Google's Vic Gundotra says Nexus phones are to become 'insanely great cameras', just you wait
Google's Senior Vice President of Engineering, Vic Gundotra, seems to never learn not to disclose stuff on social networks. After Larry Page practically scolded him for commenting on Twitter "two turkeys don't make an Eagle" on the Microsoft-Nokia partnership, now Mr Gundotra is on Google+ for teasing some info on upcoming Nexus phones.

Vic Gundotra answered a follower's comment that they hope one day to be able to forget about lugging heavy camera with them when they have a Nexus phone, with the enigmatic "we are committed to making Nexus phones insanely great cameras. Just wait and see."

Now we've heard that the Motorola X phone will eventually sport a Sony camera, like most flagships this year, and we all know Moto's smartphones might be good at many things, but cameras aren't them, yet Google's VP mentions Nexus handsets, which the Moto X might not be, so what is Google doing with camera sensors remains a mystery still.

Vic Gundotra might have also meant something even further in the future, but the "committed" part is quite reassuring anyway, knowing Google's engineering prowess.

Google unlike Apple who all people worship for is just a logo, gives me reasons as to why I should worship it. GO GOOGLE!

I would expect the Nexus 5 to maybe show an improved camera function (sensor + s/w). But more likely the Nexus 6 will see the fruits of the efforts made on improving the camera function.

I can also get from what he wrote that it's not here yet, but it will be.
Waiting...Vic.

Nexus phones will have insanely great cameras once NOKIA makes them.

I think the Motorola X will be a Nexus phone after all, and it will truly revolutionize smartphones, HW, SW wise. Come May, the time will be just right for the Nexus 5 in the $400 ballpark starting at 16GB.

Haha, and more of ^great^ camera. :) Well good competition is a healthy competition as long as fanboys keep their ego in control and stay on realistic side.
