Nokia was promised by Google that the door will always be open for them to use Android.Android is free anyway so Nokia could use it anyway..It would be superb a Nexus from Nokia because W7 is still unfinished and they need a boost..Why not Nokia bring out a Nexus..Altho people seem to think Nokias gone its still a HUGE player in the market..Anything but that stifled IOS is good in my books even the Psion 5 linked to a modem by infrared is better than IOS,oh i hate IOS..Do you get the feeling i hate IOS.

I wish Google would have wait for at least a full year cycle before coming up with the next version of Android. ICS hasn't matured yet and a lot of manufacturer haven't fulfilled their promises regarding decent update for their devices. This is way too much fragmentation.

By the looks of it, Google is bringing this new line of Nexus Phones and Tablets unlocked and Sim free, not everyone can afford a phone this way.

I think this is a Google good move, maybe forced by its partners, this may be the beginning of ending the Android Fragmentation (IDK just my opinion).

I think Google will be working with Sony (Camera dept), Samsung (Display), Motorola (Patents?), HTC (UI?), & Asus(Design?).. This will be a damn good phone..

Well I guess we are forgetting Asus, the next Nexus forms, may not only come as Smartphones, there have been rumors of the tablet. I can see Samsung wanting a piece of the cake, as well as HTC, hardly Motorola would be excluded, and I also recall reading rumors of Asus working on a tablet for google. Well all these are rumors, but these news are awesome no matter how they do, Google has taken the right direction on this! I love it! Android FTW!

So we'll be getting those juicy Jellybeans with different flavors from the very start. Clever move from Google, I'm in! From the devs point of view, keeping up with this pace has to be exhausting since ICS is hardly completing its entrance into the market.
