    According to the latest intel, the rumored Android Silver program is probably a completely dead project. This isn't the first time we have heard rumors that the Android Silver project would never see the light of day, but this intel seems to go into more detail as to why.

    Here's a quote with the explanation,

    When you think about it, this actually makes sense. There is really nothing wrong with Google's Nexus program. The Android Silver program would simply have added unnecessary complication to an already crowded mobile market. Sometimes having too many options can be too confusing for consumers.

    It would have been better to be able to have a flagship from every OEM to tout as a Nexus. I was looking forward to this.
