You people are hilarious. Look at the Panda Poem. There is one inaccuracy, and it's not the "red and black" line.

We don't know what you will find to complain about after the 11th, we really don't.

If you are not on Verizon you have nothing to worry about in regards to getting the Nexus. If you are a VZW customer I wouldn't hold your breath on Verizon getting it.
That's right, I try to say same thing.

This is really comical. I can imagine VZN, Sammy, and Google peeps who actually know what the deal is, reading this and laughing at us. I have never been in on a thread that can be higher than high on one post and then bottom out due to a different post or rumor. Crazy I tells ya... I think they have done an awesome job of not only keeping any leaks from happening, but putting out dis-information to combat rumors that might be true. Well played sirs....

We will see next week. But the majority of rumors/leaks are pointing to Verizon getting the first Prime/ICS device with whatever name, and possibility 10/27 according to the latest leaks from AC, Droid-Life yesterday. Also the system app list leaked last week indicates verizon apps there.

No, it may not get it till 2012, if the newest rumors are going to be true.

I am hoping the inaccuracy is the release date.... Instead of Nov it is Oct....

The poem is as follows:

Quote:
While things that go bump in the night, surely give you a fright, It’s all in good fun as I share treats and panda fun.
So Instead of filling your belly with candies, jellies and other hollows eve fare, Perhaps your palate will cast a ballot,
for an ice cream sandwich instead.

With an internal date now set and LTE a sure bet
Those that get Tim Cook’s new pet will be filled with green eyed regret.

But wait you cry for what date can you buy?
This the panda did shall share...
Fore on the date Bruce Wayne’s true father did die; you shall in fact be able to buy in stores of red and black.

But those who pay other masters don’t fret, over exclusive deals and bets
For in many other favors (flavors?) you will get your treat
be they GSM or wimax radios inside, the nexus brand will ride world wide
the exciting, and mind blowing conclusion to come....later...

But as he lays in the corner with a Beer and a boner the Panda said with a sigh...
Be it a Droid or Nexus branded new toy, with dual cores “hd” screens, fancy new widgets and more....
The one with the keyboard is what I enjoy”
So, a dual-core ICS device with LTE and an HD screen will hit Verizon on November 3. Is it the "Nexus brand that will ride world wide"? Who knows. But an LTE device with ICS is good enough for me.

Keyboard is probably not accurate as it pertains to Verizon. VZ probably doesn't have info on other carriers. So it's inaccurate to him.

Public Service Announcement:

Smiley faces really help lighten tone. In the future, I would ask you and everyone else to use them in order to alleviate any tendency we, your readers, may mistakenly have that would cause us to take this as a strident tone. In fact, I've deleted several posts that hit me wrong, for this very reason.

Thank you.

Sure thing, Steve.

If you're on Verizon, you'll be very happy on October 11.

I think we ticked off VZ.

VZ, I for one believe that Verizon will come out with the Prime on November 3. But some of us, like CK and others, are very skeptical, and I have to say that they have every right to be so.

Many of us haven't been extremely happy with Verizon for passing up on the Nexus devices in the past and then on SGSII. With the high prices we're paying in comparison to others, we expect top-notch phones.

If Verizon comes through in the way you say, my faith in Verizon will be 100% restored. And I'm sure it will.

I really appreciate your response.

My experience with Verizon:

1) I am on the high side of great experiences. They've always bent over backwards to make me happy. I'm, in fact, a VZW, fanboi.
2) I love vz.

However, I was just saying that sometimes they don't always follow our time tables. That said, I do appreciate your words of encouragement.

You, VZ_Wired guy, do indeed rock.

well i'm not quiete sure if it will come to verizon exclusively on November 3rd yet, but to be honest i don't really care about that...

im from germany and therefore i'm more interested in the european release date...

so what do you think? will the Nexus Prime hit Europe on November 3rd, too?

LTE is already avaiable in big parts in Europe and our carriers still update to LTE more and more...

furthermore the Nexus Prime is rumoured to be CDMA and GSM, so it would be possible to be offered to Verizon Wireless and the rest of the world on November 3rd and to the other US-Carriers later on...

right now every rumour about the release date is only for the US...

I really appreciate vz_wired is here. He (or she?) kind of feels like Yodadroid on Bionic forum before. Everyone including me doubted his credibility at first, but we all know how things turned out in the end. Hope vz_wired is messenger of good accurate news on Verizon Prime here.

I just want to say i am calling BS on the whole tablet docking thing based on the picture released last night. I am not saying it isn't going to happen. But if you look at the picture, the "tablet" area is exactly following the curve of the metal backing. Observe....

By the way epic thread! I have been following since day one....if you combined this with the facinate forum of old, then the stratosphere, then this, which has basically been speculation for a awesome samsung phone coming to VZ then the thread would be rediculous!

Although I believe Verizon will get the Samsung Prime sometime, I do not think it will be an exclusive and to think so is just crazy. Google has always relased it for t-mobile first and that probably won't change with this one. I do believe however that every network will get it sooner than the last nexus device.

VZW peeps are going to be disappointed October 11th lol

Couple things and guys I know I've already said this before but this gentleman may not have saw it.

Numero uno those are unsubstantiated rumors.

Number 2, MY biggest issue is with the model number. This unannounced Verizon phone is model i515 and if you recall the Charge is the i510. In my opinion that says a lot. To me it says we are looking at the Charge 2 (or whatever name it drops under)

I would feel much better with a i6xx or i7xx or even an i550 designation. Like I said though I could be totally off base but something doesn't sit right with this whole thing.

The scenario that makes perfect sense to me is the Nexus aka i9250 goes to the other carriers and we will get something similiar to the Charge but dual core and with more RAM. I hope I'm wrong.......

vz_wired...PM me, I'll book you a flight to Tampa, take you to Bern's Steakhouse and perhaps a trip to the infamous Mons Venus if that interests you. All you need to do is bring along a VZW Prime for me check out for a day or two! :-)

Thanks for slapping us when we need it.

No one here thinks Prime will be verizon exclusive. It's the first Nexus kind of device coming to verizon. Other carriers like AT&T, T-mobile will get it (GT-I9250) after verizon.

no-they-will-not!
This what you're talking about is about month old thesis, which is just obsolete and out-of-date.

@vz_wired

I hope we've done a respectable job not pestering you too badly for info. I am going to ask a single question and I fully understand if you decline to answer. Not asking for hardware spec verification to avoid pushing my luck. Instead, wtf is the name of this thing anyway:

1.) Samsung Nexus Prime
2.) Samsung Prime (no Nexus identifier)
3.) Samsung Droid Prime
4.) Other

I would feel much better with a i6xx or i7xx or even an i550 designation. Like I said though I could be totally off base but something doesn't sit right with this whole thing.

The scenario that makes perfect sense to me is the Nexus aka i9250 goes to the other carriers and we will get something similiar to the Charge but dual core and with more RAM. I hope I'm wrong.......
I don't think the i515 will be Charge-like at all.

The Samsung Fascniate was SCH-i500. The charge (510) is nothing like the Fascinate. I think they're just model numbers on a list, and whatever is new gets the next one. Like naming hurricanes.

VZW will NOT disappoint us on the 11th. I believe that. I don't see any benefit of debating whether or not vz_wired is genuine in his/her encouragement or not. I'd like to nip any potential argument over what we don't know, in the bud. Moving on.....

This made me laugh while I wait for October 11th. All my friends that are iPhone lovers were waiting for the iPhone 5 on Tuesday. They had the Jergens and Kleenex all ready. Denied!

Easy, there, Jungle Cat. No one can seriously believe that the third Nexus will be on Verizon and no one else would ever get it. That would be stupid on Samsung and Google's part.

I bet Verizon's "exclusive" will last a month or two.

Many of us haven't been extremely happy with Verizon for passing up on the Nexus devices in the past and then on SGSII. With the high prices we're paying in comparison to others, we expect top-notch phones.

If Verizon comes through in the way you say, my faith in Verizon will be 100% restored. And I'm sure it will.
Agree HanSolo...

I'd also like to say to VZ_wired to please NOT take it personal that we have doubts. You must understand a lot of us have been around for a long time (too long actually) and have seen this VERY SAME scenario played out hundreds of times before. So do not take it as a personal attack. It's just that you really are not saying anything that anyone with a new account can say.

You have no track record here. If this pans out and you are right those of us who had doubts will be the first to back you up on the next go around
Heck we will start entire threads and quote you as the source All of todays credible sources have gone through the same gauntlet.

So understand credibility is earned on these forums and right now you have none. Just know that is PERFECTLY fine. I appreciate you popping in and participating regardless.

The funniest comment about NP appearance in the teaser I ever red:

"Adorable. This one is really curved.
But what the f*ck is that three dots on right side." [from xda]

No, I just think Verizon won't get it first or exclusive. Just with the same rules as another carriers.

Who knows, maybe SCH-i515 is just normal NP, but with phisical keyboard, which would be some kind of exclisive for Verizon, which comes to us few months later?

If it's not the Nexus Prime, it will almost definitely have the Samsung brand on it. They wouldn't let it get out without it, especially since Apple just dropped the ball. My hopes (and prayers) go for Nexus Prime, but if not, the Samsung Droid Prime is the most probable.

Using your example I would be fine with a i520 designation.

Maybe this phone is not even the i515. There are so many scenarios in play right now.

Am I the only one who wouldn't be surprised if it's called the Nexus S2? I prefer the prime name, and to be honest I don't care what they call it as long as the first part is Nexus.

Now do I get the Prime now (been waiting to upgrade OG since August anyway) or wait for the Note in 1Q12?
