Oh, Google Nexus, you're such a tease! Earlier today, the official Twitter account for the Google Android phone sent out a message saying that a surprise was on its way and to "Stay tuned!" We're still waiting for the news to drop, but you know that's not going to stop us or you from guessing.

Thus far, the Nexus name has only been associated with smartphones, so it's possible we could see another handset by the end of the day. However, as IntoMobile notes, it would make more sense to introduce such a device at Google I/O, which starts on May 10, and there's also the fact that the Nexus S really hasn't been out that long.

So what else could it be? Well, we know it's not going to be a software update. The company actually tweeted just minutes ago that Android 2.3.4 will roll out over the air in the next few weeks, bringing bug fixes to the Nexus One and video chat (!!) to the Nexus S, but that the surprise was still to come.

Is it possible then that we'll see the Nexus name extended to, oh I don't know, a tablet? Or do you think it will still be phone related? Chime in with your thoughts!
