Tweeted Poetry Places Nexus Prime Release Date on Same Day as Death of Batman’s “True Father”

    A couple of tweeters reportedly were exchanging lines of poetry several hours ago, and the stanzas were suggestive of several tidbits about the rumored Google flagship phone for Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich–the Nexus Prime–especially the lines suggesting November 3 as the release date for the Nexus Prime.

    We’ve compiled the stanzas spanning several tweets from Tom Fleming (@tfleming223), who was exchanging poetry lines with “The Panda King” (@black_man_x) on Twitter:

    While things that go bump in the night, surely give you a fright,
    It’s all in good fun as I share treats and panda fun.
    So Instead of filling your belly with candies, jellies and other hollows eve fare,
    Perhaps your palate will cast a ballot, for an ice cream sandwich instead.
    With an internal date now set and LTE a sure bet
    Those that get Tim Cook’s new pet will be filled with green eyed regret.
    But wait you cry for what date can you buy?
    This the panda did shall share…
    Fore on the date Bruce Wayne’s true father did die; you shall in fact be able to buy in stores of red and black.
    But those who pay other masters don’t fret, over exclusive deals and bets
    For in many other favors you will get your treat
    Be they GSM or wimax radios inside, the nexus brand will ride world wide

    The most significant of the tweets was the reference to the launch date for the Nexus Prime and under which carrier the Google phone will be launched:

    Fore on the date Bruce Wayne’s true father did die; you shall in fact be able to buy in stores of red and black.

    The date reference points to November 3, the date of artist Bob Kane’s death. Kane (born as Robert Kahn on October 24, 1915, died November 3, 1998) is Batman’s “true father,” being the Dark Knight’s creator. “Stores of red and black” seems to allude to Verizon Wireless, which uses those two colors in its official logo.

    The poem, however, mentions that November 3 is an “internal date,” which opens up the possibility for changes in the release date.

    The lines also suggest LTE capability, Ice Cream Sandwich, and the potential to make future iPhone 5 (“Tim Cook’s new pet”) users fill up with “green-eyed regret.”

    Fleming’s lines also hint of the Nexus Prime’s availability in other channels, besides “stores of red and black,” and that there will be variants of the Nexus Prime also bearing GSM or WiMAX radios. The last line seems to hint of a simultaneous global release, rather than a gradual rollout around the world.

    Neither Google nor Samsung (who is rumored to be Google’s partner for making the Nexus Prime) has officially revealed any specific date for launching or releasing the Nexus Prime. Android Authority, however, has several posts about rumors of the Nexus Prime.

    We are not sure whether the poetic tweeters did base their poetic lines on insider information. But, we do know that a lot of people are on the lookout for the Nexus Prime. Are you one of them?
