So I was reading the exellent Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (Bladerunner) and it finally dawned on me where the Nexus devices get their name from! In the Book the Androids (also called Andys....hint hint hint) are the Nexus-6's the most advanced Androids on the planet.... I mean come on how much more obvious can it be!?!?!?
Codos to Google for having good taste in literature!
