Additionally, the Nexus One's ability to easily load custom ROMs made it a geekworld favorite, even though it voided the phone's warranty to load something else on it. In my eyes, the ability to continue being one of the leading smartphones in terms of hardware and features after being launched over 6 months ago, makes the Nexus One a truly amazing device. Perhaps some other companies will take note of the many smartphone users who favor "vanilla" Android and start producing some devices with at least the option to disable custom UIs and other clutter."
Back in the end of 2009, the rumors were all about Google getting into the phone business. Previously Google offered what were called Android Developer Phones, starting with the HTC G1- the beginning of the Android Era. Then came the Original Nexus series starting with the Nexus One- introduced at the beginning of 2010. Nexus Devices are considered as Google's flagship Android products. The history of Android is directly linked with the Nexus series. Each Nexus device was introduced to showcase latest versions of Android. It shows the evolution of Android over the years and how the hardware Android runs on has changed and improved.Also they are the first Android devices to receive updates to the operating system. Let's see the Nexus Smartphone series- starting with the Nexus One to the newly announced Nexus 6.
Engadget: Just to throw a little more fuel on the fire, it turns out that directing your browser to now.sprint.com/nexus takes you to a landing site where you're told that "this page will be ready soon." Certainly sounds more likely than ever that Sprint's preparing to launch its own variant of the Nexus S -- and if our sources are correct, it'll be called the Nexus S 4G, likely with both CDMA and WiMAX on board.
GYGG: "Android 3.0, also referred to as Honeycomb is a version of Android that was to be specific to Android tablets. However, it seems that the hacking community will never accept “no” as an answer. How have they retaliated this time? They have ported the tablet OS to the Google Nexus One. It may not be the first phone to receive this treatment but it is by far the most monumental."
