Nexus One

All the world  is talking about Nexus One these days (ok ok, I know I am a little bit exaggerating); about its photos, specs, Google's motivation behind it -let me remind you 700 MHz spectrum auction- etc but for me the funniest thing about it is its name.

As SF fans already recognized, the name "Nexus" is used in  Philip K. Dick's wonderful novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and the related movie "Blade Runner" for the model of replicants produced by Tyrell Corp (which somehow reminds me of Google). The models range from Nexus-1 to Nexus-6, so I wonder what will be the Google's Nexus Two?
