    As mentioned, everything is just rumor-mill. However, all indications are that this phone will NOT be coming to Sprint.

    I don't think its debatable that there are two versions of the phone.
    There is a CDMA/LTE version going to Verizon.
    There is a GSM/HSPA+ version that would be compatible with ATT/Tmobile/Global

    There has never been mention of a CDMA/WiMax version, so Sprint is going to be left out. I'd say 99.9% certainty.

    That's the way I remember it as well. Although so much seems to run together, I thought we had confirmed the battery was at least 2050mh?

    I don't think you are going to see a GSM/LTE device for a while. I honestly don't know if there are any shipping currently, but at least for the US, the only impetus will be when AT&T finally gets off it's arse and rolls LTE out quicker.

    No need, we saw the MAP list.
    I know we already talked about it, but I wouldn't put my faith in that list, simply because I seriously doubt Verizon would release two directly competing 4G phones (Nexus and Rezound/Vigor) on the same day. It's bad business.
    Not to mention such things are easy to fake.

    Here's the link, just in case anyone hasn't seen it yet

    Looks like it, with some extra conjecture. So basically nothing new. We'll all have to wait a few more days for the announcement.

    I don't take much stock in some poem.

    What he meant, was that there were other devices coming out with ICS available on all carriers. It won't however, be a Nexus Prime (or Galaxy Nexus).

    Good business is making your customers happy IMO. Haven't seen much of that from Big Red lately.

    I'll agree, the Samsung Galaxy S phones were not great. Poor radio performance, average call quality, beyond bad aweful GPS performance, etc.

    However, you should be looking at reviews for the SGSII, rather than the SGS. All indications are that it is a decent performer that has fixed many of the issues that plagued the SGS line.

    I think we have gone over this before, but as I understand it, the update in this link is the "accepted" rumored specs for now.

    Samsung Galaxy Nexus specs leak, headed to Verizon as an exclusive? (updated) -- Engadget

    Good business is making money, both for near term and long term viability. Sorry, but can't sugercoat it or get any plainer than that.

    Verizon would make many customers happy by giving everyone free smartphones and service. They'd also be out of business.

    In case you missed it. This video is hilarious. They poke fun at the poems and all the people involved. Android Forums gets a nice shout out too.

    Enjoy

    That's pretty funny, but strangely, I feel I should be defensive. :D

    Well, I am generally more of an email/texter, but I do use my cell as my primary home phone and for work as well. I'm really hoping the NP is at least as good SGS2 which I've heard is great.

    Speaking of poems, is anyone else amused by the fact that tfleming actually has less followers than he did this morning? ;)
