    Me too. Truss may have his hands full, but he did ask for it :D. So now we can let Truss push the buttons here. How does that sound Shadez? ;)

    Sounds better than me trying to merge 2 threads with the same title together again.. :)

    But in all honesty, Trust did a great job, without any mod powers, restoring the the original posts.

    Truss, something got screwed when they merged our threads? Sorry for the inconvenience, I hope it wasn't my fault! I like the new format though, very nice work once again Bro!

    Some more news on the Prime: Exclusive: Samsung “Prime” Is Nexus Phone Headed To All Carriers » Android Phones, Android Tablets, News, Tech, Gadgets And More, Thedroidguy

    Hints to Late October, early November launch (as we know). Some processor and camera confirmation. This is the first "hands-on" I've seen with the Prime (although I could be missing something). Also note that this was NOT running 4.0 as it is not ready yet. Still good that the leaks are coming full blast. It means we are getting close!

    I see you have the BGR link listed referencing this, but you may want to mention the other rumored model number just in case. SCH-i515.

    Also, the latest rumor from Phandroid. Not sure how much I buy this story though.
    Edit: Sorry, link similar to Patriot95. Still skeptical, but hopeful :)

    I never thought about the prime having a single capacitive/physical button, either none or all four would seem the proper design of an ICS device. Rumors that cause concern...

    *edit*
    And if the prime has a single navigational type button shouldn't it be back as this is the most commonly used key in my opinion.

    Yeah, makes me think iPhone. I don't want to think iPhone when I look at my Prime.

    Exactly, less buttons equal less function.
