Demand Raging For Google Nexus 4 Android Handset

Except for the lack of LTE support there's no question that the LG-made Google Nexus 4 is the best Android phone on the market. It kicks the Samsung Galaxy's proverbial posterior. And at $299 for the unlocked 8GB version it frees you from the tyranny of carrier two-year contracts at a terrific price. It's simply a great phone. Others appear to agree. The Nexus 4 is proving to be so popular Google is having a tough time keeping it in stock. The 16GB version is still available for $349 but the $299 8GB Nexus 4 is sold out again -- apparently.

I own the Galaxy Nexus, from Samsung, the previous "Android flagship." And it's amazing how this phone handily trounces the Samsung "Next Big Thing." The Nexus 4 [...]

The Nexus 10 Hands-On: Solid Tablet, But Not Cheap Enough Against iPad?

nexus10-1 I've been testing Google's new Nexus 10 tablet for the past few days, and there's plenty to love. It's fast, has a great screen and nice sound. There are plenty of the key apps I like.
