    My guess is price drop on the nexus 4 and a new 32GB model at 349$

    perhaps a refresh in the nexus 7 line up

    android 4.3 or 5.0 keylime pie

    and a better fleshed out version of the Nexus Q

    I wish i had $900 to spare for the google I/O ticket :thumbdown:

    Nexus 5 6 months after the Nexus 4 would be.. different. I hope it's Android 5.0!

    I'm hoping for a high end Nexus by HTC or Motorola. Complete with a 5 inch screen but still pretty easy to handle, similar to the DNA in size. Toped of with some Key Lime pie...

    I'd be super excited for a high end model, maybe priced differently then the Nexus 4 with potentially more memory.

    I don't remember about the Nexus S, but the Nexus One, Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4 were all introduced around November. I/O is usually more about new versions-upticks of Android, so probably key Lime Pie.

    Well, first of all, remember that Google I/O is more than just about Android, and definitely more than about the Nexus line. There are Chrome (and Chrome OS), search, Wallet, Google Plus (and Hangout), Maps, coding for Chrome OS and Android, Glass, and any number of other products and services.

    I doubt very much any new version of the Nexus hardware gets announced. I don't think Google wants to confuse users in a shorter-than-one-year timeline. There may be things on the software end, like Android 5.0.

    I bet it will have more to do with Google branded 4g network

    Maybe can't love something that you have no idea about, but if Google touches it it normally turns to gold

    Forget htc & motorola as the next maker use either Samsung or lg,...apple already makes a profit off of HTC and Motorola is too verizonish based nowadays, use either samsung,lg,or even a real google built device chosen by what consumers want based on polls and past history on what worked and what didn't,..Samsung currently makes chips for iPhones so maybe steal something from apples buffet of device technology...just my opinion

    Google owns Motorola. A Motorola Nexus would be great. Google from the drawing board to the manufacturing. That would truly be a Google phone.

    Ear to the ground my man....Google is in love with Tmobile.

    Hint Hint...Google is definitely looking to scoop up a wireless network, Tmobile would fit there needs very well. Weirder things have happened.

    Indeed... Straight from the Ground up! And with Google owning Moto for some time now I can definitely see this happening rather sooner then later.

    Also Moto can 100% handle customer demand, we all know what's going on right now with LG not being able to meet demand with the Nexus 4

    thread moved to Android Lounge since it isn't specific to the Nexus 4

    Thanks!

    I would like to see a Google Isis partnership so my phone can get Google Wallet again. I miss it. I like the sound of a Google carrier as well, but doubt I will ever see it in the rural south. :(

    If Google could ship the Razr HD with stock Android, you'd have your Motorola Nexus. There's probably something contractual with Verizon that prevents them from doing that though.

    I agree that the only Nexus hardware that will likely be launched will be a followup to the Q. The 7 could be updated too, but it's still outspeccing the Nook, Kindle, and the ipad mini.

    Yeah but Google would not want to keep legacy networks going that's why I think the deal with DirecTV is more likely

    A lot of rumours here that Sony will be doing the next nexus device (don't know whether a phone or tablet) so if KLP is launched I reckon it could be on that... don't forget there has been news reports saying that the Nexus line can now be on multiple phones so doesn't really matter the LG only came out a few months before.
