Samsung Nexus Prime Seen Roaming The Halls Of Verizon?

Newest development on the Nexus “Prime” situation, is tipping towards it possibly being Verizon‘s first Nexus device. A tipster over at Techno Buffalo has stated that Samsung is shopping their newest Nexus device to Verizon, and that the device has been seen at Verizon HQ. This is what we have been waiting for, and what so many people have been begging for. If Verizon will loosen up, and allow for an easily unlockable device on their network, then we might be in some serious business.

We have heard similar info from our sources, and now that we are starting to see specs surface, we will have to hope that it holds water for now. So far, we know the device will run Ice Cream Sandwich, have a reported 4.5″ 720p Super AMOLED HD screen, and rock an OMAP 1.5 GHz processor. Definitely the type of device that would start making Verizon look like a good guy in the eyes of potential Android customers.

If Verizon gets the Nexus, who is throwing their current device on the cool pavement and walking into their nearest Verizon store?

    Me! Me! Me!  I just recently water damaged my Droid2 (a warranty replacement for my OG Droid), and I’m stuck using a crappy-assed Storm.  I have been waiting on the Bionic since January, and it looks like it won’t we worth the wait.  But I will make do with this p.o.s. until October and save my upgrade!  PLEASE don’t screw this up, VZW.

    I’m currently on the OG Droid and I will definitely get the Nexus Prime if it comes to Verizon.

    I’m wondering if anyone could answer a question of whether I’m eligible for an upgrade (or will be by October).

    I last upgraded in January 2010, from one feature phone to another. This March, I transfered my line to the OG Droid that my dad had we he upgraded to the Droid 2.

  • If Verizon gets the next Nexus, I’ll be getting that

  • This phone has the excitment I wanted to have for the Bionic… If it’s slated to drop this year FOR SURE, I will hold off on the bionic and get this phone no questions asked.

    I just p a i d $21.87 for an i P a d 2-64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasonîc Lumîx GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS.I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.
    Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://bit.ly/nhyU7K

  • I’ll ditch AT&T and become a Verizon customer again if this happens. 

  • Since Verizon is FINALLY offering Nexus phones, I’ll wait for the Motorola one with a keyboard. {{-_-}}

    Things needed yet not announced on this phone spec-wise.  FFC, notification light, dual LED flash.

  • Everyone below me is gay…

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • whats so good about this 1.5 ghz omap processor , wouldn’t samsungs exynos at 1.5 ghz out preform the omap? i mean the galaxy s II destroys every other phone in any bench mark and overall speed. why hasn’t samsung been pushing this processor?

  • I wish to express my appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this type of setting. Just after searching throughout the the net and finding proposals that were not beneficial, I thought my life was well over. Living without the presence of strategies to the issues you have solved by means of your short article is a crucial case, and those that would have badly damaged my entire career if I had not discovered your website. Your good training and kindness in maneuvering all areas was useful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a thing like this. I can at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for the skilled and result oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to endorse your web blog to anyone who will need counselling on this situation.

    If Verizon gets a Nexus I’ll be saying “Goodbye Moto”…

  • Taylor Davis

    I’m leaving Verizon after 2 years and a f$#ked up data plan split.  Screw Verizon and their big red horse they stand on. I’m going to Sprint and the Nexus S.

  • I want to convey my appreciation for your generosity for men and women who really need help on this concept. Your real dedication to getting the solution around ended up being remarkably powerful and has always empowered employees just like me to realize their desired goals. Your personal valuable help means a lot to me and far more to my colleagues. Many thanks; from all of us.

    omg you people still bitching about your OG droid are pathetic. If you really are struggling to use the phone after its shown its age go do something about it than make a self pity post about how long you’ve been waiting for a true successor to the og droid. I sold my og for $100 and bought a DX for $150. Best investment ever for $50 more which will likely make selling the phone easier than trying to sell my OG 6mo later. Yeah i felt like i couldnt use the on screen keyboard on the og but with a bigger screen on the DX it doesnt create a problem at all, i would even say the WPM on a onscreen keyboard is higher.

    tl:dr stopping bitching about the og droid on every new phone being released and go do something about it.

    • David Brown

      Who is bitching about their OG Droid? I see people saying they still have one and are waiting for something they see as a true upgrade before doing so. I don’t see anyone bitching though. Besides you.


        you all bitching about a phone that were just good because it did not have competition in verizon when droid x came out it destroyed

    • Guest

      you have to realize that people owning the og droid are geeks that maybe does not have a job to buy another phone that is why they still holding to them. They still comparing about bigger screen better ram and more speed and they say og droid its better than the x nothing its better than the droid x from moto untill now droid 3 and droidx2 better specs equal better sorry stupid droid owners


      That’s why i had to tell this dummy 1bad69z28 to give his ancient og droid to his grandmother he does not stop crying about how great og droid is makes me laugh

    Let’s hope its pricing is not bloated like the Bionic.

    9 months of waiting for that thing, and it will still be crippled by blur, locked down, on a tiered plan, unless you use your upgrade from a unlimited one, and they have balls trying to gain another hundred out of us on top of the highest plans ever.

    I call – R A P E.

    So, let’s face it, go Prime.

    Prime, no pentile, no blur, and I’ll wait to see if it gets unlocked.

    Besides enjoying it, it sends a tiny message to moto and vz…

    • Ab gar

      I’m pretty sure it’ll be a pentile display since all other samsungs are.
      I just home that the the 720p resolution will help take away all those boxy pixles.

      I guess I’m lucky, I’m grandfathered in on the unlimited for now anyways, but still, how many go over the 2 gigs a month? I used internet every day for 8-10 hrs solid a day and haven’t hit 2 gigs yet.

  • Djstar2k2

    Alright so after my incred, my droid x and my thunderbolt i have to buy the vigor and prime. Check. lol

  • if those specs are to be believed…..i’m all in (especially if the ‘Prime’ name holds. That’s just awesome). Well, as long as it hits this year yet. If not, I’ll still pony up for the Bionic more than likely. I’ve waited too long NOT to get it.

  • Anonymous

    I need a keyboard… it can’t succeed the OG D1 without HAVING A KEYBOARD COME ON.

    Oh yeah, and LTE.

  • Leec136

    “I” “I” Captain!!!

  • I would drop a lot for a pure vanilla nexus ICS phone on Cliffords LTE bandwagon.. and I’m sure it would last way more than the 6months phones are lasting now before looking else ware

  • DaBruise

    son of a gun i was all set to buy the Bionic and now im torn.

  • ScottfromGA

    see that?  see that stain?  yep….I just came to this news…..hard too.

  • Anthony

    No Verizon is not getting this device because it is to good to be true.

  • Steve Gehrman

    I’ll be waiting in line.  Samsung GS II is already obsolete, and it’s not even out yet. 

  • Mandorawk

    I’m glad my upgrade is on sept 24 by then, hopefully we’ll know about these other phones. I was gunho about the bionic but definitely waiting until the dust settles to see which one will be my Next phone. Hope the nexus lands on big red just hope it’s LTE, and kellex is that 1.5 single core? Hope you forgot to put dual core in there

  • Anonymous

    Nexus prime here I come (if it has LTE)

  • looks like this will likely win me over and i can stop longing for the galaxy S II to hit the market.

  • Jason Purp

    I would buy this as soon as it came out, without a question… if I had the money.
