02 LG could be the next Google Nexus handset maker

ZDNet has said that LG are in the midst of discussions with Google about being the next Nexus maker, but it remains unclear for now as to whether or not they will score. HTC were given honours to present us with the first Google phone (the Nexus One), followed by Samsung with its lovely 4.65-inch Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich attire.

It was previously speculated that the most likely candidate for a new Nexus device would be Motorola which Google is currently in the process of acquiring. It was thought that following the acquisition Google would only allow Motorola to have access to all of its latest Android updates, but if Google hand balls the next Nexus deal over to LG then it just goes to show that the company doesn't intend to play favourites.
