The Google Phone identifies as an early replicant

The Gruber brings us this bit of news: the new GPhone identifies as Nexus One in browsing logs. Five points to anyone who can remember what the Nexus models were?

In Blade Runner the Nexus Six models were the “rogue” replicants and someone – not saying who – was a Nexus Seven model.

So is Google saying they’re the Tyrell Corporation, working on the first off-world employees for their future colonies? Or is someone just playing a funny.
