This turns out to be a surprise from “the Big Red” after all. According to this poster ad from Best Buy (see photo above) Verizon Wireless will launch Galaxy Nexus as Samsung Nexus Prime a name leaked months ago but kept quiet even after the device was officially introduced to the public back in October in Hong Kong letting everyone think the “Nexus Prime” was dropped due to its leak.
Apparently it wasnt true and we now have hard evidence that VZW will launch it under its first name, the one everyone knew about since last summer. It’s cool to see the name on stage again, I really like Nexus Prime nickname better than Galaxy Nexus. It is a lot more inspiring don’t you think?
