How about two new nexus :

A new low end nexus and a new high end ?

The hardware of the galaxy nexus is similar to the other mid end mobile, and the nexus is here to show what should be an android phone, so they could show what a true low end phone should look like ? And a new high end ?

All nexus come with a new version and jb isnt new although it is the latest version! Nexus stands for the next version (new). Anyway none of us know for sure so like the editor said - take with pinch of salt!

Think about it, LG makes great hardware, and a nexus phone is guarenteed lots of quick updates. Best of both worlds. The nexus gets high end hardware from LG and updates from Google...

I wouldn't buy LG otherwise but this is pretty awesome...
