PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I don't think I've ever seen this before, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Samsung anf Google were supposed to unveil the Samsung Nexus Prime with Android Ice Cream Sandwich next week, but in a surprise announcement, the companies said that the press event is cancelled - out of respect for Steve Jobs. In the meantime, leaked specifications reveal that the Nexus Prime could be a real doozy.

That has got to be the most idiotic fracking name out there. The marketing department must be filled with 4year olds.

Never head of product code names?

Windows 7: "Blackcomb/Vienna".
Firefox 4: "Tumucumaque"
MacOS X 10.6: "Snow Leopard"
Adobe Photoshop CS5: "White Rabbit"
Ubuntu 12.04: "Precise Pangolin"

It's not uncommon, and most have themes (Apple uses big cats, Microsoft uses locations near Redmond). Google just chose desserts for theirs.

Would you have preferred "Candy String" ? I'm sure this cake-based naming scheme has some perversion potential...
