Motorola designing 'Nexus Two'

Motorola has confirmed that it is working with Google on a new Google-branded smartphone, which will effectively be the Nexus Two.

Co-CEO Sanjay Jha last week laid out the company's ambition to launch 20 smartphones in 2010, including “one direct-to-consumer device with Google,” The Street said
 
But he did not comment on rumors that the device currently codenamed Shadow is to be the Nexus Two.
 
Google hinted at a partnership with Motorola while outlining its plans for the Nexus range last month.
 
HTC designed the Nexus One, which launched last month. Google is selling the device both directly through a web-based sales channel, and through carrier partnerships. The Nexus Two will likely be sold the same way.
 
Sales of Motorola's Android-powered Droid were a rare bright spot in an overall somber Q4 for the mobile devices unit, which reported a 22% year-on-year fall in operating profit.
 
The Motorola group meanwhile recorded a net profit of $142 million (€102.3 million) on sales of $5.7 billion. Analysts had been predicting revenue of $5.9 billion.
