GSM version of Google Nexus Prime passes through the FCC

0. phoneArena 08 Oct 2011, 13:47 posted on

The GSM version of the Google Nexus Prime has visited the FCC which is another item that you can draw a line through on your "things-to-do" checklist; of course, a thumbs up from the FCC is not a guarantee that a phone will be launched soon...

it just confirmed it had Tmo 4g signals in the FCC Filing. Tmo has launched every nexus device. i doubt this will be different. My gut feeling is the "vzw exclusive" is going to be slightly different than the "nexus".

the real question is if its really going to be in store or not.. it better be in every store darn it!! lol

no they neglected to include the T-Mobile AWS at first then they updated their Article saying it DOES include AWS. you have that backwards Carlos. Every Single Article online including the Actual FCC website lists T-Mobile's bands.

No hating on this phone by apple or wp7 fans. None of you have tried ice cream sandwich. If it was a half baked os no one would be using it. At least android hasn't looked the same since it came out. Apple is copying more from android than android is from apple. The specs make it the best phone coming out, so deal with it. Android has the best phone out right now followed by iPhone4s, Wp7 and bada last.

WP7 user here, and I'm not hating on this device. I actually have high hopes for ICS, only because the UI is getting a significant face lift from one of the people involved with WebOS, which itself was a nice OS.

But, I can safely say that up until ICS, Android's overall UX has been...less than spectacular, and possibly bordering on frustrating. I do hope this changes that though; I don't lose anything by Android getting better.

Better chance of HSPA+ than LTE from AT&T for this year.

Not very excited about this phone mainly due to the OS. Ice Cream Sandwich just looks very outdated.

Indeed based on those very leaks. It can't and won't be any different to what we have already seen.

Just look at it, It is effectively the same as Android 1.5. How can this not be outdated.

it looks absolutely nothing like android 1.5 you apparently have never used an android. and to say it looks outdated must mean that there is something that is more functional than android. And that is? iOS certainly hasnt changed in 5 iterations? Are you are new BADA cheer leader?? lol. What is more "updated" than android?

Works on exactly the same principles. Ugly icons and widgets and moving left and right to all your homescreens.

Atleast MeeGo Harmatten and Windows Phone are breaking this dreadlock.

You realize Live Tiles is basically just widgets right?

@ roscuthiii

Live tiles are not exactly like widgets. Both do display live information, but in WP7, you don't have to download and install widgets. You can basically take ANYTHING and pin it as a Tile to the wall, including an individual web page, a single contact or group of contacts(with live information, status updates, etc. on the tile), or any screen within an application. It's like an advanced bookmarking system with live information rather than a standalone widget.

lol... meego- swiping actions
WP- swiping...
your point is?
i think ur confusing this with iOS... iOS hasn't changed its look for 5 iterations... not android

@ remixfa

See my comment about the live tiles above (comment #46). Also, it appears that Mozarrt was trying to argue that from its inception, the UI of Android works on the same principles. Obviously it is better looking and more polished now than it was to start, but at its core, it is still several walls of applications. This isn't to say that it doesn't work for those who use it, it just means that some people will find it stale, which is exactly what Mozarrt expressed.

And i hope it has a small bezel which makes the phone itself smaller than the SGSll.

Why is VZW so reluctant to put the dual banded radios in their phones? It would be a no brainer for business and casual world travelers alike, if VZW would make more of their phones Global!

3 day from getting my sgs2 and this news breaks. I was set, completely done waiting then THIS happens. Now I have to wait. Hopefully this time I won't be 6+ months behind the rest of the world.

My dad just got a sgs2 yesterday. It really is a great phone. I think you'd still be really happy with it. The biggest usable differences between the nexus and the gs2 is the screen and ICS. The gs2 will get ICS, and the screen on the gs2 is still awesome... but ya, the nexus screen should be pretty phenomenal. Still a good choice and you won't be disappointed.
