Also, I know the banner is terrible.

Yes, probably first half of November. At least for the Verizon version.

Linkhero1 10-18-2011 09:28 AM

Ahhh can't wait. Too bad it'll probably be Verizon time-exclusive for a while. I want to get my hands on it as soon as possible :(

iamvin22 10-18-2011 09:42 AM

must come to sprint

kokujin 10-18-2011 09:44 AM

Will this come to AT&T?

First!

Vyse The Legend 10-18-2011 10:01 AM

[QUOTE=kokujin]Will this come to AT&T?[/QUOTE]

Probably not officially. The GSM International version will support AT&T and T-Mobile 3G bands, though.

What does this mean?

Al-ibn Kermit 10-18-2011 10:03 AM

^You can buy it unlocked and use it on AT&T/T-Mobile.

It seems it will be a timed exclusive to Verizon but it would make sense that it would come to AT&T/T-Mobile by the holidays. Then you can get it for a subsidized price (~$200) with a 2 year contract.

[QUOTE=iamvin22]must come to sprint[/QUOTE]

Of course it will within..6 months. I doubt it'll have a wimax radio by then as that's when Sprint's LTE is being launched.

Yoshiya 10-18-2011 10:06 AM

[QUOTE=kokujin]What does this mean?[/QUOTE]
It means you could buy an unlocked phone that would work on the AT&T network, if you really wanted to spend that much upfront.

Good, I didn't want to shell out 600 bucks for a phone.

Vyse The Legend 10-18-2011 10:06 AM

[QUOTE=kokujin]What does this mean?[/QUOTE]

This means that you probably won't be able to get it subsidized from AT&T directly (if at all) But, you will be able buy it unlocked at full price, and it will work, once you pop in your SIM card.

HollovVpo1nt 10-18-2011 10:11 AM

You know, the 'high end'-ness of this device and the shape might overshadow a recently announed competitor...

GreenCyder 10-18-2011 10:14 AM

Looking forward to the announcements.

Are they just going to announce ICS? or make it available to download immediately after the event? Anyone know?

Really, that would suck, I held off on a GSII to get this phone.

[QUOTE=Copernicus]Yea the GS II has some serious competition finally.[/QUOTE]
Why would Samsung want competition with their own phone?

Opus Angelorum 10-18-2011 10:16 AM

Day 1, my GSII will be short lived.

I think Jtwo needs to redo the Android thread. [QUOTE=kokujin]Really, that would suck, I held off on a GSII to get this phone.

can i expect my htc sensation xe to receive this update this year as well?

Nexus Prime shall be my next phone! :D

Will we see something like this?

will buy when it hits fido here in canada.

J Tourettes 10-18-2011 11:13 AM

Is it wrong that I'm hoping that it's not as specced out as the GS2? Really don't want to be tempted to sell my GS2 at a loss and then put the money towards a Nexus Prime.

I still miss the vanilla android from N1...

Yes it's very very wrong. If it's less spec'd than the S2 I will be so disappointed I'll go and buy a 4S instead. And yes I am being serious lol.

The rumored specs outclass the GS2 in almost every respect (sans GPU, which is currently a non-issue given Android's still-fledgling gaming scene). The GS2 was this year's benchmark phone; the Prime, however, will set the tone for next year's crop of smartphones, much like the Nexus One did when it ushered in the first wave of 1GHz processors.

However, don't expect the Prime to remain the top-spec'd phone for long. The Nexus One was quickly overshadowed, and the rumored specs for the GS3 already leave the Prime in the dust. But, it's the best that it will get for vanilla Android, and that, to me, makes it completely worthwhile.

Sumidor 10-18-2011 11:23 AM

Was gonna get the iPhone, but I think i'm gonna go with this. So sexy.

When is the GS3 due to be released?

[QUOTE=nib95]When is the GS3 due to be released?[/QUOTE]

In Europe, I expect March/April. In the US, way too late.

Jake. 10-18-2011 11:27 AM

i only got my gs2 about a fortnight ago, but i guess every phone gets upgraded in the blink of an eye these days.

ITT Nexus Prime dead.

[QUOTE=Vyse The Legend]In Europe, I expect March/April. In the US, way too late.[/QUOTE]

I see. Still quite a way off, Nexus Prime will do for now provided the specs are decent. Just hope it's released in the UK soon and not much later.

Is this some type of joke or something?!

Hopefully the UI will get sharpened up and be a bit more clean across all apps/menu settings.

Probably my biggest gripe against Androids

Chesskid1 10-18-2011 11:30 AM

what will they prolly announce re:ICS? demo some features and a release date?

Bluemercury 10-18-2011 11:33 AM

So its exclusive to Verizon but that for US carriers, what about Europe??Vodafone?

kehs 10-18-2011 11:35 AM

The only thing that has been officially confirmed is that Samsung and Google are having an event about the future of Android.

For all we know they are announcing they are using each other over patent infringement.

I know that was an eternity ago in Internet time.
