Beyond the Nexus: Does Google Have More Android Goodies Tucked Away?

Google seems to have held little back about its Nexus One smartphone, if leaked documents are the real deal. That has led to speculation that it may have more surprises in store for its Android-related press event scheduled for next Tuesday. Changes to the open source mobile operating system, perhaps? More handsets built by other manufacturers?

Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) will be introducing its Nexus One smartphone device next Tuesday, it appears certain. Not that Google has said as much: All the the company has announced is that it will hold an “Android related” press conference on Jan. 5, a day identified in prior rumor accounts as the Google phone’s launch date.

It Feels Right

Everything about the announcement — the timing of it, prior leaks about the strategy Download Free eBook - The Edge of Success: 9 Building Blocks to Double Your Sales, and the expected Tuesday preview — makes sense.

“They are being smart announcing it before CES,” Scott Testa, a business professor at Cabrini College, told TechNewsWorld.

There will almost certainly be several mobile announcements of comparable excitement value at the conference, he suggested. “The future of computing is mobile — the industry knows that and is moving towards it.”

Former Partners?

The only surprise left is how — or whether — Google intends to soothe its Android partners’ bruised feelings, said Testa. “This is something that could easily cause a rift with partners that took a chance on Android, invested in it, only to see Google compete with them. If I am Motorola (NYSE: MOT) or T-Mobile, I would not be happy right now at all.”

Google appears to have no shame, however, he remarked. “If anything, this shows it is willing to go aggressively after the markets it wants.”

Still, it will probably want to make some kind of overture to keep its partners happy, he said.
