Samsung GALAXY Nexus, Google Nexus 7 already running Android 4.2?
Motorola Occam. Cleverly named after the Occam's Razor prinicple, this will obviously be a RAZR device. Like the Nexus devices, it was seen on the server traffic log of Android Police. By the way, Occam's Razor merely means that if there are two theories that make the same prediction, the more simple one is best. And what could be more simple than a Nexus device uncomplicated by any manufacturer's skin. So, the theory is that the Motorola Occam is a Nexus version of the Motorola RAZR M or perhaps the Motorola RAZR HD.
Another device, the Manta, runs Android 4.2 and is believed to be a tablet due to the lack of the 'mobile' name in the UA string. Manta is short for manta-ray which fits in perfectly with the code names for the Motorola XOOM tablet. Stingray was the Wi-Fi version of the tablet and Wingray was the variant for the tablet that uses the Verizon data network. On the other hand, the Google Nexus 7 had a code name of grouper, so this could be anything from a larger 10 inch Google Nexus tablet, to a Motorola Nexus tablet.
Hopefully, we won't have too much longer to find out the details about Android 4.2 and which models will be among the first to be powered by the next build of Android.

longer battery on Anroid? I would love that bring it on anytime.

first rumor of a Moto Nexus? sweet, i think that device can't go wrong since both hardware and software are controlled by Google.

No dude, It could go wrong, After Google acquired the motorola mobility they just released ICS flavored Razr HD series and Razr M shipping without the latest jellybean out of the box. Google doesn't want to make other OEMs think that it gives more priority to its own controlled OEM. So the Nexus Moto would be as good as others. But It will be nothing spectacular as you think. : )

Ohhh boy! ....Googlerola RAZR Nexus Maxx on the way?

You forgot the HD ;) Google Motorola RAZR Nexus HD Maxx. Seeing as each android release has brought better battery life without it being a feature, if this release has it as a feature it must be a considerable increase which combined with a Maxx device from motorola or Galaxy Note 2 will mean insanely long battery life!! :)

Anything to get a battery fix, not diggin the battery on the s3
11. baldilocks (Posts: 607; Member since: 14 Dec 2008)
Are you kidding? I get almost 7 hours of screen time with my GS3. You must be doing something wrong....

You probably don't have LTE in your area
21. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5688; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
i get about 5 on my Nexus and that's not even as good as my Razr so i could see that being about right for an SIII.
27. Jasonhunterx (Posts: 111; Member since: 20 Jul 2011)
Galaxy S3 has larger battery and more efficient CPU than the nexus which I own
30. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5688; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
i know. why do you think i said 7 hours should be about right for the SIII after saying i get 5 hours on my Nexus? i have the Extended Battery btw, same size as the SIII.
35. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 3074; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
I get easily 9 hours on HSPA+ in my area with the S3. You just have to learn to manage your battery life right

I've dropped 5% in the last 20 minutes on my s3. The only con so far. Lte is great tho. Destroys the wimax I had on my evo3d.

If he has LTE turned off thats one thing I could see the better battery life. If he has it on and is not in an lte area (granted if his is lte capable can't remeber if all gs3 ware made to use lte or just some models so correct me if I am wrong) it was actually use more battery because it is constantly surching for the LTE connection.

Must be a food name...Kiwi pie or Kangaroo shake
17. BREvenson (Posts: 239; Member since: 17 May 2012)
Most common possibility I've heard is Key Lime Pie. Of all K desserts, I'd pick Klondike...if only it wasn't copyrighted.
Damn, now I want a Klondike bar. :p
22. pikapowerize (banned) (Posts: 1869; Member since: 03 May 2012)
it is copy right!
i wish google will look outside the usual english desserts.. there are so many dessert that start in "K" there's actually "Kransekake" a danish form of cake and "kozunak" and also "kuglof" i hope it wont be a problem by americans on how they will pronounce it! coz "key lime pie" doesnt catch like ICS...
but i hope it will be "kuglof" looks delish!

Kangaroo shake?? WTF lol must be an Aussie thing

If Motorola made a Nexus phone I would definitely be interested.
9. andrew1953 (Posts: 176; Member since: 13 Nov 2011)
So is this still Jelly Bean or Jelly and Ice Cream ?
12. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5688; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
this is still JB because if you'll notice the build numbers have the letter "J" in front of them. this will probably be like when the Droid launched with Android 2.0 which was Eclair and then the Nexus One came out a few months later with Android 2.1 which was still Eclair.
13. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5688; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
imagine it. a Motorola Nexus with a huge battery and Project Roadrunner...i am all over that like a fat kid on cake ya'll.
16. XPERIA-KNIGHT (unregistered)
haaha project roadrunner would seem kinda irrelevant to a razr phone wouldnt it? lolz
moto jus needs smooth performance, better camera, and earlier updates and they're good to go!
20. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5688; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
ohhh noooo! give me all the battery life you can muster!
they've got smooth performance, they definitely need to work on their cameras and the update concern would be negated by Nexus status. this is a recipe for success i tell you! ;D
31. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4196; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Yes! Finally, my hope has been restored! After long patience, there is finally a Motorola Nexus "confirmation" (: Butter, Roadrunner, a dual S4 Pro processor, 2 GB RAM, 2,500+ mAh battery, that badass Kevlar, and the famed Motorola antennae just might have a chance at existence. Though I doubt that Motorola will out-do their own flagship for a Nexus, or will this be their REAL flagship since they are a part of Google now? I don't know, but whatever it may be I will be anxiously waiting for its arrival.

"dual S4 Pro processor"
-thats kind of an oxymoron as the S4 pro is quad core.
38. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4196; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
No, there's a dual core version of the S4 Pro, the MSM8960T. Not just the APQ8064.

Dude, If they release the Razr Nexus, this will be my next Phone. For Sure!
But when the charity is great, the poor suspects. This is too good to be true...
15. chkee89 (Posts: 10; Member since: 25 Jun 2012)
great...cant wait to update my nexus to android 4.2...
19. pikapowerize (banned) (Posts: 1869; Member since: 03 May 2012)
what will be the name of the dessert? i hope yummier!
