Ties in withexpected Verizon launch in November

Samsung is apparently taking the final steps it needs to prepare the Nexus Prime for launch. The phone maker has listed its GT-i9250, believed to be the GSM version of the Nexus Prime smartphone, with the Bluetooth SIG. This is usually done shortly before a product begins shipping.

The phone, sometimes referred to as the Google Nexus Prime or Samsung Droid Prime, will be the first device to be released with the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android. Although not yet confirmed, the phone is anticipated to offer a 480x800 Super AMOLED display and possibly run a dual-core 1.5GHz processor like the Galaxy S II LTE.

Verizon is rumored to launch the phone on November 3, with other carriers to follow.

The timing of the launch appears to be an intentional attempt to preempt the attention being given to the upcoming iPhone 5 as well as Galaxy S II variants. The latest generation of the Apple iPhone will be introduced to the public on October 4, and officially launched on October 14 in the US, UK, France, Germany and Japan. [via Droid-Life]
