    We've recently seen pictures of the LG E960 in the wild; the phone is believed to be the next Google Nexus device and now we're seeing even more images of the phone thanks to someone who claims to have a prototype and is willing to answer all questions. The phone appears to be identical to the one we saw yesterday (sans the protective, design-concealing outer case) with the pattern on its back and no physical buttons. Reported specs seem to confirm earlier rumors: quad-core processor clocking at 1.5GHz aided by the Adreno 320 GPU, eight-megapixel camera, 1184x768 resolution, 2GB of RAM, ...

Maybe it is just us or maybe the two phones which you'll see below are really not the same devices, but different sources claim different phones with the same codename to be the next Nexus. First off we have these pictures right below which are originating from an AndroidCentral tipster. You can see an LG Optimus G-esque out aspect with Android 4.1.2 running under the hood. If you compare it to the LG Optimus G you'll see a different ...

    A few days ago Michael wrote an article about how how Samsung is ruining the Galaxy brand. There's no question that Samsung has some very high-end, well-built phones that carry the "Galaxy" moniker. There are also some "Galaxy" devices that don't serve to build up the Galaxy brand, instead they're trying to ride the wave of popularity that the "good" Galaxy devices have built up over time. The Galaxy Camera, really Samsung? This got me thinking about the other forefront Android brand, Google's own Nexus. What is a "Nexus"? Just what is a "Nexus"? According to Dictionary.com, "Nexus" is a ...

    What is the AOSP? According to Google, the Android Open Source Project refers to the people, the processes, and the source code that make up Android. "The people oversee the project and develop the actual source code. The processes refer to the tools and procedures we use to manage the development of the software. The net result is the source code that you can use to build cell phone and other devices." Part of the AOSP is essentially a repository for ROMs, the software that we run on our phones and tablets. Not only is the generic, "core" operating system tucked away inside the AOSP, ...

    Where there's smoker there must be fire, so they say and there's a lot of smoke here. The Google Nexus tablet has been long rumored on the inter webs and more recently we've seen an alleged training document detailing both the looks and the specs of the upcoming pure-Android slate. Now Bloomberg has it on good authority that Google will indeed announce its Nexus tablet at this year's I/O, kicking off today.  Furthermore, this time it's not aiming at the Kindle Fire and Co. but "taking direct aim at Apple’s iPad, according to two people familiar with the matter". The report mentions ...

Manufactured by Quanta, the Nexus tablet will reportedly wear a price tag of $199, according to "sources from upstream component makers".

    By now, you've heard the news: Google has purchased mobile hardware manufacturer Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion. The move is significant in a number of ways, but the real headline-grabber is that it marks software giant Google's first real step into mobile hardware. It's widely accepted that a big reason Google was interested in purchasing Motorola was the latter's treasure trove of patents- between 17,000 and 24,500 of them, depending on who you believe. In the increasingly litigious world of the mobile technology business, a well-stocked defensive patent portfolio can mean the ...

    Evan Blass recently posted an article titled "Will The iPhone's Reign Ever End?" In it, he speculates on the future of the mobile landscape, trying to predict how, when, or if the iPhone will go the way of the RAZRs and N95s of the world. What will ultimately dethrone the reigning king of smartphones? It's a good question. Right across the mobile-device gap, in the tablet space, sits Apple's iPad. Just as the smartphone world offers up some close competition between the Android and iOS platforms, the battle also rages on in the tablet market. It's easy to forget how close that race is ...
