Rumour: Nexus Two Will Be Announced On Nov 8

Citing unnamed sources, Android and Me is reporting that the Nexus Two will be announced by Samsung at a November 8 press conference, the same day Windows Phone 7 launches. Google meets Galaxy S? Sounds like a pretty potent combo.

The rumour has it that Samsung will start shipping the new device "soon" and that it'll be the first preloaded with Gingerbread (Android 3.0). The Nexus Two will also apparently be available on multiple carriers, although there's no word yet as to which, specifically.

At the very least, the timing's right for Gingerbread to make an appearance. And Samsung's Galaxy S smartphones have been among the best in class lately. But will Samsung be willing to abandon their Galaxy S skin for the purported Nexus Two to deliver a pure Android experience? If HTC could give up Sense for the Nexus One, I don't see why not.

We'll find out either way in a week and a half. This is one of those rumours that I'm crossing my fingers extra hard for; the world could use Samsung Galaxy S hardware with a pure Android experience. Or at least, I could. [Android and Me]
