Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

First: The Verge is not the be-all-and-end-all of tech reporting and even if they pretend not to, they have their fair share of bias and everything they write should be taken with a (very big) grain of salt.


Sure but past is prologue. People said the same thing about how ICS finally made Android smooth.

I'm glad after throwing a quad core CPU and a monstrous GPU its almost as smooth as iOS and Windows Phone.

I'm glad after writing bullshit articles on Google+ denying the problem, they finally acknowledge it exists

I just have no faith in Google's initiatives. What happened to the Handset Upgrade Alliance? Crickets?

P.S I'm not downplaying Nexus 7 pricing, I'm just saying its unsustainable. They're hoping to loss lead. Its hardly remarkable, its not like they solved some engineering problem letting them make super cheap tablets. They're just deciding to lose more money. Good, but not great.
