    The new HTC LTE device and an unnamed Samsung LTE device are two eagerly awaited devices that just made it into Verizon’s systems. The picture above was leaked by Androidcentral showing the two new Android LTE phones called the HTC Thunderbolt, ADR6400, and the Samsung SCH-i520 are finally in the systems, which means they are coming soon.
    Now we all know what the HTC device is and what it looks like, but the Samsung device is a little harder. From the previously leaked pictures, this device resembles the Nexus S that’s currently running on T-mobile's 3G. If true, this means we finally have a device that’ll get first shots at all new Android software and ships with Gingerbread.

    Anyone excited with this leak? Which device would you like more? The Nexus S (if we are correct), or the Thunderbolt? Let us know.

    A tough call. I'd probably go with the HTC Thunderbolt, because I like HTC phones, but a Nexus S...WOW!

    Moto if not locked but the Thunderbolt looks tempting but if the Samsung comes out clean like the OG Droid and its Droid branded that would be a winner.

    ^^^ I agree, however I don't think Motorola will produce another vanilla android phone like the OG Droid. But if Samsung can deliver a nexus s with a micro SD slot with the added gingerbread os without touchwiz then I would seriously consider buying that over the thunderbolt, if and only if.

    this just just my personal opinion, but i dont think its the Nexus S at all. look up a picture for the SCH-i520 then look up a picture of the Nexus S. compare the earpiece, and the placement of the front facing camera on both....they're extremely different.

    kind of excited to see what comes out of this CES this coming week.

    I have a Nexus S for testing here and it's good. Personally the HTC is going to be a better device :)

    Engadget had the I520 a week or so ago on their site. It was only one pic but you could easily tell it's not the Nexus. This will be similar to nexus in specs but it will likely have touchwiz and gingerbread will prob come to it in August LOL

    I would take the HTC. I just love HTC phones so unless the Samsung is running stock Android, I would take the Thunderbolt.

    Any other info on upcoming devices that will be announced at CES? And hopefully this time HTC can have enough stock of the thunderbolt unlike the incredible and EVO

    If it really is an LTE Nexus S, that'd be sweet and i'd definitely consider it. But if it's more Samsung crap, i'll pass. I want updates in a somewhat respectable manner. Thunderbolt looks sweet.
