    I think the picture pretty much says all here. The folks over at Droid-Life got their hands on a picture from one of Verizon's internal computers of the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus. And since that's the name in Verizon's system, that's probably what it's going to be called. As you all can see, it's confirmed to be a 4G device so it looks like it will be a Verizon exclusive until the GSM version is released to other carriers. The only negative seems to be that this will not be a world phone....which is sort of what we already knew since a GSM version passed through the FCC. I guess the world travelers might be left out with this. So does this get you excited for October 18th or what!?

    It eases my paranoia a little of another delay...

    I will get excited when I see an official release date

    I'm back to using my OG again. After having the Droid 2, Droid Pro, and Droid X in addition to the OG, the OG is still by far my favorite. If this new nexus wasn't coming out, I would most likely just continue to use the OG. :)

    I hope this phone even half lives up to the hype, I would think if there are a lot of bugs we could very well be seeing an Occupy Samsung protest.

    No world phone and no sd card are bummers but this is still at the top of the heap with the Razr close behind. I hope vzw doesn't pooch this by not making the phone a pure Google experience.....

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

    Is this part of the Nexus line ? Sounds more like a phone from the Galaxy line , what if this isn't the pure Google Nexus device that will launch with ICS ?

    I still use the of Droid 1 and I was waiting on the bionic that Motorola and Verizon was building up to be the phone of al phones. Then they release that pill of crap with all the bugs and things they knew good and well that was wrong with it. I don't care if the razor is the baddest Phone ever, I'll never buy another thing from Motorola! You guys can say what you want and I know it's about making money but you don't crap on the people that you want to make money from!! It's not like they didn't have it long enough to get all that worked out first.So if this galaxy nexus isn't what they say it is then I'll just keep using what I have until one comes out worth having for two years.

    Again, that's the problem with all of the "returned my bionic for the next big thing" threads, there aren't enough "I have a bionic that has zero issues and is still a powerhouse of a phone" thread! Anyway you try to cut it the DB is the first phone that had all of the good features rolled up into one and will last anyone who gets it for the duration of their contract. I'm just not getting the Moto crapped on everyone part, from my personal experience. But everyone has their own likes and dislikes, right?

    But I am still intrigued about this phone being released, whenever it finally does. I always do the yearly upgrade anyway and if this phone lives up to all the hype that has been surrounding it, then I don't mind waiting awhile for them to work out all of the inevitable bugs it will have too. Or maybe by then it it will be the Galaxy Nexus 2 or 3 or something!

    My overclocked, Gingerbreaded OG Droid went from 6:30am-10pm yesterday and still had 50% battery remaining. Gonna miss it!
