Nexus Two

Nexus Two Delayed due to Hardware Issue?

We have heard numerous reports of Google working with Samsung to develop the next Google-made Android device, known to the internet as the Nexus Two. The phone was expected to be coming here soon, with rumors pointing at a launch alongside with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. However, things may not be all so good.

Samsung deny Nexus Two involvement

Samsung has denied being involved in producing the Google Nexus Two, telling Danawa that the rumors are "simply not true."  In-the-wild reports of a Nexus Two prototype surfaced last week, suggesting that Google and Samsung had collaborated on a device closely resembling a Galaxy S family handset. That handset, according to the tipster's description, was wedge-shaped and used a Super AMOLED panel, together with a new version of Android that was in a "buggy" condition. [via MobileBurn]

Samsung Google Nexus Two gets in the wild report?

Rumors of a Google Nexus Two - despite CEO Eric Schmidt's previous denial that one was in the pipeline - continue to grow, with Gizmodo having heard from a tipster who apparently got to play with the Samsung-made device.  Like the Galaxy S family, it's apparently made from black, glossy plastic and "feels really similar to the Galaxy S in a lot [of] ways," though the back has "got this curve to it." There's also a roughly 4-inch display, which the source believes to be Super AMOLED, and a "sort of concave" front panel.  A front-facing video camera is the only confirmed hardware spec, with no word on the CPU or which "really buggy" stock build of Android the Nexus Two was running.  Note, the picture above is a mock-up.

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.

Followup Google-Branded Phone to be Launched before Christmas 2010

According to the business paper City AM, the second Google-branded mobile phone will touch down in the UK just in time for Christmas, released on an exclusive deal with Carphone Warehouse. An industry source said thus: “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.” Wowie zowie.

Motorola A955 Passes Through WiFi Alliance

There's only one thing we know for an absolute certainty at this point: Motorola has a successor to the Droid coming out. What we don't know, however, what it looks like, or what it will even be called. There's some talk that the Motorola Shadow, which recently popped up again on the radar, is, in fact, the Droid 2 and not the Nexus Two as originally believed. But, there's been some additional developments, and now we're just baffled.
