Rubin revealed at the Google I/O conference, "The Nexus has been the thing that we used to set the bar, and there's always going to be new ones coming out in the market. We'll make an announcement at some point in the future."
Previously Google launched the Nexus One in collaboration with HTC, which became the first Android 2.1 �clair device. Later they launched the Samsung branded Nexus S, which became the first Android 2.3 Gingerbread device.
The Nexus series of devices have been unique in providing a pure Google experience. They have also provided manufactures with a hardware template for future Android devices. They have been the first ones to receive updates whenever Google has upgraded Android.
In all probability the new Nexus device will come loaded with the new Android Ice-cream Sandwich. Though Rubin made no date announcement, we believe it will arrive in Q4 of 2011 or Q1 of 2012.
