - What to do? Opinions please.

Hey guys, I am in the market for a new phone... I was gonna pick up a Galaxy SII but I have decided to wait for the Nexus Prime as it's going to better and run stock Ice Cream Sandwich. But I then started thinking that by the start of next year we will be seeing a Galaxy SIII at either CES of Mobile World Congress and it will be avaliable at around May if not earlier. There are already a few leaks and opinions on what the galaxy SIII will be like and it will be even better than the Nexus Prime.

So my dilema is, Should I get a Nexus Prime when its out (and that will be the best smartphone for around 6 months) or should I wait that time, run my current phone on SIM only and then get one of the new superphones next year like the Galaxy SIII or something else if HTC come out with something amazing? Then if I do that it will be around 6 months till the 2012 nexus, so whatever I do the phone I get will be the best for 6 months... Im just not sure if I want the Nexus or an actual Samsung branded phone like the SIII.

Thing is the Samsungs and HTCs that are released at that start of the years such as the Galaxy SII and HTC Desire (which is what I have now) always seem to be better and more popular than the Nexus phones and they win awards for phone of the year like the Desire did last year and Galaxy SII did this year, and the Nexus devices never do... However they do have a nice stock build of Android, quick updates and fast software.

Sorry that was a lot to take in but what are your thoughts and what do you think I should do?

Any input is welcome, my brain is fried with all this thinking lol.
