I'll happily go for a Sony or an HTC Nexus device ( smartphone / tablet ) , it's gonna be the best droid if it has a quad-core Krait processor with Adreno 320 graphics , 2GB of RAM , a 4.5" IPS display or smaller with 720p res for the phone , a 10.1" IPS display with FullHD res for the tablet

So u say that we will get updates directly from Google. How come the Australian Galaxy Nexus has not got an update yet? Apparently it will never get one, which means we will be stuck with buggy phone forever.Might go the Windows way me thinks.

More than likely the handset will be from HTC, Samsung, Motorola, LG and possibly Huawei (who seem to be proving themselves quite well and may work to establishing better connections for Google in China over Apple and help win market share for using the Google search engine over Yahoo).

And the most important point is OEMs will no longer be able to fight on software front.. They would have to compete on the hardware front by offering better hardware and designs and battery life...

What a good news? Still Google is very cleaver because by choosing 5 companies that can make Nexus devices, for example Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG and Moto, this is what gonna happen:

1. The 5 Nexus phones will be in the first position for those how want the latest Android OS.

2. Those 5 companies will do the best to make the best Nexus phone and with the competition. Meaning Samsung for example want make a GS2 much better than the SNexus like they did.

3. Custom will have more chooses according to their needs on which company the like the most.

4. This will make Google to have 5 upcoming different Nexus devices to compete with iPhone

5. Meaning Google will easilly compete any other OS make like Windows, iPhone, Tizen, ...

6. This will give any company from the 5 to lead the Android world.

7. Google will give Moto chance to make Nexus phones. Which means that they will be making their own phone from that option and Moto can still make his own projet like the Laptop dock, Razr series and so on.

At the end Google will be the winner if this really happen.

So my guess for the top 2 will be Samsung and HTC to be the front runners for the next Nexus. After that, who cares. Sony and others have a long way to go to catch up to the Google platform and their marketability.

I just hope SONY will do the next Google's Nexus phone. I always wanted to have a Nexus phone but it should be SONY Nexus phone (Sony Xperia Nexus) at least 4.7" screen, a quad-core S4 krait CPU.
