    People, you have to understand these phone were probably in development before the Google/Motorola merger. They're not going to throw away dev time and cash just to start over again with a Moto Nexus device. IMHO of course...

    Nah I doubt Motorola had one. Look how fast Asus put out the Nexus 7. From what I hear they weren't even trying to make a Nexus 7. I don't think it take that long. These companies make these products for a living. None of them are actually starting over from scratch!

    I'm on board for multiple Nexi devices! I kept wondering how come Samsung has had the last two nexus devices while the other OEMs seemed to ignore nexus territory. That said, two of the three rumored are kind of shockers! I would have expected HTC and Motorola to be the other offerings next to Samsung's next nexus. I would love to see an HTC One Nexus! (though didn't think how similar to Nexus One till just now XD) and a Motorola Droid Nexus!

    But if Sony can deliver then I'd love to see a nexus from them! It just seems like Sony's Xperia devices sport great design but will often feature a less than stellar processor or launch with an older version of Android. If they could finally step up the specs just a bit then that'd be an Xperia device to buy!

    But even more shocking than Sony is LG! I mean, LG does offer more mid range phones than flagship devices. I guess they could offer lower budget nexus device, which would make sense from a marketing standpoint. But I could also see LG stepping up and doing a flagship device as well.

    Anyway it goes I hope this rumor is true! It would be welcome news to the Android community!

    If Sony dropped a Nexus device, I would absolutely check that thing out! Their Xperia line is mad sexy, and I can only imagine how nice one would be with great hardware and running stock Jellybean. Mmm...

    I'm guessing Google is not putting out a Moto Nexus so they avoid the clamor that would undoubtedly be made by manufacturers and others (Omg! Google is closing Android and not supporting other manufacturers anymore! Quick! Lets all make Windows Phones!! :blink:).

    Sounds good, except for the LG part (I want nothing to do with LG phones after my enV Touch is was coned into getting). I also think it would be messed up on Google's part not to let HTC in on the Nexus madness, considering what they have contributed to Android and the hole theyre in right now, unless they don't want to put out one.

    The beautiful part of this is not having to worry about these phones not coming to Verizon. Since I will be leaving to go pre-paid, everything will be available!! Only downside is I'll have to wait til "Winter" instead of the rumored fall. Sony Nexus here I come!!

    What are the chances of there being at least one Nexxus device with a hardware keyboard?

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say if Motorola ever makes a Nexus device it will most likely have a physical keyboard.

    I agree. LG phones are seemingly built to fail after their allotted 2 year period. I've owned two LG phones and they both didn't hold up very well over time.

    I'm curious about the Sony offering most of all. I've been hoping they would release something, and I have hopes that by some miracle it will be CDMA since they already have a number of quality GSM Xperia devices, including one LTE offering.
