It's less than a week now from the final reveal of whatever Samsung has in store for us near the Autumn edition of CTIA, and would you look at that, someone's posted a photo of the next Google hero phone, clear as a bell. What's actually going on here is a cleaning up of the image we've all been staring at for about 19 hours now released by Samsung early this morning, one that showed off the next Samsung device amid signs that it'd be released at Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011: Google Edition next week. This is one good looking device.

Google’s Next Nexus Phone Details Roundup [Mid-Sept 2011, pre-release]

Each time Google creates a new version of Android, they work with a manufacturer of smartphones or tablets as well as a processor manufacturer to create a hero device to host a completely vanilla (otherwise known as totally nude, clean) version of their software. The most recent examples of this come in the Nexus S, out for sale now on three carriers across the USA working with Google's latest smartphone OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread. For tablets, there's the Motorola XOOM, available as both a Wi-fi only device and a Verizon-carried device featuring Google's latest tablet-based mobile OS, Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Though the XOOM isn't technically following the naming scheme, each Google Android hero phone is part of the "Nexus" line, the next of these set to feature the Android system to tie handsets and tablets together in one: Ice Cream Sandwich. While we still do not know the Android number (2.4 or 4.0), we have a collection of details on this device that's sure to get you salivating.

This comes from a tipster that's also revealed the fact that Samsung now has a support page up for the soon to be live device, though this support page is nothing if not incomplete to say the least, showing only the device code and a bunch of placeholder links on all sides. The real juicy bits come from a tipster who notes that this new device is likely to be 8.8mm thin with a full metal chassis.

Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T Join Forces for $100M NFC Investment

There's some big money floating around right this minute, all of it aimed directly at NFC venture Isis, a soon to be rival of Google's NFC service known as Google Wallet. Mobile payments will be the way of the future if Japan is any indication, a mobile payment piece of hardware a MUST in every smartphone (and quite a few feature phones too) on the islands if you want to sell a single unit. Bloomberg has some "people with knowledge of the project" who are saying that this investment is set to be a big step toward what Juniper Research says is a $670 billion dollar market by 2015.
