As the chips continue to fall into place, we want to gather it all up to cover what has been confirmed, what's still just rumor, and what is probably completely false when it comes to the Nexus Prime...
This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

other than the 1.5 GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4460 SoC-.. i dont see anything breath taking.. A Lindsey back to rehab creates more buzz than this phone...

a full 720p HD screen on a phone doesn't excite you at all?
15. The_Miz (Posts: 1496; Member since: 06 Apr 2011)
Why should it? It'll just be another supposedly high end phone that won't really amount to much compared to the iPhone 5 especially with all the problems the Nexus S had.

I love how iSheep like to forget about all the problems that iPhones have has. Most notably the "death grip" on the iPhone 5, making it useless as a phone depending on how you use it.
30. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
well the death grip sold millions and how did your pretty phone sold?.... all phones have problems but not like the android phones. the also dominate in complaints... google it.. jejejeje
53. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)
lol so I guess because the iPhone sold millions its the best??? thats how you measure success? ok, using your "success scale" if u have a look at the stats you will notice that Android handsets outsell apple worldwide. Android market share is greater than iOS. But that is not the reason I bought my "pretty little" nexus. Its cuz I got sick of not being able to view the flash vids my friends would post on fb. Not being able to watch the Daily Show Colbert report, not being able to bluetooth/bumb music.... the list is too long, in short... ur dum
64. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
listen buddy android works for you..not for me... why am I dumb.. can u androids respect people that like OS different than android.. it seems that you are dumb one.. so now your friends like you because u can view videos.. wow almost drew a tear...

gallito uses an androidphone, not an iphone. dont let him fool you. he doesnt own any iphones at all.
132. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
jajajjaa ..wow see how in a few weeks u went from everyone thinking that you were smart ..and it took me to flush that out of you, and all of your latest comments has truly shown who you really are... dont believe me.. go back a month and you used to make sense.. now...
"gallito uses an androidphone, not an iphone. dont let him fool you. he doesnt own any iphones at all."....
and for the record.. I only use my phone for calling i use my ipad2 for all may data.. .. yep dont be fooled by remixfa... aka fraud
141. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
really gallito.. whats your current smartphone? :) I use an SGS and I have an LG G-Slate. You act like a huge apple fanboy... and no, normally you make zero sense or points... and u use an android phone all day.
sounds like your just here to stir up the boards.
145. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
and gallito, I havent changed. In the last weeks you have gone further and further over to hugging Miz and Taco and a full fledged apple troll. Noone has changed here except you. lol.
you realize you are trolling on an android thread? Your only purpose here is to troll and incite comments. Even taco doesnt normally do that. That puts you right beside Miz and his spandex play toys.
146. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
Taco already tried this whole "lets try to make remix look like a liar" bit. its been used. it didnt work for him, and its not working for you. Your just making yourself look loonier.
get a new shtick.

There's one thing all you Apple Religious Right Zealots always forget. iPhone quit being new in 2007 and they have been playing catch up ever since to Android. Over 20 of the new features offered in iOS 5 have been taken from Android and they still haven't caught up to it in many ways even in Beta.
Still no true Widgetsssss (Plural). You have a Widget screen with one Widget that also goes into suspended mode when not being used. If it's not "Live", you're always playing catch up (lagging behind). It's not even a Widget then (it's an App). It's no different than their cheap excuse for MultiTasking that iOS can't run, because it wasn't build into the kernel, like on Android.
I like to rag on all you iDiots for iOS not having FLASH support. Which still isn't dead, nor will it be anytime soon. All it needed was hardware acceleration (which it got) and I've been using it since it first came on Android. Video sites are even offering HTML5 alternative, but yet traffic mapping has shown that those that can view FLASH pick it over HTML5.
Hope you're happy seeing all those blank spaces where it doesn't load on iOS. I also hope you get that Apple is telling you it's fine for OS-X, but iOS users can't use it. But you iFools are the kind of people that would be happier living in the former Soviet Union under an iCommunist Dictatorship anyway!
#1 Choice is very lacking in Apple's iOS devices. It's kind of like Steve Jobs's Mao Suit wardrobe and too lazy to shave attitude. Just because NeXT computer didn't get it's FLASH port in time to get Steve the school deals, he's had a hard on against FLASH, besides wanting to keep Quicktime Framework as the only hot plugable runtime available. That's with an even worse security record than..... FLASH!!! haha.....
It's therefore Prime time for Nexus to again lead the way being the first mobile device with FLASH 11 loaded. That's w/ full P2P, 3D Molehill API Acceleration, that has been shown to be far better than WebGL (Apple's choosing) and like FLASH itself, still running faster and better than any non-standard HTML5 video or game application on the web. Yeah FLASH 11 is more than alive and will still PWN online games, now even more so!!!

It was sold alot because of high ads and the common people follow, there are alot.
It is certainly not the best
187. ikkuh (Posts: 33; Member since: 22 May 2011)
uuuhhh...even that isn't true.
there at least 10 phones that sold better in history.
nr 1 is still the Nokia 1100 (250 million)
226. ovo2011 (unregistered)
The razr sold the best does that mean its the best no.... and more android device where sold then ios device so by ur scale its the best os....... dang macfag troll
191. OB (unregistered)
Iphones sell because morons buy into whatever is popular and what the person beside them buys.. yeah iphone was great.. in 08.. there's nothing amazing or jaw dropping about the crappy 4 other than the retina display and omg new software on the 5.. and practically every issue on a droid can be fixed consumers just dont want to bother trying and I'm a tech. The best carrier around which I'll keep unanomous but Iphones have multiple issues aswell.
209. taz89 (Posts: 1943; Member since: 03 May 2011)
more sales does not mean better,,,just means more popular...
42. The_Miz (Posts: 1496; Member since: 06 Apr 2011)
Oh WOW, ONE problem compared to the numerous problems main Android phones have. And big deal, if you kept your iphone in a case, like anyone should with a smartphone, it never happened.
51. PotDragon (banned) (Posts: 214; Member since: 22 Jul 2011)
How would you know MIz? You never had an iphone 4. Or the case for one.

Will seeing that the iPhone 5 hasn't come out yet, idk how you would know it has "death grip" issues.
If you're going dis a product please know what you're talking about. -___-

jesus kid. your such a n00b @ life. troll somewhere else.
70. PeterIfromsweden (Posts: 1230; Member since: 03 Aug 2011)
You're wrong there.
The Nexus Prime is another high end phone that wont really be anything exiting compared to Wave 3 ; )
74. protozeloz (Posts: 5326; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
And what features does the wave processes that will make it worth having
76. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
bada.. duh. peter is like taco.. just replace an apple logo for a bada one on anything and its the best thing ever.. lol.
165. UltraElectroMagneticPOP (Posts: 49; Member since: 30 Aug 2011)
@PeterIfromsweden I just love how dedicated you are to bada. It's not really the annoying fanboy type. Just a really dedicated fanboy. LOL
212. roldefol (Posts: 2855; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
We love you when you're endlessly pushing bada, Peter, but when you start comparing hardware you just sound ignorant.
244. thekai12 (Posts: 25; Member since: 07 Dec 2010)
i just hate that you come trolling about your wave 3 do that in the wave 3 review section please and i dont hate the wave 3 so dont thumb me down
106. readingthissh1t (Posts: 303; Member since: 20 Jul 2011)
sigh* you have your head so far up Apple's ass that its quite amazing. Apple is magical, they can create iSlaves that live Apple. To them, Apple is the alpha and the omega. Why cant you see that Android is better spec wise and design wise?(widgetss and lwp)
The iPhone 5 will play catch up with current *High end android devices. I love the Android operating system and I love the *High end handsets that run on Android, but I'm not reluctant to point out Android's flaws. The only reason I haven't yet is you. personally I think your a fat f**k that lives in the basement. Nexus prime will kill iPhone 5, not in sales(iPhone is not possible to beat in sales)but feature wise.
202. narley (Posts: 357; Member since: 14 May 2009)
theres no such thing as an iphone5... shtttuuuupid.
233. belovedson (Posts: 821; Member since: 30 Nov 2010)
i own a nexus s. what problems you shmuck
20. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
the only thing exciting on the phone to me is ICS and the screen. 1.5ghz sounds nice but what does that actually do for performance/battery drain. Is it actually faster than a 1.2ghz exynos at that speed.. the same.. or still less?
if it has better than a 5mpx camera that would help. on a "reference device" it should have at least 8mpx which is what most are launching with.. if not push it to 10-12mpx. or... even better.. come with a professional quality iris instead of that little pinhole they use for cell phones.
26. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
need more than that to excite me for the Prime...
32. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
then what excites you in the iPhone 5? the fact that it uses a feature phone OS, or that it won't hold calls and drop them?
35. E.N. (Posts: 2218; Member since: 25 Jan 2009)
The death grip might be a problem, but I'm really digging the design of the iPhone 5 though.
39. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
meh, it's the same design as the iP4, so it's basically a brick.
50. E.N. (Posts: 2218; Member since: 25 Jan 2009)
Wow, I was being sarcastic. We don't know anything about the iPhone 5.
37. biggles (Posts: 208; Member since: 15 Oct 2009)
Hard to imagine an Apple fan can't get excited over a larger display altogether with a higher resolution than anything called an iPhone. I think my flip phone from 3 years ago had a bigger display than the iPhone.
54. 305Bucko (Posts: 506; Member since: 07 Aug 2011)
if the iPhone had a 4.5" 720p screen the apple fanboys would go flippin nuts. But if its on a nexus, its not a big deal. Snap out of it iSheep try to look beyond the fad.
66. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
why bother dude, u wont believe and dispute everything i say.. dont ask what you are not ready to listen...
71. taz89 (Posts: 1943; Member since: 03 May 2011)
You say the prime does not excite you with its spec so how does the new iphone excite you cause from the rumors it will only be catching up with the android devices..ie bigger screen,dual core,8mp camera etc
77. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
gallito, you dont even own an iphone.. lol. your the worst kind of isheep.. a wannabe isheep... lol
81. Tmachaveli (Posts: 425; Member since: 01 Apr 2011)
amen to that this man got a ipad and now he is king fruit when u use to have a droid if your droid was so bad why didn't u just get another one.??
108. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
Tmachaveli ... I gave Android a chance.. I think that i have all the right to buy the product that I pleased and give my support to whatever product i want... i never ask to support Apple .. never... i only defend the product I support... and prove android idiots... that they are more phoney than apple as u guys dont respect people that dont like Android.. ask peterfromsweden...
118. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
i respect peter a hell of a lot more than i respect iDiots. As much of a crack addict as he is about BADA at least hes not a trolling dumbass.. lol

bada.. duh. peter is like taco.. just replace an apple logo for a bada one on anything and its the best thing ever.. lol.
right.. you are not only a fraud.. but a freakin lier...
142. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
how does one contradict the other? Mind explaining that?
149. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
well you say you respect peter when on the bada argument you never gave us proofs. and on this article you made fun of him... it doesnt seem like you respect me... dude.. grow up and realized the fraud you are...
154. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
first off, poking fun at peter because he never misses an opportunity to pimp bada and not liking the guy are 2 different things. If you go back on the boards there were multiple occasions where I even said I prefer peter's bada pimping over anything taco.. any day of the week.
And if I didnt respect you at least somewhat, we wouldnt be playing wordfeud on the side.. lol.
You however do say some nutty things and do things to incite a flame war.. which is the exact reason you in an android thread posting like crazy trying to get attention. It doesnt take 30 comments to say you are more interested in the iphone5 and whatever specs it may or may not have over the Nexus Prime. Even Taco doesnt do that anymore. Instead of pointing fingers, look in the mirror.
107. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
i do have the ipad2 and is flawless compare to the Droid X.. so that makes me the best kind of Isheep. i have had both.. ...ahh made you look dumb.... told you.. i can smell a phoney...
68. Eingild (Posts: 203; Member since: 19 Apr 2011)
Then why the f**k are you loitering on this article. If the nexus prime is not so much of a breath-taker for you then go somewhere else. Sheesh
150. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
is very simple... i can comment in any article I pleased.. just like the always popular Apple articles full of haters.. dont like it.. go to the nickjr website.. is all love over there...
69. iphoneisoldz (unregistered)
Iphone looks sleek but its an outdated piece of junk. If you hold it without a special case you lose service lol You can't even carry a spare battery something so simple that Apple doesn't allow. The navigation that comes with android alone destroys the iphone, iphone uses an outdated navigation system. Iphone is for simple minded lemmings.
151. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)

155. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
so is my galaxyS1, but hey it still does more than an iphone4 and they run on the same hardware. :)
160. pandamaja (unregistered)
That's because its not an iphone. Here are some facts about you:
There is nothing in this world that could make you use something besides iOS.
There is nothing in this world that would make you admit that iOS has been playing catch up to Android since at least 4.0, feature wise.
In your eyes, the iphone is the pinnacle of man. Everything else is pointless.
You're terrible at spelling. Because of your rampant use of 'u' instead of 'you' I can only assume you're, in fact, a 14 year old girl.
Who do you expect to convince here? Simpleton troll is simple.
