    Still a rumor. Everyone picked up the story based on this guy Taylor Wimberly from AndroidandMe. He got a lot right about the Moto X when it was in the rumor phase, so that's why a lot of people are putting stock in this rumor. But I'm waiting for more confirmation from the mothership itself.

    That was the first I heard about it, though it's been a busy week and I haven't been online much.

    I'd love to see KEVLAR and a RAZR TYPE BATTERY on the new Nexus. I had to ditch tmo so I'm using my S4 mostly but LG did a nice job with the N4. I hated that rattling noise and even though it was aesthetically pleasing, I can do without the glass back.

    I've always loved Moto hardware, the Razr line is really nice so I hope the rumors are true.

    Thanks for the heads up BD!

    Don't get me wrong--I hope Moto makes the next Nexus, because I'm a fan of their devices too!

    How come Motorola didn't start making Nexus devices when Google first purchase them?

    There have been a number of articles written about this. Probably the main reason was that at the time, Motorola still had a number of devices in the development pipeline (the Razr HD line, Razr M, and Razr i), and Google wanted to wait until they were completed and introduced before embarking on their first joint phone, the Moto X.

    Would it be called the Nexus 5? Seems like their naming convention on the 2013 Nexus 7 was still Nexus 7. They didn't call it a Nexus 8. Seems logical that the replacement for the Nexus 4 will also be called the Nexus 4 and that the Nexus 5 would be a different class perhaps a phablet in the Note 2 class.

    agreed. I hope the moto rumors are true ONLY if kevlar and battery life is highlighted. But yeah, Nexus/HTC combo would be sick!

    I think 720p 2RAM is plenty ... I would like to see them step up battery life, camera, 32gb. Not looking for much.

    Never been a spec *****, I think some people have unrealistic expectations and are more concerned with the spec sheet than how the device actually functions.

    The phones follow a number/iteration model (kind of) ie, Nexus 4 was the 4th one. The Sammy Nexus phones screwed that up with their intrusion into the name. (Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus) So it would follow that the new one will be the Nexus 5, unless it gets a manufacturer name adjustment.

    The Tablets folow a screen size naming model. (Nexus 7/10) regardless of inteation or manufacturer.

    Saying the new one would be the Nexus 4 again doesn't make any sense. Its not like the Nexus 4 has a 4 inch screen. (Or any other feature that would deem it "4" besides being the 4th generation of Nexus phone)

    (Pure observation, not at all scientific)

    Calling it a Nexus 4 makes more sense than calling it a Nexus 5.

    What would the Nexus phone of 2015 be called? The Nexus 7 moniker is in use.

    It would seem to make even less sense that two of Google's three products following one naming system, while the third does not. Would it not be more logical that Google is consistent with how their devices are named?

    2015 could be the Nexus 6S? Heck, I don't know. But a second Nexus 4 makes way less sense considering the fact that "4" would be totally unrelated to anything this years phone would be.

    The tablets are pretty obviously Size - Name related, the phones aren't. What's the 3rd product they have hardware wise with more than one model, I'm drawing a blank.

    EDIT: Are you are counting the tablets as 2 devices to get three? Even so, if all 3 used the same naming structure, screen size, the phone wouldn't be the Nexus 4 anyway. It's already not in line. ( And never has been)

    You think we'd see a Nexus 5, then 6, and then Google would switch to adding letters?

    Makes more sense to grow brand recognition for their three product lines (4, 7, 10).

    The 6s was a joke. C'mon now.

    We'll have to disagree here. 7 and 10 make sense because the describe their products. 4 doesn't after this phone is replaced. It would make more sense to always add a manufacturer tag ie G, Galaxy, X, Xperia.. etc. to the phones than to keep a no longer decsriptive number for future generations.

    Nexus 4 has a 4.7" screen, maybe that is where the 4 comes from, they round down. Maybe there will be a Phablet Nexus 5 with a 5.7" screen.

    The Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus also fell in the 4 inch range screen wise. The 4 is the 4th one, which makes a lot more sense as a naming option than a rounded down screen size IMO.

    Guess we'll have to wait and see which way they go.

    Although previous Nexus phones were also around 4", I think the N4 was in fact named after the screen size, because that's when Google started their Nexus naming standard (with the N7 and N10).

    His guess is as good as mine, since we don't have official reasoning from Google, we'll never know. I'll bet my hat the new one isn't named 4 though. Everyone meet back here when its announced!

    Also, we've totally lost the topic.

    Thoughts moto making it? Since I'm on VZW, I doubt I'll be seeing a Nexus anytime soon. But Itd be great if Moto did IMO. Top notch radios and battery life, and now, optimized processing, could be the best Nexus yet.
