Speculations of a new Google phone beeing released this year, has appeared in a London-based financial newspaper.

Google’s first phone, the Nexus One (see above) , was built by HTC and released with a lot of media attention in early 2010. But the phone did not achieve the impact that many thought, and instead became a popular phone for developers.

London-based City A.M. says in an article that a sequel is now under way and will be sold through Carphone Warehouse stores.

An industry source said: “It looks like Google is experimenting with the future of its mobile model in the UK. It tried releasing through a single carrier, now it is trying a single retailer.

“It could be a solution to the problems it experienced when it tried to sell the Nexus One exclusively through its website. People like to be able to go to a store – this solves that.”

The information from their sources is that it is supplied with the latest version of Android, codenamed Gingerbread, and that it will be for sale in time for Christmas. The information is not confirmed by Google or Carphone, but according to City A.M. the phone will be called Nexus Two.
