U.K. retailer puts the Google Nexus Prime on its site

U.K. retailer puts the Google Nexus Prime on its site
Earlier today, we reported that the Google Nexus Prime might actually be called the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, sporting a 4.6 inch screen. That might still be true, but U.K. online retailer Handtec has already listed the phone on its site as the Google Nexus Prime. No pricing or launch date was revealed, but a picture of the phone showed a sleek looking handset with a metallic bezel, and an edge to edge screen.

According to the site, the screen on the Google Nexus Prime is 4.6 inches of Super AMOLED HD delight with resolution of 720p. A 5MP camera captures video at 1080p and a 1MP front facing camera is also aboard. Under the hood is a TI OMAP 4460 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM. Of course, the phone is powered by Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. And yes, this model appears to offer a strictly pure stock Android experience.

It all adds up to quite an exciting blend of high-end hardware and software. Does anyone out there have a new phone on the top of their wish list? 

Thanks, Philip!

Too bad your iPhone processor is made by Samsung. Try again.

Lol tell me about it. The Nexus S had so many problems out of the box. Can't even make a call without it dropping or do anything without a Forced Close.

At least the iPhone 4 can MAKE a call unlike the Nexus S which drops every signal.

1)android browser is faster than iOS browser.. and it supports flash, you lose 2) they have basically the same apps at this point, except we get all the google greats where you get left overs from 2 years ago. integrated voice navigation, 3d turn by turn direction, soon zagat integration, and sooooo much more? check. 3) iOS holds the record for FASTEST OS HACKED in national hacking competitions, Android remains UNHACKED after 3 or 4 years of trying. you lose again. 4) GOOGLE updates their phones more often than Apple does, and with more features. You can talk all sorts of trash about carriers and manufacturers, but this phone here is a PURE GOOGLE phone. You lose, AGAIN 5) the iphone is STALE, out dated, tiny screened, and underpowered. You lose... AGAIN. :) 6) They are both easy to use, you just think apple is easier to use because it has no options. Options make it even easier to use in the long haul.. you still lose. 7) the iphone is nothing but a list of apps.. that is not intuitive, it is not nearly as functional as widgets and all the customizations of android (or even WP7.. or BADA lol). The interface is bland, boring, and again not intuitive.. you lose.. again. 8) I can keep this up too. :)

Frankly, when the_miz mentioned those 7 points, i thought he was talking about android.

if it were anyone but miz, i would have assumed so too. I keep wondering what mystery android device he keeps comparing his iPhone to, to make iphone look so much better? A T-mo Comet (id actually take the comet over an iphone..lol)? A generic phone on metro? Because it sure isnt any high end android thats been released since the i4.. thats for sure.

Thankyou remixfa. The world needs more people like you. This site especially. If only you were there when taco and miz were born - and before they got infected by iDisease. Miz and taco are the idiots who are shouting that the world is flat - with all the people hearing - and then comes the well educated scientist - and proves that the world is round.

"or even WP7.. or BADA" Agree that bada is much more customizable than IOS (and more than WP7 too). Having used WP7, when it comes to customizing WP7 and IOS are at about the same level.

Posts: 14605; Member since: Dec 19, 2008

no, WP7 is way more customizable than an iphone. The live tiles are pretty much widgets. you can get 100x more info off of looking at a customized WP7 phone's face than u can at looking at the iphones app list. I really like WP7, but I'm too used to having "more" with android that its hard to go to less. In a few major updates ill probably try it again.

In fact, the iphone and WP7 are at about the same level. The live tiles do not display any more info than the iphones apps. on the iphone app you can see how many missed calls, or sms you've got. Same with the live tiles, it displays how many missed calls or sms you've got. If there is some app like weatherbug that has a live tile, then i agree that, that displays more info than WP7, but with the IOS 5 notification bar, that might mean iphone has just as much customazation as WP7.

live tiles display a ton more info than an icon. are you sure u used to own a wp7 phone peter? lol. My HD7's live tiles did a lot more that display an icon, they displayed current information about what was being texted to me, happening on facebook, ect... and that was in WP7's early days. It must have gotten much better since then.

1. Flash is horribly slow and sluggish on Android, not even worth having. Plus it has a ton of security flaws and lol, Safari is 10x faster. Fail. 2. LOL, no. App Store has half a million apps, probably way more by now. Plus developers rather work and support Apple, hence why App Store gets more quality apps than the crap the Market gets. 3. Are you seriously this stupid here? Android is constantly hacked and rooted and made with malware and viruses unlike iOS. Anytime iOS has a security hole, Apple patches it up PDQ. 4. LOL, T-Bolt STILL does not have Gingerbread to this date and most of Google's updates are crap. Lol, this is way too easy. No point in continuing since you're wrong....as usual.

i'd love to walk through a Best Buy with you Miz. you'd have to admit there's nice things about Android if i made you really check out android powered devices.

1) Is that why android browsers load faster than iOS browsers, even with the flash turned on? lol find me a high end android device where the flash is slow and sluggish. 2) the app store has about 100k or less more apps than the android market. 99% of developers go for both markets, and they are both filled with crap and good apps. We still get all the google exclusives though which you will never get which are some of the most useful apps on the market. 3) find me proof. the only "stupid" one here is the idiot with the wrestling icons. There is malware on both OS's. Android's "malware" is from non market apps that no one downloads. Maybe u should stop reading the headlines of articles and actually read the meat of them.. if ur attention span goes that long.. lol. The last report said that 0.000005% of android users have been affected with malware. last I checked, that wasnt a big number. 4)The tbolt is NOT a Nexus device, is NOT a high end device, and is NOT part of this conversation. way to grasp at straws. Your initial comments were tied to THIS device.. a NEXUS device. If your too dumb to tell the difference between a NEXUS device and some middle/low end crap like the Tbolt then it makes you a bigger idiot than even i give you credit for. Your right, this is too easy. You almost never make a valid point as it is. This isnt like shooting fish in a barrel, this is like shooting suicidal fish that jump out of the barrel and cling to the muzzle of your gun and pull the trigger for you.
