Google and Carphone Warehouse working on Nexus Two?

Google CEO Eric Schmidt was pretty clear when he said the company "didn't have to" make a second Nexus-series smartphone back in July, but according to UK business paper City AM all that has changed.  It's claimed Google is working with retailer Carphone Warehouse in the UK on the Google Nexus Two.
"It looks like Google is experimenting with the future of its mobile model in the UK. It tried releasing through a single carrier, now it is trying a single retailer.  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" anonymous source
Unknown at present is who the OEM behind the Google-branded device might be - rumors of Samsung have apparently been debunked - but the sources claim the Nexus Two will run Gingerbread.

Droidrover uses Nexus One to control NASA rover [Video]

We love Android, we love remote-control toys, and so this Droidrover project presses all the right buttons.  You can't really describe it as a toy, though; it's actually the handiwork of several of the team at NASA Ames Research. Basically, they're remotely-controlling a Senseta rover from a Google Nexus One, with an Arduino and Bluetooth in-between.  The Arduino and Android pairing apparently makes for a much smaller controller bundle, which in turn means the rover is lighter, more manoeuvrable and uses less power.  It's also a reasonably priced alternative; including a Nexus One, it all came to under $600 (though that doesn't include the rover itself).
