New chatter calls for death of Nexus line

Nexus 8 Chromium issue tracker

If you have been patiently waiting for Google to release the latest Nexus device, well, we have some “unofficially” sad news.  Renowned leaker @Evleaks has taken to Twitter with two separate tweets, one is sad, but one provides some light at the end of the tunnel.

Nexus 1 Nexus 2

 

We have been hearing this for awhile now, but with Evleaks backing this up, it might as well be true.  However, Android Silver looks to be a Nexus like program.  Silver is a program that requires a smartphone to adhere to certain requirements such as, pre-loaded apps and timely updates.  In return, Google would offer to help pay for advertising and in-store placements for devices.

Nothing is official until we hear it from Google, but coming from Evleaks, it just might be.  I know I am sad to see the “Nexus” go, but maybe this is opening new doors for more manufactures to create devices that can compete along side the big dogs.  Let us know what you think in the comments below!
