I hope the rumor is true, Google ran the Nexus into the ground, with their usual stupidity, if they truly scrap the nexus line, Google can then start releasing good tablets, instead of the choked down nexus line, hopefully Google fires the CEO, of that department and hires a real CEO, that understands technology. As rich as Google is, there is no excuse for such tablets as the nexus line, Hopefully Google really has got a clue and scraps this line, I can't wait to see them releasing a tablet worth buying. I will be in the market next year, Google drops the Nexus and releases a good tablet, I would also be a Google customer.

Getting my hopes up, most likely wont help, Google will probably continue with the nexus line, to see how low they can go, til people just stops buying it.
