The next Google Nexus Phone could be made by LG, Samsung or others

Google Galaxy NexusI’ve seen a lot of rumours lately about Google next Nexus smartphone. Some say it will be built by Samsung, others say by LG and others say that anyone can build a Nexus smartphone as long as they stick with Google strict standards.

The most recent rumour that came up right before the weekend was about LG. As we are speaking some of you know that LG is already planning to release a “superphone” called Optimus G. LG already released a bunch of information about Optimus G, probably wanting us to die after their phone. Optimus G will feature a 1.5GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Processor, 4G LTE, WXGA True HD IPS+ display, 2GB of RAM and an 8 or 13 megapixel camera. Awesome, but unfortunately it should weight 145grams, so it’s quite heavy.

Google Nexus 7: Cheap, Competitive and Beautiful

Google Asus Nexus 7 TabletNexus 7 tablet is a winner in many ways. It comes loaded with the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is the first tablet to have it. It is fast, fun, and full of punch. When compared to other tablets greater than $300 they all fall along the wayside. Not only can you surf the Web with ease, but you can play games without problems and it is compact.

The feel is solid and sleek for a $200 machine. There are just too many cheap tablets to overlook this beauty. The hardware is built by Asus, so it is no wonder that it is solid. The front is encased with Gorilla Glass and the back is layered with a slight grip, formatted in a stippled rubber. The whole tablet is 7.8×4.7×0.4 inches, weighing in at 12oz. You can easily hold it in a single hand for a long time without troubles.

The 7-inch IPS LCD screen supports 1280 x 800 resolution. While the resolution is greater than the Kindle Fire, there is a fat bezel encompassing the screen meant to give you a place to rest your thumbs without obscuring any part of the screen(while playing games).
