"Perhaps from others (probably mostly trolls), but I would understand." Yes, definitely from others(trolls). I am not saying these people will do it.
Sony, Motorola and LG are still not picked and there was a news about Asus/HTC trying to win the bid!!
I understand the frustration about other manufacturer not getting picked but mind it its still rumor!!
Well it is rumored that ASUS is doing the Nexus Tablet,
And isn't LG a newcomer to the Android market? I haven't really heard anything from them until recently.
I did forget about Sony, and wouldn't mind seeing a Sony Xperia Nexus, but I still think Motorola should get a crack at it first. I really believe that Android wouldn't have taken off as well as it did without them. ** At least not in the North American market...
(And note... I'm not even a motorola fan... I think all their phones are fugly, but they do have good build quality. Would just like to see them get a shot at a nexus)
