Out go Nexus devices, in come Pixel Smartphones

Earlier in the week we got information that Google is dropping the Nexus programme, article linked below.

Well turns our they weren’t exactly dropping but renaming the project, or so I think, I’m yet to see the difference beyond the name for Nexus and the new naming line-up, Pixel Smartphones, other than the name and the part where Pixel XL is actually a Chromecast dongle and not a larger smartphone.

Put the blame on HTC, manufacturers of Google’s Nexus line of phones. Their own M9 performed terribly. I will be shocked if Google sticks with HTC in their rebranded Pixel phones!

There are strong indicators they are, interestingly.
