Rumour and gossip has been building towards Samsung and Google announcing on November the 8th the ' Nexus Two '!
Coupled with the rumour that Carphone warehouse could be selling the unlocked phones direct in the UK does add up to a bit more that internet gossip.
( I believe Best buy in the USA are connected to Carphone warehouse?)
Should this be true, it is, In my humble opinion, big news indeed, the Nexus one may have been a sales flop, but as a phone it has been a huge success. Owners of the Nexus have enjoyed updates instantly from Google and then watched other phones slowly follow suit.The developers have adopted the Nexus and it has enjoyed huge support from the likes of our very own Paul and Cyanogen.
Personally I have been holding out for HTC to make the next 'Google' phone, the G2/Desire 'Z' is almost a worthy follow up, but the fastboot lockout is proving to be an issue. Plus it isn't a big jump in hardware and performance.
This news, if true, will be met with a "Great!"but I'm sure with some reserve, myself included, as Samsung haven't the background HTC have with the developers, their software is sometimes questionable and build quality is perceived by some as suspect.
Google providing the software will be huge positive for this phone, as will the Samsung Superled screen (The Galaxy S screen is superb!)
One final thought, was it about this time last year the Nexus one was starting to be talked about? By December the Nexus one was pretty well confirmed and it was only the official word that was missing....
Don't flame me! Just my thoughts, lets hope it IS true and we have a new Google phone for Christmas- I'll almost certainly be getting it should it happen.
Twitter has lit up this evening with talk of this alleged phone, Gizmode seem to think is is real and have 2nd hand experience ( A friend of a friend!) of it.
I'm hoping for more, but it's looking like a Galaxy S with a few bells and whistles.
I'll update if it changes....
According to Androidandme ,who,along with a few other bloggers claims to actually have the phone, have put out some specifications and other info, the only real standout being a suggested 1.2ghz Cpu..
More as and when......
