    You vastly underestimate the importance of retaining or even gaining a slight market share by preempting an iPhone launch. This isn't about abandoned stores on launch day for the iPhone. Of course there will always be lines, but those folks also probably were in line a year ago for the iPhone 4. You're thinking in vague generalities. If the iPhone launch sales slide by a few %, that's a win, and you're NOT going to see that level of detail in the mass hysteria because those are the crazies that probably have 2 of everything with an apple on it in their homes.

    So what does this all mean? Armed Forces Day must mean Veteran's Day - 11/11/11. Sounds like a plausible release day to me.

    I thought we were looking at 11/3. Then again, now that I look, the 3rd is a Monday. 11th is a Tues though. Shouldn't we be aiming for a Thurs?

    This is an old render and I don't think it is very accurate. It has the capacitive buttons which the Prime should not have and the Prime is supposedly going to have a metal body. Looks good though.

    Veteran's Day is Friday November 11th. Not sure how to interpret that poem.

    someone over at HoFo just made an interesting point. the guy who was able to play with the D4/Maserati a little said that the D4 might take the Droid HD name, and not the Spyder. so, this entry in the CelleBrite could signal the D4, and not the Spyder/Droid RAZR/?? This would also make some sense given that the model number in CelleBrite is listed as XT912, when the Spyder is supposedly the XT910.

    this doesn't have a whole lot to do with the Nexus Prime, other than to give an explanation as to how these pics may not be a complete hoax...

    I was confusing my months. So the 3rd sounds more reasonable, right?

    I'm with you on this. Verification or fake? Too tough to call. I THINK the Vigor was actually verified as the Vigor recently but as fast as the info is moving, I may be all wet.

    Go Hawks.

    They have accessories for the "Vigor" on their site. ....and I read an article today that referred to OUR PRIME as "mythical ".....I was not amused.....

    I do LOVE the render of the device from Slashgear. Icons, clock and Wallpaper look awesome together. Very nice looking handset.

    Manufacturers should hire these companies to render them some prototypes . I love the fit and finish on this thing.
