Google's Nexus site redesign references plural "phones"

Google's Nexus site redesign references plural
Not all of the best stories today has come from IFA in Berlin. Actually, not all of the best stories have necessarily been "news" per se. One of the most interesting developments from our perspective has come from a simple redesign of Google's official Nexus website. The Google Nexus site has always been a good resource for getting info on Nexus devices, and it has just been redesigned.

Google's Nexus site redesign references plural "phones"
The redesign cleans up the navigation of the site with a new hidden navigation menu on the left, but it's what you'll find in that navigation menu that's quite interesting. The navigation drawer has links for the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 along with a Support link, and a way to find a local retailer, but the key is that it doesn't list the Nexus 4. 

Instead, the drawer has a link for "Phones" as in more than one phone. It's possible that this is because the Nexus 4 is on its way out, and Google doesn't want to out the official name of the Nexus 5. Or, it could be because there will be more than one Nexus phone this fall. We've seen the LG Nexus, but there have been rumors of a potential Motorola Nexus as well. 

Maybe both rumors are real?

IMHO it's just that for a period they'll sell both the old nexus 4 and the new one.

Or could be referring to the multiple Google edition phones. Or anything. Much too broad to mean anything significant really.

Google Edition phones are not Nexus phones. That's why Google Edition phones get listed in the Play Store, not the Nexus page

Touché. But I still feel like this is gonna be a let down, given that there hasn't been a single anouncment of a Nexus 5.

Google usually doesn't announce new Nexus handsets until late October anyway, so I'm not that worried. Even though I'm likely going to upgrade to a new Nexus, I'm a bit more interested to see the Nexus 10 refresh.

The most likely reason for the plural is the fact that there are two versions of the Nexus 4, 16GB and 32GB. They are shown at the bottom of the page reached from the Phones link.

I hope both are real.
That would prove very interesting; but I doubt it personally.
