No, Google Isn't Going To Kill Its Nexus Devices

Carrier-friendly phones via the Android Silver program should debut next year, but Nexus phones and tablets will also endure.

 

Rumors of the demise of Google's Nexus line of "pure Android" devices have been greatly exaggerated. When Google launches the official release of the new version Android L later this year, expect a new Nexus device as well.

 

True, Google is changing the way it rolls out high-end Android smartphones.

We'll have to wait and see. Some people are speculating that Google will not release a Nexus phone. That doesn't mean they're killing the Nexus line though.
