Eric Schmidt: No Google Nexus Two

Talk of follow-up to Google's own Android phone crushed from the very top.

Still umming and aahing over that Nexus One? Waiting for the inevitable Nexus Two to land before making your move? Well, tough. Google’s CEO has said that such a device will never exist, saying he’s quite happy to leave things as they are.

Speaking in an interview with the Telegraph, Schmidt said, “It [Nexus One] was so successful, we didn't have to do a second one. We would view that as positive but people criticised us heavily for that. I called up the board and said: 'Ok, it worked. Congratulations - we're stopping'.”

It’s certainly an unusual take on success. Surely, if the Nexus One has been such a winner, why isn’t Google beavering away on a new one to show its Open Handset Alliance pals how it’s done? After all the Nexus One is supposed to blaze a trail for others to follow.

By the time Android Gingerbread lands, the Nexus One will be almost a year old. In smartphone terms, that’s positively ancient. Is Schmidt serious? Or is this just a bluff to ward off rivals? Give us your tuppence worth on Facebook and Twitter now.
