I swear The Verge turned off comments because they were tired of getting yelled at for screwing up posts like this.
"The goal, says Sony, is to develop new software "from the ground up," meaning no Google Play Services or superfluous apps, just the core Google communications software and Sony's stack of custom apps like Camera, Music, and Xperia Lounge."
The second half of this sentence contradicts the first. You can't have Google apps without Google Play Services—they wouldn't work. Also releasing Android without Google Play Services would be in violation of the "anti-fragmentation clause" in their MADA contract and Google would pull their Google Play license.
They don't even link to the actual Sony blog post so people can get the correct information. (it's here: http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2015/07/22/launching-sonys-concept-for-android-initiative-in-sweden/ )
IF The Verge had comments turned on, this post would be getting ripped to shreds. Now they can misinform people in peace.
I wish Google took other social stuff (like Instant Messaging) as seriously at it once took Google+. Other companies are investing billions here and Hangouts continues to be neglected.
Now with today's report, I am more confident in that rumor.
What's more interesting, the source also mentioned a second Nexus phone this year - an LG, with a planned 5.2" screen size. If Google indeed rolls with both, it'd be the first time two Nexus phones came out in the same year - a strategy that makes a whole lot of sense to me as not everyone is into behemoths like a Nexus 6.
It's still extremely early in the year, and last year, as we've seen, plans changed drastically throughout the year and resulted in a totally different phone becoming a Nexus than was planned in the first half of 2014. So yeah, early rumors are early rumors, don't treat them as facts, and they're almost surely going to change.
Once I feel confident enough in these rumors, they'll graduate to .
Google should give all Nexus 9 users some Google Play credit for this mess.
I booted mine up yesterday, and it was so laggy, it was absolutely unusable. Worse than Asus tablets or the Nexus 7 2012, which is an absolute dog. Great investment, eh?
More than an iPhone 6 Plus 128GB, more than a MacBook Air, more than a 60-inch TV.
For a smartwatch.
