Google is recruiting Android enthusiasts to staff a "Nexus call center," according to reports from Geek.com. Google is said to be using a third-party company to recruit from campuses in the San Francisco Bay Area, in time for the next Nexus launch.
An advertisement doesn't mention Google by name, but an ad mentioning a "confidential client" in the Mountain View area, which recently launched an Android tablet doesn't leave much to the imagination. Geek.com reports that it's sources say Google is aiming to have this Nexus call center fully staffed and trained by the end of the month.
A dedicated Nexus call center for its upcoming flagship phone would help Google to bolster its customer service credentials, an area that's been singled out for criticism when earlier Nexus devices launched. It's also adds more weight to recent reports of an LG-built Nexus being announced, and possibly launched, in late October.
