A continuing point of discussion, rumor, idle speculation, is the future of the Nexus device program. Android Silver is potentially on the horizon but according to Dave Burke, head of Android engineering and the Nexus program at Google, who was speaking to ReadWrite, that doesn't mean that Nexus devices will be killed off.
"People have been commenting about Nexus because there is something else and they think that means the end of Nexus. That is the totally wrong conclusion to make"
Burke wouldn't comment on what lies ahead for Android Silver beyond saying:
"Android Silver is not something that we are commenting on right now. But the prospect of Silver doesn't mean that Nexus is going away."
While there was nothing beyond rumor that actually ever really suggested that Nexus devices would come to an end, it's nevertheless comforting to hear such news from someone in the know. Android L will be released later on this year and if we're going to see a new Nexus, that's when we'd expect to get it.
