Verizon's big trio appears on Cellebrite system, HTC Vigor, Google Nexus Prime and Motorola DROID HD

Verizon's big trio appears on Cellebrite system, HTC Vigor, Google Nexus Prime and Motorola DROID HD
As the week draws to a close,we have some very good news for Verizon customers who have been eagerly awaiting one of the carrier's upcoming trio of high-end Android phones. The HTC Vigor, the Google Nexus Prime and the Motorola DROID HD (aka DROID RAZR) all now appear on the Cellebrite system. That is the machine that the carriers have in their stores, used to transfer over your contacts and other information from your old handset to your new one. While appearing on the Cellebrite system doesn't indicate that a launch is imminent, it still is a good sign that a launch could be happening soon.

First to be rolled out will most likely be the HTC Vigor with October 13th a previously mentioned launch date. This model will have a 4.3 inch screen with a 720p resolution, a zippy 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. This model will have the Beats Audio brand which means it will come with those special red Beats by Dre earphones.

Next should be the Google Nexus Prime, which has been rumored to have a November 3rd launch date. This is scheduled to be the first Android phone running Ice Cream Sandwich and the early word is that Verizon will have an undisclosed period where the phone will be exclusive to Big Red. Just the other day, a list of apps was leaked and miraculously, it appears that there will be no Verizon bloatware on the phone. The speculation is that this model will have a massive 4.65 inch curved glass display with 720p resolution, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. A microSD slot is on board and a huge 2000mAh battery supplies the juice. Supposedly, the browser has been reworked with smoother "pinch-to-zoom" while the calendar and Gmail have also been improved. A 5MP camera on back captures 1080p video and there is a front-facing camera as well. This phone is expected to be a pure Google experience model.

The Motorola DROID HD would be last among the three to launch. Also called the DROID RAZR, the phone is due out in time for the holiday shopping season with a chassis made of Waterproof Kevlar (the same material used in bulletproof vests) and is rumored to offer a 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED display, and have a 1.2GHz dual-core processor under the hood with 1GB of RAM aboard. An 8MP camera captures video at 1080p.

Now that all three appear on the Cellebrite system, next step should be the dummy units headed to Verizon stores and perhaps we will find some leaked ads as well. Those who used up all their will power and passed on the Motorola DROID BIONIC might find themselves rewarded for waiting.

I thought a source said the Prime will have a 8mp camera?

I wonder if the Droid RAZR will also have ICS..

Doubt the RAZR will run ICS? Or that the Prime will have 8mp camera?

8mp is fairly standard now. Why would the prime not have one?

In earlier reports they mentioned as been a 5 MP advanced shooter being better than any current 8 MP, remember a high MP doesn't mean a better camera, personally all I care at this point about the Prime is that is coming with LTE radio

if these companies know what is good for them, they will announce what ever they have, no matter when its due to release as soon as possible. they need to spill the beans and lay all their cards on the table before consumers get hypnotized by apple's event.

that's what Motorola did with the Bionic and you see what happened. they need to be good and ready before they announce new devices. there's no rush.

the bionic never got this close to its rumored launch date without some sort of delay. and there was no giant iphone announcement.

im not saying they need to say when its coming before they are sure. but, they need to let the customers know whats being offered before they all snatch up iphones.

everyone THOUGHT there was going to be a big iPhone announcement not to mention the Verizon iPhone was announced just weeks after the orginal Bionic. also we don't really know if any of these are really ready for their rumored launch dates. just wait and see and don't jynx it.

well they can do a teaser or something but a full product announcement should only be made when they're sure they can at least give an approximate launch date.

The MP of the camera really makes no difference. We'll see how the actual photo quality comes out when the units are released and/or the specs of the camera/lens are revealed.

Thank you. Very few people know this. 5MP is like the perfect amount. You could blow it up on your computer and you would never know the difference unless you're picture editing on a 50" TV.

I have been waiting to buy my first Smartphone and it took a lot of will power to pass on the BIONIC. Can't wait for these to be released. I wish they would have close release dates to I dont have to wait to see how they compare. Leaning towards the PRIME right now but the Vigor looks enticing too.

Why is there two bionic listed, One with model # "XT865" and the other with " XT875"?

posted on 30 Sep 2011, 18:42

7. bjn714 (Posts: 3; Member since: 30 Sep 2011)


The XT865 was the first version of the Bionic that was supposed to be the Tegra 2 version until Moto had so many issues with the T2 and LTE. The XT875 is the revision that launched.

Now I have to figure out how to buy all of these with no upgrades available. Going to get expensive.

Not until next year. You will see the 4S this October/November but it will be no where near as good as any of these 3 phones.

You should see my Thunderbolt with BAMF Forever. The only thing the iPhone has on it is screen resolution and battery life. In every other respect, the bolt equals or betters the iPhone. Smooth as butter, and twice as snappy.

The Iphone or Iphone's will be available for sale on AT&T, SPRINT and VZN 2 or 2 1/2 weeks after the big announcement by Apple on Tuesday October 4th 2011 . Most reports point to between October 14th to October 21st time frame.

While the stock Android is pretty good, with the recent news of Samsung actively improving their software with the programmers from custom ROM makers such as CyanogenMod, I'm excited to see how they implement the next TouchWiz.

nuff said? What are you 5? People how different view on what is good. Most people who like pure android, don't even use pure android. They root and but custom rom. Custom rom is not pure android.
