Last year at Mobile World Congress we were treated to our first up-close look at the LG Optimus G Pro, a device that took everything that was good about the LG Optimus G and beefed it up to a far larger handset.

There's a new tablet appearing soon from Google called the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition, the first tablet to enter this arena of "Nexus" devices.

Project Svelte: Android 4.4 KitKat works on entry-level thanks to modded Nexus 4

In the creation of the newest version of Google's mobile operating system Android 4.4 KitKat, the developers responsible for testing it did so on modified Nexus 4 devices. One key element in the creation of the full feature set of Android 4.4 KitKat was "Project Svelte", a name for a goal that was to bring the software to any device running a mere 512MB of RAM.
