This morning as I was sifting through all the Steve Jobs emails and articles I happened across a BGR article that was stating that Verizon was going to get an exclusive on the next Nexus Prime due out pretty soon.  I dismissed the exclusive part almost immediately as I am tired of exclusive rumors altogether and kept reading and looking at the specs. According to BGR,. the specs on the next Google flagship device named the Nexus, is pretty weak in all honesty. There is no way of course this device comes out with anything less than the new OS that will be called Ice Cream Sandwich. 9mm thin, TI OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 5-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel in the front, whoa, what? You are telling me that Google is going to allow this device to launch with a 5 megapixel camera and a 1.2GHz processor? I was a little suspicious of this and elected not to print it, Until now. 

GSMArena has come back this afternoon with another inside Google tipster with what I think are a lot more credible specs and information. They are stating that the Nexus Prime will launch with a 1.5GHz Exynos Processor which makes WAY more sense than the 1.2GHz stated earlier this morning. Also is expected that the chipset will have a dual core GPU from Imagination the PowerVR SGX543MP2 “or in other words, the same GPU found in the iPad 2 (and quite probably on the iPhone 4S as well).”

Also improved over this mornings specs is the camera. Not the 5mp shooter, but an 8 megapixel camera  with full 1080HD and improved sensor. Battery is also battery and coming in at 2050mAh. GSMArena is also claiming that the Nexus Prime will not only be CDMA (Verizon) but a dual mode just like the iPhone 4S GSM/CDMA.

I am going to have side with GSMArena here and say strike two BGR, because the specs released this morning are not the battleship caliber that the Nexus Prime should have and I think Google knows this and has delayed for the final launch of Ice Cream Sandwich. A device like this will certainly do it’s name justice, we welcome you Nexus Prime!

  1. The GSMArena specs are quite fitting for the Prime. The war is heating up and with the Prime being announced and Nokia set to possibly unveil the Ace it is of little doubt that regardless of what OS camp you fall under you will be very happy this holiday season.

  2. This is less speculative, an FCC filing for the phone in a GSM flavor that made its way through the FCC with T-Mo bands as well as AT&T:

    Typically it doesn’t take too long for a phone to show up on shelves once one of these FCC things show up. Man I’m dying for this thing, EDGE is really tearing the ass out of me, using my old AT&T Nexus One on T-Mobile. Actually it’s not that bad..

  3. Hey Smith let’s have a race, you and me, to see who can grab the next hot rumor regarding this phone coming to T-Mo and scoop the sucker. All right? Here, let me give you some resources so that this is fair. Guerrilla news aggregation. Can you stand the heat Smith?

    Firstly, use the Super Full Feeds for Google Reader Chrome extension, it’s awesome. Seriously. Also, use the Chrome Canary build channel, the most bleeding edge Chrome releases you can get which is important obviously as this is a race. You should probably do that first actually, then install the Chrome extension. While you’re at it, go into Chrome options, personal preferences and log it into your Gmail account, that way whenever you’re on a new computer and you fire up a Chrome installation and log it in it will sync it up with whatever extensions, options, form data and passwords so that it’s identical to what you had been using. Badass feature. Okay so maybe do this whole paragraph in reverse order.

    Next, do a Google News search for “Nexus Prime” “T-Mobile”.

    Scroll down to the bottom of the news search return, click the RSS link, subscribe in your google reader.

    For good measure, fire up Google Alerts, add one for “T-Mobile” “Nexus Prime” (quotation marks force the order of the enclosed words so that you don’t get an article that says mobile and later down the letter T), As It Happens for the frequency, the entire web, and notify you either by email or into your Google Reader whenever it gets a hit.

    Got it?
