So a lot happened yesterday. But somewhere, all amid Google’s I/O conference in San Francisco, Google executive Andy Rubin (who happens to be the head of Android) suggested that the next Nexus device might be coming in time stuff your stockings.
Asked about the Nexus brand, Rubin pointedly said, “The Nexus has been the thing that we used to set the bar, and there’s always going to be new ones coming out in the market…we’ll make an announcement at some point in the future.”
Straight from the horse’s mouth. Oh, and he said something about market cycles, particularly in the summer and holidays.
We just saw Sprint’s Nexus S 4G launch this past weekend, so I can only assume that it’s coming in time for Santa (Google?) to give you a little present next. Rubin also said that the new Android OS, “Ice Cream Sandwich” would launch “towards the end of the year.” In time for the next Nexus?
