According to a rumored source at BGR, the real reason Verizon passed up the Samsung Galaxy S II was because they will be exclusively getting the Samsung Droid/Nexus Prime in October. If this is true, that actually makes a lot of sense. Why carry another Samsung phone that would compete directly with an exclusive flagship like the Droid Prime?
Apparently, under Verizon this new device, with model number SCH-i515, will be called the Droid Prime instead of the Nexus Prime. Furthermore, it is rumored that the phone will be the first phone to come with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. Additionally, BGR's source said, “Verizon doesn’t think the Samsung GALAXY S II will be competitive with the iPhone 5 when it launches.”
