Some more bizarre news might be coming out of this whole Lenovo/Motorola acquisition story going on. According to leakster Eldar Murtazin, Lenovo will be responsible for making one of the final Nexus devices (whether that’ll be a phone or a tablet). It’s an interesting revelation, if true. Lenovo has had little success outside of their home market of China, so one has to wonder if they’ll be using Motorola’s prowess to help them achieve a device worthy of donning the Nexus name.
Also lending credence to Motorola being the likely source for this supposed Lenovo Nexus is belief by Murtazin that the product will heavily focus on North American markets. That certainly wouldn’t bode well for Lenovo if we’re judging their history in the region, so it’s likely they’ll be putting Motorola to task for this supposed device.
Of concern is that Murtazin is continuing to beat the “Nexus is dying” drum. That particular rumor came out by the same guy earlier this week, with Murtazin suggesting Google will retire the brand to make way for Google Play Edition products. It’d be a sad day to see that happen, but we apparently wouldn’t see the earliest of this move until 2015.
