A slip-up at Best Buy could indicate that Google, despite all statements to the contrary, has plans for another Nexus-branded phone.
Phandroid noticed a briefly available link on Best Buy's mobile site this morning offering a teaser for the Nexus S, said to be "pure Google" and available on T-Mobile's network. The image and link didn't last very long, but the magic of Google's own caching technology preserved the error long enough for screenshots to be grabbed left and right
So what exactly is Google planning here? Unsurprisingly, they aren't saying, declining to comment "on the Nexus rumors and speculation." But it's getting a little difficult to understand exactly what Google would like to do with the Nexus concept.
