Nexus 4 shows up in white at TalkTalk

The Nexus 4 first made its appearance clothed in white over at Carphone Warehouse, where it then promptly disappeared. Now it has made its appearance once again, this time at TalkTalk, a UK-based telecommunications company. The device is currently only available for pre-order, but is expected to have stock in on December 13th, which means shipping will probably be early enough to get it in time for Christmas.

Nexus 4 gets teardown for repairability and science

Nexus 4 gets teardown for repairability and science

If you're not all about science, its time you turned right around - because the Nexus 4 being torn down by iFixit to see what LG has brought to the party is all about how much science they can pack in its innards. It begins with a note that the LG Nexus 4 (see our full review here) isn't exactly made to be taken apart - not by the average citizen - but that if you do want to fix it up, you'll probably be able to without too much trouble. It all begins with a couple T5 Torx screws and a prying of the back from the front.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 15, 2012

Welcome to Thursday evening folks. Today Microsoft's former Windows head Steven Sinofsky discussed his recent and surprising departure from the company, but didn't go into too many specifics when it came down to why he actually left. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 started shipping ahead of schedule today, while new reports are suggesting that Apple may delay the new iMac into 2013. NASA was the victim of a major security breach recently, and today it said that it will make sure all of its laptops are equipped with full disk encryption by the end of the year as a result.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: November 13, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone. We had a pretty big day, what with the reveal of the HTC DROID DNA and all. HTC announced that the DROID DNA will be arriving at Verizon on November 21, and we even managed to go hands-on with the device and its wireless charging dock. Of course, today was also the day that the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 became available on the Google Play Store. All but the 16GB Nexus 10 sold through pretty quickly, so we hope you got your hands on the device you wanted before Google put up the out of stock notices.

It should’ve been the HTC Nexus DNA

It should’ve been the HTC Nexus DNA

Beautiful screen, crisp hardware, superlative specifications: if ever a smartphone deserved Google's Nexus branding, the DROID DNA by HTC is probably it. Announced on the same day that LG's Nexus 4 went on sale, the HTC DNA is so impressive a phone that its looming, 5-inch presence even managed to overshadow Google's dire performance with Play store stability as eager Nexus buyers tried to secure a new phone. It's a sign that HTC is taking the smartphone segment as seriously as it really needs to, not only iterating on what's out there today but leading with new, compelling features in an appealing package. So appealing, in fact, that it's hard to escape the feeling that the DNA, not LG's handset, should've been the new Nexus.

Nexus 4 sells out in UK in 30 minutes as Play woes prompt anger

Nexus 4 sells out in UK in 30 minutes as Play woes prompt anger

Google's new Nexus 4 went up for sale in Europe and Australia this morning, promptly selling out in minutes and leaving potential customers furious at the stability of the Play store. The new smartphone - which hit Google's virtual shelves alongside the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets, supplies of some of which are patchy - lured buyers in with its competitively low unsubsidized price, to the point where the Play store apparently couldn't handle the influx of users and threw up numerous errors.

Android 4.2 OTA brings lock screen widgets and multi-user support

Android 4.2 OTA brings lock screen widgets and multi-user support

Those of you working with one of the three Nexus devices currently offered up by Google, those being the Nexus 4 and 10, will be glad to know that an Android 4.2 OTA update has begun rolling out. This update includes two major updates into what we already knew was supposed to be possible with this Jelly Bean+ build, that being Lock screen widgets and Multi-user support. It would appear that this update will be the one that the devices will be shipping with - or at least what they'll be updated to rather quickly after their release.

Nexus is the tonic to Apple and Microsoft greed says Google exec

Nexus is the tonic to Apple and Microsoft greed says Google exec

Google's Nexus program is a push back against Apple and Microsoft greed, an Android exec has argued, describing Motorola Mobility as a way to "disarm" attacks on the OS rather than segue into hardware. "There are players in the industry who were unhappy about more competitive pricing for the consumers" John Lagerling, director of Android business development, told Bits, pointing to the relatively affordable Nexus 4 as an example of how Google is shaking up the smartphone and tablet space, and relying on Motorola for patent ammunition should the search giant get called out in court.
