Google is set to significantly shake up its Nexus device program. According to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal, Google plans to give multiple handset makers access to new versions of Android and sell those handsets directly to consumers. Historically, Google has partnered with one hardware manufacturer at a time to create its Nexus devices. Offering the Nexus — or pure Android — experience to more than one OEM at a time represents a big change. Google recently resurrected direct-to-consumer sales of Nexus devices through the Google Play store. The Journal's sources didn't say which manufacturers might be first up in the new scheme, but said the devices would be ready by Thanksgiving.

I wanted a Nexus device, but didn't want a Samsung. But since I'm on Verizon, that was the only choice. I hope one of the OEMs is HTC or Motorola!

It's a good idea. Introduce new phones with Jellybean. Let Apple go first though.
