Galaxy Nexus, the third in the series

The Nexus is a series of Android smartphones and tablets produced by Google in co-operation with some phone-making companies. The purpose of the Nexus phones and tablets is to offer a "pure Android experience", in which the phones or tablets come free of carrier or manufacturer modifications and with an unlockable bootloader[1] to allow for further development and end-user modification.[2] Nexus phones and tablets are considered the "flagship" Android devices.[3][4][5][6][7]

Phones in the series:

Tablets in the series:

  • Nexus 7
  • Nexus 10

The series also had a media streaming device known as the Nexus Q, however it was never officially released because it didn't have enough features to make it worth using.
