Verizon Holilday lineup leak reappears, confirms Samsung Nexus Prime for Big Red

Yesterday, a curious little document representing a possible Verizon Holiday season lineup leaked out, but it was so full of typos, we doubted it was the real deal. Today though, a very similar one…
This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Also missing is the LG Enlighten, which has leaked all over the place (including the VZW fall catalogue!) and should be taking the reins from the Ally, while the Illusion takes over for the Vortex. I don't believe this is a complete list of new devices.
Unless what this REALLY means is that the Vigor is coming sooner than the holiday season.

HTC Vigor suppose to be coming out Oct. 6 so yea thats before the holiday season

Phonearena is famous for photoshop pics. LOL What a joke! Is it really that boring there. The "we are hiring" pop-up gets old too. :)

Damn Verizon upgrade feature phone to smartphone ends this month. Might have to get Droid bionic

Still a really, really good device from reviews I have read. Maybe the Prime makes it within 30 day return period?
15. nb2six (Posts: 298; Member since: 27 Apr 2011)
It's 14 to back out of the agreement. Still 30 days to exchange to another device depending on where you go.

there's also that Radio Shack rumor that says they will slash $100 of all verizon phones

Sigh .... still not even a hint of W7 Mango. Oh well, my loss. If we decide to move to Verizon , which is the most expensive option for me but has the best reception by far in my area, this is a really, really good set of Android options to choose from. I am leaning to the HTC Vigor if I go LTE, the Droid 3 if I don't. (Not going to be in my area for a long while.) My wife will drool over the Nexus Prime, so that is the most likely for her.

I should start saving. This or the galaxy s 3??
13. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
the galaxyS-3, or what we thought it was going to be anyways, is actually the Prime. the S2's successor is a long way off at this point.

No doubt the SG3 will be a great phone but that's another life time
7. cheeseycheeser (Posts: 413; Member since: 24 Mar 2011)
I wonder if I begged if they'd let me upgard my Thunderbolt early to the Vigor, or Prime for regular price.
22. costcoHotDogs (Posts: 10; Member since: 14 Sep 2011)
good-luck Big Red is on a roll for Greediness
42. roldefol (Posts: 4097; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Yes, how dare they subsidize your $500 phone and then not subsidize another $500 phone half a year later!
I'm sorry, I have zero sympathy for people whining about the eeevil phone companies when they're pretty up front about limitations. If you don't like what the fine print says, don't sign a contract.
45. roldefol (Posts: 4097; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
In fact, I was pleasantly surprised to discover the $100 feature phone-to-smartphone credit actually allows me to upgrade before my NE2 date. No, Verizon isn't doing it just to be generous - they'd be getting an extra $20 worth of data plan out of me - but it is pretty sweet that they'll let me upgrade early.

It's not a charity case. It's a business. Businesses try to make money. If u don't like it that's ok! Nobody is gonna force u to buy verizon!
48. cnwwyo (Posts: 126; Member since: 26 May 2011)
the vigor will be the same thing as the t-bolt maybe with minute differences. they just change the name to sell more
54. roldefol (Posts: 4097; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Sure, minute differences like a dual core processor running 50% faster, higher quality (either qHD or 720p HD) screen, different shape, probably lighter weight, bigger battery....
Not an iPhone 3G to 3GS type overhaul, but subtle improvements.
55. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
the snapdragon core is not capable of a 720p screen. The only one that might be in existance would be the Nexus Prime.. first true HD screen ever.
56. roldefol (Posts: 4097; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Yeah, I'm thinking there might have been some confounding of rumors. People may have heard VZW was getting a 720p phone (the Prime) this fall, then heard the Vigor was coming this fall and confused the two. I think the Vigor will have the same qHD S-LCD screen HTC uses on the Sensation and EVO 3D. And I'll be perfectly happy with that, as it's the best screen I've seen this side of an iP4.
I think for all intents and purposes the Sensation XE is the Vigor minus LTE.

I think I have left some clues hehe
I currently own a Nexus S

Its funny how phone arena just just throws in the name nexus. Nowhere in the document does it says nexus prime and we all know by now that verizon is getting a bloated up version call samsung prime - the nexus name.
14. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
notice where it says "Samsung Prime"
Thats also why I think this document is a fake. Not 2 weeks ago, we were told the prime was not its real name, and instead it was the Galaxy Nexus or some nonsence.

Still won't beat the GS2 exynos still superior

Y Allday28 tell me Why I'm an idiot?
39. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
if they are both running the same version of the OS, then yea, the exynos will always be superior as its the strongest chip availible right now. What remains to be seen is how the full dual core chip support for ICS affects benchmarks and such, since its the first android phone version that has full dual core support.
21. DROIDX0430 (Posts: 466; Member since: 24 Nov 2010)
Cosco--guess you haven't read the facts either.....none of the GS2 in America will have Exynos---
24. costcoHotDogs (Posts: 10; Member since: 14 Sep 2011)
WTF it has already been confirmed damn are you joking or r u dumb. The FACT that both the ATnT and Sprint versions are coming with the exynos is confirmed all over the place.
23. DROIDX0430 (Posts: 466; Member since: 24 Nov 2010)
same ole hummingbird in the GS2---no exynos--They will save it for the Prime so that will keep all you people out there on your toes waiting, and waiting, and waiting---next will be quad core--you will wait,,then will be 4.5 screens, then you will wait, then there will be quad core, 4.5 screen, LTE, 2 GB of ram and you will wait--you will never catch up--so get a phone and be happy.......
25. costcoHotDogs (Posts: 10; Member since: 14 Sep 2011)
Oh I get a grumpy morning person HUH? does this mean you r not interested in the new techs? than Y R U here Idiot?
26. DROIDX0430 (Posts: 466; Member since: 24 Nov 2010)

Dude you're such a debbie downer.
28. DROIDX0430 (Posts: 466; Member since: 24 Nov 2010)
what good is exynos on Sprint with a 2g network, the same for ATT's hspa 2 g network
31. costcoHotDogs (Posts: 10; Member since: 14 Sep 2011)
DROIDX0430 what phone do you have and where have you been the last few weeks? There was such a thing called the Samsung event that happened not too long ago where there are hundreds of people there to play with the phones. The company, reps, and people there confirmed it. The atnt site is up confirming it, wirefly is pre ordering and listing as so. So STFU because your an idiot. Oh and Sprint has wimax and Atnt has the fasted 3.5G network... man I can't believe I'm responding to such a idiot!
52. MikeG77 (Posts: 397; Member since: 24 Nov 2008)
I hate to tell you costco but your acting like a bigger idiot with your little rant.
30. DROIDX0430 (Posts: 466; Member since: 24 Nov 2010)
Coscohotdog---do you know what exynos is--other than some elaborate name--
Heck--hummingbird snap processor sounded great also--but was it????
Tegra even sounds better---
Ooooh exynos-- Gotta have it...
just like the isheep--just because it sounds and looks good
33. DROIDX0430 (Posts: 466; Member since: 24 Nov 2010)
costcohamburger--evidentally you are not in the same league as me..i own a Bionic and have owned the Droid1, Droid2, Droid 3, X, X2, Thunderbolt and Charge---I want even troll with you if you are referencing Wirefly and think that ATT has the fastest 3g network in America--when the whole world knows who that title belongs to...And it's not ATT or Sprint.....Later...I thought you were up to speed--but in your choosing of a screen name also confirms my thoughts about you....Later--o and stop giving yourself thumbs up....and I'm ON LTE--know what that means--and who has the fastest LTE...
35. bolaG (Posts: 468; Member since: 15 Aug 2011)
I dont get why people fuss about the name of the phone. Cant people just be content that its going to be the first phone with the combo of LTE, Dual Core, Super Amoled HD, and ICS? Who cares if its call Galaxy Nexus, Nexus Prime, Droid Prime, or what ever else they may name it.
36. DROIDX0430 (Posts: 466; Member since: 24 Nov 2010)
I will be by Costco today to get me of those Hebrew National Hotdogs..

Good luck but they only carry Kirkland's dogs in the food court

Wait, wait, wait, wait.... Where's the side-model of the Samsung Droid Charge? Was at a vendor fair a month ago and the samsung rep was rocking a DROID Charge with a slide out keyboard.. same specs on the phone just with a keyboard (LTE, 4.3", Super AMOLED+, etc)....
Now, I could be totally wrong here, but I'm going to take a stab in the dark and suggest that the "Samsung Prime" isn't the Nexus Prime, but the slide out keyboard Droid Charge upgrade?
I swear he said the name started with a P but I can't remember if he said the word "Prime" or not.
Guess we will just have to see...
44. roldefol (Posts: 4097; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
That slide-out model would be the Samsung Stratosphere. This article has it replacing the Fascinate, but hardware wise it's closer to the Charge.
