    Lightbulb Google Nexus Two out in Europe in time for the holidays? [Rumor]



    British business paper City A.M. claims a Gingerbread-powered Google Nexus Two will launch in time for the holidays and will be available in the UK as a Carphone Warehouse exclusive. Considering Google CEO Eric Schmidt stated pretty plainly over the summer that there were no plans for a second Google-branded phone, we’re skeptical at best.

    The report cites an unnamed industry source in saying, “It looks like Google is experimenting with the future of its mobile model in the UK. It tried releasing through a single carrier, now it is trying a single retailer. It could be a solution to the problems it experienced when it tried to sell the Nexus One exclusively through its website. People like to be able to go to a store — this solves that.”

    The second coming of Google’s failed direct-sales experiment will apparently not be manufactured by HTC, the company responsible for building Google’s Nexus One, pictured above. The report does not indicate which company might be responsible for manufacturing the Nexus Two, however, saying only that the phone would likely not be made by Samsung.

    I wish this was true but I imagine it's more likely that it will just be the existing Nexus One as carphone warehouse don't seem to sell this as it is.

    Alternatively, if I'm really optimistic, this could be the Google iPad rival running gingerbread, sold exclusively through Carphone warehouse! Just think no-one knew anything about Nexus One until about 4 - 5 weeks before it's release, its totally viable that this could happen!
    Nothing is perfect, but we must not lose faith in perfection. If we did, everything would be a whole lot worse than it is now!

    Gizmodo is an absolute joke.
    Take anything you read there with a Mack Truck full of salt.

    They're like those annoying commenters who post "FIRST!@#". They just toss whatever they hear out there without any sort of fact checking.

    Don't get me wrong, this could be 100% legitimate but I wouldn't take Gizmodo as the only source. I do realize that a million other tech blogs have written about this too so it may well happen.
