    Crap ~ seems pretty legit! Why does Verizon have to ruin a good thing with their bloat. If you read some of the guys comments it said that Verizon is putting the bloat on there and it will have touch wiz, so def. not pure Nexus device. Guess I will just have to root then....

    yeah hopefully they will announce the prime on 11th october... i don't know how much longer i can wait without any official info...

    ouuh and btw today (in germany its finally the 02. october) its my birthday :)

    and i'll get a special gift from my parents:

    the nexus prime when it's finally arrive here in germany :)

    so some concrete data would be nice, so that i'd know how long i have to wait for my present :D



    edit: his new post

    "There is touchwiz on it because Verizon's version of it will have it. It will also receive bloat before release. There are no buttons on it because Android 4.0 doesn't use them.

    There was an app list that was released a few days ago that had no bloat on it. That might or might not be an accurate list, but I can assure you that bloat will be added before release. It will also have Touchwiz.

    My impression is that Verizon's version of the Prime is more like a Galaxy S II than anything else, but it's super fast and has an awesome display." (source)

    edit2: ps: i hope the bezel on the top and on the bottom will be equal... the picture he uploaded has a bigger bezel at the top... but for gaming equal bezels are way better (my impression)

    I don't know. I'm torn about this. I definitely don't want to see it released with TouchWiz. The bloatware isn't all that big of a deal, but I would REALLY at least like to see this release with stock ICS. I don't know how likely that's looking now.:eek:

    I don't know about this. He says he snapped a picture of it "this morning" but the clock says 7pm!

    Also, I saved the picture to my computer and zoomed in, and the space between the bottom icons is a different shade of black than the rest of the screen.

    I'm actually hoping this is totally fake. I like the size of it, but Touchwiz and bloat are not good news.

    Great work, Han! Now that you mention all of this, it is a pretty sh*tty photoshop at the bottom.

    Wow, a lot of things happened in just last 4 hours while I was outside. I immediately noticed that picture was just Sprint SGS2 modified in photo software. It's amazing that some folks like to make up this kind of fakes so easy to debunk.

    As for the AP stuff, I like your optimism on the exynos 4212 in Prime. But I'm not holding my breath on it. It will just start sampling to manufacturers in Q4. Of course Sammy probably had early access to their chip samples, so it's possible though. But I won't be disappointed by 1.5Ghz OMAP4 and its shortage is only for tablets.

    Guys I took a quick pic of the Prime for everyone. I was in a gun shop today when I saw this guy playing on this unrecognizable phone. I went up to him and asked "what kind of phone do you have?"

    He quickly shoved it in his pocket and told me to leave him alone. I told him I was a gadget freak and was just curious what kind of phone he was using because I've never seen it before. He looked around pulled his cap real low and said "follow me."

    He led me to the back of the store and told the clerk to "give us some privacy please."

    He told me he needed to pat me down and check for any kind of audio recording device. I was caught off guard and said "What?" He got defensive and said "No pat down no see." I complied.

    He told me that I would only be able to get one pic and not handle it. I told him that I wanted to see the UI and "about" screen as well. I was met with a stern "No. One picture and that's it" So at the risk of blowing any chance I had of even seeing the phone and sharing it with you all I decided to agree. At the back of the gun shop there are various Moose Heads, Elk etc etc you know taxidermy stuff. There was this nice rabbit skin so I asked if I could set up the phone and make it look "nice" He looked at me like I was weird and told me "Whatever man, just hurry up and take the picture."

    He then unpocketed the beauty and to my surprise it wasn't an entirely different looking phone from the Nexus S BUT it did have a huge screen. I will go so far as to say it is probably the reported size of 4.65". It looked VERY large. So I am going to say it is at least 4.65"

    Again I didn't get to unlock the phone or jump into it at all. I set up the phone snapped the shot and he snatched the phone up and was gone.

    I watched him quickly leave in a blacked out Suburban. So without further adieu.........

    The Nexus Prime!!

    Don't know that I have posted here yet but I gotta say...nice "story." I love this thread.

    I am not new to Android nor the forums but like to post when I feel confident.

    All I gotta say is that I am stoked to get this phone.

    I patiently wait...

    CK, I'm beginning to worry about you. You're here all the time. You've obviously lost your job....you never seem to leave long enough to eat or drink or go to the bathroom. I fear some sort of intervention may be in order......have you even been outside in this past month??? A little help here.....anyone?? Anyone??

    Really? Why...just, why? That sound you hear is CK's credibility leaving the station...
