Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

The difference between the Google Play Nexus 4 and the T-Mobile Nexus 4 is neither in the hardware nor in the software, but in the cost and agreement you'll be making with T-Mobile - but that doesn't mean we can't give some more time to Google's own smartphone hero for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean - for science!

The larger of the two big-hitters in the Acer Aspire S7 series Ultrabooks sits here on our desk like a high-powered glass-covered knife, ready to bring the best we've seen in touchscreen-toting Windows 8-optimized notebook action to the market. This machine has been delivered to our doorstep in its most powerful configuration, all $1,649 USD of it - complete with a 3rd Generation (Ivy Bridge) Intel Core i7-3517U Processor clocked in at 1.9GHz. The 13.3-inch display here is a beastly Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution widescreen CineCrystal LED-backlit bit of technology with 10 finger touch and a 16:9 aspect ratio.

At the Society for Information Display's Display Week in Boston, Corning has revealed that they've begun working on their next-generation flexible Willow Glass.
