  • Well shit, I was going to wait for the Nexus Prime, but this looks good enough....
  • LOL
  • Interesting choice for a phone...if I didn't know any better and was looking purely at price then I'd be all over it...but lucky for me I know better!
  • Verizon has a lot of devices
  • Verizon has a lot of customers.
  • Edit: double post
  • No Nexus Prime on Verizon!!!
  • At least it's affordable off contract and you're right, not a bad phone to boot.
  • I've played around with one for about a week. It's actually a pretty solid phone and you can run stock Android 2.3 out of the box to boot (albeit not 100% stock). It doesn't feel cheap, it's the thinnest 4G phone in Verizon's lineup (sorry, Bionic, you've got some baby fat thanks to that hump) and it performs well. Only down side is its shotty camera (although that could've been an issue with my demo device) and paltry 256MB of internal storage. It's more like a uber-mid-tier Android phone in that it performs way faster than most entry-level Android phones but comes in last to any of the other 4G Androids in Verizon's stable.
