This morning was supposed to be the announcement by Samsung and Google of the next iteration of the Android operating system and the latest in the line of Nexus phones. Unfortunately Google and Samsung postponed the event out of respect for the passing of Steve Jobs. We just put up a post which seemingly confirmed the name of the new Nexus phone as the Galaxy Nexus but is that the final name? Hit the break to find out more.
At the 2011 T3 Gadget Awards in the UK, Andrew Glass, a Sales Director for Samsung UK, was at the ceremony to accept the award for Phone of the Year for the Samsung Galaxy S II and came up with this quote:
“You will have an announcement of the Nexus Prime very shortly and will be seeing it in shops sooner than you think.” – Andrew Glass
Now, was this a slip of the tongue and he actually meant Galaxy Nexus? I personally don’t think so – I believe there are 2 models coming – the Galaxy Nexus (SCH-i515) which is a Verizon exclusive, and the Nexus Prime (GT-i9250) which is a GSM phone. What do you think?
