none of us know but it sounds exciting and hopefully is thought through and I will buy an XL anyway to see ...won't you?
Why is Nexus so irrelevant? I know I'm an Apple rounding error but I have one + Project Fi and wouldn't change for anything.
+@AndroidPolice however even with a new product strategy, will still stay irrelevant IMHO.
+@AndroidPolice there are rumors that the Pixel phones will not have stock Android. @google might add light layer on top.
irrelevant? the 6p is still popular a full cycle later
android fregmentation is a mess that 'll only be solved by adopting apple's modl by building both software&hardware by google
Irrelevant in sales, relevant to developers. Three small dots on Pixel by camera = VR motion/spatial tracking? Hmm...
little point developing for something with no sales
Development for chipset- specific integration scaling across Android ecosystem. {Snapdrago/Daydream/Tango} et.al.
It’s the latter, in a big way.
+@AndroidPolice that's the real question. I hope it is a true product strategy and direction. Ref Pixel C.
May be shift to platform focus--every Pixel branded device would run Android the same as every MS Surface runs Windows.
#Google may make #Android proprietary in 2017 and blame Oracle when developers complain. techpinions.com/google-android…
Just another vapourware hardware!
+@AndroidPolice if Google wants to sell HW, it should start by learning what selling HW is actually like. They don't know.
Are you sure mysterious cargo ships illegally moored in SF bay isn't the trick? :)
