    The amount of rumors surrounding the Nexus Prime is becoming unbearable, but hopefully this one is one of the correct ones. The latest rumor on the "first pure Google phone for Verizon" is that the device will be launching this November 3rd. This rumor comes from a tipster that told Phandroid of the date, and that it will be announced later this month before-hand.

    There you go folks, how does this sound to you?

    just like a member on here said. "they only released the BIONIC because people kept asking for it". i think they are more into the RAZR noting that they went ahead and bought some domains.

    All I can speculate about that is the Nexus Prime will get direct software updates from Google and the Droid Prime will get it from Verizion. Unless there is a hardware difference. One may have touchwiz and one maybe be vanilla too

    Some one told me that the Verizon Version will have Bloatware on it. I hope it is not true. But take it with a grain of salt.

    How many phones have you seen in recent years that Don't have at least some bloatware!?? Root easily fixes that kind of crap. I'm more interested in the phone living up the the hype and not falling short like the Bionic did with a lot of people.

    I'm just speculating. But I won't put it buy them. Someone has to pay for the Lucas trademark. It just gets passed on to the consumer somehow. Fingers crossed for a pure version.

    A "pure Google phone" would have the native wifi tether function available. I doubt Verizon will allow this. They'll hijack it force users to pay them for tethering.

    Did the bionic really do that well? I doubt it had any appreciable number of sales

    Scary thought....What if VZW forces everyone wanting this phone to pay for a tethering package?

    As for bloatware, does it matter if it's a pure google phone? It's almost enjoyable to delete useless system apps.

    I do understand the want for no bloatware, but this is a Nexus Dev phone which should have an unlocked bootloader. So I don't really understand the worry or complaining about it. If it comes with bloatware who really cares. Root it, which where all gonna do anyway, and flash stock andriod on it or one of the many many ROMS that will inevitably be available for it and problem solved.

    Haven't heard anything, but it's got to be doing pretty well, right? All the expansion of LTE and it's the first pretty beastly (despite what people on this forum say) dual-core LTE phone on VZW. Pretty decent promotion, too. It's not like the masses know about the upcoming phones that will put the Bionic to shame. There had to be a good number of people waiting for it, because the Bionic was all over phone threads I read on various non-tech forums.

    Is this actually true? Are the other nexus devices allowed carrier approved tethering for free while other phones are not just because its a nexus device? I don't think so but not sure. Tethering has always been "where your carrier allows". Google can't force a carrier to change their tethering policies.
