Hrm. I guess no more Nexuses (Nexii?) or Moto Xs? We need someone to champion the pure Android experience with timely updates (a la Apple and iOS)!

this is not exactly related to the nexus 5 in any way, so i guess mods will move this thread.

anyways, i was just reading about it too on android police http://www.androidpolice.com/2014/01...d-china-daily/

Google bought Motorola mainly for the patents and not fot their plants. Google doesn`t want to be a (indirect) phone manufacterer. Thats why they made a deal with Samsung so that they can use and profit from each others patents. I think and hope that the Nexus line will continue to show what the software should look like.

This quote from Page is somewhat ambiguous

As a side note, this does not signal a larger shift for our other hardware efforts

But that being said, I don't think this has anything to do with the LG manufactured Nexus 5
