That said, the distributors, our open market, do bring in the device, that?s how Cellucity got it? and that will still be the same this year. We?re doing the Nexus again this year, by the way.?
On the other hand, HTC is also rumored to manufacture devices for Google. These devices are supposed to be dubbed as S1 ?Sailship? and M1 ?Marlin?. In another report, PhoneArena says that one of these devices could feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset.
