LG, in it's bid to become a larger presence in the smartphone market, is positioning itself to be the manufacturer of the next Nexus device from Google Inc. Ramchan Woo, head of LG's Smartphone division, told CNET "We're having discussions. We're working on it." Through the years the Nexus moniker has carried with it a level of prestige. It is the phone to own if you want updates yesterday and suport through your entire contract and beyond. There are a lot of concerns that Motorola will automatically be given carte blanche to all of Google's updates first, and if LG secures this contract, it will alleviate a lot of the manufacturers concerns. Ramchen warns that there have been no commitments as of yet, and there has been no mention of which version of Android LG is looking to build their equipment on.
