Support page for the Samsung GT-I9250 spotted, is it the Google Nexus Prime?
A "support" web page for the Samsung GT-I9250 has been discovered. That model number has been rumored to be the Google Nexus Prime, supposedly being launched by T-Mobile. But as we reported Monday, Verizon is expected to be the first carrier to launch an Ice Cream Sandwich powered device with a variant of the Nexus Prime called the Samsung DROID Prime (SCH-i515). Expected to be released as soon as October, this will undoubtedly be Verizon's Android flagship phone for the holidays.

Although the carrier situation is confusing, the specs are pretty much solid. The display is expected to be 4.5 or 4.65 inches with resolution of 720p. Under the hood, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor will be driving the device with Android's new Ice Cream Sandwich OS build installed.

While the "support" page for the GT-I9250 doesn't reveal much in the way of information, the combination of the page being live and the recent Wi-Fi certification of the handset leads us to believe that a launch of the phone is not too far away.

Why not just get the iPhone 5GS? It's practically the same as the iPhone 1/3G/3GS/4/4S/5.

17. ilia1986 unregistered

lol no no no the iPhone 5 will be teh magical and teh revolutionary - it will be so gooood that your hand will melt to liquid gold while holding it - your eyes will pop out of your head, and your wallet will be stripped of cash. if you hold it correctly.

All of this information is totally rumored at this point. This article is totally misleading. None of this is confirmed AT ALL. PhoneArena needs to say THIS IS A RUMOR, because passing it off as fact is just unprofessional.

Remember the Function was going to be the first Galaxy s 2 released and that was going to be on verizon now they arent getting it so far... could it be the same with this.. i hope it has Optimus Primes voice saying Droid..... it would just be funny...

6. WhiteZero unregistered

Lets not get too excited here. There has been no clarification if this will actually be a Nexus device. In fact, it's been said it'll just be called the Verizon DROID Prime. There is no way Verizon will let a pure Nexus phone be let on their line-up.

To really make the phone ahead of its time, Samsung should release an ANDROID OS with Ice cream (or newer), quad core 2GHz processor with two 16 MP cameras, 5" screen phone, with SUPER AMOLED HD-BLU GORILLA GLASS screen of the highest known resolution, 1080p or higher.. Also, have it come with 64GB of internal memory and 8GB of RAM.

and be a full inch thick.. and the battery will last only 3 hours even though its a 3800Mah battery... lets throw in the LTE and full usb port on the fucker for a wired keyboard and mouse. really dude. think about basic electronics first before you expect more...

lol, I know....but it will be possible before too long. LTE 4G - yes, we gotta have that - just turn off the data when asleep, to save battery. Battery can be self charging using solar energy, or static electricity. Yeah, it would still need to be a big battery. Every year some company comes out with a smaller processor. Just wait as the next 5 years should bring some advancements in phone tech. It will happen due to competition with the iphone - a phone made by a company that does not believe in innovation.

I acknowledge that the iPhone is a huge competitor but in terms of advancements, Everyone has been coming pretty far.. To make a phone ahead of its time now is to set it up for disaster. Stability is what i need and want and if it can replace my netbook than really its all i need. 1.2ghz does that duelcore even better. Droid Prime or HTC vigor or Incredible HD what ever they are going to call it for me. .. just wish they had the physical Keyboard.. thats all i desire. and a battery that lasts more than 7 hours of heavy use.

18. ilia1986 unregistered

vantenkiest - not any longer. The iPhone 5 will launch with 1GHz dual core processor. That's end of 2010 specs. iPhone used to be the among the best in hardware.. right until Android came (end of 2008, 412 Mhz on the 3G, 528Mhz on the G1), and then it became inferior in both hardware AND software.

battery would only last two seconds, it'll be filled with so much bloat that it'd make verizon "do stuff," it'd be last to the iPhone, it'd have so many viruses and malware, and so on.

AT engadget.... they got info about the GT I9220, that one has dua band wifi 2-5ghz I think Not sure which one is legit. Not sure which one is the True Droid Prime

What's the point in having a 1.5ghz or a 3.5ghz, when the android OS still laggs!!! I noticed this on almost ever android phone and tablet, including my own tablet..... Fix the OS first , then bring on more power :) IMO

21. ilia1986 unregistered

Well, CX3NT3_713 here's the thing: First - Android is like your PC. Overload it too much by graphical elements and apps running in the background - it's going to lag. Same here. Second - if it lags - FIX IT YOURSELF! You see, in Android you can change the entire operating system! All by yourself! It's called installing a custom rom. Something iOS will NEVER be able to do among many other things.

Well illa, the g-slate doesn't have a easy root method yet.. So I'm pretty much screwed,, and yea I heard of roms ect,

23. ilia1986 unregistered

Did anyone say it was always easy? Besides - one of the things you gotta check before buying a phone. Buttom line - the need to root, the need to maybe change your rom, even an app crashing on you once a week is NOTHING compared to the possibility of customizing your phone the way YOU (and not some fruit company) want. It's like Car Vs bicycle. Sure, car has a lot more technical problems - but which one would you choose if they were about evenly priced?

This argument doesn't make any sense. When I buy I a smartphone I'm expecting the programmers, engineers and anyone else involved to design hardware and software that are compatible with one another and runs efficiently. I DON'T WANT TO FIX IT!. That would be like buying a car that should get 25mpg and only getting 20mpg and asking the buyer to redesign the engine. I don't think so.

Agree with CX3NT, every Android phone i've tried lags, even the Galaxy S2 when i have tried it in the shops. Allright it is the fastest and best android phone, but it still is not as fast and as smooth as my bada phones (my bada phones has 1 ghz hummingbird, Galaxy S2 has 1.2 Ghz dual core exynos).

25. ilia1986 unregistered

Really? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uP83QGD9B0&feature=related You see peter - Android can be smooth as well. With the right rom and the right phone. Again - the price you pay for using Android is tweaking it - sometimes as little as nothing - and sometimes as much as trying out 20 custom roms one after the other in order to find the one which suits you best. That price is nothing compared to the ability of customizing your phone the way you like. Bada at least also has some form of customization - unlike iOS which has almost none.

in fact bada has more personalization options than both WP7 and IOS, only android has more personalization options than bada, but that might change after bada 2.0 is out. I'll have to wait untill i have the wave 3 before i can know that. Android can probably be smooth with custom roms, but i don't really think the average consumer has a clue on how to root an android. That's what the nerds like to do. bada is smooth and fast right out of the box ; )

27. ilia1986 unregistered

That's why the average consumer buys the iJoke or WP7 - and the smart people - get bada or Android phones - and get to customize their phones. I say to all - be smart - buy the right stuff.
