More Nexus Prime Details Marching In, Wi-Fi Certification This Time

August 26, 2011

The infamous Samsung GT-I9250 quietly passed through Wi-Fi-certifying authorities for its seal of approval yesterday. This very same Samsung handset caused quite a stir when details about it appeared in a controversial leaked Samsung roadmap, which listed it as the only upcoming Samsung smartphone with Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).

Being the only ICS-bearing Android wonderphone on the list, the almost-unanimous verdict of speculators and rumor mills was a loud and clear: “It’s the Google Nexus Prime!”

There’s a Kind of Hush

Samsung’s lips are tightly zipped as far as the Nexus Prime is concerned. But, if it was any clue, Samsung did try to quiet down the bees that passed on the leaked roadmap from one hive to another. The move only created further suspicion that the list does contain something juicy–and Samsung didn’t want to preempt any official media stunts that it has on its drawing board.

As the days pass by, the fog surrounding the Samsung-is-making-the-Nexus-Prime rumor slowly lifts. The latest potential bombshell–if the sources are authentic–is Samsung’s own legal department’s implicit admission of two things: the Nexus Prime is being primed, and Samsung is doing the priming.

There’s a Kind of Bustle

Even Korean sources tell of tales of hearing Samsung’s phone mill grinding fast to catch up with the rumored debut of the Nexus Prime in October. Korean carriers have also been reportedly readying their red carpets, horns, and confetti in preparation for the Nexus Prime’s first and official public appearance.

While all of those are happening, the Nexus Prime’s shadow appears briefly at Verizon, which led a lot of people to believe that the shadow’s real owner is coming to Verizon.

Ice-Cream-Sandwich-Flavored Dreams

No doubt, the Google Nexus Prime is in many people’s dreams and in many of Android’s competitors nightmares, simply because the Nexus Prime’s reputation of power overwhelming precedes it. Its rumored specs will crush its chief competitor’s rumored specs as the sole of your shoe crushes a cockroach. That is power overwhelming, based on rumor overwhelming. The prophets have spoken: the Nexus Prime is not primus inter pares–the first among equals. It will simply be the primum–the first, no equal.

Abilities Overwhelming

Here’s the litany of the Nexus Prime’s praiseworthy rumored abilities:

  • Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (with its famed 180% increase in performance over Android 3.x Honeycomb)
  • 4.65-inch (other sources say 4.5-inch) Super AMOLED Plus (or even HD) touchscreen
  • Texas Instruments OMAP 4470 (or 4460) dual-core processor clocked anywhere between 1.5 GHz and 1.8 GHz
  • 1280×720 HD display resolution
  • at least 1.0 GB of RAM
  • at least 32 GB of internal storage

Alas, however, no word has been spread regarding the Nexus Prime’s battery. So, we cannot sing praises of the Nexus Prime’s battery performance yet.

Which Android smartphone’s hymn are you singing these days?

    I’m not seeing anything thus far about expandable memory. The Nexus S I don’t believe came with an expandable micro SD card slot. Is this the new trend for Google/Android flagship phones?

      we don’t know a lot things but a flagship without expandable memory? impossible for me

    ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!
    they can hear and see what your visually thinking

    the reason alot of asians have completely expressionless faces, only associate with asians and dont associate with non asians very much is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read read minds, if all over a billion asians were to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non asians, associate with non asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then alot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they dont like or find astonishing or funny, and if they were all to associate with non asians alot more there would be alot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those other people think things they dont like, so they only associate with asians so there wont be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place

    think about it, its not normal how alot of them act, and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
    every single asian on the planet is hiding their mind reading abilities, they will lie about having mind reading abilites to the death!
    because they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
    thats why nobody knows about it!

    try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around asians, and try looking for asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they dont like, find funny or astonishing
    it still happens despite a large number of them having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen alot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, its not uncommon!

    i know this sounds crazy, impossible, and completely unbelievable, BUT IT ISNT CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE

    you have to spread the message!!!
    the world has to know about this!!!!

    What ever happen to making the Nexus phone line across the board on the cell carriers?

    From what has been leaked so far the prime looks pretty good. I am a little disappointed in the Bionic, more like ironic at this point. and if the Sammy is as good as it seems it will make the bionic look moronic!
