    Seems like an obvious choice to me now that Google has bought Moto.
    Obviously? What has moto done to be part of the nexus project. Remember being part of the nexus project google's criteria is simply being most innovative company for the year.

    HTC
    First 1gz processor
    Snapdragon was leaing at the time
    Unibody Frames

    Granted the Nexus One

    Samsung
    Amoled Technology
    In house single core processors
    Highly Successful Galaxy line up
    Sense

    Granted the Nexus S


    Samsung
    the evolution of Amoled Technology
    Galaxy S2 phenom
    1st Nivida Tegra Processor
    Redesigned Touchwiz

    Granted the Galaxy Nexus

    Motorolla
    ???
    ???
    ???
    ???

    Google still hasn't finished there take over of Motorolla and plus nexus project is something company has to earn not be bought out. It would really look bad on Google to have Moto make nexus phone just solely because what they were bought out.

    We only have the words of Eric Schmidt that Motorolla has big things coming this year but is yet to be seen. However it's very early this year so we will see.

    I feel it's battle between HTC and Samsung for this year for the nexus project. Both coming out with quad-core processors this year and both have something up leaves for this year.

    Samsung is pushing the better battery life.
    HTC has is peer to pear technology and promising dialing back there quantity of their product and focusing on higer quality. HTC is really the underdog in this battle as for two years they seemed to be in shadow of Samsung. HTC took a loss in earning last year and as well the HTC Tablets obviously have not done to well IMO. Unfortunately for HTC Samsung does not look like they are at all slowing down.

    I'm glad someone pays attention to the Android world.

    Rubin himself confirmed that it's a bidding process. Whoever is willing to pay the most gets to make the next Nexus.

    I'd really like to see them stick with an American company. Although Moto's are made in China, it's a U. S. company and the money stays here, where it belongs.

    Rubin Bids the most? Explain how the bidding system works?
    Lol damn I forgot about article. I actually read that article two. Well damn I retract my earlier statement. It's all coincidental how each company so far got nexus project at time when they were strongest influential in mobil process.

    Anyone have more details on this bidding process?
    What if no bids does that mean no nexus.

    This bidding process totally change my out look. i can't believe forgot about that article. Those I think I watch Eric Schimt more that Rubin and I sick Eric Schimt tends not to talk about the bidding system. He usually talks up the company that they working with and now I remember why because it's the company that pays the most.


    If moto gets the bid they better damn well deliver on some innovating tech for the device. Again even though I know now they bid on the nexus project the companies that have gotten make Nexus always have pushed envelope before they came with their Nexus. Furthermore their devices always hand some trademark tech add to there nexus.

    Droid Nexus with gorilla glass and red accents doesn't really appeal to me... I JOKE I JOKE....seriously moto please do better than that.

    The original Droid is the phone that helped launch Android into the mainstream. Friends of mine that never owned a smartphone before bought a Droid and have since moved on to bigger and better Android phones.

    Hmm no it wasn't a developer phone. It was new it was hot it was unlocked and bloat free. Vzw had no idea what they where getting them selves into. As soon as they reliazed it they ordered the most controversial lock on a phone the dreaded efuse on the droidX. Just after droid was released meer two months the true and as I see it only nexus came about.
    This; albeit, this isn't Moto's fault.

    I'll try and approach their new devices with an open mind. They need to, like Samsung, put their foot down on what software is loaded onto their phones out of the factory. As a matter of fact, all phone manufacturers should slowly start taking away the grip these carriers have over the US market!

    But it'll come with MotoBlur and people will still complain about that.

    I don't really care for Motoblur, or most any other skin. Especially if it creates performance problems.

    I'm just saying an OEM putting their foot down against carriers isn't going to get rid of OEM "experiences". Bloat/crapware are the carrier add-ons. TouchWiz, Sense, and MotoBlur aren't really carrier-influenced or carrier-mandated bloat.

    Actually Motorola said that they would rather do stock but that Verizon demands that they skin the phone. They don't want a bunch of stock phones from OEMs.

    Well my opinion changed drastically from the quote you replied to. Honestly I can't remember what my original idea was for the topic of this forum. Since I made posts in this thread almost a YEAR AGO. So then this "list" you are referring to means nothing to me.

    If you're already required to skin some of your phones you may as well be consistent. Also, those phones were in the pipeline before Google bought them. I'm sure Jha thought blur was a good idea. It's the new management that said this. Carriers even ask for things in the skins to be changed. Look at the Optimus G on Sprint and At&t. You think LG was like let's just change up the settings menu on one of these phones to see how it goes? I'm not saying every manufacturer wants to put stock Android on their phones, but I believe if Moto could now, they would.

    Solely placing the "blame" on carriers for OEM customizations ignores the fact that the OEMs want to differentiate their products from their competitors as well. Sense as a UI even existed before Android.

    I believe that as long as the Motorola brand exists, there is a place for MotoBlur. That's part of beauty of Android.
