Did Tony Hawk accidentally leak a T-Mobile-branded Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

Did Tony Hawk accidentally leak a T-Mobile-branded Samsung Galaxy Nexus?
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is already out on Verizon and globally, but one carrier that has not yet gotten it - and many wish it has - is T-Mobile. What do you know, T-Mobile might get the first ICS-based handset soon, if this tweet by the carrier’s favored Tony Hawk proves true. The famous skateboarder posted a picture of the Galaxy Nexus saying “I love T-Mobile.” Oops, but the carrier hasn’t released the device.

Now, the picture shows the new data menu, and Hawk’s data usage which stands above the 2GB allowance on his plan - at 3.63 gigs. Now, there’s slight chance that this is a Nexus S, but it’s unlikely as the screen looks bigger, more like the one on the latest Galaxy Nexus.

Of course, Hawk could have also just gotten the global version of the Galaxy Nexus and inserted a T-Mo SIM card in it. 

So whether that’s a hint of things to come or not, you’re to judge, in the meantime, though, don’t forget that if you don’t like to wait for the T-Mobile Galaxy Nexus, Saturday will bring a huge sale of all T-Mo phones and some tablets. Check it out - you might find what you like there.

Tony hawk is committed to T-Mobile. He's been sponsored by them for a while and have done plenty of advertising for the company. Its not about the network to him. If you remember the tony hawk edition sidekick lx, that's one example. And besides... What do mountains have to do with tony hawk (the SKATEBOARDER)?

how did autocorrect adjust the entire focus of your sentence to the mountains but not fix the spelling of "dissapoitns". if you made a mistake admit it, jeez.

All I'm saying is this phone better come to T-Mobile even if this is true. I've been saying" get the Gnex on T-Mobile since it was launched

I'm thinking that it's more like an unlocked Galaxy Nexus, considering that he is "famous" and might be traveling/touring quite a bit around the world. Though, there is a chance that it could just be a Nexus S that's been updated to ICS (which I've seen one at Bestbuy a few weeks ago and was surprised that it had been updated), or it could be some other Android device that has been rooted and running a custom ICS ROM.
