    At the Google I/O 2014 conference this week, Google's head of engineering at Android and the Nexus program, Dave Burke, clarified that Nexus was here to stay and would not be replaced by Android Silver. For a few weeks before the event we heard several rumors suggesting that Android Silver would kill off the Nexus product line, but it seems those rumors were unfounded (at least for now). Burke had this to say,

    Burke added,

    He also elaborated on the processes involved in developing with the open nature of Android. He shared that one team works on Android, while the other works in tandem on the Nexus hardware, but they ultimately go hand in hand,

    Whew! It's good to know Google is still committed to the Nexus line!

    This makes me happy. I may own an HTC M8 but I still love the Nexus phones and own two Nexus 7 tablets and if HTC is releasing an Nexus 8 I may soon own a 3rd.

    In the end I think you going to end up being right. LG seems to be Google's "go to" as of late and there is just too much smoke about a LG G3 nexus. But then again Google and Moto could surprise us and the Moto X+1 could end up being the reference device. I mean moto devices as of late have practically been the closest to a stock google device minus GPE devices.
