The Google Nexus One is only a week old and already people are talking about its successor. We mentioned in a recent post that the Google Nexus Two would be designed for the enterprise user, but as the current Google-branded phone has to compete with the iPhone 3GS, the Nexus Two would have to compete with the new 2010 iPhone 4G.
According to an article on the Telegraph website, the new phone could come with a QWERTY keyboard as well as a touchscreen. We feel that this will be going backwards for the handset, but maybe Google just wants to keep its new customers happy.
It is no secret that the Nexus One is in competition with the iPhone 3GS, but would the Nexus Two have a fairer fight with the next-gen iPhone? We have to wonder if any phone could ever compete with Apple’s smartphone, the phone has older hardware than the new range of Android phones and they still do not come close.
Maybe Google has already decided that a battle with the iPhone is a lost cause, so thought that competing with RIM’s BlackBerry devices would be easier. This certainly makes sense if they are thinking of the enterprise user for its next handset.
There are a number of things that Google would need to address before they even thought about an enterprise Nexus Two, the most important being enhanced security options. Do you think that Google will be able to make it in the Enterprise market?
