Oh, here we go. The next version of the *flagship* pure Google phone has been rumored as manufactured by Samsung, but never had any concrete proof. Well, talking about proof, see this image below.
The above email you see is a cease and desist letter sent to a developer to stop using the “Nexus Prime” firmware. Yup, the Nexus Prime is made by Samsung, you can now shut down the LG/HTC rumors and start guessing whether if it will be a SGS2 clone like the Nexus was a NFC clone of the galaxy S.
I guess the Samsung legal time will have a hard time explaining this to their bosses.
Finally , Apple have delivered , and how. The iPad 2 is launching in India on the 29th i.e Friday. As i earlier pointed out, those rumors have been proven right now. A slight change in prices though : Base Wifi 16 GB model costs Rs.29,500/– and the wifi+3g model will be available for Rs.36,900.

In an effort to instill confidence, the Nokia Conversations blog ( Official blog ) has published a post titled “Putting words into action”
The article details some new points about the Microsoft deal in bullet points(More on that in a separate post) and the announcements of Symbian devices X7 and E6 , signaling that they have indeed done SOMETHING and promising to do more. But the interesting part we have to note that, there are going to be more Dual-Sim mobile phones targeted to markets like the BRICs ( Brazil,Russia,India China ) and they have confirmed the existence of a specific C2 dual sim device.
Apparently Stephen has said :
Cseries mobile phones have formed a strong part of the business, he continued. Nokia shipped more than eight million C3 and X2-01 devices so far. Stephen announced that a Dual-SIM device, the Nokia C2, would also be released during the second quarter. More Dual-SIM mobile phones will follow over the rest of the year, he revealed.
The future of Nokia’s next-generation devices was also touched on. Stephen said there’d been progress in this department and that strand of developments would “define some of the future disruptions in our market.”
So, is that the one that leaked in Hackintosh India website ? (Thanks, FoneArena) Have a look :
