    The image on the left is the new Google Phone, to be name Nexus One which shares its name with the robots in “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” written by Philip K. Dick , the author of Blade Runner (movie poster on the right) as well.

    Google Phone – nicknamed as Nexus One.
    Nexus One – Name inspired from Philip K Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?
    Blade Runner – Movie inspired by the novel.

    Apparently,this didn’t go down too well with the author’s daughter Isa Dick(?)Hackett


  4. Big G’s phone christened Nexus One is apparently a reference to the Nexus-6 bots from “Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep”/”Bladerunner”.

    Google’s phone (L) supposedly called Nexus One in a tribute to Do androids dream of electric sleep on which bladerunner (R) is based.

    The Nexus One and Blade Runner.

    PKD’s daughter is upset that Google references the Nexus-6 from Blade Runner without prior permission from the estate, and might sue.

    That’s the Google Phone, Nexus one.

    Isa D.H, daughter of PKD saw a connection between “Do androids dream of electric sheep” and Nexus – 6 robots, from Blade runner. She didn’t like it.
    Harrison ford was Rick Deckard in the movie.

    Someone from rediff said, ” In other news, Isaac Newton is suing Apple Computers.”

    Damn, Muphry’s Law.
    I meant Reddit.


  10. New Google phone called Nexus One – in honour of the replicants from PKD\\\\\\\’s Do Androids dream of electric sheep?

    Bladerunner based on the same novel.


  11. Google’s new phone expected to be called as Nexus one, hence the trouble with the Blade runner(well to be precise, trouble with Philip Dick’s family)


  12. The picture on the left is that of the Google phone – Nexus One, which runs on the Android Platform. The image is that from Blade Runner, which is based on the novel \’Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep\’. So, looks like the connection is Android.

    1) the nexus-one more commonly known as the google phone.

    2) Blade runner

    The name is believed to be a reference to the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, which later became the film Blade Runner . The book and film are centered on a group of rogue replicate androids that are identified through the model designation Nexus-6. It is not known if Google’s mobile platform was called Android because of the book or if they just used the name Nexus because of the android connection.

    1.Google Nexus One
    2.Blade Runner

    Connect-> the name Nexus One is a reference to the Nexus-6 androids from the movie.

    The movie is an adaptation of Philip K Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” and his daughter Isa Hackett is PISSED OFF cuz Google didnt approach her for permissions.

    The estate of P K Dick has an issue with Google calling their new phone *Nexus One* as it is a little too similar to *Nexux 8* robots of *Do Robots Dream of Electric Sheep*/*Bladerunner*.
