Verizon Nexus Prime app list leaked

Let me stop you right there and stomp on your foot a little bit with this one with a stern warning: any site that only has one entry in a section, like the source for this story, should be treated as suspect - that said, this list seems fairly possible. The list I speak of is an app list for what appears to be the Verizon version of the Nexus Prime, a mythical device that's supposed to be coming out soon via Samsung to be the hero phone for Google's Ice Cream Sandwich OS update.
