    According to a report from AndroidPolice, one of their reliable sources was able to dish out some details on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Supposedly, they have been able to confirm both the specs of the device and its actual name. Here's a quote from their article with direct details,
    They went on to elaborate that it is entirely possible that any conflicting reports about a phone called the Prime, could still be accurate, but instead are simply referring to a completely different phone. Of course, we shouldn't completely trust anything, until the 18th/19th of October when we hear the final details straight from the horses mouth. (Even that date is just an unconfirmed rumor at this point.) <Sigh> What ever happened to reliable leaks? ;)

    worse is a loose term there, they are both awesome phones but the other set of specs floating around are pretty amazing.

    I can handle losing 3MP on the camera if the hardware is the same in both and kick ass. I can handle an OMAP over an Exynos if that means that it will play better with 4gLTE and that we get it over a month sooner. As far as battery size, I haven't seen the same sized rumored twice so I'm not even going to speculate on that.... I think I'm forgetting one of the other differences....?

    On the whole, I have no problem with those specs. The only thing I wonder about is will the full internal memory cause any potential issues with rooting and ROM's? All of my other phones have had SD Cards so that has never been a consideration. If it doesn't cause a problem with that, I absolutely have no problem with the 32gb memory being entirely embedded. I hardly ever pull my 16gb card out of my Inc 2 so that size would be a non issue for me.

    True, what if you wipe to flash a new rom and the whole SD gets erased. That would be a huge fail.

    I believe I've heard pretty good on the battery issue regarding Samsungs. Course coming from my HTC, that's all relative. Just about anything is better than what I deal with now. LOL

    I hope so. One of the reasons I stay away from iPhones is the lack of a swappable battery. Much asI love the look of this phone, hoping the battery is up to snuff combined with the lack of an SD slot is a bit of a downer. But I'm not turned off completely yet, by far. Although I'm still waiting for more news on the Vigor's release to materialize...

    Boo on the no SD card. I can probably absorb that lameness if the rest of the device is bangin'. If not looks like the HD/Razr is just around the corner!

    Even though 32gb is more than enough storage, I'm not too thrilled about losing the memory card, just because.

    I have heard people complain about the iPhone batteries. My wife's iPhone 4 actually has one of the best batteries I've ever seen. Thing last all day with no problem at all and her constantly on it.

    Yeah, the custom ROM's and rooting with no SD strikes me as problematic. I could probably live without, but still...

    I wonder if Bill Parcells is part of the advertising campaign.
