I am surprised Samsung is making the new Nexus phone and not Motorola.

Edit: Wow the Nexus Prime is going to be a big phone, nice to see them upping the res too.

Prime won't be for awhile I figure.
iPhone 4S isn't a disappointment. I don't know why everyone says it is. The only reason it's a disappointment it's because it's called the iPhone 4S instead of iPhone 5. This coming from an Apple hater. I'll make my opinions in another dedicated thread so I don't jack this thread.

Nexus Prime is good, but it's Verizon exclusive for the time being. I'm more interested in Ice Cream Sandwhich!

I'm not saying its a disappointment I'm just saying the whole release of it causes backlog of other devices as they don't want to compete and apparently some companies are doing it to say farewell to jobs.

Crap. Definitely drooling over the Nexus Prime. Unfortunately I JUST got my bloody Nexus S and even ended up switching over to Koodo, so there's not going to be any subsidy for me when it's released. DOH!

Won't be seeing it through Canadian carriers I'd say for awhile. Probably gonna have to buy it outright state side first.

I think Bell's going to pick up the phone first (since they always get the latest phones first, it seems), and then maybe Rogers to promote the LTE networks in Vancovuer and Toronto.
