    I've fallen in love with that artists rendering (on SlashGear). Curved glass and all. That is a fine looking piece of equipment right there emmhmm

    Not sure on this one. There will certainly be some pressure for a leak. I want to see something, but the excitement is sort of being built on no images or anything.

    You call it borrow, but in the corporate world its called the theft of intellectual property...it happens but if you can't develop your own product in the end you will fail. Apple is slowly loosing market share and as a result they feel the need to borrow as you call it technologies in software and hardware development from others to stay relevent.

    Well the 11th will shed some light on this matter.
    I believe we will see something from the FCC before the 11th.

    At any pace, If we do not hear about the Prime before Oct. 20th it will be dead in the water for November.

    I would not count out the Samsung Galaxy S2-HD for Verizon at this point. It is very possible the SGSII-HD is coming.....

    Android FTW and I'm guessing no blurry pic. Even if im wrong on this it doesnt matter. I'm not doing squat until after Oct 11. Hopefully the decision will be easy at that point.

    I have been trying to stay away from watching and counting down the days. I drove myself nuts with the first Incredible or Nexus One coming to Verizon talking and reading for a couple months about the launch and arrival.

    Now that we are about a week away from an announcement I am stoked!!!

    Can't wait to see my next phone! I will pre order ASAP!

    Could this be the leak we are waiting for...or is P3 referring to something else like HTC, Moto or iPhone release date?

    “P3Droid: October 6th, will be a good day. A very good day.”

    Any thoughts on this? I did not see it mentioned above.

    I assumed he was hinting at HTC Vigor...just because of the timing. I doubt p3**droid** would be excited about the new/old fruit. At least I hope he wouldn't be. lol
  10. I agree...............this would be more like BIG RED :(:([/QUOTE]

    No verizon would release the prime and then a few weeks later launch the s2 hd and piss off many customers lol
  11. I was thinking the same thing but I guess we will find out this thursday. I hope he wasn't talking about the stratosphere. Then again I don't think someone like him would really think that highly of a midrange slider.

    FWIW my sister texted me this morning and said that she has heard that the Prime will NOT be Droid branded and that it has a

    Hey everyone. I've been stalking this thread for a while, looking to replace my Incredible.

    I just have to say, I would be surprised if Google would allow the very first ICS phone to appear with a custom UI. It wouldn't make a lick of Sense! (sorry, I've always wanted to do that!) That said, it IS Verizon. I think even Verizon has moments of clarity and how could they NOT hear all the rants? I think this phone is meant to give Verizon some "street cred" for us Android geeks. Ofcourse, the next year will be filled with usual bloatware but this phone will give them the ablitity to go "look, we get it!" At least for a little while.

    So I asked her to clarify things, and she says that someone was excited because the Prime wouldn't have Touchwiz. My sister said "Why not, that sucks" (she's an iPhone freak and loves how Touchwiz is more iPhone-like than other UIs), and the person told her it wouldn't have any UI, just basic stock. My sister thinks that's boring, while we, of course, think it's awesome.

    She doesn't know anything else. She's the type of person that even if someone told her what processor it was running, she wouldn't remember what they said. She's not into tech stuff.

    Edit:
    I forgot to include that as far as the DROID brand, she says that she's hearing it will not be a Droid phone (which she also thinks "sucks"), but that it could get slapped on at the last moment. But she doubts it.

    It's a Nexus device. It had BETTER be stock. I prefer the look and feel of stock android over any overlay.

    Stock may be "boring" to some. But at this point, what does TouchWiz, Sense, Blur, and all of the other UI enhancements add that Android hasn't already implemented?
