Many were surprised when Verizon announced that they would not be carrying the much-awaited and highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S II Android smartphone. It was an odd move given how the three other major carriers – Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile were rushing to bring it in. Then it was leaked that Verizon had another Samsung device in mind, the Samsung Droid Prime.
The Droid Prime, if the rumors are to be believed, is meant to be a more competitive phone which Verizon plans to use when the iPhone 5 comes out, giving Verizon two worthy handsets to compete against the other carriers. Now in a recent tweet by @GalaxySsupport in response to a user who was asking if he/she should upgrade to the Motorola Droid Bionic, they told the user that he/she should wait, as there is something “worth waiting” for.
TalkAndroid threw out a wild speculation that this wait could very well refer to either the Droid Prime or Nexus Prime Android handsets that Samsung is allegedly making, but we’re thinking that Samsung would obviously never tweet a reply to their customers telling them to go for the competitor’s phones over theirs, right?
Either way with the iPhone 5 rumored to be released in October, we can imagine that the Droid Prime and Nexus Prime shouldn’t too far behind, but what do you guys think? Are we reading too much into a seemingly innocuous tweet or is there more than meets the eye?
