Among the most followers of technology always is very high esteem the Nexus range from the Nexus 7. It offers us a remarkable quality product without being leading, with a very good update support at a price that is very difficult to compete.
At the moment only are going to find in mobile and tablets, which is expected to be updated soon. But a comment from one of the readers made us jump the spark: does it make sense that the Nexus are in other products?
More than portable devices
Take into account how the Nexus line: Google instructs a manufacturer a model and it will be who is in charge of selling it through Google Play in addition to software support. This model is very beloved among fans of the technology and also serves as a reference for developers. The manufacturer will be happy because the economies of scale will allow you to lower costs and know that not much will sell as the original terminal.
Android is not only on mobile phones and tablets, but is now in watches, televisions and cars. But we have to see if it is feasible for Google to release a line of Nexus in each of these markets.
We will start by the of clocks, as it is that we can already prove. With Android Wear have it very difficult, as the current prices of between 200 and 250 euros are very difficult to get and It should be priced between 150 and 180 euros for its effect. In addition to the low diversity of components and the scarce resources of Wear make a product where the Nexus will not appear unless there is a surprise, although neither special was missing.
Complex, but desirable
We move on to TVs with Android TV, which here plays to two bands and there’s more juice. We need what we want in a tablet in Android TV: power. You will not only have movies, but we also have to have capacity for games with great graphics and we will also want to go to 1080 p and 60 fps as you want in next-generation consoles.
On the one hand we have the set-top-box, separate boxes that can be connected to any TV or monitor and enjoy, being the more consistent option by the need to renew gadgets. Here Google may have room for manoeuvre, as it will continue to remain cheap set-top-box with fair skills and others more designed to offer gaming experience with a high price, and if there is much difference a Nexus line can be very necessary for the development of streaming applications as well as games designed for Android.
On the other hand we have the of the televisions, that does not seem the best solution, and Alkar explains it. Saving the theme of difficult renewal, it is up to see if it is possible to cut costs. While many manufacturers make brands, would have to see in what cut Google to give a good price and quality both use and development platform. There is room for manoeuvre, but doesn’t seem too likely Nexus TV as TV, although trying to be grateful.
We just going to the car, where we have a case as in the previous one. Selling a Nexus Car? Too difficult for the consumer, and most only have connectivity with Android. In this case it would be better replaced by something modest and functional Media Center in the same way that was in the Google I/o.
With this in hand, would not be a madness that wagered for one or more possible solutions, but it would still only be speculation. There are rumors of a Nexus set-top-box but have not emerged moves that imply that they will change the Nexus line in the short or medium term.
