    You're ninja'd. But there is no way this is releasing as the Nexus Prime, and because of a leaked BestBuy ad? We're really stretching it here.

    In fact, the only TWO offical releases both call this device the Galaxy Nexus. Both in Verizon's announcement and the Google page listing the LTE specs.

    That is my first thought as well, but the possibility excites me. It's a much better name than Galaxy Nexus.

    im just saying,

    for all those renting...

    correct me if im wrong, if you drop and break the phone before the nexus comes out, then you cant return it (?) and so you will be stuck with the broken phone unless you have insurance and then you have to pay for a replacement and then try to return it?


    just something to think about

    True, but again that's the same scenerio for any phone, regardless if you are renting or not. Either pay for the insurance, or assume the risk.

    Note that I don't support renting, unless its to honestly give the other handsets a chance.

    Pretty sure that if you have to use the insurance it's a done deal because you may get a refurbished phone as a replacement...so you break it (or ding it or scratch it or anything)...you bought it

    Yeah. If it's true I figure it could be good news. Not sure how all this works, but would guess that such late updates could be performed at POS if the BF sales are really wanted by the right peeps within VZW.

    I still have a feeling though that they are worried about getting the quota of beans from Droid RAZR sales they had planned and that is driving this launch time frame more than anything else as Hans sister kinda alluded to.

    Why do people care so much about the camera being 5mp. You only need 8mp if you want to blow your pictures up to 8x10. Who on earth takes portrait photos of their family with a cell phone and blows it up to 8x10. My DX drives me nuts b/c it defaults to 8mp and I have to change the settings back to 3mp everytime I shoot snapshots with my phone.

    i have been carrying my rental around in a microfiber bag made for sunglasses just to avoid any tiny scratch or ding. i wish i had the commitment to make sure the phones i actually keep stayed this pristine. :p

    Yes you did forget to do something. Watch Star Wars, starting with the oldest (episode IV). :D

    I even offered to buy you dinner just to watch the first episode. ;)
