You may recall that about a month and a half ago, there was a widespread rumor that the Nexus program would come to a halt in favor of Android Silver.

But beyond that, you’re also getting the promise of expedient Android version updates to keep up with newer generations of devices—well unless you’re rocking a Galaxy Nexus.
