Does this mean that the next Nexus device will be a Motorola device?

So this year apple will really launch a thermonuclear war against Android but they will not win and I hope Motorola will ban all apple products

At least they're not linking to Florian Mueller, He's crying just as much as Apple now about things not being fair. And we all know who started it.

I hope this doesn't affect the apps (like the Motorola music app that streams music from your home computer) or Motoblur that will be available on newer phones, I've become quite accustomed to them on my RAZR
