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...

You really would like him as an Android user? I mean sharing OS preference with him must be a torture. My iPhone friends facepalm at most his comments. Its like he pokes fun at iPhone users by becoming a meme

lol true that, u never know, he could be the black sheep of our eco-system, all eco-systems need one, he's already trained in the art of black-sheeping, so yeah, i won't mind, just for comic relief... no 1 would take him seriously, so he won't feel out of place.... i mean, no 1 takes him seriously anyways when he's for iOS ;)
oh and i like turtles

although a hd 720 screen sounds good on paper the tech is based on pentile. Also will the extra pixel really be that much better? and will the extra pixel pushing hurt the performance of the phone and battery overall? that's my concern over the screen and so i just can't be too excited.

other than that I don't think the difference between a 1.5ghz vs 1.2 ghz really make a real world difference.

the gpu on the nexus is most likely the 540 if the soc is the 4460, if that is the case than that gpu is old just clocked higher.

ics just might be overly rushed if that is the case than it will lack features, polishing, and full of bugs.

probably won't come to verizon

in conclusion: am I excited- maybe just a little I'll have to wait out, but for now I will be getting the gs2 on sprint for $25 plus tax when it comes out.

As to the screen issue, a 720p 4.5 inch screen would be classified as a retina display at 326ppi (http://members.ping.de/~sven/dpi.html), although I'm not sure how much the pentile matrix would affect (effect?) that. I've always thought of the retina display as a gimmick anyways, but if anyone's really into pixel density it's a plus I guess...

the nexus prime will be better if it have tha snapdragon s4 with 28 nm , or the tegra 3 kal-el

so, you'd rather the Nexus Prime came at an undetermined time next year, rather than this fall?

if it has a snapdragon ANYTHING in it, imma pass it right by. kal-el would be great though.

And Michael,
Im torn on that aspect. I really hoped it would launch the Kal El. If it was like the difference of 1 maybe 2 months then yea, I would rather it wait.. if it pushes it back to febuary, heck no...

but it should at least be a 1.5ghz exynos in there. :)

I'm pretty sure it's gonna be the 1.5 OMAP. Exynos hasn't gotten past 1.2. Samsung's been too busy making 720p screens and watching Kubrick movies.

their roadmap before said that they planned on taking the exynos up to 1.8ghz before its all done... so we'll see. Until we get official specs, Imma keep my fingers crossed that samsung continues to push exynos in its "flagship" phones.. which the Prime should definitely be. Also, if history is an indicator (the nexus2 was almost completely identical to SGS internally), it has a good chance.

3.i am hoping that it will come to sprint within 2011
and finally how sick of a wallpaper would that optimus prime icon up top be for the prime
(if some one could make it a wall paper that would be sick)
