Nexus 3 with Tegra 3 will be here by Christmas according to Taylor in his final goodbye post.
"p.s. I know everyone loved my Android Insider rumor reports so I’ll leave you with one final tip. LG Nexus 3 with Tegra 3 by Christmas…"
Android and Me and You (aka Where did Taylor go?) – Android and Me
If there was a Nexus 3 coming in the coming weeks, this guy would've known about it and wouldn't have said the next one by Christmas. I'm thinking it might just be a tablet or something to give away, or G2X's. Nothing super special.

Remember the Pyramid has been leaked lately too.
Alternatively you could just trade your current phone plus $ for one on Craigslist.
Everyone needs a backup phone and its very easy when your carrier uses sim cards.
I've done the Craigslist trade thing a bunch .
I just always meet in a public place like inside a Starbucks so its safe.
Plus I'm a coffee fiend anyways heheh.

Guys, it's the LG Nexus tablet, it's NOT a new Nexus phone. There are still Nexus S phones expected to roll out to other carriers, Google isn't going to $h!t where they eat on this one. Also, they don't need to encourage people to develop for phones, they need people to develop apps for tablets. These giveaways aren't just for fun, they are there to drive developer interest.
I promise you, they are giving away Nexus Tablets to everyone at I/O. They'll probably show off new features to also get devs excistied, like an update of Honeycomb and some killer new apps (Gmusic). I imagine there'll be a preview of ICS, but the emphasis will be getting developers to make tablet optimized apps for Honeycomb.

I also think it is a giveaway for googleio, and I can't wait until I get there to see what it is. I think I heard a number of about 5000-5500 for the number of io tickets, so 5300 seems like a suspiciously close number. I guess we will see in about a month.

I'd rather get the next Nexus phone, but I agree that it is probably a tablet. Hopefully it will at least have Tegra 3; that would be cool if it is a Tegra 3 Nexus tablet. A G2X would be probably be cool, but you need qHD or better these days to be impressive. Maybe it is a new Google TV device...

Devs are clamoring for a development device based on the Tegra2. You're not going to iron out processor issues with a Hummingbird device. If we are going to accept that the Android platform will be processor fragmented, accept it and release development devices with each contending processor platform.
If you look at it, which device comes with
2. Stock Android OS
3. Has both AT&T and T-Mobile bands
You end up with the G2X. Just unlock the damn thing.

I believe the next nexus will come from either LG or Samsung, primarily because they are large manufactures, they make there on screens and they can afford to undercut the rest. Now seeing LG make a huge shipment to Google sounds fairly logical sense Google needs a Developer Tablet. Which would make a nice gift at Google IO. The shipment was close to what attenance is supposed to be.
