    Droid 1 was not considered to be a "pure google" experience, as the fella above me pointed out the Nexus' are the only "vanilla" devices released. Didn't get either of them, more than likely we will never see the Prime on VZW.

    I'm not sure why you guys think the D1 wasn't pure Google. But additionally, the Xoom was pure Google.

    And the reason people believe the Nexus Prime is coming to Verizon is because 2 sources have claimed that it's definitely coming.

    I guess the reason why I'm losing interest is that, coming from a DX, I no longer feel this phone is worthy of locking in 2 more years and spending $300+. The improved specs are nice (less the screen), but at this point the performance of my DX is very satisfactory, especially with all the 2nd init roms now. It would be small jump in performance at a large cost, not to mention this thing probably won't get root for a while, let alone the dev support the DX currently has. LTE would be nice since it's in my city, but if I want it that bad I'll just guy buy a used Thunderbolt for $200.

    I know everyone says you can wait forever for the next best thing, but the next best thing is subjective. If I had an OG Droid the Bionic would be a worthy upgrade, but as a DX owner, I can wait a little longer for the next best thing.

    Ummm, well the Xoom was was pure Google, the 1st 3.0 device and launched on Verizon. Verizon never had an Apple until a few months ago, Sprint never had a pure Google device until 2 months ago. AT&T just got their first Google phone. Google made the Nexus for T-Mobile because it is GSM, which is theoretically better than CDMA, and is the global standard. They probably didn't choose AT&T because they didnt want to compete directly with the iPhone yet. Now that the iPhone has spread to 2 carriers, Google is also expanding Nexus. Its come to 3 major carriers with only Verizon left. Google is saving their new flagship phone for q4 2011 to use the most advanced data technology in the world, LTE, which is becoming the new global data standard. It might come to att also, but I fully expect it to come to Verizon.

    The D1 wasn't pure Google because it had VZW bloatware like Visual VM, Moto's calendar app and the Amazon MP3 store that couldn't be deleted. It was very close to vanilla though, except it dud have a locked (but not encrypted) bootloader that had to be cracked.

    A question about this leaked schedule?

    Malvado,

    A question about this leaked schedule. If the Samsung Stratosphere is the 4G Verizon version of the Epic, then why is the Samsung Galaxy SII not on the list?
    Thanks

    I have never said it was Verizon's version of the Epic.

    Both bbcrackman and Miami1683 are saying the Samsung Stratosphere is the Verizon version of the Epic?

    So, if they are correct, why is the Galaxy SII not on the leaked list?

    Aah ok. Well if they can prove it with a reliable source, then all it is right now is speculation. :)

    One of the owners where I work has been walking around with a SGII his business partner picked up overseas and I recognized it instantly and tried to pin him down to ask about it but he just kinda flashed the screen at me and confirmed that's what it was and moved on (imagine Larry David on redbull and that describes his personality to a T).

    Anyway, the phone is sexy as hell.. and I say that thinking most of these leaked superphone pics make them all seem the same. I hope they get the thing out here soon and find a way to cram a LTE radio without altering the form.
