Google to partner with different OEMs to sell upcoming Nexus devices
| by Aaron Almeida |
Reports about Google’s next flagship handset have already started to trickle in, even though their current handset has not reached our shores, yet. If one is planning on purchasing the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, then they may want to save their cash for another device, as the handset may not make its way to India, after all. However, it appears that plans are being put in place for the next flagship Googlephone with the Wall Street Journal reporting that in a bid to combat wireless carriers from controlling the sales of their handset, the brand will give five manufacturers, early access to the Jelly Bean OS, which will allow them to sell the Nexus branded handsets directly to consumers.

They go on to state that this strategy will exert more control over key features and apps that will run on Android devices, such as tablets and smartphones. The report goes on to state that sources have informed them saying, “Now Google will work with as many as five manufacturers at a time to create a portfolio of "Nexus" lead devices that include smartphones and tablets, said a person familiar with the matter. Google also plans to sell the gadgets directly to consumers in the U.S., Europe and Asia through its website, and potentially through some retailers.”

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
