so updates will come running without even asking...Optimus G is a beast and beats almost everything so if it comes under google's nourishment it will be icing on cake

I certainly hope we do get more than one Nexus phone. If nothing else it would lower their price. Galaxy Nexus is quite expensive in Sweden for some reason.

So weve got Sony, Samsung And Lg mentioned - a bit ironic then that motorola now owned by google is the only top company not to be included in the nexus developments!

LG with vanilla android will make it much easier to update for them... it might be the right move for LG

LG Nexus? No thanks! LG just likes to experiment with latest hardware.. no updates to OS!
