Which.... ironically, I'm still rooting that the Nokia delivers, but who knows.... I stilll don't trust those leaked speaks.

My phone update isn't till July 2012 so I'm guessing it'll either be the this, the Galaxy S III, or the next Nexus phone. Whichever hits AT&T.

That razr looks like shite, I just saw a picture of the Samsung nexus galaxy primus Maximus and it does indeed look like what the iPhone 5 was supposed to look like according to top men. Its a bit fat at the bottom but I like it.

Isn't there a S II HD coming out with the same resolution as the Prime?

I'm more disappointed that you're doing a thread for the moto/verizon event, but not for the more important BlackBerry DevCon event. Seriously, dude. You dropped the ball on this one.

What kind of dumbass actually uses his phone one handed like that? I don't even use my iPhone one handed like that. The main fingers go on the back of the device as support whilst the thumb is airborne and can click away.







Anyway, do we have confirmed PAL specs yet?

I'm actually incredibly excited to move up to a bigger phone. You can reach. A phone doesn't just sit in your hand motionless, you're constantly sliding your hand around it. You can totally reach.

Like you cup your hand and the phone tilts sideways a little bit.

He clearly doesn't know to use his main finger on the yellow side and his other finger on
the orange side, then turn it. Then spin the middle side topwise. Topwise.

Man, after look at the RAZR, the Nexus better not be Verizon exclusive. It would be kinda stupid to release 2 super high end phones the same time.

It might be subsidized exclusive for some time. But hopefully the unlocked model can work on all USA carriers, including Sprint. I'm not sure if Sprint allows unlocked phones in their network.

Except that then Verizon would have two of the latest and greatest Android devices out there and could probably attract some new customers.

When the international version cleared the FCC, it had 3G bands for T-Mo and Att. So yes.

I don't get this. Verizon has the largest and fastest network in the US, and it has never had a Nexus device. Plus, every other carrier has the GS2, which is a frigging awesome device as well.

Edit: Well, yeah it would suck for people on other carriers, but the fact that VZW has been lacking a Nexus while every other carrier has had one up to this point has blown for us. Now the tables are turned!
