Google's 2012 Nexus handset, the Nexus 4 marks the company's first Nexus partnership with LG. The phone is essentially the LG Optimus G, though with its LTE radio disabled by default. The launch of the Nexus 4 was notable for the exceptionally low price at which Google was able to offer the phone, with the 8GB model selling for just $300 without contract obligation. The Nexus 4 runs a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, has 2GB of RAM, and features a 4.7-inch 720p display.

    Motorola's been a tricky smartphone manufacturer to get a read on lately. In some ways, like with the Moto X, it feels like Google's influence is really trying to steer the company's products in a certain new direction, but there are also these projects like the Droid Ultra and Maxx that feel more like Motorola following in its old footsteps. The latest rumor to arrive about where Motorola's heading next looks to the European market, and claims that the company could be looking to release a very affordable higher-end phone. Details are a little light, but ADSLZONE claims to have heard from ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the carrier leaks regarding a possible launch date for the Moto X. HP is up next, believe it or not, and this time because they've dropped the price on their Slate 7. Google's Nexus 4 takes the spotlight afterwards, as the white variant is no longer being sold in the Google Play Store. Nokia's Lumia 1020 is next as we're still not sure if the device will be called 902 or 1020, but we'll know soon with their July 11th event. We end today's show talking about HTC and their sad Q2 results. All this and more after the break. Stories: - Carrier ...

    Just over a month ago, LG confirmed the long-standing (since last year) rumors of a white Nexus 4, announcing the phone's launch. A couple days after that, we saw the phone go up for sale in the US through the Google Play Store. From the start, Google was clear that this was a limited edition version of the smartphone, but apparently that was far more true than we realized: now, after just about a month of sales, the white Nexus 4 is gone. Well, that's not entirely accurate; T-Mobile still has the phone if you feel like paying too much, and we can't say what the situation is like all ...

    In the food service industry, when you're a server who's been slammed with too many customers and can't keep up with the demand, you're said to be "in the weeds." On a podcast, that same expression means something quite different. It means you've wandered so far from your intended topic (in this case, mobile technology) that you've found yourself in the far-flung wilderness talking about anything but (in this case, sports cars, British accents, and the adult film industry). But while we do spend a fair amount of time in OT land on today's Pocketnow Weekly, we still manage to get some tech ...

    The Nexus 4 is the go-to device for many developers. Offering the purest Google experience and literally built for developers, it's the most vanilla Android experience possible. It's lightweight and comes with no bloatware. There's practically nothing to over-encumber  the device straight out of the box. That said, the handset is beginning to age as faster, more efficient chipsets arrive. It just doesn't feel as fast as it once did. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to spruce up your ol' Nexus by way of various custom mods. Try a new ROM, or theme it to no end. Or, take a custom ...

    After months and months of sitting on the benches, the white Nexus 4 was finally called into the game last month, and we wrapped-up last week learning of the start of its sales in the Google Play Store. It all seemed to be going swimmingly, with Google even throwing in a free bumper case with orders. However, as that first wave of white Nexus 4 handsets starts shipping out to customers, we're getting word that all might not be well, after all, and for some reason Google has been recalling packages. For the moment, we can't say how widespread incidents like this may be, but the fact that ...

    After months and months of waiting, we finally heard LG announce the white edition of the Nexus 4 earlier this week. We learned that sales would begin in Asia, and we'd slowly see its availability grow over the next few weeks. For Android fans in the States, at least, we've been wondering when that might mean we'd see the white Nexus 4 join its black sibling in the Google Play Store. As it turns out, that day is today, and Google's sweetening the deal with a free accessory. The 16GB and 8GB white Nexus 4s are now available for purchase through Google's online storefront, currently shipping ...

We end today's show talking about the rumors that Google's future Nexus smartphone may not be made by LG. All this ...

    Well, we can put those June 10 rumors to rest as LG announces white Google Nexus 4. The company just issued a press release unveiling the pale version of the latest Google Nexus phone, which was no stranger in the past months. "Nexus 4 set the standard for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean smartphones. Nexus 4 White delivers the same Google experience to consumers in a stylish and attractive color option”, LG Mobile's CEO and president, Dr. Jong-seok Park. Expect the exact same specifications as found on the black Nexus 4, meaning the 4.7-inch 1280-by-768 True HD IPS Plus display, Qualcomm ...

    This story has been updated. Here's an interesting piece of information: Next Nexus not made by LG. The report quotes LG Mobile Europe's vice president, Kim Won. According to the official, the Nexus 5 is not necessary for LG's profit and success. Of course, there might always be a language barrier here, and we're waiting for possible future clarifications. "The Nexus 4 was a great success despite the production problems for us and Google. However we do not need such a marketing success again", said the LG VP. Kim Won also opined on a future possible LG "Google Edition" phone, a la Samsung ...

    A white Nexus 4 is something the market has been waiting for since day-one. The pale phone is back in the rumors recently and, whether it will disappoint or not, it is expected to land soon with a point-update of Android. According to a recent report the white Nexus 4 you see above and below is allegedly the official press render of the device. There's really nothing special about it except for the fact that it is, well, white. Apparently the phone's model number is E960W and according to the report, specs will be the same as in the case of the black variant (including 8-, and 16GB ...

    Despite Google not announcing it at I/O 2013, it's been clear that Android 4.3 has been under development, leaving many of us wondering just when Google might hope to finally make it official. While most of the 4.3 evidence has come from the likes of server logs, today we get a first-hand look at the software in action, with a number of images appearing to show Android 4.3 running on a Nexus 4. Supposedly snapped at a Thai mobile expo, these shots show Android 4.3 build JWR45B in action, prepared just a little earlier this month. We don't get anything close to an exhaustive look at the ...

    A lily white version of Google's Nexus 4 has been teasing its existence for months now. We've had the chance to look at it from seemingly every angle under the sun, and it's pretty darn attractive. Of course, the big problem is that, now half a year since the Nexus 4's retail launch, this white version has yet to go official. As such, the white Nexus 4 has been tied to any number of rumors of refreshed Nexus 4 hardware, the idea being that Google would use the phone as an instrument by which to introduce some other new Nexus 4 feature, like proper LTE support (as opposed to any radio ...
