It isn’t really the newest of rumors – we’ve all been speculating on what Samsung has to announce since invites to the New York City event were sent out – but it sounds like one of our buddies are pretty sure that it’s going to be a “Google experience” phone that’ll hit multiple carriers. According to Taylor from Android & Me, the phone will indeed be dubbed the Nexus Two and will run Android “2.3” Gingerbread. We’ll see Samsung taking a completely hands-off approach to the software.
One commenter points out that the announcement coincides with the release of the first Windows Phone 7 devices here in the states. Coincidence? I can’t say, but if Samsung were mindful of their competitors (as any successful company should be), we can’t see them announcing a device like the Samsung Continuum at an exclusive media event such as this. (Nothing against the Continuum, but it just doesn’t look like a blockbuster device, and that’s exactly what Samsung likes to announce at these events.)
We’ll just have to wait and see come November 8th where it’s expected that this announcement will be made in conjunction with the official unveiling of Android Gingerbread. The little guy is already on the front lawn of building 44, so we’re already halfway there.
