Source: Announcement on Nexus Prime Unveiling is Imminent

We have yet to get a Nexus Prime announcement, but we may soon get the next best thing. According to a reliable source, an announcement on the rescheduling of Samsung and Google’s unveiling of the Ice Cream Sandwich flagship device should be made soon. Our insider also had some reassuring words for those concerned about how the phone that may very well launch as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will handle resource-hungry games:

“As far as the Nexus goes, you can let people know that they don’t have to worry about gaming speed/graphics. It’ll be plenty. Also, an announcement on the unveiling is imminent. So hang tight.”

Those were the words passed along to the staff at Android Forums. Speaking of which, if you’d like to jump in on the growing discussion and speculation surrounding the upcoming handset, you can head over to the ultimate Nexus Prime thread by following the link below.

    Imminent. They keep using that word. I do not think it means what they think it means.

            If soon they don’t release the prime,
            I’ll buy something else with my dime.

        • ari_free

          As you wish.

    • johnnybirdman

      If they would just release the phone we wouldn’t give a hill of… beans…

    • MrDSL

      Imminent in tech world means the same thing as unlimited does to carriers..

    • ari_free

      I wasn’t nervous. Maybe I was a little bit “concerned” but that’s not the same thing.

    • roeod4

      Inconceivable!

      • derek porter

        I don’t think it means what you think it means

  • Steven Skwarkowski

    Spooging of my britches imminent!

  • sc0rch3d

    my wife is sick of me talking about this phone. release it, for her sake! :) kthxbai

    • Joseph A. Yager

      That made me laugh – I’m in the same situation here

      • TheWenger

        haha me too

      • sc0rch3d

        she even asked me, “aren’t they announcing your new phone tomorrow?” (this was yesterday). sad face ensued.

        • David Faber

          Same thing on my side. My finacee is getting the iPhone4s and we’re now just waiting on the Nexus Prime to make the move to Verizon (mostly for the service coverage, but also for the phones). She’s been annoyed that my phone hasn’t had an official announcement yet.

        • endone

          I had set a reminder on my phone of the livestream..forgot to take it off =( needless to say, i was very sad a few hours ago when it went off

          • John

            yep. i also had this pop up saying “stop working…stream should be on soon”. it saddened me to del it

    • John

      same here

      Conversation between myself and my fiancee:

      Me: Babe, they’re finally going to announce the phone I’ve been wanting!
      Her: Didn’t they announce it before?
      Me: No, they kept delaying it, but I think this time they mean it!
      Her: *rolls eyes* oooookay…

  • surethom

      I’ll see your Milestone and raise you a Hero! Nexus Prime … rescue me! I can’t even play Angry Birds for chrissakes!

  • Dave

    So this is an announcement that there’ll be an announcement. ;-)

      And this is a comment on your comment about an announcement on an announcement.

      Good thing that going meta is trendy.

        Immineception!

    I love words like “imminent”, they’re so very ripe for use in hype-speak and political double-talk. The word *sounds* so urgent and impending so we feel like we can hang on just a little longer…But it’s BULLSHIT because it doesn’t actually tell us a timeframe. We talking hours? Days? Weeks?… At the time of the sun’s “imminent” burn-out?

    Bah! Just fricken announce and release the phone already! You want my money, I want to give it…Let’s do it!

    • http://twitter.com/havens1515 Randroid

      I think they mean at the time of the sun’s “imminent” burn-out.

  • Alex

    Why ANYBODY would worry about it running games/apps is beyond me. Especially if it has an Exynos running @ 1.5in ghz in it. He’ll, the rumored TI 1.2 ghz would be plenty. Also, it has 1 gb of RAM. My DX2 with a 1.0 ghz Tegra 2 and 512mb runs EVERYTHING fine. Have yet to see any troubles. Plus having custom kernals on the Prime, you’ll have no issues.

  • veccster

    STOP IT!!! 4 announcements about the Nexus Prime and its only 4pm EST. This is yet another pointless announcement that provides no real information.

    We know its imminent…the damn phone exists and will DEFINITELY be announced – hence “imminent”.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XUTKTI2DMWW74ZU2IM2VMKGIHM K

    Dave NAILED it. An announcement of the announcement. We need to get a life. It’ll be here when it’s here.

    AT&T or Verizon, that’s the real issue for me. Comments?

  • Terry Dalton

    “AS YOU WISH!”

    My money… take it! NOW!

      Ok if you say so…..so how are we going to make this transaction….PayPal?

    This article is a waste of space..

    • redrooster13

      Your comment is a waste of space..

      I felt the need to waste a little more space on this wasteful page…

    So getting this thing. My trusty old HTC Desire is showing her age. Gave the old girl a rejuvenation dose with some cyanogenMod, but the small screen and RAM size are holding her back.

  • gallery69

    Make one more Nexus Prime “imminent” or ‘announcement’ coming soon post, i dare you. I double dare you.

    • NightAngel79

      As you wish!

  • JR69

    Imagine if “imminent” meant this week at CTIA? Hmmmm

  • bfx94

    I thought women like it when you delay the release. Not sure why all these women are complaining.

  • http://www.djbis.com Bis

    Weren’t we supposed to have specs, and more today? WTF happened?!!! I am about to get a damn iphone, I like Siri.

    • Andrew

      Wait, you didn’t hear it got delayed?

      • http://www.djbis.com Bis

        Yeah, I did after I posted this comment. Still, its BS.

    • Jdog25

      I like Siri too but I need to see some real world test not the ones where everyone is all quiet.

      • http://www.djbis.com Bis

        You are right. With my droid sitting on the windshield of my car, it has a tremendous amount of trouble understanding what I am saying when I am driving. Sometimes even when I am not driving. If SIRI is similar than it will be another problematic voice to txt app.

  • tottyRICE

    ok i have a question… supposedly the nexus prime is coming or eventually coming to all carriers, so that would be the four major carriers: T-Mo, Big Red, Sprint and ATT… so here’s my question would the nexus prime work on smaller reign/carriers like Metro PCS?

  • Cipher Zero

    Imminent in the tech world is the same as when your a kid, and your parents say “soon”. It can mean anything from 10^-43 second and 10¹°° years.

  • NightAngel79

    The comments in this article are FULL of WIN!! Article? Didn’t even read it :p

    • ClayRogers

      Actually the comments were all very annoying. I had no idea what they were talking about. I’m ready for the Internet world to get over the whole “win” phase too.

      • NightAngel79

        Not familiar with “The Princess Bride” ?????
