Google Nexus 4

Google recently released details relating to its latest Nexus smartphone. The Nexus 4, which is manufactured by LG, boasts a host of impressive specifications that will leave most Android users chomping at the bit.

While the phone hardware is top drawer, the same cannot be said of the price which is basement bargain. The phone is currently on sale in the U.S. for just $299 USD, unlocked and with no commitment required to a mobile carrier. This will allow folks to purchase a top end phone at a knock down price without the pain of a 12-18 month contract! Happy days I hear you scream!

So where is the downside? The only major downside that has been noted to date is the phones lack of support for LTE networks, and this may not bother most people due to its impressive download rates via HSPA+. That said, according to theverge  the phone can be forced to use an LTE network, for users in Canada, through some light tweaking.

Regardless, this is an impressive new offering in the Google range and one that we here in Android Mobiles cannot wait to get our grubby little fingers on!

Google Takes Over Motorola

Google is to acquire Motorola Mobile Inc! This is the latest news coming to the fore. Although Google have always had a huge input in the development on the Nexus, this acquisition means Google will soon be fully in charge of the Nexus phone. Through the acquisition, a new partnership will be birthed between Google and the Motorola corporation. This will go a long way in expanding the reach of the android OS while also giving Google the mobile phone patents its been so desperately chasing.
There had been several concerns on whether the acquisition and the take over the Nexus manufacturing will bring about any change in the Nexus program. But Andy Rubin who is android chief has assured the general public that the acquisition will not bring about any kind of changes whatsoever in the system; things will still be as they were in times past.
The only thing that is expected to happen in the form of change is that some of the components of the Nexus may be improved far beyond what they are able to offer now. The change is however not expected to take place immediately. According to Andy Rubin any change that may occur may not come to pass until around Christmas time.

The engineers whose duty it is to make the changes are expected to work together with Google throughout the period of the change in order to ensure strict adherence to quality and proper Google procedures. Before such an upgrade can take place, the engineers may have to work on it for several months. But it is expected that something far more useful will be the outcome.
