Nexus Prime with Google Chrome, Apple’s worst nightmare?

If you could put yourself in an Apple exec’s shoes right now, you would probably be feeling very confident right now due to the imminent iPhone 5 announcement which as usual, has sent the majority of smartphone owners into anticipation overdrive on what the company will announce.

On the other hand, you can also agree that Apple will be keeping a very close eye on Samsung and Google’s upcoming Mobile Unpacked event, in which both juggernauts are expected to unveil the next big Android offering, the Nexus Prime – an obvious and perhaps the toughest competitor that Apple will face thus far with regards to their iPhone.

The iPhone 5 will of course have a huge following, but considering the Nexus Prime will be the first handset to run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and may be faster than the iPhone 5 in terms of overall speed if it comes with a 1.5Ghz dual-core chip compared to Apple’s A5 processor as seen on the iPad 2.

One factor which hasn’t been discussed in detail yet though, may end up to be Google’s secret weapon, and one which may result in a flock of sales for the company. That factor is Google Chrome, as the latest rumors are suggesting that Chrome is finally coming to Android, and what better way for Google to pump up the Nexus Prime’s ego even further with an announcement on October 11th that the Nexus Prime will be the first handset in the world to run Ice Cream Sandwich and Chrome.

Many Apple fans will agree that Google’s Chrome browser is easily one of the best browsers around, with some even picking it ahead of the likes of Firefox and Safari. If Google manage to push out Chrome for the Nexus Prime, then we have a feeling that Apple may start to take Google and the Nexus Prime a lot more seriously than before.

If you are considering either the Nexus Prime or iPhone 5, let us know how significant a Chrome release for Android would be – Should Apple be worried about this or not?
