@sirweezle I would Love for Nokia to make an Android phone too but something tells me they are in bed with Microsoft. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft help keep Nokia a float. Who's to say they don't have some kind of a deal where Nokia must use Windows mobile for a while. It just doesn't make sense as to why the CEO would say no to Android.... it's not like it's a new o/s. It's been proven and people, like myself, enjoy it.

This isn't a good thing. Samsung shouldn't have even released a 16gb model. I have a 32gb S3 and even with a 64gb micro sd card I run  into issues because you can't install apps onto the micro sd card unless your rooted which I don't plan on doing. I guess if you're rooting your phone or plan on not installing many apps you'll be ok.

I will say this is a really great tablet for the price. I picked my up from Sam's Club on sale for $399 which I think was a good price due the features that it offers when compaired to the other Android tablets that are offered. There is NO WAY I would invest in an Ipad when this costs less in most cases but you get more, example, more memory and a micro sd card slot. I definitely recommend this tablet and would suggest to invest in a nice case for it like a Gumdrop case which is similar to an otterbox defender for a tablet, only cost a little less. I would say the only issue with the case is that it doesn't work if you get the detachable keyboard add on which for me wasn't a big deal.

This news is exciting. While I haven't owned a Motorola phone since my very first phone with Tmobile back in 2004, this is something I would consider to buy if it's as revolutionary as they are claiming. Personally I feel the original Nexus One was a game changer because no phone came close to its specs and features. If Google can pull this off with the X and give us that same feeling then I will be all over it.

Ever since the update to Jelly Bean on Tmobile I get the message of how I have insufficient memory when trying to update or install apps once my memory hits around 400mb on my 32gb model. I don't get it because I have plenty of memory left. It's bad when I need to update an app that is only a few mbs but it says I have insufficient memory. The only thing that helps now is to install then reinstall or use an app that cleans the cache, etc.

While I am a proud owner of a Galaxy S3, I agree, the Note 2 should have been on the list. As fast as phones come out it's hard to pick the best of since there may be too many to choose from. I personally would have made the S3 number 2 because it did so well in sales and the Note 2 number 3. While I am not a huge fan of LG and the newest Nexus phone, I agree it being number 1 since it has done so well. If it wasn't pure Vanilla though it probably wouldn't have done as good as it has, nor have even made it as one of the top Android phones of 2012.

I think it's a cool concept. While it's true there are newer chipsets just around the corner, that shouldn't stop people from developing for the OUYA. After all there are still a lot of Android users in general who play games on their phones and tablets that don't even have a Tegra 3 processor in them, yet the development is still strong. I think this will be a hot selling system with a decent price tag. Myself, I use my Samsung Galaxy S3 for games and with the MOGA controller it's like a portable console. I also discovered a way to use it as a home console with the MOGA controller so I can play all the emulators as if they were the actual systems but it saves on space.

@Haloruler64 @AndyH_STi Thats good to know. While I believe Tmobile is the only carrier that even supports that fast of HSPA+ in the US, at least they are utilizing what is out there. I Love my Galaxy SIII with it's 42Mbps HSPA+ and how it doesn't seem to affect the battery life much.

@Haloruler64 well that's a bummer. You would think they would have had the best HSPA+ Radio if they didn't want to use LTE. I am sure it's still fast though regardless. I know the SIII supports 42Mbps but I never even come close to that. Of course with 21mbps you will probably only reach half that speed if your lucky. Maybe Google just feels anything faster on a phone isn't needed and If you want faster buy a tablet. Who really knows.

While LTE is the latest and greatest of the cellular world, I agree with Google and their decision. LTE does drain battery quicker than HSPA+. It would be more cost effective leaving out LTE for now since it's still not standard on all cellular networks yet. Maybe on the next Nexus? I have Tmobile as my network provider and I am very pleased with just their HSPA± Network its plenty fast and the battery life is great.. I also use a Galaxy SIII.

Just because it's been cracked doesn't mean you'll be able to go into your local Walmart or Best Buy and pick one up.

I could only assume with how much of a bad rep Sprint has when it comes to the major cellular carriers in the US, this would be a good thing for Sprint. Personally I've never heard of Softbank but that's probably because it's a Japanese company... although even then it doesn't sound Japanese. I would think though this will be a good thing since they would have better backing. Hopefully this isn't the plan for Sprint to try and Steal MetroPCS from Tmobile. Or maybe this was Sprints answer to compete with Tmobile if Tmobile should obtain MetroPCS.

Sorry to burst anyone's bubble but this is not anything worth while. Sales would be important but which devices get, or should I say use the most Web traffic, is pointless.

@KyleFrost I agree with you 100% about the built quality. One thing Apple has done right has always had good quality when it came to producing phones. Sad thing is that Samsung is now out of the picture when it comes to making some of the parts for the iphone. To me it's like Tmobile moving from HTC when it came to the MyTouch line. They went downhill and soon enough killed the brand by releasing crap using cheap parts. I am not saying Apple will do this because I know they have such high expectations for their devices but they need to take it easy. With all their lawsuits against Samsung, HTC, Motorola, etc. they will end up causing more enemies which will keep them from releasing the quality phones that the customers have come to expect from an iphone.

@Guest911 when it comes to technology Android phones have all the bells and whistles hardware wise... not all... but the higher end ones do. Even the Galaxy SIII has been said to have better technology in the screen than the iphone 5. True the o/s is very important and while I admit Apples may be cleaner it is also much more limited to what it can do. With a few tweaks here and there and customizing, an Android phone can be superior to Apples o/s although customizing may not be for everyone or the ones who are less tech savy. To answer your last comment, while not everyone may use maps 24/7, it may come in handy one day when you really may need it. Only then might you complain and realize that you paid for something, while hardly ever used, is flawed and useless.

@KarimBhaidani. Did I ever say that iphone users are stupid? No I didn't. As for plastic, I didn't mention the Samsung Galaxy S3 either. HTC, actually makes some pretty nice phones too you know, that don't have that plastic feel to them. Ok... so you aren't brainwashed, you just fell into that owning an iphone is a fashion statement... I know people personally who are like that too. In fact one guy I know wanted an iphone over his G2 because people know what an iphone is but when asked about his G2, didn't have a clue.

Of course they don't mind it. They also don't mind owning an inferior phone either when honestly there are better choices out there which do just as much if not more than an iphone. I honestly think people have become brainwashed by Apple. Also most iphone owners that I do know don't want to lose everything that they've purchased through itunes, which is hundreds of dollars, so they just stick with the iphone in hopes the next one will be an improvement and hopefully outshine the others.

You think to even call it a Galaxy S3 mini the specs would be identical to its big brother minus the screen size. Personally I think it's a waste of a phone. If the screen size of the S3 bothers you that much just wait for the future. I think the standard will be big. If anything Samsung should use the extra plastic and components to make different S3 colors or to produce more Note IIs. I mean it's cool that people prefer smaller screens but when you downgrade everything else... what's the point?

I think they could pull something off if they mixed Angry Birds with Star Wars. ROVIO is like the Pixar of the App world to me. So far everything they released has been fun and impressive to me. For example, I just picked up Amazing Alex when it was on sale for a quarter. Honestly, I didn't think they could pull off a new type of game that wasn't Angry Birds but I was wrong. I probably wouldn't have picked up the Amazing Alex game but I am actually glad I did. It's not like their games are expensive to begin with and most are free so long as you don't mind the ads which aren't too bad in their Bad Piggies game. That game sorta reminds me of the Amazing Alex and Angry Birds all rolled into one. To sum it up, I am excited to see what they have around the corner.

What a pathetic low life to have the nerve to steal from a baby. While I can see why the baby may have been playing with the phone (maybe to watch a cartoon or to keep him/her entertained while the mother shopped) it really is bad of the mother to not be so close to the child. Really its a good thing the guy only wanted the phone because he probably could have taken the baby too.
