    Default What happened to rumors of multiple Nexus phones?

    I'm on Verizon and don't intend to switch just to get Nexus 4.
    Also, Nexus 4 speed on T-mobile network may be comparable to Verizon LTE network but Nexus 4 in the current form is not gonna be fast on Verizon (I guess not even possible).

    Is there a chance that we will see more Nexus phones by year end? I need to replace my almost 3 year old Droid X ASAP because the battery is bloated and the screen started to leak).
    My last resort would be Galaxy S3 with CM10 ROM but I would love to have a true Nexus brother to my Nexus 7.

    I'd like to point out-

    Nexus 7 - ASUS gets early access to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

    Nexus 4 - LG gets early access to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

    Nexus 10 - Samsung gets early access to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

    Only one smartphone there, but there's three companies that got early access to Android in 2012.

    I think their point is, there were rumors of multiple nexus devices. Which we ended up getting. Probably only going to be the one nexus phone.

    The rumor was supposedly "up to five OEMs getting early access to new versions of Android". You inferred that it would only involve smartphones.

    Ok, I see now.
    I guess that's it then. I could have sworn there were rumors of multiple PHONES though.

    Yeah. But it ended up being multiple Nexus devices. The Nexus 4, The refreshed Nexus 7, and the Nexus 10.

    There was a rumor of 5nexus devices. Every one thought for sure it was 5 phones but its not. Nexus 4, nexus Q, nexus 7, and nexus 10. It looks like only 4 devices with one currently being retooled aka the nexus Q. The fifth device who knows

    Kind of off topic but I had no idea the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 were made by different companies. Is there any physical difference in design between them??

    They are exactly the same... save for the size, material, screen, processor, ram, form factor...

    Im just messing with you, yes there are quite a few differences. Check out the spec sheets.

    So we get multiple tablets but not multiple phones ..... so stupid. I guess I think this way because I'm just not really into the whole tab thing. I use my phone for the tab type tasks and a laptop for the other. I remember a few people trying to use a tab or ipad instead of a laptop in pharmacy school and they quickly found out it just doesn't work. I just don't see why people like the tabs so much....unless if you travel a lot for movies and web surfing...i dunno. I just feel if there is a market for multiple tabs then surely there is a market for multiple nexus phones.

    The orginal rumors on multiple nexus devices switch from being multiple nexus devices and multiple nexus smartphones. So you already have your answer the multiple nexus devices was true not the smartphones.

    There has been some new about a nexus 3 made by samsung, but there is very limited information on it. The "proof" you can find is a picture said to be taken by a nexus 3 device. If you google "nexus 3" you should be able to find some information
