    [Rumor] Verizon Droid Prime Time! Exclusive in Oct; The Real Reason No SGS2



    According to a rumored source at BGR, the real reason Verizon passed up the Samsung Galaxy S II was because they will be exclusively getting the Samsung Droid/Nexus Prime in October. If this is true, that actually makes a lot of sense. Why carry another Samsung phone that would compete directly with an exclusive flagship like the Droid Prime?

    Apparently, under Verizon this new device, with model number SCH-i515, will be called the Droid Prime instead of the Nexus Prime. Furthermore, it is rumored that the phone will be the first phone to come with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. Additionally, BGR's source said, “Verizon doesn’t think the Samsung GALAXY S II will be competitive with the iPhone 5 when it launches.”

    Don't forget to check out our DroidForums Droid Prime Forum @Droid Prime. Also, we now have a dedicated sister-site for the Droid Prime. You can find it @PrimeForums.com!

    Thanks for the tip Arkbird!

    I've been seeing mention of it being called the Droid Nexus as well. If VZW really must have branding, however silly it may be, just do it. Its my turn to get a bleeding edge developer device. (not to mention the htc magic)

    Had been considering the Bionic but... Is this beast worth waiting for? How is the support for bases/chargers w/this company? Never had this manufacturer. I have stuck w/Moto and HTC. I have the Thunderbolt but am a little disappointed w/it.

    I think this is absolutely worth waiting for. Samsung makes some very nice hardware. I currently have the Fascinate, which is a very nice phone (as long as you've rooted & modded it). But this one will blow that away!! Hoping the rumors are true....
