There you have it.

First off I want to thank the source. That being said, we really don't have any new info Prime related here besides maybe the FCC thing.

Thanks again to Steven. Without thinking, I would go for the NP over the RAZR. I had to pull my DX battery about once a week or more. A clean OS might put the NP over the top. Not much the Inside Source told us though. Guess they are keeping some tight clamps on stuff.

Well, maybe the OMAP 4460 will still be awesome, no?

Besides, you have a huge advantage over us, German! Don't you have the Note releasing over there soon? That's supposed to be great for gaming, I think.

I feel bad about this... my dad was ready to make the switch from his blackberry to an Android phone and I sold him on the Bionic with the lapdock. I would have let him wait for the Nexus like me, but he really liked the idea of the lapdock, and I'm not sure Nexus phones have had anything like that. Luckily though, he's not all that in tuned to what's going on the tech world, so if the RAZR comes out and is a real hit, he won't know the difference.

LOL. Poor guy.

I tried selling my Dad on waiting for the Bionic, too, a few weeks before I came to hate it. He didn't listen to me and got the Charge, of all things. Weeks before the release of all these phones!

But, he loves it. He doesn't care all that much about phones, really, and is ecstatic over 4G.

We don't talk about this thread. At all.

Ahem! Cough! Yawn.......

Correct me if I'm wrong but none of us are expecting any official from Samsung, Motorola or Texas instruments to post official information on this board about the Prime eh?

Also, remember that the source did NOT handle the RAZR. He might think that the Prime is fast as hell, and it probably is, and the testers might think the RAZR is fast as hell, even though it isn't as fast as the Prime.

I'm not expecting Exynos on this baby, but who knows, we might be surprised! As Steven pointed out, this guy is not a beta tester. Maybe he's like the husband of a corporate girl and got to play with it for a few minutes. We have no idea what he did with it. He probably didn't even play any games on it.

Chin up, German. We're still not quite there!

He's probably shaking in his boots of letting anything slip. But yeah, if his intention was to calm us down, it didn't work.

Did you hear that, VZ? It didn't work!

Although I did find the "excellent battery life" of the RAZR interesting, did you guys?

Also, if Motorola is making a 4G phone that thin (compared to the Bionic), then what's to stop Samsung from manufacturing a thinner cpu and 4G chipset.

Hmm. . . maybe the Exynos will be there.

My head hurts.

don't think so... i think the OMAP 4460 isn't even as powerful as the exynos4210 used in the galaxy s2...especially in 3d gaming (GPU-Performance), thats very important for me (and of course the nice 720p screen, LTE and ICS) and i thought i wouldn't be disappointed cause of the CTIA category 'Gaming & Entertainment Enthusiasts', thats exactly what i am...

and yeah i know the Galaxy Note is coming to Germany soon (about 22. - 29. october), but i don't want to carry such a huge device with me... 5,3" is too large for me as i've got small hands... also the Note is very expensive.. :/

well for me, i think i should not stop believing... 'sources' can be true, but can also be wrong, sometimes they're even knowingly wrong so we expect something not so awesome and are positively suprised when it comes out...

hope... still... exists...

You got that right. I was looking at one of those and followed the Motorola support boards pretty close and what a horror story it was. All the while I was waiting on the Bi@ni& and got a sinking feeling about it.

I'm very very happy w/my OG Droid's 264dpi, and if all they did was make it 4.65", brighter in sunlight, and have better battery life, then that'd be nirvana for me.

It'll definitely be that!

BTW, I'm happy to be wrong about Pentile HD being better in major ways than RGB HD. And even if I can't tell a visual difference between the two, maybe someone w/younger eyes will appreciate it.

I was hoping to see a good RGB S/AMOLED/+/? display here in higher resolution, once and for all.

And in any case - that's if I read that leak by Steven correctly.

All in my opinion, your mileage may vary.

Not that I put much credence in that rumor, Hummingbird has now been renamed to Exynos 3110. So at least that part is not incorrect. Not that I believe any of this. I would actually hope that SG III would be better than this rumor.

Back on topic, heck, I would be happy with a 1.4 GHz Exynos 4210 (which we know exist, as in Galaxy Note and Tab 7.7) in the Nexus Prime. I'm so confused by all these conflicting rumors that I have no ideal what the real specs will be. It would surely be nice we had a confirmed date for the delayed announcement so we'll know the real specs.

I just wish, from the bottom of my sweet, wonderful and sincere heart, that:

1. Steven's "source" would live a little dangerously and actually give us something concrete, never before leaked info, or at least confirm something that's been leaked to the other sites regarding CPU, battery, or whatever. (not screen).

OR

2. Samsung and Google announce their new "unpacked event" either tonight or tomorrow morning (I'll give them a pass on not doing it today since today is reserved for commemorating a man credited with "discovering" America, even though he didn't and even though it didn't need to be "discovered" since there were already a million indians living here who had "discovered" it a thousand years ago) saying that they will be holding the official announcement (which will also involve Verizon) this Friday morning at 10 am PST. That will put it smack dab during my lunch hour and I will be able to sit through it without interruption from my stupid and pesky coworkers.

Please. Either 1 or 2. I don't care which.

My understanding is that though it's "only" qHD, the RAZR screen is the Super AMOLED Plus that is on the GSG2, with NO pentile, as opposed to the AMOLED HD, with pentile, supposedly on the Nexus. (Yes, I read somewhere that the screen for the RAZR is made by Samsung.)

I really can't wait to see these screens side by side to compare them by sight rather than by specs.

Sorry, that might be my fault. I said that I didn't think it'd have Exynos 4212 because the RAZR, too, was noted to be super fast and smooth (although not by the source), and that the "overall advantage" was ICS. I'd think if it was an Exynos, that'd be the overall advantage (speed, graphics, gaming, etc.).

I made that assumption and some ran with it. But upon further reflection, that's just my opinion, and it's not really based on anything. Much like many of my opinions.

I hate to do this, but it has to be done. I have a source in NSA, with it's 28 acres of underground computers. I will have him do a covert intercept of all cell phones of Google, Verizon, and Samsung executives. The automatic computer program will look for the following words: Release Date, Processor, Announcement, and Phandroid. Also, a team will be dispatched to pick up VZ_wired.

My first post, but I been reading this thread for the last 4 days. I think was happening we are dissecting every little detail a source gives. We are confusing ourselves by this, if someone says they bump their toe. It means this processor or that will not be in the NP. Instead of taking what the source or sources is really saying.
I believe Tuesday or maybe Wednesday we will get more info concerning the NP, maybe the new date for the announcement!! We need to clam down and be a little more patient and we will get all the info we wanted!! But I do enjoy all the humor from everyone!! Its hilarious!!!

I work cases between Atlanta & Tennessee. I have been wondering what some of the folks here must be getting into to come up with some of this stuff.
The other day I was trying to get an angle on a subject and trudged into a little section of brush.
All of a sudden my nostrils were filled with an old familiar smell and tickling my nose was as you see in the pic. I thought, this must be what some of those guys are doing! Heh! Maybe I should try it so I can wait peacefully. It was all over the place and I got the heck out of there. It looks kind of ready too.

Hi guys, checking in.

I don't know whether Steven's source was trying to give you an idea of what the CPU is, or was maybe just trying to give you an overall feel for why Verizon is so excited about the RAZR.

Anyhow, I can tell that you guys are pretty disappointed. That probably wasn't the idea the source had in mind.

While I can't specify the internals, I can tell you that the Nexus device WAS the finalist for the "Gamer and Entertainment Enthusiast", and it would have won, too.

:-)

First of all, I'd like to thank the "Source" for risking his/her job to give us the little snippets. As much as we get frustrated from time to time, I think the tease is part of the fun!

This last tease is nothing but good news. The NP has a "much better" screen and user experience. In addition the overall advantage is ICS. I realize they are comparing the NP to another phone we have no real world experience with but I'd rather hear that than "the Razer rocks!".

oh god i love you, pls marry me!

long lives the gamer


right ~10 minutes ago i was thinking about buying a Galaxy S2, and now i want to wait for the NP again... i think i'll never get a new smartphone ~.~

I read through all of their web docs, and while the underlying technology does have legitimate benefits, many of their claims were bogus or exaggerated. IMO, a decent technology marketed sleazy.

Interesting, I wonder what those are (offline). But I'd leave it up to the phone manufacturers themselves to decide which screen technology to use... and to live with whatever battery life consequences that means for the users.

I'm not [yet] convinced of that. Eyes are more sensitive to certain colors than others. White subpixels are more efficient than a combination of RGB subpixels. And pixel grain does become less noticeable at higher densities. It makes sense to use designs that maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses without regard to what ostensibly seems elegant or symmetrical.

I am not disappointed. I'm very excited that the RAZR compares favorably to the Nexus. Thanks for helping us through this tough time!

So... TI OMAP 4460 + the GPU from the iPad or better...does that please the spec hoes enough?

The difference is processors is negligible enough, I take connectivity (ANT+, Bluetooth Low Energy) over a few frames in some handheld game. BTW ... 10/11/11 @ 11:11.10 still has hope! Forza Motorsports 4!!! There is your gaming experience.

Thanks! I knew that Steven's source didn't mean to give a false impression. I think that was my fault for jumping the gun.

Thanks again!

if it's the 4460, it can't have the 543mp2.

I believe Tuesday or maybe Wednesday we will get more info concerning the NP, maybe the new date for the announcement!! We need to clam down and be a little more patient and we will get all the info we wanted!! But I do enjoy all the humor from everyone!! Its hilarious!!!

Aww cmon. I think this last post was some of the more "stable" evidence we've seen pointing towards the exynos. I know in a few minutes you'll change from pessimistic to optimistic Hans.

Sorry, I was just being silly. Boy, I seem to be rubbing a lot of people the wrong way today.

I only mean to be rubbing some of you the right way.

Anyway, in my opinion, I think that there is some evidence for Exynos and some evidence against it.

I hope for your sake and r4yN, that it's true. I just don't do games on phones, so I'll be happy with whatever it has.

Yes. I'm fully back on the Prime wagon. For at least the next 24 hours.

Woo hoo!

but you would accept 30% less power consumption,which the exynos 4212 features, wouldn't you?

was there an entertainment only category?

because to me, gaming and entertainment could simply mean the nexus has the best screen for viewing movies/pictures/etc. i think the group of people expecting the exynos should hope for it, but expect the 4460. better to be pleasantly surprised than let down, right?

I'm going to be a sad panda if the Prime screen looks anything the current crop of Pentile screens. I know it's much higher resolution so it shouldn't, but still... The X2/Bionic screens bug the crap out of my eyes, especially because I read a lot on the phone. One of the links a page or two back claimed it was no disappointment because they thought the X2 screen looked great but I think it looks fugly.

OMAP vs. Exynos doesn't matter to me; I don't game on my phone and would honestly just prefer the processor that gives the best battery life assuming no enormous discrepancy in day-to-day performance.

We'll see!

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think that 30% less would affect battery life much since the VAST MAJORITY of consumption is from the display. But still go exynos!

why no iPad GPU on TI?

Perhaps it also has to do with USB Host and support for external gaming devices and dLNA mirroring?
