    BGR released the specs for the nexus prime. There goes my Iphone 4 pre-order, unless it is not coming to rogers in Canada. Based on those specs, its hard to justify being stuck for another 2-3 years with an Iphone 4s.

    I really wish they would put the Nexus phones on the three top carriers. Because I'm not going to break my contract and switch to Verizon for this.

    I wonder how that battery will hold up with the processor and screen.

    Except, it's BGR. Therefore, completely unreliable.

    (Example: IPHONE 5 EXCLUSIVE TO SPRINT)

    The hardware isn't the problem here, the system is :)

    Best post of the thread. Take this leak with not a pinch, but a fist full of salt. :eek::D

    Maybe they'll have it figured out for Jelly Donut or Kit Kat.

    I'm sure this has been discussed on here a lot (I don't spend much time on forums) but is there a reason a curved screen would be seen as a bonus?

    This can either be completely true or completely false, but if true. Other than the verizon exclusive part this is great.

    That was actually WSJ that reported that and BGR linked to their story.

    SN: Hope they have an unlocked version. Not going to VZW.

    The phone's hardware is excellent. But, software is more important to me. Hardware can only go so far, software is where usability comes in. I'll stick with iOS.

    Impressive specs, and if they meant anything I'd be interested.

    If I had that thing in my jeans pocket, it'll snap in half (or rupture my nads) if I sat down.
