Google’s Head of Engineering and the Nexus program, Dave Burke, has confirmed in an interview that the company’s Nexus line up is still active, suggesting that the Nexus lovers will see at least one new Nexus device in 2014.
The official has denied earlier reports that the company is working on a new Android Silver project and would discard its Nexus line. The official said that the company is simultaneously working on the Android Silver project along with the Nexus hardware line.
The one team of Google’s engineers is working on the open source code for new Android version, while another team is simultaneously designing a new Nexus device.
Burke has been quoted saying in a interview that “When we are working, there are sort of two outputs. We’re building a Nexus device and we’re building the open source code. There is no way you can build the open source code without the phone or tablet or whatever you are building. You have to live and breathe the code you are developing.”
He further added that “You can’t build a platform in the abstract, you have to build a device (or devices). So, I don’t think it can or will ever go away. And then, I think Nexus is also interesting in that it is a way of us explaining how we think Android should run. It is a statement, almost a statement of purity in some respects. I don’t see why we would ever turn away from that, it wouldn’t make sense.”
