    5mp shooter? – Not very high-end to me

  • RabidRotty

    a maximum of 2 gig micro sd? wtf? must be a typo

  • Guest

    MP doesn’t always determine image quality

    a good sensor>MP 

  • RabidRotty

    Appaerntly with the back lighting its suposed to be a great cam, but Im pissed at the 2 gig max micro sd, what am I agoing to do with the rest of the 32 on my card…LOL

  • RabidRotty

    Nevermind mis-read it 32 micro 2 microSDHC mines not sdhc thankfully

  • MobileTechWorld

    Yup I got confused too. It’s 32 for a regular MicroSD and 2GB for an SDHC card.

  • RabidRotty

    I have a 16g sdhc as well, when I get my new nexus I will test it out see if it will read n write the full card, and let you know how it oges, but you will probably get one before me, since I’m in the great white north (Canuckland) so if you get around to doing any testing will ya let me know? Thanx. I’m sure you can get my emai from your comments database

  • mjr

    So…..AT&T???? I see Edge and HSPA for the GT-I9250/GT-I9250M/GT-I9250M/SC-04D

  • John Fernandez

    All fake the same site they got this info from has the Samsung Galaxy SII listed with a dual core CPU clocked at 1.5GHz and LTE, which is what the nexus prime was suppose to have. I say wait a few more hours and we shall see the true specs. Most of the specs were leaked last week by a Google employee and they don’t come close to what is listed above.

  • RabidRotty

    9 hours and counting

  • Michael

    Wow. It looks like the nicest Windows Mobile 6.5 phone ever made!

    really , both of these specs:

    External Memory: 32GB microSD up to a maximum 2GB/microSDHC
    SIM Card: Size conventional battery pack: lithium-ion battery battery capacity: 1750mAh

    are either retard or wrong, they describe a Batter spec for Sim card, and  2GB micro SDHC ? makes it pointless to even ADD this spec in there as NO ONE will ever use that.

  • MobileTechWorld

    The SIM card type has nothing to do with a MicroSD memory card.

    Tell us why a Company would name it’s product after another company’s name.
    Samsung makes parts for Iphone so does this mean will see the Iphone Galaxy 5 ?  coming out next ?

    Does this not sound like a really BAD Business decision or maybe ? the Information you recieved from whomever ( because you do not state where it came from) could simply be wrong ?  Not saying you are doing this to get more hits on your site but that is indeed what some sights do.  Eventually people don’t bother coming back as credibility is lost.
    Just does not make sense to me, the naming scheme.

  • Exadyne

    That is because they are referencing the Korean Galaxy S II LTE version. That version does have 1.5ghz and Korean LTE support.

  • MiNi

    4.7! WTH no thx

  • Anonymous

    I guess no microSD no sale for me…

  • Alex Hutchins

    microSD supports up to 4 GB, microSDHC supports up to 32 GB, and microSDXC supports up to 2 TB. This leads me to think that it is supposed to say “up to a maximum of 32 GB microSDHC / 2 TB (not GB) microSDXC”. Even your response above doesn’t make sense.

  • google nexus prime

    a really good phone . love it
