I amazed a charge 2 is already coming around the bend though...
Charge 2, will probably be announce at CES and released shortly after?
The newest article suggests that what we have been calling the Droid Prime is actually the Droid Charge 2 and will drop in November as well...
This is true, but will big red really release two similar Samsung phones close together? This just sounds a bit fishy. Maybe Verizon will sell the Charge 2 and Google will sell the Nexus (which will run on Verizon's network)? This is how the original nexus was, sold directly by Google, available to be used w/T-mobile. I don't think it worked out well for Google to do this, so I doubt this is the case, but I guess anything's possible until confirmed.
That's why I am holding out on my upgrade, my og droid is holding up just fine ... I like the taste of ICS over gingerbread!
ICS just melts in your mouth a lot better than gingerbread...:yahoo:
I'm suddenly in the mood for and ice cream sandwich with gingerbread as the outer parts and pumpkin flavored ice cream in the middle... mmmm, tastes like autumn....
Wow that's good news if it is true, and that'll be the phone i get (i returned my bionic after 2 days)...But that post #166 seems like Nov 3rd will be a great day haha
Just came across this thread and think I will follow it a while. I know it is all rumors but it is nice to dream, lol.
Have a D2 now and was thinking about upgrading to the D3. But now I see maybe a Jet in the future, may have to wait a while. I still like the physical keyboard and a lot of the new phones are touch screen. Always something better on the horizon after you buy a new phone. Just have to take a chance, lol.

:welcome:, glad to have ya following. You are right, there are a lot of nice things on the horizon, and there probably always will be... but the advice I usually like to give when contemplating a new phone and playing the "next best device" game is to think about two things:
1) How well is your current device supporting your needs and how much do you need a new device.
2) How ready are you to drop the kind of cash required to pick up one of these new devices.
If your current phone is treating you well, then waiting will only get you a better one in the future or a better price on a current one...
I agree with you about if your phone supports your needs. Mine does but do have trouble sometimes with passwords. Would be nice to have the extra row keyboard and a bigger screen on the D3, lol.

And many people are always worried about something better. I equate buying phones to buying a laptop/pc. Not very long after you buy it the one you got is outdated and if you keep waiting for something a little bit better you will never buy one.
Maybe a dumb example but you get my train of thought.

I assume the HTC phone coming to VZW (whatever it's called) will have an unlocked bootloader, but if the Samsung phone is modified for VZW, will that also be unlocked?
Basically, any of these phones would suit my needs, but I'd go for the one most likely to have active community development.
If the prime is a nexus device the bootloader must be unlocked.
Yeah, but if vzw gets a modified version and calls it "droid prime" or whatever, are they still obligated?
My bet is the Droid Prime (looking more like a Charge) will be locked and UI'ed over Gingerbread, the Nexus (Looking more like a SGS2/Nexus S) will be unlocked and Vanilla with ICS.
I do not want to sound like a baby but I might cry if they change the name AND lock down a Nexus device. It would be such a waste.
I don't think there is any danger of that
I'll be crying too if the unlocked nexus doesn't come to vzw, and they claim the droid prime is the equivalent device. I just can't see them releasing 3 phones of near equivalent specs in such a clustered time frame.
