    They call that phone the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (well the title anyways, video says prime) on bgr. I don't think there is any certainty with either of the phones.

    Samsung Galaxy Nexus caught on video

    Engadget reporting that Samsung and Google has officially postponed the event for the 11th; device and software not ready they both agree. Engadget

    Nothing about the software/hardware not being ready. I think this is more due to recent events...

    This is a nexus s with the back lights off the front buttons. That's why the bottom of the phone is so large. Also, he turned the phone on with the power button on the top, which we know is not true to Samsung's own release photo.

    As for the phone release being delayed, i think Google and Samsung dont want to feel like jerks, releasing a phone that destroys Apple's entire mobile market right after Steve Jobs died.

    You are correct, somehow when I first read it, I misinterpreted it.

    Noticed an inconsistency with this video and the image/video for the now postponed event. The device shown in the Samsung video has the power/sleep/unlock button on the side, this guy locked the phone pressing the top left part of the phone. Or maybe it was with his index finger on the side? Aaaaah, I can't tell.

    naw, placement of his thumb after turning it back on looked like it came from directly on top

    it seems that the event on the 11th was rescheduled so that it wouldnt be overshadowed by Steve Jobs' funeral.

    this is not the Nexus, this is some prototype that someone decided to show off, IMO.

    Agreed but the camera app did open pretty fast. It was practically instantaneous.
