Google While Microsoft is unveiling all about Windows Phone 8, Google ruined the party a little bit by 'leaking' all about Android 4.2, the Nexus 10 tablet, and the new Nexus phone, the LG Nexus 4. There's some pretty awesome stuff in here from Google - except for the fact the devices themselves are kind of ugly.

Might be because they want as many manufacturers on board. Current Play Store listings have a phone from LG, a 7 inch tablet from Asus, and a 10 inch one from Samsung. Pretty well spread out, imho.

Might also be due to the whole yakju debacle Samsung created with the Galaxy Nexus, where I had to flash stock "pure Google" yakju firmware to replace the yakju-xx/whatever on mine just to get timely updates. Verizon users in the US might relate to what I'm talking about here (also explains why the Nexus 4 ditches LTE).

Might also be due to Samsung not putting much weight behind the Galaxy Nexus' development. It's a decent device, but the specs and performance weren't exactly what I'd call Nexus-level.

Might be that Google actually listened to my complaints about Samsung products having terrible reliability.
