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...

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!!!

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.

Are you kidding me? The 1.5 TI OMAP 4460 is the only thing that's NOT breath taking. The SGX 540 can't even touch the Mali 400.

With T-mobile so to be acquired by AT&T, I highly doubt Google would risk putting their next Nexus device on a network to be integrated with ma bell's who runs on different 3G & 4G frequencies.

3. MichaelHeller (Posts: 2707; Member since: 26 May 2011)

that acquisition won't go through for at least a year, if it is ever actually approved. Google will have to make that decision with the Nexus 4 but the Prime is safe.

jamister, its not like ATT is going to just shut down all tmobile 4g signals right away.. they would be pissing off half of Tmobile's customers who reside in high end phones.. which would probably be 10-15 million people screaming bloody murder that their phones dont work. If ATT did that, they would have to let Tmobile people out of their contracts for breaking the original tmobile agreements on service.. they arent going to do any of that.

Besides, what does a phone manufacturer care. In the off chance that im wrong and ATT really does that then the manufacturer sold X millions to tmobile customers who now need new phones and gets to resell X millions to the same people. they win twice.

I agree with gallitoking. Nothing seems to stand out about this phone so far (huge disappointment for me if it only has a 5MP camera). Running ice cream sandwich alone wouldn't make me run to get this phone.

Same question as to gallitoking

ICS makes dual core run more than twice as fast as it does now. So imagine current phones such as the SGS2 on a quad core and you'll have the Nexus Prime. ICS really is something to love.

Michael you think that a phone of this caliber should have a 5mp camera.. rushed ICS?...

As I said in this article, and the article I wrote about rushing ICS, I don't want either of those things. But, regardless of OS preference, I'd expect the idea of a 720p screen on a phone to excite our readership, because a screen like that wouldn't just push forward other Android handsets, but it would push Apple and WP7 manufacturers to better their screens as well. The iPhone retina display would be the reason Google wants to push high res screens. This screen would push everyone. It's the glorious circle of tech.

I work in the mobile phone industry and have been talking to a Samsung rep in recently,the rep has seen and held the nexus prime and said its the same spec as the galaxy s2 but with a curved screen and metal frame back. Nexus prime will not allow memory card storage but will have 'large' memory

The phone does has ice cream os but does not features the super amoled plus hd screen as that according to the rep will be by the looks of it kept for the galaxy s3 in the start of 2012. The rep also claimed the galaxy s2 will be getting an update to ice cream in october/november

Still doesn't interest me like the iPhone 5 does. Plus, it looks like a bar of soap.

Ha! Bar of soap, that's a good one. Good to know you're sticking with iPhone tho Miz!

lol bar of soap... really?
p.s the only REAL interesting thing the iPhone5 might have is that this won't have the ability to drop calls.... it's magic ;)
anyways, i am sooo getting this when it come's out... i don't care if its HD or not, i just want S-AMOLED.... the screen is far better than any LCD one(including the iPhone and its retina display, which this has beat).
