Rumors around the purported Nexus Two release are heating up. In a post on Android and Me, Taylor Wimberly has reported that Samsung, not HTC, will announce the N2 on 8th November and will be responsible for the hardware part of the phone. This news comes from various “trusted sources”.

From the post:
Something big is coming and I think you will want to know the full details before you get tied up in another 2-year contract with your carrier.
I have spoke with multiple, trusted sources familiar with the project who have shared the same story with me. They wish to remain anonymous.
Google and Samsung will announce the “Nexus Two” at a press conference on November 8th in New York city. The phone will be the first device to ship with stock Gingerbread (Android 2.3) and it will be available soon on multiple carriers.
If the multiple, trusted sources are to be believed, the “new Android device” to be unveiled at Samsung Mobile’s conference on November 8th in New York will actually be the Nexus Two. It is expected to run on next generation hardware (dual-core CPU, dedicated GPU and double the standard RAM, maybe?) along with Android 2.3 / 3.0 “Gingerbread” software.
We all know how well Samsung did with their Galaxy S series. Over 5 millions units of the device have been sold since release and the number keeps increasing thanks to the super-fast hardware and great software experience.
But wait… what if the “new Android device” is actually the mind-blowing Galaxy S2?
All valid questions. We will, however, have to wait till November 8th for the answers. Stay tuned, readers!
