LG Nexus 4 vs Samsung Galaxy Nexus vs Samsung Galaxy S III specs comparison

Google just announced what might turn out to be the worst-kept Android secret – this year’s green robot flagship, the LG Nexus 4. It is certainly a device to be reckoned, with the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, and large the in-cell touch display.

LG Nexus 4 hands-on video released prematurely by Three Sweden

The LG Nexus 4 has to be one of the most-leaked phones in recent memory – the latest premature release comes from the official YouTube channel of Sweden’s carrier Three, who posted a quick hands-on with the upcoming Nexus (which was supposed to be announced today, maybe 3 Sweden didn’t get the memo about the cancellation).

The quick UI demo doesn’t really show much, but there are new notification area toggles which look quite interesting. They are not placed above the notifications as usual, but are instead a separate screen you can access by tapping a button.

The top left icon is for the user, which might mean we’re finally getting multi-user support (the makings of which are already in Android) but it could just be a link to your social networking account (like WP7′s Me tile).

Much more for much less: Amazon directly attacks the iPad mini on its home page

Ads that directly attack a competitor’s product saying it is inferior to the company’s own may be restricted in Europe, but the US doesn’t suffer from such delicacies. You constantly see Coke vs Pepsi ads in direct comparison, outlandish claims for the best beer in the world, and this extends even to drugs commercials.

Android tablets gaining market share at the expense of the Apple iPad says report

According to Strategy Analytics, Android tablets are beginning to do something that for months seemed impossible…pick up market share at the expense of the Apple iPad. At the end of the third quarter, Android tablets had accounted for 41.3% of all tablets shipped globally. That was up dramatically from the 29.2% slice of the tablet pie the platform held the prior year. In the meantime, the Apple iPad saw its global share decline from a whopping 64.5% in Q3 of 2011 to a more mortal 56.7 this year. And as if to accentuate the gains made by the green robot, Windows share dropped over the same time span from 2.3% to 1.6% while the others category slumped from 4.1% to a barely breathing .4%
