    I think that's a countdown to their cute little scavenger hunt. (It's in the Bionic forum.)

    If I recall correctly, GT-I9220 was in the leaked samsung roadmap list a few weeks ago. It has 1.4Ghz dual core, 4.3" HD display but without LTE. So I think it may end up being non LTE Nexus Prime for other carriers like AT&T, T-mobile while GT-I9250 is CDMA/LTE one for Verizon. Or it may be another unknown super-phone from Sammy. Hopefully they will give us some clue at IFA Berlin.

    That might be how you spell it if you are one of those weird French that live on the Eastern side of the country, not here out west. And hey we've had internet for as long as I can remember, just its been slow as crap until recently haha. And before you ask I don't live in an Igloo.

    Im pissed my carrier Telus didn't get the SGS2 either but the carrier Bell who uses the exact same towers did. But then I found out Telus is getting the Hercules which is the SGS2 under a different name from the sounds of it.

    Now I just really want to try and dig and find out if I should get the Samsung Hercules or if the Prime will be released on Telus. Someone told me it would but I haven't found any articles or talk confirming it and I really want to get rid of my old BB Storm.

    I think this Droid (or Nexus) Prime is coming to Verizon first exclusively. We don't even know yet if and when other US carriers will get it, let alone Canadians. If you are upgrading from a BB, SGS2 will be a massive upgrade with incredible spec. I saw the leaked T-mobile SGS2 (Hercules) a few weeks ago that your Telus is also supposed to get. The t-mobile SGS2 announced yesterday looks like the same one.

    Yea same one as tmobile is getting. Anything is an upgrade over my current BB haha. Yea I will see when the hercules comes out if there's any update on prime coming up here. Someone mentioned it to me it may come so that's why I was wondering.

    I look forward to the day that this beautiful handset comes to my front door. The time is almost here when I finally get to own a true Google phone. I've waited for what seems like years for this time to come.

    I haven't been this excited for a phone since news broke about the Motorola Droid. The Prime will EASILY last me 2 years. I'm sitting right here until it arrives. In my opinion there is nothing like owning a Nexus..It's going to be a fine piece of hardware.

    I have to admit that I'd like more info on this too. I haven't been this enthusiastic about a phone since the Incredible days.

    Dude I'm going to be here no matter what. This will be my next purchase for sure. This is EVERYTHING I want in a handset. Specs will be there so I'm not even concerned about something "better" coming out. Nothing beats a Nexus plain and simple :) they are simply the finest android phones ever developed...well in my humble opinion :)

    Yes sir!! No longer there though. That place is the worst forum I have ever belonged to.

    Cory's Streater is the worst mod I have EVER come across in all my years on forums. I don't ever have anything bad to say about people but that guy doesn't have all the dots on his dice. I swear to god, during evolution his ancestors were in the control group.

    Worst experience ever.

    LOL!

    I was banned from there for "fighting" even though I wasn't combative at all.

    I can't even visit the stupid site without spoofing my IP.

    Damn Android Central. Frakking Nazis.

    It's so easy to want to jump to the Bionic because it's relatively beast compared to current VZW phones, but then I will be left wanting for more when the prime comes out. Now, I may be wrong about this, but I think that phones are reaching that point in which speed increases from model to model will slow down in favor of better battery life. I'm not saying that the Nexus will be the last speed increase, but I'm just saying that people can be relatively pleased with their phone speed and features for quite some time rather than wanting the next fastest thing within six months.

    Now that I know I'm upgradeable in January I'm salivating over this phone.

    True: do we really NEED quad-core 2GHz phones? I mean, it's a PHONE! In fact, dual-core 1.5GHz is pushing it as far as need goes... once you get to real time processing, there's really no reason to go any faster. But some people will buy the quad-cores just to say they have it, even though it'll take a monster 2500MaH battery to run it. And a BIG chassis to put it in. I'd much prefer the Galaxy Skin. IF it ever comes out :)

    hahahahahahahha......I feel you.

    I was banned for giving people the heads up in the Bionic thread to check out the D3 and its gps issue since they will both run the same gps/ti omap package. It was called trolling. I swear to god that's a true story LOL

    We do have a great forum, here. I'll give you the inside scoop on moderator stuff. We are very hesitant to ban anyone, which is why we have a point system. We try to warn people, over and over and over and over. In order to get yourself banned here, you have to do something really bad or you have to be an out and out spammer or spam bot.

    Anyhoo... I'm very glad to see you here CK and everyone else, for that matter. I do have one request. Can we keep this thread more on the topic of the Nexus Prime? I'd appreciate it. Thanks for listening, caring and making this place fun to be. :D

    Steven

    Sure thing. No joke about the following.... I got chills when I read your "P R I M E". I guess I'm a phone-a-holic. :p Sad, huh?
