Before you go and get too excited by the headline, make sure you take a healthy does of salt when digesting this next sentence. The Samsung Prime just may be the first Nexus device to come to Verizon.
Verizon users have sat on the sidelines, patiently waiting for a Nexus device to use on their network of choice for quite some time. TechnoBuffalo is now reporting that the third time may be the charm for America’s largest carrier. According to a new report from the Buffalo, a device known as the Samsung Prime has been floating around Verizon’s internal testing grounds. Not only do the names line up rather nicely, but the Samsung Prime’s rumored specs are identical to that of the Nexus Prime’s. We’re still looking at a 720p screen resolution and, of course, “pure Google” Ice Cream Sandwich firmware.
Thanks to more confirmation from a rumor out of the Korean Electronic Times, we’re pretty sure the Nexus Prime will see an October release. The Nexus S is already available on T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T, so it wouldn’t be too surprising to see the next Nexus finally make an appearance on all the major carrier’s in the US.
How about it Verizon users? Excited?
