DigitTimes ties Samsung, LG, Sony and HTC to Nexus rumors

Adding fuel to the growing fire that is the Nexus program, DigiTimes is today reporting that Samsung, LG, Sony, and HTC are “likely to be potential partners”. The entire post might read a little ‘lost in translation’ as it calls the initiative the “Nexus 7″ platform but we get what they are saying.  Nevertheless, they advise that the four partners are planning to launch smartphones around the program.

Google reportedly will allow branded vendors to set hardware specifications as well as looks of the forthcoming Nexus smartphones as long as the models are based on its latest native Android system, said the sources, adding that this approach seems to be acceptable to brand players, since Google apparently is keeping its promise of not offering preferential treatment to Motorola.

While this is not exactly new or groundbreaking stuff, it does match up with a recent string of reports.
