I was reading through this Phandroid blog: New Nexus device to be based on HTC Droid Incredible X [RUMOR] And it brought up the old article back in May about the 5 Nexii devices [Breaking] Google to release 5 Nexus devices on November 5th to celebrate Android’s 5th birthday | TalkAndroid.com Didn't realize that a date was targeted! This makes it very interesting. Although, I'm assuming all the phones that Google will be selling through the Play Store will be unlocked GSM phones, it still makes me intrigued if they'll also make US Carrier specific versions available at that time also. That would fall somewhat in line with the Optimus G (Eclipse) being brought to the US as one of the Nexus phones because of the timeline. Also, considering ATT's version passed through the FCC with the same specs (minus the different radios), it really makes me wonder if this rumor was pretty accurate.
