If you still had any doubts that the new Nexus smartphone is coming from LG, the leaks this week should put them to rest. We even got to see the device, courtesy of the FCC.
There was a general apathy around the launch of the new iPhones in the world of Android. Find out why.
It comes as no surprise, but Android manufacturers are boarding the 64-bit train in 2014.

Eagerly waiting for Nexus 5 and Kit Kat
Just go in a local store and buy yourself a Kit Kat. Now you have 1 less thing to wait for, you’re welcome ;D
I’m not worried about 64-bit right now, there really isn’t any apps to take advantage of the technology in a Smartphone or tablet. But I am looking forward to seeing the new Nexus 5 looks like and to see if Android 4.4 KitKat can fix my struggling Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It just can’t seem to handle some apps especially when the wifi is turned on. I even tried less syncing since I upgraded to Android 4.3. I might have to TRY downgrading to Android 4.1.2 or 4.2.2.
HTC one max is the hottest news..
A strong contender to the recently released note 3 & iPhone
KitKat will come with 64 bit support on laptops with Intel Haswell and Bay Trail processors: http://images.dailytech.com/nimage/Wintel_Android_Enhancements.png
Android on the desktop, yay.
Where is this image from.
http://www.dailytech.com/IDF+2013+Intel+Distances+Itself+From+Windows+8+Microsoft/article33363.htm Well, 64-bit support for Android is pretty much confirmed then.
An Intel slide at their developer summit. They also showed images of Android laptops Transformer style. But supposedly with Intel chips rather than Tegra.
Now that iOS has been put in its place, it’s time to kick Windows out of the desktop.
I guess this is to shut those Apple guys up?
Gnote3 looks like its got things wrapped up in this class but going to wait see nexus5 like seen as last couple phones I’ve had have been gnex nex4 got to love the updates !
I switch to android. Never been so happy…I can’t wait till Oct.14 nexus 5
Haswell Chromebooks would be key! I don’t want to be an early adopter for the Chromebook as I want them to get to be Windows/Mac level of hardware and available software, but it seems like it’ll be a bright future for the Chromebook.
