... or they might announce the date when they might announce the announcement for the Prime...

Nothing like announcement to the third power to keep things confusing here, huh?

I'm with CK on this. No one knows anything at this point and until the specs are released and we can officially put this to bed, I'm applying logic to the situation and that's what logic suggests...

but in my view vz_wired could do us a favor and release some new info (maybe specs?) of the NP on Tuesday, we all have waited for tuesday so long and it' be kinda unfair if all of this was senseless, especially because we have to wait until a not-yet-announced date (again... ~.~)

edit: oh and (maybe i forgot but) did vz_wired (or some of those twitter-guys) say something about the GSMArena leaked specs?

I respectfully disagree. There ARE people who know. And there are TONS of specs out here. People in the know have already stated that some of the specs over there are right, and some of the specs over here are wrong.

That's what makes this thread so agonizingly exciting: trying to make all the pieces fit and see how close we can get to the real deal!

TI is going to use TSMC for their 28 nm process chips
QC is going to use TSMC for their 28 nm process chips
Nvidia is going to use TSMC for their 28 nm process chips
Samsung is going to use....drumroll....samsung for their 32nm chips (4212)

So it wouldn't be out of this world, if in the middle of hearing all these problems with the 28nm process, if we see a 32nm chip come from Samsung. No matter which chip it is, Software will make or break the device. My thunderbolt has pretty good specs, but I would rather use my OG droid for everything other than FFC because it just works. That is where the iPhone wins...they just work.

If the iP4s was announced with a bigger screen and LTE -- I'd probably be buying it. Instead, apple shuffled some chips around, and pulled a Microsoft...they bought Siri and rolled it into their OS and called it innovation. So right now my chips are on the NP.

Verizon is mandatory because they are the only carrier that seems to give a **** about the military, as their coverage has been far greater than anyone else's. Nothing like stepping off a 20+ hour flight from the middle east to watch everyone with Verizon whip out their cellphones and make contact with their families while you curse at your horrid reception. That and their 4G strategy in the 700mHz range has the best potential for building penetration....

And Tuesday is the next day the FCC will likely work, as Monday is Columbus day. So that and it being the originally scheduled date, I wouldn't be surprised to see something pop on the EAS either...

I think that's an excellent question.

While some may decry the period of mourning, it's important to note that the tech companies, like this forum, are made of people - who are more often than not personal friends, fierce competition notwithstanding. After all, birds of a feather do flock together.

For those who may have any cynicism that the delay is just corporate posturing, this may prove insightful -

Jobs Offered Google CEO Advice, Says Larry Page - Search Engines - News & Reviews - eWeek.com

But seriously - what could come of CTIA of material interest to us?

Personally, I'm numb at the thought of anything.

Even those not waiting on the Prime are waiting on ICS, so - you know.

I POTENTIALLY agree with you Chief, but leaks are leaks. Some are true and some are not. The degree of secrecy here makes me think that there enough red herrings to feed an army. Sure there are people who THINK they know the final specs, but unless they eat at a table with Google or Samsung execs, it's just hard to say. Fundamentally I agree with you though...Just sayin' there's a chance!

What if tuesday they still announce the prime and just make it for more of a shocker and suspense? I mean yes it won't be the unpacked event but what if somehow they build off of the suspense and announce it then or maybe just the verizon version? Most likely won't happen but I think doing it this way would get a lot of press time.

How do you know that is the nexus and not the new sgs3? I mean it makes more sense it being the sgs3 since that will be sammy's real super phone just like the sgs2 was. Not to mention it makes sense they would unveil the new sgs3 then since the exynos chips rumored are said to start showing up in phones around that time.

There is always a chance that our Verizon point of contact is blowing smoke up our stacks... but I don't think they are. They seem very sincere in their efforts to clear things up for us, while still protecting their own job/interests.

I don't even have dreams that good, Raider. But it sure would be an out-of-the-box way to do it!

That's what I was thinking it would really be a different way to do it. Honestly I don't see what the big deal is just show it off like apple does and then have preorders a few days or week later. No need to have a big thing for it just get the phones into people's hands.

SGS3 is too far away to announce at CTIA. SGS3 will probably be sporting some other new fangled super charged, liquid cooled proccessor .

I'll be waiting on the Galaxy Skin, which will be MY PHONE after the phone after the Galaxy-Nexus-Prime. Maybe sporting a super-thin transparent battery and solar-charging screen! WHOOT

The Skin:

Transparent battery:

And the solar-charging screen:

http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011/03/solar-screens-may-make-phone-chargers-obsolete/


Add all that together and you have would could be close to the "ultimate" phone

I wouldn't worry about it. Those posters probably needed reported anyhow, knowing this lot like we do.

I can tell you first hand where I work and barely get a 3G signal inside their 4G building penetration is even worse. I was counting on the 700mHz helping in that regard too.

You can't be serious my friend. A successor of a great phone in the same year? They will announce that next year like they always do. They'll have a quadcore then. And breakthrough technology of some sort and plus HD screen.

I think its likely we get something this week. Anything. I mean, all jokes aside, they wouldn't want another bionic to happen, right? Not saying an announcement, but something a bit more concrete.

Chief,
They still may release ICS at the event.
And there maybe some chatter about a new tablet as well.

Sounds reasonable to me. Is it sad that I had no idea Columbus Day was Monday until it was mentioned in this thread?

Hmmmm....................if they did indeed hold off announcing the Prime due to SJ's death then i can not see how we will get any kind of announcement this week considering SJ's funeral will be Friday.

Looks like we wait until next week for the announcement...........

it is in january so that would be next year. not to mention just because they announce it doesn't mean it has to be available then. Clearly you must not be paying attention to how many phones sammy comes out with.

Good thought about ICS. I could use that info, although tablet news wouldn't do a thing for me...

Why do you think Verizon would announce it instead of Samsung. I mean Google might not announce it, since they could still break ICS to us, but it seems like samsung would be most likely to announce NP over Verizon.

Also how would Google announce and show off ICS without a device to display it? Bc I've heard a few people saying Google would show ICS this week and Verizon would follow up later with the NP.

Sorry if I'm not making any sense.

Edit: I guess Google could show and announce ICS on a tablet if not the NP

he meant verizon announce when it would be available to buy. I mean verizon does that for all the phones( minus the iphone) the manufacturers rarely announce the phones usually verizon is always there.

Thanks for the clarification. IMO I don't think Samsung would send out invites and then cancel only to have Verizon announce it later. I mean sure after Samsung announces it Verizon will give a release date and such. Plus Samsung said they would reschedule...

I agree unless there is 2 versions of the phone and then verizon announce theirs early and then at the other event samsung announce the gsm version for the other carriers? Most likely we won't see anything but we can hope anyway lol.

When this thread was on its first few pages I said that Samsung/Google would not announce the new flag ship phone for Verizon. It would be down right wrong if it was going to be an exclusive phone for Verizon.
Verizon is in charge , they will make the announcement.
^^^ JUST A GOOD LOGIC REASON^^^^

Please remember that according to our inside sources, 11/3 is now solid. They said that they were given a week's window on either side of that date, but regardless of the unboxing delay, they cemented 11/3 as the date.

Very true I never even thought about it this way. If it is a verizon exclusive for a month or so it would make sense that verizon announce it. I mean they could always use a slide show or the nexus s to show off ics. In the past did they always have an event and show off the new os on an unreleased device? I am just curious becuase I cannot remember. Also what IF samsung and google was going to annouce it tues and verizon decided they want to announce it and that had part of the reason they cancelled the event? I know verizon has a lot of pull but wondering if that had anything to do with it.
