It’s no longer a mystery in many ways smaller, more portable tablets are doing better than “full-sized” 10-inchers, at least as far as the Android landscape is concerned, but what is the perfect size after all? Is it seven inches a la Google’s Nexus 7?
Following a genuine rumor overload that was cut short almost a little too late, Google Nexus 5 cravers are unsurprisingly faced with an availability news overload less than 24 hours after the phone’s glamour-free formal intro.
How much hype is too much? We’re probably about to find out, as we’re in the midst of a genuine rumor overload starring possibly the worst kept secret in Android history, Google and LG’s Nexus 5.
Hang on to your hats and get that popcorn popping, ladies and gents, because the Nexus 5 rumor parade is refusing to draw to a close. And the funny thing is we can’t look away. We just cannot.
Following Google’s unforeseen announcement of Android 4.4 KitKat, the Nexus 5 floodgates opened once again, far more furiously and apparently with stronger evidence supporting the rumors than ever before.
Like any good soap opera, the story of the Nexus 5 is advancing sluggishly and encounters spectacular twists and turns with each new episode. Rumored to be manufactured by Motorola about ten days back, the N5 appeared to leak yesterday complete with familiar LG branding.
It seems hard to believe that a journalist with Taylor Wimberly’s contacts and reputation may get a story as big as that of the Motorola-made N5 wrong, but there’s increasing buzz of LG being Google’s partner for the next Nexus family member after all.
You know how there’s a rumor going around that Google’s next Nexus 7 might be co-branded by LG? That sounded pretty ridiculous at first, with LG being absent from the tablet world since 2011, but now it’s a little less preposterous.
