Indeed, it’s very tough to find out what actually Google is actually trying to do. The search giant has gone deeply into the numbers of its projects. Undoubtedly, Google Nexus 7 Tablet is one of the successful and most popular 7-inch Tablets on the market today. But after Nexus 7’s success, it’s speculated that Google could archetype its upcoming Nexus smartphone in order to make it more competitive compare to some other available smartphones.

It’s also predicted that Google is working with handful of manufacturers including Samsung, LG, Sony and HTC for the upcoming smartphone (Nexus 7 in smartphone format). It’s said that Google has given possession to these manufacturers to implement design and hardware specification for Nexus 7-based smartphone (rumored). However, none of the manufacturers have started even the design of the device, but the device is expected to be launched shortly.

In addition to this, Google could also announce a new Android version (Android 4.2) next month. According to a new report, Google will co-host an event with LG next month, where LG will show off its Optimus G Nexus. In August of this year, LG unveiled Optimus G smartphone that featured quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 13 MP rear-facing camera, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB onboard storage and more.

However, the upcoming Android 4.2 is supposed to have a nominal update over Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). The new version will have better power management and an improved Google Play Store. Yesterday, Google updated their ‘Gesture Search’ app, which is compatible with Nexus 7. The new app will let users in quickly accessing of contacts, application, music, setting and bookmarks on their Android devices just by drawing letters or numbers.

Google is working with LG for Nexus project because Android partners are reportedly worried with Motorola Mobility’s acquisition that Android maker could give preference to Motorola Mobility. To resolve partners’ apprehension, Google supposedly planned to offer the latest build of Android to five major partners.

Google is still dealing with fragmented marketplace and that’s why, app developers are less willing to work on Android platform. On the other side, its latest Android version (Jelly Bean) has just 1.8% market share till the end of September this year, while Ice Cream Sandwich succeeded to grab 23.7% market share.  But, I’m little-bit skeptical; Does Google really  wants Nexus 7 in Smartphone format?
