    I didn't know what to think of this spot when it was first released, but now knowing about the Prime...do you think they will announce it in Europe?

    Wow, I didn't know this forum existed until just now! Thanks Magdelaine!

    I've been getting skewered in the Bionic forum for mentioning the Prime in their presence. :rolleyes:


    EDIT:

    Han, it's me, Han. From the future.

    You're an idiot. It's almost December on my side, and no word yet.

    Get the Bionic and save us 3 months of torture!!

    I saw that too. It's legitimate topic but it's on Bionic forum anyway, so it's expected. I admire your courage to do so over there.

    I honestly think Sammy will make the or already have made the successor to the Nexus line, but I believe that leak is FAKE. The word Nexus Prime was so forcefully used. Oct is almost here and Google will show off IC and hopefully the phone as well.

    I have a feeling it'll be later then Oct. It could be but if we don't see heavier leaks of images and other rumors/info of the Prime next month which is a month away from Oct, then I think it'll be out in Nov-Dec. That's about the same timing of the first Nexus and Nexus S. Then again, Google's yearly new UI and other things are revealed around Oct so yea, it could be Oct. Not to much longer of a wait..

    I can't wait to see the phone, but one thing that will make me very happy behind the announcement is having it launch on every carrier that already carries a Nexus phone and Verizon. Even if it's a week apart but all in the same month I could dig it. It would only be proper and smart to compete with other phones that are on several carriers. They messed up sale wise with the first one and then late to other carriers with the last one. What will they do with the Prime III?

    The specs I've seen talk about the screen being a Super AMOLED PenTile Matrix display. WTF is that? I was hoping to stay away from PenTile.

    Yeah, but I think I read somewhere that PenTile gets less and less crappy the higher the resolution. But not sure.

    SAMOLED screens have a great reputation. I highly doubt that they're going to trash it with a crappy display all of a sudden. I think Moto went the cheap route.

    I don't think pentile matrix would be much issue at HD resolution. It still has all the good qualities of SAMOLED (high contrast, rich color, viewing angle, etc).

    Rumor from P3droid's sources say to expect the phone between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Check his twitter feed for more specific info. Also said that VZW will be carrying it.

    The way I see it. I can hold onto my DX until Christmas. I've 13.5 months. Another 4 months won't kill me. For me, it's between the Vigor and the Prime. I must confess, I love sense. On the hand, I love custom Mods. What to do? What to do?

    I'm still on the OG Droid. I was going to move the bionic when it comes out in a few weeks. But if the prime is really going to release on verizon i would blow my brains out if I didn't wait another few weeks for this phone...knowing it will for sure be unlocked with the latest OS.

    I'm in for the prime...better be on VZW!

    Same here. I was a pre-order adopter of the Incredible so all those folks are coming due around Dec, unless they early upgraded. I've been saving that last NE2 for something worthy, and my focus is now on the Prime since the SGSII got passed over. Better have LTE, though.

    Agreed. My preorder Inc is still going strong thanks to CM7. I've been waiting patiently for LTE phones to mature a little and at this point I will not consider a phone unless it has LTE.

    Im intrigued by the Vigor. But with how slow updates have been on the Inc I really want a pure android (nexus) phone.

    This will be my next phone if it comes out for verizon. Otherwise I'll probably wait for something else.

    I know this is a shopped up concept of the Galaxy S III, but it's a good idea of a phone without physical buttons. If the Prime looks anything like this, I'll be in cell phone nirvana:
