There have been a number of rumours this year that Google may be planning to release more than one Nexus device in celebration of the five-year anniversary of Android. These rumours intensified this week when a leaked roadmap for Japanese operator NTT DoCoMo appeared to suggest several Nexus devices are planned from LG, Samsung and Sony.
The Sony Xperia Nexus (SO-04E) appears on this roadmap. If true, it would represent a watershed moment for the Android community. However, given the recent news of Google looking to add the Sony Xperia S to its list of phones for direct AOSP support, the existence of a Xperia Nexus device may not be such a farfetched idea. Despite this, we would treat this firmly as a rumour for now as there has been very little evidence of such a device so far.
Thanks to all that sent this in!
