Google Nexus Prime is very real; and made by Samsung
This little conversation about the Google Nexus Prime I had yesterday with a telco guy was actually made in passing. We were all talking about the iPhone 5 and the slew of tablets that was announced in IFA last week and the topic just popped up.
I can’t really remember the exact words but here’s how it went (roughly):
YugaTech: “I think the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is going to be a fierce challenger to the iPad. I believe it will even force Apple to make their own 7-inch iPad too.”
Telco guy: “You know what’s even more cool? The Nexus Prime.
YugaTech: “Wait! What? You personally saw one?”
Telco guy: “Yup, it was shown to me. Really liked it a lot I didn’t even want to give it back.”
YugaTech: “No way! So, is it made by Samsung?”
Telco guy: “Yup! And it runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich too.”
YugaTech: “Damn! Samsung’s got a back to back with Google on the Nexus phone.”
Other telco guys on the table: “Wait, what’s that? Ateneo got back-to-back?”
And the conversation drifted off to many other topics.
First mention of the Google Nexus Prime was sometime back in June with BGR reported it.
