    Leaked Best Buy & Amazon Ads Show Galaxy Nexus as Nexus Prime; Verizon Pic Disputes


    Is this a case of marketing folks not doing their research properly, or could the new Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus be actually called the Nexus Prime like original reports months ago suggested? Both Best Buy and Amazon have recently called the phone the Nexus Prime. There is a leaked Best Buy ad that calls the phone the Nexus Prime, and Amazon recently added the following to their wireless website, "Samsung Galaxy S II Nexus Prime 4G Android Phone (Verizon Wireless)." This is strange indeed that both parties would make the same or similar mistakes, although it's also additionally odd that Amazon is calling the phone the Galaxy SII Nexus Prime.


    Still, even though it is odd, we have seen carriers re-brand phones before, so it is possible. However, despite these interesting tidbits, it would appear that Verizon's internal web page used by indirect Verizon resellers to order their inventory of the phone disputes both of these ads and still calls it the Galaxy Nexus. Of course that could just be their internal system name for the phone since that is the original name from the manufacturer. It appears that the naming mystery of the first ICS device has returned for one last plot-twist.


    What do you guys think? Will it be the Galaxy Nexus, or the Nexus Prime? Do you care what the name is, and will we ever be able to find out if Bigfoot really exists? You decide!

    Samsung Galaxy SII Nexus Prime? What a horrible name.

    This is the Galaxy Nexus. Period. End of story. I think Samsung and Google know better than anybody else what the name of their device is.

    At this point I totally don't care what they call it. Just release it. I feel like I'm picking up a friend at the airport after his flight has been delayed...

    Look, just give me a call when you land and I'll pick you up in a few minutes.

    Nah, I say let me know ahead of time when you are going to be there, and I'll be there waiting for you to arrive.

    ...unless, the Nexus sprouts multiple variants (nexus prime = flagship & touchless, nexus touch = qwerty) which is expected.
