True, but with its current leaked specs it would easily overshadow the droid Razr if it launched within the same few days.

I'm sick of this. Its getting so frustrating waiting for anything concrete about this blasted phone. If they don't announce it soon, I'm just going to fold and get an Epic 4G Touch and be done with it.

That'll sure show Samsung! Punish them by buying another one of their products.

That's my primary reason for wanting the Prime. I've waited over a year for Android phones to catch up to the crispness of the iPhone 4's screen. Say what you will about iOS, that screen is a thing of beauty. Combine that fine resolution with Super AMOLED and it'll blow other displays away.

Oh and ICS looks pretty neat, too.

Hasn't the "bigger is better" trend hit critical mass with the Note? How much phone are people going to want to hold up to their ears?

Arrrrgh! I'm gonna go to BestBuy, buy a SGS 2, and just take it back in the next 45 days for a full refund if something better comes out.

I'm going to give it until the end of November if not might end up picking up a glorified app launcher phone lol at least I know its built strong and within a year they will release a update. But nexus is the first choice.!! Samsung hurry up lol or else apple will ban you in every part of the globe.

Well the thing did say "Something BIG was coming" And it only makes sense that they were talking about the Galaxy Note, which has a 5.3 inch display if I'm not correct.

it didn't tease a picture of the Note. it doesn't have a curved screen. i believe they'll unveil Tablet dock functionality with the Prime.
