I guess mostly just annoyed that Verizon is late to the party with a Nexus device. The OG Droid, which I'm still rocking is the closest Verizon customers have ever come to a Nexus device. If the Prime turns out to be a Droid instead of a Nexus, lets just hope Verizon gives it to us like the OG - vanilla and bloat free (wait, Verizon and bloat free, that's an oxymoron right?).
At least it's Samsung, and will be easily rooted.
Ignorant question here but since this will hopefully be an open dev phone does that mean that it will receive exclusive apps faster than others. An example would be Netflix app, how a lot of the lock down phones didn't get them until later.
You may be missing the point of a Nexus device. They're essentially the latest and greatest hardware picked by Google to be used to showcase their latest os (ICS). The bonus for us and dev's is that they're unlocked (so we can flash roms or do whatever) or we can leave them stock and receive our updates directly from Google. Lots of options.
actually, my main purpose in posting was this, from the "fwiw" category: New Samsung Verizon Device Hinted at by Samsung Support? - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog
