This photo looks old and scratched out, but it bears both logos, Sony and Google. That’s enough to brand it a Nexus. And it’s doing rounds on the blogs with a claim that it’s a Sony Nexus. The picture below looks a bit better, though not really 2012.
Still not comforting, is it? This device looks like it runs stock Android 4.0 or 4.1, and it sure is a Sony, an ugly Sony. We would then just go ahead to assume it to be a prototype device that is too far from finished to expose the final design. Just like they did with the Galaxy S III prototype that was doing rounds weeks before the launch of the real one, which was quite different. All the same, a Sony Nexus wouldn’t be a bad idea, considering Sony has been on a design spree releasing very nice designs of smartphones. Only that some other issues prevent it from being a competitor with the big boys.
