    Android has become too big for it to be just limited onto Google hardware. This would be a monumental loss for Google if they were to make it strictly a Nexus line OS.

    The only credible source I would believe with this news is if it were coming from Google themselves

    Gonna close this as it is purely rampant speculation.
