    Previously, we shared with you a rumor regarding the potential next Google Nexus Flagship device. Today, we have more rumors that shed more light on the enigmatic device. The first thing is that the device will most likely be made by Samsung, and will be Google's Flagship device. Additionally, the phone may be dubbed, the "Nexus Prime", and will come with a "Super AMOLED HD", and the previously mentioned Ice Cream Sandwich/Android 4.0. Furthermore, the story from BGR confirms their own earlier report that the device will come with the TI OMAP4460 processor.

    Interestingly, the new details come with an additional angle to the story. That is that this next Google Nexus successor may come at the head of a big marketing push of exclusive Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich halo devices, all launching around the same time from multiple carriers. It would appear that Google may be preparing for an all-out war with Apple, and may use this as a counter-attack to the release of the iPhone 5 in the Fall. A massive release of Ice Cream Sandwich exclusive devices across multiple carriers could be a powerful punch to Google's nemesis.

    Why do people go so crazy over devices with O/S's that noone has tested, or barely have seen for that matter... While I agree that historically, Google newer versions have never disappointed... GB is till slowly rolling out.. What will ICS do for me?

    Sorry, did not mention while I welcome a newer version of Android... im not trying to hate, but I cant understand the NEED to have it this very second. All the newer devices will be upgradeable... so why so crazy about nexus pre loaded with ics?

    With as fast as phones have been coming out with new software and upgraded processors and ram, i'm kinda with you on this one. While i do enjoy the way they are getting updates to the devices and OS's done, a phone i pick up today will be outdated within 2 months almost. So at this point i just picked up a decent phone and will wait until it plateaus out alittle come early next year.

    My reasoning is,i want a pure google phone and timly updates and no other phone/carrier are gonna give them 2 us as quick as google.i mean look @ the nexus on sprint-running 2.3.4-there r phones thats been out longer and still waiting 4 gb.
