We have been continuing to keep track of everything “Nexus Prime” over the last few weeks, as we get closer to Mobile Unpacked this year, which is expected to unveil the device from Samsung that should kick-start the new Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich by Google. Today we found another story that looks at apps for Nexus Prime, known as DROID Prime for Verizon.
This article found a list of apps via a forum post found here, and there are a few signs that lead us to be critical of the source. The list of apparent Nexus Prime apps are up for debate when it comes to bloat, and don’t tell us much about the device itself, although you’ll find some interesting references like an app for facial recognition.
You can see the full list on this page below. They are apparently harvested from the new Nexus phone by Verizon. Let us know what you don’t see, and if you believe it? We wonder where a few others are like BackupAssistant.apk, MediaHub.apk, talkback_2.6.0.apk, GuidedTour.apk, TouchWizCalendar.apk and SamsungSetupWizard.apk. Some more ideas are in the above forum link.
In case you didn’t read a couple of stories posted earlier today about Nexus Prime on PR, check out some worries about the battery life in this article. If you were going to buy the Nexus Prime or iPhone 5, would you say your choice would be made mostly on the software or hardware?
