Nexus 4 $50 deal prompts T-Mobile stock shortage

Mobile carrier T-Mobile USA has placed the Google Nexus 4 smartphone on sale this week for a surprising nearly-$250 discount, going "out of stock" once again rather rapidly after having done so. This announcement comes quickly after it was figured out by some intrepid fans that LG had ramped up production so well that 1,000,000 units were now on the market - a giant undertaking and speed-up compared to what was out only a few months ago!

Google Nexus 7 and 4 tipped for spring refresh in White and HD

This week the Google Nexus lineup has been tipped to see a slight overhaul for its second coming, with hardware upgrades coming to the Nexus 7 tablet and the Nexus 4 smartphone in large and small doses.

Here in first quarter of 2013 heading into Spring (or maybe that's just wishful thinking), we've got rumors galore of a Nexus 5 being worked on for release at Mobile World Congress 2013 from LG, none other than the manufacturers of the Nexus 4.

Acer Iconia B1 tablet leaks to under-cut the fabled $99 Nexus

It's time for the $99 USD tablet war to commence, ladies and gentlemen, and you know good and well that a fast-paced company line Acer isn't going to be left out in the cold: behold, the Iconia B1. This machine has been leaked this week with the full name Acer Iconia B1, a 7-inch tablet that looks in its rendering images to be extremely similar in styling to the original Barnes & Noble NOOK. This machine is, on the other hand, being shown in full-color renderings as well with a little home-button-style corner that replaces the area that the NOOK "loop" sits, this perhaps showing the true nature of the final product.
