Google has a Nexus-related surprise for us, we have no idea what it is

Oh Google, you big tease! If being less than two weeks from Google I/O isn’t enough to get your heart racing, Google has gone ahead and tweeted that they have a surprise for us today. The tweet came from the Google Nexus Twitter account so we’re guessing the surprise is Nexus-related.

I can only think of one thing they could announce related to the Nexus S, its availability from more carriers. AT&T? Who knows? Other than that, I have no idea what they could announce, which makes it even more exciting. Could it be a free, ad-supported Nexus? Google is buying Sprint? Are they finally turning on Skynet? All very possible scenarios.

With that said, we’ll probably know pretty soon, and as soon as we do we’ll tell you all about it. Meanwhile, keep refreshing that Google Nexus Twitter page like the rest of us.

UPDATE: Google Voice integration with Sprint just went live, could this be? Hopefully not.

    Maybe they’re going to have a contest to win a Sprint Nexus S? Or maybe announce availability for the AT&T Nexus S.

    Nexus 3 !

    • Alberto Vildosola

      We can only dream.

  • http://Website dan1431

    I would not mind an official at&t Nexus S…but I think the tablet is more likely.


  • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

    Really happy I have a Nexus S in my pocket right now. Hope it’s a new software update.

    My other guess would be a Nexus S 4G for AT&T.

  • http://droidsamurai.blogspot.com PixelSlave

    Nexus M with the M rotated clockwise by 90 degree, ie, Nexus 3 from Motorola. Even better, make it available on Verizon with LTE, please.

    Yeah, that’s a dream with little chance to become a reality.

    • http://Website Mwm

      You mean Nexus E -.-

  • http://Website Jeff Self

    Google buying Sprint would be awesome!

    • http://Website Diablo

      If so, then I doubt it would be a tweet coming from the Google Nexus account.

  • http://Website iDavey

    Its clearly gonna be a contest for Sprint’s Nexus. Nothing else seems important enough.

    If it was a new Nexus phone or tablet, leaks would’ve been about already.

  • http://Website JamieB

    I’m still enjoying my Nexus One quite a bit.

    I’ll just wish for some more updates for the one and only original! lol..

      Ha made my day right there, bravo sir.

    Three weeks ago there was a report about a shipment from LG to Google for 5300 units of something, due for arrival on April 27. My guess is that it’s the Nexus tablet that’s been rumored.

    • Alberto Vildosola

      Mmmh interesting, I’m putting my money down for this or the AT&T Nexus S.

    • http://Website 2C

      My guess is that the G2x is going to become the first dual core developer phone and they are going to release gingerbread 2.4 optimized for dual core processors.

  • http://Website bimbon

    I wished Google brought T-mobile lol haha

  • http://Website kyle

    Not likely but a verizon lte nexus s would be sweet!

  • http://Website R.S.

    So far, a lot of good guesses, with some wild ones as well. Lol

    I’m going to go with the white Nexus S being made available for NA. :-D

  • MitchRapp81

    prolly Gingerbread 2.3.4 (video chat enabled in gtalk) for Nexus S

    as for the “Nexus Tablet” idea –> XOOM is the Nexus Tablet buddy. Pure google, first to get updates, no moto crap on it.

    • http://Website Hans

      Actually,the Moto Xoom is like the Moto Droid. :) First device with a new OS version, completely stock. So, there’s a chance for a Nexus tablet. :D

  • http://Website humpty4321

    It could be the nexus 3 that was talked about before from LG hope… All we know its going to be something good!

  • http://www.devinbaldwin.com db

    Free Nexus S 4G for all who have pre-ordered? Please?

  • http://Website Bruno Campos

    Obviously is not a new Tablet (Nexus Tab) neither a new Nexus phone. All that stuff are reserve for the next I/O.

  • MitchRapp81

    it must really be something small, like video chat in gtalk for 2.3 devices. 3.0 gtalk is awesome.

  • http://Website bruno

    I hope it is not for US only !!!
    Nexus S is Worldwide ;-)

  • http://twitter.com/YannDinendal Yann Dìnendal

    Video chat + another surprise! :D woot!

    “Android 2.3.4 OTA rolling out over the next few weeks! Has bug fixes for Nexus One, video chat for Nexus S. But a surprise is still to come!”

  • http://AT&T???? Steve

    Who cares? In the UK it is available on all carriers…. and all of our carriers offer a quality data service…. What are you guys mucking around at over there? Surely all carriers should offer good service? I just don’t get it….
    Wedding tomorrow – hoorah!

    My guess is a pure vanila HTC Sensation or a new Sensation-like Nexus device. I saw a pic on one of the sites a while back that looks similar to the Sensation but instead of HTC on the back cover it had Google. So most likely there is a pure vanila Google version of the Sensation…if true then hope it has Tmo bands and also unlocked. at least one can hope…..
