    I can get an upgrade with vzw right now, but waiting for these two phones because both are on my mind. But I don't know bc Bionic seems pretty sick, but so does the Nexus Prime, especially when it's gonna run on ice cream! If not these two, than I thought of Droid 3 or Droid X2...too many choices lol

    I guess how long you want to wait. Why do you assume Verizon will get the Prime? Hasn't gotten any nexus device before.

    ive heard the Photon on Sprint is the Bionic's brother phone. I kinda hope its not tho cus that phone is sick no doubt but boy is it thick like the Tb, I was hoping the Bionic would be thinner like the GSII but who know ya know...

    I have the OG now and 'was' waiting for the Bionic to drop but if Nexus is indeed coming to Verizon then all that might be out the window if we get an offical word...

    Personally, I would assume Verizon isn't getting the Prime until otherwise stated. Verizon has never received a Nexus device so I would go with the Bionic. You could always sell it later if Verizon did get the Prime.

    i don't know why you'd think a LTE phone will be as thin as a 3g phone.. Do you think samsung would've released the gigantic charge if it were possible for them to make a slimmer phone?

    The bionic will probably be THICKER then the photon unless some magic has happened that we aren't aware of, like an awesome rev 2 LTE radio that's going to change the world.

    Probably worse battery life too.

    but who knowwwsss

    I think the reason people think the nexus prime is coming to Verizon is because it is rumored that it will LTE. this doesn't necessarily mean it has to be on Verizon though because AT&T is switching to LTE and the nexus prime can very well be the phone that introduces their brand new 4g network. but im hoping the nexus prime is Verizon I feel like Verizon deserves a nexus phone the only one we have gotten was the OG Droid which was kinda like a nexus phone being that it was vanilla and google worked with motorola on it.

    yea I've read that too but im hoping it gets introduced on Verizon because I will be the first one to get that phone. especially if its sporting that SUPER AMOLED HD screen supposedly having a 720p screen resolution which is just ridiculous.

    I hope the Prime comes to Verizon, but I don't trust rumored release dates. People say October, we're likely to see it in March. I'm getting the Droid or the GSII when one is available.

    best bet is that Oct is the announcement, with release to follow - my guess is Nov or Dec. but, Q1 of 2012 is entirely possible, as well - i'm just hoping for later this year.

    I don't know how credible this guy is but people seem to trust him. He removed "unconfirmed" from his original post.
