A report from London newspaper City A.M. suggests that Google already has created a follow-up to the Nexus One in collaboration with a yet unknown manufacturer, and that the new device will be out before Christmas. The Google branded handset is said to not be sold by Google itself like the original Nexus, but by Carphone Warehouse in the UK who already sells unlocked phones. Best Buy might be a possible reseller in the U.S., since it’s a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse.
According to City A.M., an anonymous industry source said “It could be a solution to the problems it experienced when it tried to sell the Nexus One exclusively through its website. People like to be able to go to a store – this solves that.” The publication further states that the upcoming Google device obviously will run the latest and greatest version of Android: Gingerbread. There are no rumored hardware specifications, but considering the Nexus One was one of the most powerful Androids when it arrived, its successor will likely pack some serious heat.
Is this yet another exciting phone rumor that might not be true, like the PlayStation Phone story? Well, time will surely tell and we’ll keep you posted.
