    Whether it will be called the Samsung Nexus Prime, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime, or the Samsung DROID Prime, the newest rumor to tease us seems to indicate a November 3rd launch for the phone on Verizon. If this date turns out to be true, the fact that it will launch without any known delays will practically be a first for Verizon in quite some time. If you remember correctly, the Thunderbolt, the Droid Charge, and the Droid Bionic all were delayed to various degrees. Let's cross our fingers that this rumor turns out to be both true and accurate!

    I've got to stop looking at these Prime threads. I'm getting way too excited way too early. :reddroid:

    True, there is nothing that is constant but change. Oxymoron.

    I waited for the Bionic so I can wait a little longer for the Prime. If I don't like it I can go with the Bionic or possibly Vigor.

    [witty pun concerning the current ROM and custom memory script on my device]

    I am hoping this holds true. Perfect timing for my plan upgrade.

    I've had my OG Droid for almost 2 years, and this phone will be the one that makes me jump. I won't be looking for the next best thing for at least another 2 years, assuming it hold up as well as my OG. As long as the bootloader is/can be unlocked, the devs will put out roms that will keep my phone exciting for a long time, hence OG droid.

    True story. My outdated D1 and now my outdated DX are working well for me.

    If the rumors are true, this phone will blow the bionic out of the water..

    And if there is a chapter 2 that starts out with a delay, I'll be moving on to something else. I refuse to wait around for another device so I'll get something that is already out.

    If the specs to this phone are true including the huge battery...and if it performs as a nexus phone should...then only a phone can turn into a flying carpet will make me leave it.

    I've lost interest in the vigor since this.

    My OG Droid is barely hanging on.

    I want my next phone to have an HD screen and LTE. I think those 2 things will hold it over for 2 years. I was close to getting the Droid 3 because I do enjoy the physical keyboard. But I feel like in 6 months it will be more outdated than it should be after 6 months.

    I have 4G coverage at my home and my work so its worth getting a phone with it.

    But that is the "Nexus Prime"... there is a chance that Verizon is getting something different and "Exclusive": Droid Prime/Galaxy Prime/Galaxy Nexus Prime.

    NFC = Near Field Communication, like the ability to pay for gas from your phone, if I understand correctly... now if you already knew that and were asking what the "clip" part is... I'm in the same boat as you haha

    My gf got the epic 4g touch this weekend and I am in love with it. I wish this phone would have come to verizon. If the Prime is just like it but better screen and lte, it will be my dream phone and I can finally pull the plug on my 2 year old droid and destroy it and piss on it and bury it for pissing me off lately. It's slowing down and freezing and hanging more and more lately. I actually like the UI on the epic 4g touch but give me that or vanilla android and I will be happy!
