After the HTC-made Nexus One and the Samsung Nexus S, it might be Motorola’s turn to give the Google Phone a try. The rumor comes from Advertiser Talk and it fits with Google’s tendency to keep things varied and not go with the same partner every time it creates a product.

This “no favourites” policy also makes us think of LG and Sony Ericsson as potential candidates to developing the next Nexus model. The launch could be closer than we think, as Android 2.4 Ice Cream Sandwich is getting ready for release, without a specific date mentioned. Considering the looks of the Sony Ericsson Arc, we’d love SE to develop the new Nexus model, but a Moto smartphone without Motoblur sure sounds good.
