    Apparently, it has been confirmed that a talented graphic artist created the artistic rendering of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus pic that we posted last week. Here the artist added some more to it and created an even more interesting mockup. That's a pretty gorgeous phone, and his mockup should be pretty accurate based upon all the leaked info so far.

    Also, a clever person over at Droid-Life has done a fair bit of extrapolation to determine the dimensions of the device. Here's a quote from their story with the description,
    You can check out some more pics that were used in the extrapolation process at the source link below.

    Thanks for the tip, Liderc!

    Now that I look at the portrait, looks way to curved, whats the point of that.

    Maybe they are going after how a traditional home phone shape is ..

    i'm worried about the height now. Looks like it might be 5.26" and the bionic is 5". It's good that the screen size is bigger with 4.65" by getting rid of soft keys, but being quarter of an inch taller sux. I wish it was the same as bionic. we'll see how it actually feels in real life. if not....droid razr here i come.

    I don't care for the shape either. Of course, I don't care for thin phones to begin with, let alone curved. Thin phones are a problem to the extent that my past iPhone 4 and my current Bionic both live in an Otterbox Defender to add heft as well as protection.

    I think they should have made the Prime a 1/2" thick brick. With battery sized appropriately for form-factor. Going back to the old "brick" design is the only way we are going to see acceptable battery life in the future, the way phone tech is outrunning battery tech.

    I just don't get why everything out there has to be so damn "thin and light". I am not "thin and light" - and my phone shouldn't be, either. I can manage to carry around 6oz just fine, that you very much. Has the general population become so weak physically that 6oz is too much of a burden to lug around?

    Just out of curiosity, what is wrong with just getting a Bionic? I bought one, and couldn't be happier. It's not perfect, no phone is. Neither the Prime nor the Razr will be perfect, either. Mark my words.

    I only ask because I see so many threads about the Prime/Razr out there implying that the Bionic isn't even an option.

    Agree... whenever a new phone is released, and you buy it, consider yourself a beta tester.

    for me it was the screen. i tried to so hard to not let it bother me, but i couldn't. don't get me wrong, if the prime is too big, then i'll decide on the razr or back to the bionic or even the vigor. i didn't even make the vigor an option as htc's battery issues that i've seen in the past. even the charging (take out and plug back in all the time annoyed me).

    For me, the screen was a bit of a trade off; i'll admit. But it truly shines (if you will excuse the pun) at its intended use: extreme readability in brightly lit environments. I think in the end, pentile will be a technology much like DLP - you either love it or hate it. Unlike DLP (which gives me a headache), Pentile has grown on me.
