    [Rumor] More Confusion for Samsung Nexus Prime Names; May Be 2 Different Phones


    This newest rumor regarding the Samsung Nexus Prime, or whatever it will be called, is tinged with possible truth and fiction, and seems to complicate thing all over again. The articles on both Droid-Life and TheDroidGuy were fairly confusing to disseminate, but we will give it a shot here. According to a report from TheDroidGuy, the Nexus and the Prime will actually be two different phones. Supposedly, one of their journalists was able to sit down with a Verizon Tester, that has been working with both the HTC Vigor and the Samsung Prime. (An interesting side-note is that the Verizon Tester indicated that the Vigor was the better phone.) Also, a different staff member for theDroidGuy was able to play with the HTC Vigor and the Samsung Nexus, at the same conference, but with a different person, determining that they were two different devices.

    Ultimately, what we were able to glean from the articles was the following, and much of it is speculative: (Please do not assume that what we consider any of this factual. For now, it simply is hearsay that is worth informing you about, because it could be accurate.)
    • There is going to be a Samsung Prime that is not a stock Android phone (will have a TouchWiz UI overlay)
    • The Samsung Prime is a different Samsung device from the Samsung Nexus, and will not be the first phone with Ice Cream Sandwich
    • The Samsung Prime is possibly a follow-up to the Droid Charge
    • The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the next Google phone
    • The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be coming to Verizon and will be the first phone to come with Ice Cream Sandwich
    • Neither device will have a physical home button
    • Samsung used the name Nexus Prime in a legal document in order to misdirect the press before the actual launch of the phones
    • The Samsung Galaxy Nexus could have TouchWiz (which seems unlikely - also, the two articles disputed each other on this point)

    None of this has been substantiated, nor confirmed in any way, but it definitely makes for some interesting discussion. Sound off in the forums what you think of this mess.

    We have been talking about this over in the "New Phone Rumor Mill" a bit... I agree with the droid-life article (i think it was) when he said that the only reason they think the Nexus devices will have a Sammy UI is because the test devices was actually running GB at the time. This supports earlier claims that ICS isn't quite "field-ready" and will be a last minute implementation onto the phone. I find it really hard tho believe a new OS is going to make it's big début with another UI on top of it.
    If you always seem to have drama in your life, you are probably the one causing the drama.
    If customer service representatives or restaurant servers always seem to be rude to you, you are probably the one being rude.
    If your computer always seems to be freezing up on you, you're probably doing something wrong.

    In my experience, drama begets drama, rudeness begets rudeness, and ineptitude begets ineptitude.

    One thing this could point to would be two devices, one for VZW (Droid Prime or whatever) that has Touchwiz, bloat, etc. and another phone that is the vanilla, ICS phone (Nexus Prime or whatever) that may or may not come to VZW.

    God I hope the latter is the one rumored to hit VZW in early November....

    According to kellex at droid-life, both are coming to VZW. the galaxy nexus will come first and it will be pure ICS, and then the Droid Prime, the successor to the Charge will come second and will have touchwiz.

    Kellex seems to be in the know and has seemingly confirmed the above happening, so that's good news

    That would be great - did Kellex indicate whether or not the Galaxy Nexus (ICS phone) would be LTE?
