Q- Was "NEX" name pulled by Sony in fear of lawsuit(s) ?
6 months ago

There have been a couple of lawsuits of late, surrounding patent infringement of a couple of other manufacturers' products who use the name, "Nexus." Was removing the NEX name a decision based on fear of getting caught up in some of this, and therefore a smart move by Sony?
