An interesting question was put to Google's Android guru Andy Rubin today at I/O: will phones need more processing muscle to cope with the holographic UI in Ice Cream Sandwich? His answer came with an unexpected treat. Not only did he say faster processors might possibly be needed, though they'd like older phones to get the updates too, he teased that a new Nexus might be in the pipeline to showcase everything Ice Cream Sandwich has to offer.
"The Nexus has been the thing that we used to set the bar, and there's always going to be new ones coming out in the market...we'll make an announcement at some point in the future."
So no official confirmation yet, but I for one will take Andy's word for it
