Sorry, I really will shut up about this now. Until next time ;-)
I agree that I find it dumb that they went with Nexus S and even dumber with Galaxy Nexus for their 2nd and 3rd generation models. Though Nexus One doesn't follow the template when written, it does follow it when spoken because you wouldn't say it as "Nexus O-N-E". I am anxious to see what will happen when they hit the 7th generation phone due to tablet naming scheme, though I suspect they'll exepct that they'll either change the sequence by then, or expect us to forget thay they've already used that name before.
