    Thanks for clearing that up! I just wish we had something concrete and new.

    Well, at least we're in October, everybody! I can't believe we've made it this far without at least a couple of flaming, bannable rants. :p

    Speaking of rants, the folks here are far more and better behaved than those of us who were involved in the epoch Incredible thread. Just sayin'. :p

    Totally. But, I would more appreciate the gesture of providing us with a stock device. It's symbolic I guess. Don't get me wrong, I don't believe for a fraction of a second that Verizon would have some altruistic motive for doing so. I just feel like it would be a good way for Verizon to say that they are listening to a small, but important group of customers.

    If companies listened to a small but important group of customers, I'd still be able to buy Mickey Mouse bars at the grocery store. :p

    this is Verizon we are talking about. Awesome Android phones are not synonomous with them. We get table scraps while the other carriers enjoy 4 course meals.

    I'll never feel sorry for the other carriers lol. They already are loaded with TONS of stellar Android hardware. If your prediction is right we will only have 1 great one :) No feeling sorry

    I always forget though. We have the iPhone I shouldn't complain :p

    After getting scraps for the last two years and finally being shown the buffet known as "Prime", I'm afraid we won't know what to do with ourselves...

    If this thing turns out to be everything we hoped for and then some, what the heck will we complain about then? :p

    It means Paul is dead. Or the walrus was Paul. Or Paul is a dead walrus.
    Yeah it is. Besides, hopping up a Honda is more fun than a Vette, right?
    Good points all.

    Lol. Loving the dedication. Though the weekend has been pretty dead. I feel like next week and the Monday after will be nuts in here.

    CTIA 10/11 will be held not so far from where I live in North county of San Diego. I was thinking of attending it to see Nexus Prime myself, but just figured that admission ticket for public is over 1000 dollars! I will just watch it over online video news.

    The exhibit pass starts at $75. That should get you in right? Although, if you're about to drop a few hundred on a phone, tacking on another 75 bucks might be a bit much.

    That's exhibits pass for member (85 for non member). I was looking at partner events that needs expensive super pass. Not sure if I can get into that Samsung/Google event with only exhibit pass. If so, that's great!

    Too bad you can't pay a few bucks just to go to one event. Hahaha.

    Someone on the other forum said it requires expensive super pass to attend that Google/Samsung event. So I'm not sure. If I can get there with cheap exhibition pass, then I will.

    this can't be the nexus prime... u can cleary see Samsung's Touch Wiz-UI and the prime will have stock android ICS without any launcher/UI/...

    also omap 4460 seems a bit unlikely... as we all know there are some problems with the new OMAP 4-Soc... the new exynos 4212-soc seems more likely

    Agreed. Losers are coming out of the woodwork with fake pics while they still can, before the 11th.

    Edit: I guess I mean that I hope this guy is a fake loser. He's saying it will be bloated and Touchwizzed.

    I hope that's not true. :thinking:
