Earlier today we saw some leaked specs for a possible Samsung Galaxy Nexus refresh, but a new leak is showing that the old news about Google expanding the Nexus program may have been correct. The new leak shows that in addition to Samsung, LG and Sony may be building Nexus devices...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Hell yeah! that's what I'm talking about, any brand other than Samsung should be good and nice enough, sick of Samsung for so long already, their Nexus devices feel so generic and cheap, yeah samsung's trademarks.

Love what Sony brings..... I would be very interested In a Sony with stock Android.
Wonder why more handset makers must don't put out stock Android. Who says Skins make the Android experience better, especially with the improvements in ICS/JB?

Moto can't make a NExus device for a while Google is trying not to show favoritism toward that OEM if they got a contract for a Nexus device all other Android OEMs would go Apes**te.

Don’t agree with that comment.... If Google just opened the Nexus program to other OEMs there should be no issues with Moto making one too. I welcome the idea every OEM making a "Vanilla" Nexus device.

Totally agree. Equal opportunity on this one.

To be honest I think the Razr's ICS is the nearest if not exactly the same as Vanilla...

Google are laying off Motorola's employees.
There is the possibility that Google just want to acquire Motorola's patents.

No, Google laid off the team/employees working on the feature phones (flip phone like the razr and the likes) to concentrate more on smart phones... Which makes sense.

Carriers destroy Nexus devices with bloatware and no updates or 8 months too late look what Verison did to the SGN what a shame

Nexus didn't have any bloatware on Verizon. Plus who really needs OTA updates when it takes maybe 2 minutes to root a phone and flash a ROM. My Nexus on Verizon has zero bloatware, and I've been running 4.1 for over a month now with no problems.

This^

I don't understand why everyone complains about the Verizon Galaxy Nexus not receiving updates. Did anyone actually think Verizon would OTA everything faster JUST because it's a Nexus?

The reason I bought the Nexus is so I didn't have to rely on big red to make decisions for me. When I wanted Jelly Bean, I had it.

That being said I will never buy another Nexus from Verizon but that's more about my data plan than anything....

I'd buy off contract but somehow verizons GN is twice as much as everyone elses so... I wont be buying one anytime soon.

Aren't Nexus devices supposed to be free from carrier bloatware?
