There have been rumors that Google would nix its Nexus program, replacing it with Android Silver - a premium Android lineup of devices. But, according to the Head of Android Engineering, Dave Burke, the Nexus program isn't going anywhere.
Burke said: "People have been commenting about Nexus because there is something else and they think that means the end of Nexus. That is the totally wrong conclusion to make". When it comes to the talk about Android Silver, Burke's leaps are sealed: "Android Silver is not something that we are commenting on right now. But the prospect of Silver doesn't mean that Nexus is going away".
