The Nexus One successor rumors kicked into high gear last night thanks to a City AM article. According to them, Google and Carphone Warehouse are are planning to release a new handset as early as this year. It is said that this phone will release with Gingerbread and may not come from HTC or Samsung. Naturally, everyone said to be involved in the deal (Google, Carphone Warehouse) are remaining tight-lipped.
Looking back at the last few months, we don’t see much to indicate Google would try another handset. The Nexus One forums are going away, the store is closed, and things look wrapped up. On the surface, it appears it’s all in the past. We’ll find out one way or another if City AM’s intel proves correct.
